Memphis Bar-B-Que Omelet at Cockadoo's 

I'm thrilled to have a new breakfast spot downtown, especially one that is so bright and cheery at 7 a.m. Thanks to the colorful pillows, multi-patterned accoutrements, and free-flowing coffee, Cockadoos is a great place to get the day off to a good start. I especially like the fact that customers — ones like me who don't like to speak too much in the early morning — can Facebook or Tweet in their orders ahead of time. Their signature Memphis bar-b-que omelet is definitely something to crow (and Tweet) about. This three-egg powerhouse is filled with a hearty serving of pulled pork, grilled to perfection and held together with a sweet embrace of mild provolone cheese. The barbecue sauce, which could make or break this unusual combo, definitely makes it. It's tangy, a little sweet, and downright delicious. (If you like your 'cue with some kick, add a dash of hot sauce.) With a cathead biscuit as accompaniment, this is a breakfast you can easily split, which is probably a good thing, since one of the dish's selling points is that it will "put some meat on your bones." Or don't split it. I won't tell. — Stacey Greenberg
