Located in Atlanta's West Midtown. West egg is the recovery modern vintage hipster dream land. The place your hungover body craves at 11:00am. Greasy spoon? Yes and much much more. Every breakfast item priced under 10bucks. Clean white subway tile ways with concrete polished floors is the opposite of what you might think of a all day cheap cheap eating... More

Dare to be different for breakfast as we opted for their Black bean cakes and eggs. Outstanding in flavor and truly delicious! The restaurant obviously is well known by locals so be prepared to allow ample time. Service was good but the restaurant is a busy one!

The bacon is to die for. Actually I have not had a bad dish at West Egg. I always take guest to experience West Egg. I love this place!

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
