At Sugar Baking Co. & Restaurant, people will wait for more than an hour for Manchego grits and lemon ricotta pancakes, not to mention the best stuffed French toast known to mankind (left). Picture three thick slices of homemade challah, dipped in milk and egg with a bit of cinnamon. Stuffed between the warm slices is a slab of brie and some fig confiture. The brie melts into a delicious ooze, and the figs add a nice fruity note.
