The Middle East in Central Square may be best known for hosting some seriously good music acts, but the small establishment sandwiched between the nightlife venue's upstairs and downstairs is currently all about awesome noms.

Back in the fall chef Hunter Jaelinked up with ZuZu Bar to bring a "decadent alternative to the every day sandwich bar." The result -- Z Rant, a combination sandwich shop and brunch spot, serving up breakfast seven days a week. And because we certainly don't have enough daily breakfast options available in this wonderful city, it's definitely worth highlighting this quirky establishment whose menu is currently killing it.


Don't worry, they haven't forgotten their musical roots; at night you'll still find the place packed with dance partiers, while their weekend brunch usually features fun electro-funk beats courtesy of DJ Leah V.


The Kathy Bates
Two crispy oat waffles piled high with fried green tomatoes, poached eggs, hollandaise sauce and avocado smash.


The Soure New Yorker
Two grilled crustinis topped with roasted roma tomatoes, flank steak, poached eggs, hollandaise and caramelized shallots.


And because breakfast is always best when followed by dessert, don't miss out on the uber-fluffy, warm and buttery Lemon and Thyme Waffle. YUM.
