Go ahead and believe the hype about the cupcake here: It’s moist, it’s substantial but not heavy, and the thick, sugary icing hides deep flavors of chocolate and vanilla. If you’re going to pick up a dozen, you may as well stick around for breakfast or lunch. A bright start is the sweet and savory French toast with rosemary-roasted ham. Later, try the albacore tuna melt with local butterkase cheese and green olive aioli. Eat up, but save room for one of those cupcakes.

Southport Grocery serves up one of the best brunches in the entire city, and it's somehow incredibly cheap. The biscuits and gravy are out of this world, but it's hard to go wrong with anything of their menu.

Southport Grocery is a neighborhood staple at this point. The only tough decision you'll have to make while here is, sweet or savory? I recommend going savory and ordering a plate of cupcake or bread pudding pancakes for the table.
