Located in the district of Howell Mill, West Egg Cafe is one of Atlanta's favorite breakfast dining place. Really cool hip place that also has good food. I would recommend their Double Stack Turkey Club - awesome sandwich! Since it's one of Atlanta's favorite, expect a long wait time if you're hitting their rush hours, especially during lunch.

We were in the area and had not been here for way too long. I tried the breakfast special that was a braised pork marinated in coca cola with maple glazed ham, peppercinis and served with an over easy egg on a roll. It came with a side of tossed mixed greens in a light dressing. This is what makes... More

Everyone passing us said it was worth the wait and boy were they right lemonade and egg and turkey biscuits with grits. Pool so good. Now I am inspired to make those spiced garlic grits.

Our last stop during our trip to Atlanta and we weren't disappointed. This was the 3rd breakfast place we visit based on recommendations and trip advisor. A long wait, but I would do it again. Service, atmosphere, view and food was excellent. Very lively and great for groups, couples and family.

Love this place. It's my go-to brunch spot when I don't feel like venturing out and trying a new place (and there is always a new place to try in Atlanta). I always get the Peachtree Plate. The brown sugar bacon and the pimento cheese grits are to DIE for! And the salted caramel latte? Yum! Expect a wait of... More

My dear friend and I were on a road trip to Florida and decided to stop at West Egg because of its conveniently short distance from the interstate and the charming Gatsby-themed title. The service was friendly and impeccable. I ordered an omelet with skillet potatoes and a warm biscuit and it was the best breakfast I had had in... More

Went for a late breakfast/brunch and had to wait. It was WELL worth the wait! The food and service were both great! Definitely would recommend it to anybody who doesn't want just another chain restaurant.

Try the fried green tomatoes and goat cheese with jam starters. Both are very good. Had the fried egg sandwich. Huge sandwich. Very tasty. The desserts looked good but was too full to have any. We had a long wait for lunch but it was worth it. They did not make good use of their tables. There were 4- 4... More

Great spot found through recommendations on Trip Advisor. Omelette, waffles and the mash up were all quite wonderful. Great ambience and energy in the eclectic crowd. Attentive service and yummy food. What more could you ask for?
