Local chef eyes the lead in nationwide breakfast sandwich contest

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – Many consider Sweet_ness 7 Cafe one of Buffalo’s hidden gems, but the Parkside neighborhood creperie is on the verge of making it into the national spotlight.

Chef Tina Zunner made a splash when he entered her Buffalo Breakfast Club sandwich into the Thomas Hometown Breakfast Battle. The baked good company invited one hundred thirty-five chefs from across the country to enter the competition as a way to celebrate its 135th anniversary.

Zunner currently sits in second place in the voting. You can help her secure a spot in the next round by voting once a day between now and Monday, September 28th. The top 16 chefs will advance to the next stage of the competition. Each time you vote, you will be entered to win a $10,000 dollar prize. If Zunner wins, she will receive a $25,000 prize.

The Buffalo Breakfast Club is on the menu at Sweet_ness 7, and features bacon, arugula, blue cheese, fried eggs, Frank’s hot sauce, and mayo layered on a Thomas English muffin.
