Great Brunch on the West Side

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... read more

Cosmopolitan surroundings and excellent breakfast. The waffles are light, fluffy and full of taste. The omelet big and loaded a'la carte. With a view to Atl skyline and trendy boutiques around this is a recommended cafe.

I was headed out of town but wanted to catch breakfast before I hit the road. Got here about 15 minutes early on a Sunday and there were people waiting outside. Good sign, right? Went with the classic eggs Benedict and it was fantastic. Freeze squeezed orange juice made for a nice accompaniment. Great atmosphere and easy parking. Would definitely... More

Stopped in driving through Atlanta, and was super easy to get to from 75, with free parking garage right behind. We waited less than 5 minutes, and had a perfect little corner table. We ordered a chocolate milkshake, cappuchino, Georgia Benedict and a biscuit with egg, cheese and bacon. I can't even pick a favorite because they were all so... More

I Love West Egg! One Word: Consistent West egg is good whether you are coming in for breakfast, lunch , or dinner. The staff is very friendly, and the food is consistently good. I visit often, and if you are on trip advisor looking for a new place to try you should check it out! Best Breakfast Dish- Westside Pileup,... More

I woke up hungover and wanted a yummy brunch. I found this place online and it was delicious! There was about a 20 min wait, but we found seats at the bar. The place is roughly 15, 20 min away from the CNN center. If you're a brunch person, go here!

This place always has a ridiculous line. One day we finally bit the bullet and committed to it. Arrived at 10:30 on a Sunday, ate at noon. Food was good but not particularly memorable; service was slow even though there were plenty of open tables. French toast was tasty and enough to take home.

This restaurant features all-day breakfast and even though it's kind of a "no-frills" atmosphere, it's certainly got all-around good service. I'm so pleased to have had a chance to eat here. I ordered the Benedict Burger (but with fried egg white as opposed to an egg over medium as is listed on the menu), wolfed it down, and was looking... More

We enjoyed our trip into the west side of the city for a weekend breakfast and were thrilled by the activity and excitement that shows that Atlanta is a growing and prospering city. I had a great cup of chai latte while I waited a pleasant 30 minutes for our table, and enjoyed eggs Benedict done quite nicely. A couple... More
