The griddle masters at Eagles Nest Café sizzle succulent breakfast and lunch plates using 55% locally procured ingredients. Dabble in edible architecture by building your own omelet ($7.25) or tackling the meaty mortars of Mike's Monster ($7.99), a four-egg engineering feat erected with sausage, cheese, and smothers of gravy. Friendly servers deliver warm plates of maple-soaked french toast ($6.25) to guests all day, even while lunch-goers wrap talons around crispy chicken wraps resting in nests of french fries ($6.99). Eagles Nest Café also flaunts a burger menu packed with nine types of patties ($6.25 to $8.40) to stop stomachs from crooning hunger-pained songs in the voice of Michael McDonald.
Open strictly for breakfast and lunch, Eagles Nest Café buzzes with lively clamor from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday–Sunday. Short-pours of coffee audibly stream into ceramic mugs, and plates clink amid the exposed brick walls and little ones noshing on their own selections from the Little Eaglet menu—lustrous feather coat not required.
Eagles Nest Cafe
When Eagles Nest owner Sarah Sowles says her restaurant is filled with smiling faces, she means it—the grins of well-fed customers brighten the first page of her lunch-and-breakfast menu. She aims to keep her morning patrons happy with favorites such as wet breakfast burritos that glisten beneath a ladleful of sausage gravy and custom three-egg omelets that can be filled with corned beef or veggies. And since her café serves breakfast all day, guests can stop in anytime for a stack of blueberry pancakes or some biscuits and gravy. Diners have plenty of options for lunch, too. They can customize burgers, capping prime-steak patties with a choice of three toppings before having their name branded into the bun. Also on the menu are wraps that envelop buffalo chicken and ranch dressing and baja citrus chicken salads that layer pecans and cranberries beneath a raspberry vinaigrette.
