The morning ritual of breakfast mirrors the elegant cosmic dance of dawn, when the sun awakes to crack and scramble comets and then drink the Milky Way straight from the carton. Similarly rise and shine with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of breakfast fare and sandwiches at Eggie’s Restaurant, located on Fulton Avenue.
Located in a convivial eatery imbued with enticing aromas and the kitchen's ear-fetching sizzle, Eggie’s swiftly slings an ample menu of robust breakfast and lunch fare highlighted by more than 20 four-egg omelets ($9.49–$12.49). Nosh on a chili verde omelet, loaded with avocado, jalapeños, green onions, cheddar, and sour cream ($11.49), or fashion your own fluffy formation from a palette of fresh meats, veggies, and cheeses ($7.69–$10.69+). The Ultimate Breakfast ($12.49) tempts taste buds with a trio of eggs alongside hardy cuts of chicken fried steak and Cajun hot sausages, all among piping mounds of house fries or hash browns, plus pillowy piles of pancakes or french toast.
Office jockeys can grab coworkers and water coolers for a power lunch consisting of any number of bun-ensconced beauties, such as a crisp california melt ($9.69) or a third-pound burger ($7.99), teeming with grilled mushrooms and swiss cheese. Specialty cappuccinos ($2.79 each) rapidly awaken students who spent all night studying for their History of Pancake Syrups 101 exam, and fresh strawberries, bananas, and malt powder amplify Eggie’s rich chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry milk shakes ($3.99 for regular; $0.25–$0.50 for extras).
The cooks at Eggie's Restaurant have become known over the decades for the downhome diner fare they serve up daily for breakfast and lunch. Since 1977, the crew's been slinging hearty four-egg omelets stuffed with fillings such as avocado, chicken apple sausage, or chili con carne, and flipping signature buttermilk pancakes. As lunchtime patrons filter in to sit at the restaurant-long counter, the cooks swap out sausage patties for burgers on the grill, or build club sandwiches and leafy salads. Diners can grab their meals to go, or cozy up to one of the plush booths that line the enormous windows.
