As the title would indicate, if you judge the quality of a restaurant by the crowd it draws, this place must be pretty good because there is a rather large crowd milling about outside waiting for a table. It was Sunday around 11:30. I found a place to park on the street (not an easy thing to do in Atlanta)... More

Wanted Breakfast for lunch...researched this place. It is listed as a top ten in Atlanta for breakfast food. Due to the reviews reporting long wait times; my friends and I decided to go an hour before closing on a Saturday. We were able to walk right in without any delays. There is seating in the building and seating on covered... More

The food and atmosphere here are great, but the wait was ridiculous. We went early and still ended up with a 60-75 minute wait for seating. The option to purchase coffee or a drink while you wait was available, so we took advantage of that and indulged in a Mimosa or two. When our seats were ready, we were seated... More

We arrived, put our name on the list and sat outside in the sun waiting for our name to be called....and we were not disappointed. In fact, we sat at the bar and enjoyed speaking with the bartender and other staff while waiting for our food. The mimosas were lovely. The menu had so many options...I went with the special...

The food was amazing. The coffee barista could have been alittle friendlier and welcoming though. Its family & friend atmosphere. Short ribs hash.

I did not really like this experience. The wait was EXTREMELY long and the food was sparse and really not that good for the money.

We got there around 11:45 AM on a Sunday and the wait was 1 hour and 45 minutes. Unfortunately, they do not send texts or call when a table is ready, so you have to check back in if you would like to walk around to some of the surrounding shops, which is a little odd so I hope they... More

Had the Peachtree plate with poached eggs and fried green tomatoes! Biscuits and grits outstanding! Maple cured Bacon was too sweet for my taste but coffees took the edge off

Looking for breakfast while my wife had an early business meeting on Saturday, I followed TA reviews to West Egg Café. As predicted, it was packed with a 15-20 minute wait for a solo seat at the bar and a 30+ minute wait for a table. Sensing my disappointment, the hostess asked if I would like the communal table and... More

Excellent service, good breakfast, nice atmosphere. Biscuits did not really have a taste, they are flour tasting, but the rest of the breakfast was good. Wish they had some different kinds of pancakes. This is a pricey breakfast. $18 before tip for 2 eggs, bacon, grits, biscuit, half a regular Belgian waffle and a good coffee. I believe you are...
