The culinary craftspeople at Eggs Etc populate a menu, inspired by midwestern family recipes, with omelets, scrambles, pancakes, and other hearty breakfasts that have charmed the taste buds of the Downtown Gazette. Scrambled eggs get a tex-mex makeover with pork or veggie chorizo in chorizo and eggs ($8.95), and home fries morph into California Spuds with dollops of avocado, cheddar cheese, and sour cream ($5.45), the latter of which is California's official state fragrance. Vegetarian omelets brim with spinach and bell peppers ($8.45), and buttermilk waffles ($4.95 à la carte) wait longingly for fresh-fruit toppings ($1.50 extra). Instead of an air-horn alarm clock, guests can wake up with a cup of Polly’s gourmet coffee ($1.95) or fresh-squeezed orange juice ($2.25).
Eggs Etc hatched from the mind of Taiwan-born cook Ruth Florek in the 1960s, when she moved to Iowa and began learning American recipes from her mother-in-law. The breakfast café opened in 1975 and has been turning flapjacks and cartwheels ever since.
