"We kept saying, “Why doesn’t Madison have this?!” “Madison NEEDS this!!!” as we scribbled down every detail of our menu: small, simple and everything breakfast."
This is happening during our epiphany at a no-name restaurant off the beaten cobblestone streets of Antigua, Guatemala in the summer of 2010. We shared an oversized cushion on a bench of a dark hookah bar, eating and drinking things we couldn’t pronounce. We willingly wasted 50 or so napkins as we scribbled down ideas that little did we know, would lead us to where we stand today; on the verge of opening our first restaurant. We kept saying, “Why doesn’t Madison have this?!” “Madison NEEDS this!!!” as we scribbled down every detail of our menu: small, simple and everything breakfast. Over the next three and a half years, we have gone through every detail. We wanted to give you guys the perfect breakfast anytime, day or night. We hope you like it. Ladies and gentlemen, we give you Short Stack Eatery.
All of our dishes are made from scratch with fresh, organic, and local ingredients. We work with a variety of purveyors from Wisconsin to source the best products possible. We have visited factories and farms in order to understand where our food comes from and build lasting relationships with farmers in the great state of Wisconsin. We also offer tasty gluten-free, vegan, and dairy-free options!

So much love goes into our bloody with fresh pureed carrots, cucumbers, celery, shallots, garlic, beets, dill, red peppers, jalapenos, serranos, habaneros, and tomatoes. Mixed with a house-made pickle brine, fresh lime, lemon, and cucumber juice. A dash of spices, Tito's vodka, and a hint of agave nectar, it is the definition of freshness. Topped with a Sriracha salt-rim, a house-pickled veggie skewer, and a Miller High Life shorty.
