That One Breakfast with Scrambled Eggs, Bacon, House Potatoes with Cheese and Onions, and a Pancake (First and Second Visit), and Crepes with Strawberry Compote and Yogurt with Granola (Third Visit)
This post is long overdue,I realize. As are a few others (can we say "anniversary dinner in December!?!"), but better late then never, right?
I had been to East Egg once before. The one in Portage. For lunch. And, was unimpressed. Nothing too fancy. The food was ok. I wasn't planning on going back.

East Egg was highly recommended by them. And, we love breakfast, truly we do. I was not surprised by the bright and cheery decor. It was much like the location in Portage. Bright colors. Lots of sun. A nice spot to wake you up! They also recommended several items from the menu including corned beef hash. Mr. Foodie jumped on that option, while I declined and ordered a large breakfast for my hungry self.
The food was delivered to our table, and it didn't look unlike other breakfasts I had. And, in many ways, it is a common breakfast-type joint. But, the difference is the care that goes into crafting these plates and the fresh ingredients they are using.

I was so blown away with East Egg for breakfast (did I mention that all their breakfasts are under $7???) that we went back the following weekend when my parents came for a visit. And, I ordered the exact same thing. (And, note the picture, Lil' Foodie was in on the fun this time!)
I was there again this past weekend with a group of other mom friends and their babies and branched out to try the crepes with strawberry compote and the yogurt with granola. Another home run. The crepes were thicker than I am used to with crepes, but they were soft and the strawberries were the perfect compliment.
All that said, I would go back to the one in Portage to try breakfast, though the Richland location is more conveniently located to our home.
Do not overlook East Egg. There are several locations in the area. The breakfast is outstanding!
