I have cravings. Don’t you? On the search for good coffee in Paris, I ended up at Holybelly, a coffee place with a serious affinity for American breakfast.
I’ve never been a big pancake fan, and to this day, I still don’t order them first on a breakfast menu. I’d probably order eggs, a burrito, french toast, or maybe eggs benedict before I’d order pancakes, but this combination was so delicious, I’m still thinking about it months after.
The name of this dish is about as inspiring as it looks, but it’s absolutely plate-licking. I ate the whole thing! On their menu it’s called “Pancake, fried egg, pancake again, fried egg again (yes!), crispy bacon et Bourbon butter.” Pretty clear what it is, right? If I were to rename it, I would call it the ‘Brutto, ma Buono Pancake Stack‘ – on a take from the Italian cookies, Brutti ma Buoni, ugly but good. And the crispy bacon? They totally nailed it.
I’ll see about recreating it at home, but I would order it again. Here the delicious, but ugly, cross-section:
That’s what I’m craving. Pass the fork, or pass on this? What do you think?

Yum. Stacked and drizzled in bourbon butter? I’ll take it.
