Throughout the entirety of my life, I feel like I always end up on “The West Side.” Maybe it’s because I’m a West Coaster, or maybe it’s just because where I’ve lived the Sun sets in the West and I’m secretly a night owl. Who knows, but I’m always in the west, so I’m pretty sure it’s no coincidence that I’ve officially become a genuine fan of West Egg Cafe.
I was feeling productive for a Saturday morning and decided to treat myself for breakfast at West Egg. I had heard great things about it, and it has been on my list of things to do in Atlanta (checkout my post on it here). I walked in and felt like I was back home in San Francisco, the simple-stylish interior with a twist of rustic was pleasing to the eye.
Now, I’m a visual person. If your decoration skills and menu organization are up to par, I can dig it! West Egg Cafe does exactly that. I mean, look how exciting the menu looks, it practically screams, “Hey! I’m delicious!” Being a potato fanatic, I went for the skillet. They weren’t busy since it was still early, but I did wait around 35-40 minutes for my food. Luckily, I was in a forgiving mood. Once I received my plate piled with potatoes, the wait was definitely forgotten. I’m not sure what coffee they use, and did not care to elongate anyone else’s wait on service, however it was a mild breakfast blend. It was decent, but I would not recommend coming here solely for coffee. POTATOES. Go and eat all their potatoes!
The next weekend, I was lucky enough to hangout out with my ridiculously pretty friend from New York, Tiff. We’ll just call her Pretty T. When Pretty T and I came, it was an hour wait. We walked over to Ormsby’s for a drink and came back to West Egg Cafe just to order a full pitcher of Mimosas (no regrets!). This time I tried their Salmon benedicts. They were flavorful and delicious. What threw me off was that they did not come on bread, simply the salmon patty. Yay for no carbs (I totally ordered potatoes on the side, shhh). Pretty T thought the ambiance had a West coast feel to it, I told you I’m always drawn to the West! Regardless of if you prefer the East side or Southside, a visit to West Egg Cafe is a must, you won’t regret it.
