"I just remember our bill at the end of the night was absolutely outrageous. We might have spent all of our money right there on the second night of our trip. But we didn't care."
I was referring to our bill 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.
