They say a complete nutritious breakfast is key to starting your day, but your own morning routine has some holes in it, and they're preferably a mix of glazed, chocolate, and jelly filled. Incorporating the rest of the donut into breakfast sandwiches and more: Bleeding Heart Bakery & Cafe.

The first full-service joint from the Food Network fixture punk-rock bakery, BHBC's a collab with the owners of adjacent Roots Handmade Pizza and The Fifty/50 that's ultra-calorizing breakfast faves from within its gigantic, vibrantly colored, looks-like-a-'50s-diner-owned-by-a-rock-star digs, whose storefront window offers pedestrians a view of the confectionary process (so, Guy Fieri won't be the last person in America getting frosted tips). Naturally there's an egg, meat & cheese breakfast sandwich on a tempura-battered deep-fried vanilla bean donut, but less obvious indulgences range from fried green tomato benedict (brioche, country ham, bacon hollandaise), to the caramel mousse-covered Veruca Salt Waffle, which can't decide whether to close out with "Seether" or "Volcano Girls". There's also a massive stockpile of sweet treats including ginger molasses cookie sandwiches (w/ green tea filling), roasted peach & sweet corn ice cream, and non-egged donuts like the pecan 'n custard-filled, dulce de leche-glazed Machete, which should probably be cut out of your diet.

On weekends they're serving brunch for 57 consecutive hours (7a Fri to 4p Sun), and long-term plans include the addition of a liquor license, so now your breakfast can include an entirely new hole: the one you drink yourself into.
