Make sure you have a little time on your hands as the West Egg was busy. We went on a Friday morning and the wait was decent. The staff was working diligently, so it did not seem like we waited to long. You are able to purchase coffee while you wait. The menu for breakfast was had a ton of... More

Went with the family for brunch and we all enjoyed it. We were lucky as there was no wait when we arrived. Our waitress was very friendly and patient. She even kept our little boy entertained as he colored his heart out. The food was great ... best i had in a while. I would definitely encourage people to give... More

If you've never been to West Egg, go today or tomorrow or next week. It's got a unique brunchy vibe unlike anywhere else in town (similar to Empire State South but noisier and more hip). Great breakfast foods and sandwiches and a mix of neighborhood food junkies and corporate types from Ivory towers down the street. Everyone there shares in... More

This is a great breakfast spot and worth the wait. We've been here twice while visiting Atlanta and they are always busy it seems. The black bean cakes and eggs were delicious! My husband had the beef hash, and we had a side of pancakes. I only wish my stomach was bigger to hold it all!

Was looking for a place to grab breakfast after an overnight stay in Atlanta. Stumbled upon this little gem, and can't wait to go back! Very cute decor, wonderful food (make sure to try the hummus!) and great service!

I'd heard several good things about the West Egg Cafe, so we had to visit. Upon driving up to the restaurant, we saw several people standing outside waiting. Wait was about 30-35 minutes, which is better than we were expecting given the amount of people standing outside waiting. We asked to be seated at the first available, which happened to... More

My co-workers and I enjoy going here and having breakfast for lunch. That being said, service can be really, really slow and seems to be of the lounging, take your time, weekend variety rather than I-need-to-get-back-to-work-in-an-hour variety, so I would choose another spot if you are short on time. That being said, their breakfasts are to die for good. My... More

We had a great breakfast at West Egg - the biscuits were to die for and the grits had a ton of flavor. In addition, the staff was great. Overall it was a wonderful breakfast in a modern, but comfortable environment.

Meh.. Guess I must've had an "off" experience because the "Build your own" omelette that I ordered weren't all that good. The grits tasted like the instant grits you cook in the microwave.. Service as good overall I might give it another shot..

We had a table of 10 when the restaurant was nearly empty. Service was slow and some of us had to repeatedly ask for the same missing things. Several items we ordered were on the menu but the kitchen was out of supplies needed to make the dish. My food was very good and I was happy with the inexpensive... More
