Before breakfast was the first meal of the day, it was part of a midday supermeal—Dinner, Breakfast, Nash & Young. Give breakfast’s solo work its proper respect with today’s Groupon: for $8, you get $16 worth of breakfast fare at Egg Cetera.
Open for breakfast and lunch, Egg Cetera serves up traditional American fare in a cozy environment. The breakfast menu features a plethora of eggy entrees, prepared poached, scrambled, or omeletized. Test out a fork-gloves prototype by ordering the chicken-fried steak and eggs ($8.50) or a hearty helping of the biscuits and gravy ($7.50). Six omelette selections ($8.25 each) range from the classic Denver-style variety to the veggie-laden Farmers omelette. Anyone who prefers that their breakfast proteins remain inconspicuous will marvel at the surreptitious way that eggs conceal themselves within the belgian malted waffle, topped with honey-pecan butter and maple syrup ($7). Egg Cetera’s lunch menu includes salads, sandwiches, and paninis, providing an afternoon pick-me-up during slow work days and uninspired afternoons slaving over an automaton army.
Breakfast used to be simple. Just have a glass of oatmeal with a teaspoon of half-and-half and run for the school bus. These days, our evolved bodies require a bit more sustenance to jumpstart a productive weekday or hyper-productive weekend, and the freshly revamped menu at Egg Cetera won't let anyone down. Simpletons can take a pared down two-egg plate with bacon, house potatoes, or toast, but a breakfast savant might opt for the more refined eggs benedict with poached eggs, hollandaise sauce, and smoked salmon.
But Egg Cetera's chefs don't cease to emphasize the "Cetera" half of the eatery's name—the expansive menu lists an array of classic Mexican dishes: from morning-time huevos rancheros and breakfast burritos to sizzling fajitas and tamales. Mid-day diners can also gorge on BLTs and cheeseburgers while sipping on a classic soft drink or juices from a freshly squeezed piñata.
