After last call in Canton, the drinking masses need not wait until dawn to begin their recovery. Simply Marie's (3023 Elliott St., 410-342-0822)—a new carryout specializing in breakfast that feeds the soul—is quickly becoming an end-of-the-night staple. Open from midnight to 1 p.m. weekends (and 6 a.m. to 1 p.m. weekdays), its various combinations of eggs and swine hit the spot at any time. Omelets ($7.50-9.50), pictured, are made with three eggs and ample portions of meats, cheese, and vegetables. Served with a heaping helping of home fries or grits, a combo (which includes toast) is a deliciously satisfying meal. Breakfast sandwiches ($4-6.50) with huge slabs of bacon or sausage (or turkey and vegan varieties) can be devoured on bread, or an English muffin, bagel, or croissant for an extra buck. Then, there's scrapple. Perfectly crisp on the outside, mushy on the inside, it's an instant cure for whatever ails you. Wash it down with a straightforward cup of coffee, a necessity whether you're trying to last until sunrise or waking up with it.
