“Amazing Breakfast Menu prepared with the artistry of a trained Chef”
Reviewed November 7, 2013 via mobile

We arrived in Philadelphia on a red eye and drove through south Philly to find this amazing cafe on a quiet side street and parked easily. The menu immediately excited us with inventive French toasts served with vegan cremes , Chantilly , scented mars spines and a plethora of fruit melanges. The food was stunning! We are from SF and usually find breakfast food in the east heavy and predictable. This was just beautiful and reasonable - the baked oatmeal with golden raisins, walnuts, Chantilly and brown sugar - the smoked salmon Benedict - the Pumpkin Cheesecake French toast (light as a feather made with Brioche) - the Endless choices. Great service, nice interior, and everything beautifully presented. We will return.

“A hidden gem in S Philly”
Reviewed November 6, 2013 via mobile

Breakfast here is and always has been my favorite meal . After working nights I drive down for a great breakfast. They open early . Cash only but an onsite atm is handy. A small fee for takeout containers that are green. Parking is street only. Creme brulee french toast is my favorite. Fresh made sausage is a great side. The teas are great and cane sugar cubes are a nice touch. Service is always good. Ask for a side of hot sauce and have your date order the kitchen sink so you can steal a few bites ! All around never a bad meal. The first site is always my favorite and the best .

“I Will Eat Green Eggs...”
Reviewed October 27, 2013 via mobile

This spot was a random encounter. Myself and the other 16 people I was with were walking down the road around 10ish at night looking for somewhere to eat. That's when we encountered Green Eggs. Not only was the food delicious and of large quantity, the staff themselves were great as well. They were talkative, kind and helpful with directions. They also were sure to point us in the right direction of fun things to do at night in Philly. To make the night that much better we received three complimentary orders of red velvet pancakes. We will be sure to stop by when we come back to town.
