While they close daily at 2pm, Maddie's breakfast is decidedly worth waking up for. The space is small and sunny, with floor to ceiling windows, retro diner-style tables, and bright red chairs, all housed inside of what appears to be a slant-roofed, wood paneled, family-style home. What the eatery lacks in square footage, it makes up for in serving sizes, stacking challah french toast, frittatas and potatoes, and breakfast quesadillas onto colorful plates at top speed. Maddie's mainly serves breakfast staples -- egg and cheese sandwiches, fluffy pancakes, breakfast burritos -- along with a battery of fresh baked pastries that require a great deal of self control to pass up. For the late-comers, there are soups, salads, and sandwiches, all just as hearty and colorful as the breakfast dishes. And brunch, of course, is never complete without a selection of Maddie's breakfast cocktails.
