Number 68: Pineapple upside-down pancakes from Snooze

It's easy to flip for the flapjacks at Snooze, the mod breakfast barn for early-morning hipsters and brunchers who stumble in, some in their flannels, to congregate at the counter in the crescent-shaped vinyl booths for steaming jolts of java, Bloodies to counteract the bleary eyes and sustenance to soak it all up. Not everything at Snooze rocks our world, but the pineapple upside-down pancake, a saucer-size sphere bundled with squares of caramelized pineapple, fairy-dusted with powdered sugar and dolloped with a scoop of cinnamon butter that melts into rivers of sweetness, is one of those unassailable wonderments bestowed upon us by the breakfast gods.
