Wonderful Breakfast

Wonderful breakfast menu. The pimento cheese grits are delicious. The biscuit is light and flaky. You can't go wrong eating here.

Our flight was delayed into Atlanta and we slept in. Needed a good mix of breakfast and lunch choices that would please the whole family. The grilled chicken salad was superb--the perfect blend of lettuce, tomatoes, corn and cheese with delectable marinated grilled chicken. Buttermilk ranch was flavorful too. Hubby built his own omelet which was hot, fluffy and packed... More

My daughter took me here for breakfast on my birthday. We waited over an hour for a table and the place was so loud we couldn't even carry on a conversation. The food was nondescript. We were very disappointed. I've had better breakfasts at IHOP.

I've been traveling a lot this summer and found the Best Breakfast here! I had the Peachtree Plate - pimento cheese grits, biscuit, fried green tomatoes and more. The biscuit was so light and the bacon was absolutely the best! It would probably be worth waiting for an outside table. If you're looking for breakfast - this is it!!

The coffee was fabulous so we knew we were in for a brunch fit for royality! We had the Salmon Benedict with English Muffin, favors made you say Mmmmmmmmm this is so tasty! Portions... More

Outstanding! You want to come here for breakfast. Every item we tried was absolutely delicious. The coffees not only had the handcrafted artistry in the foam on top but were crazy good. Chicken and waffles delighted my taste buds and hunger. Skillet potatoes - just plain yummy.

We arrived at West Egg around 10 am on Sunday morning and found a good size crowd. We were quickly able to order coffee while we waited. We were quoted 30 minute wait and fortunately, only had to wait about 20. The service was good, food delicious and portions huge. Left very full and didn't have to eat again until... More

Read about West Egg probably about a year ago and tucked it away for another day. Last Sunday was the day it popped in mind as we were wanting brunch after church. Well so did lots of others but there lies the reason.. The wait was not long and nice to sit outside with fab coffee while waiting! So loved... More

We had a very good meal here! Service was fast and good. Lots of interesting benedicts. Great biscuits! The coffee cup was never empty even though they were very busy. The tofu scramble was enjoyed. The challah French toast was great. The portions were good without being too much. Some people thought the turkey gravy was too thin. Our group... More

I live in Midtown and we frequent West Egg for weekend brunch. To avoid waiting get there early (like 8:30-9:00). If you arrive later don't sweat it; it's worth the wait. Great, unique dishes and a nice coffee/espresso selection. I like the fried green tomato blt or the pancakes. Service is always efficient and friendly.
