A well-balanced breakfast consists of protein to build muscles, carbohydrates to boost energy, and long poles to prevent nasty falls off the tightrope. Maintain edible equilibrium with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of omelets, pancakes, and gourmet burgers at The Egg & I Cafe, valid at all two Mesa locations.
Early-rising chefs whisk together a breakfast lover's menu, served amid chicken-themed décor in the burgundy dining room or alfresco on the outdoor patio. A Meggsican three-egg omelet ($8.50) adds international flair to morning meals, and the fluffy casing and lobster-rich core of the laguna beach omelet ($9.25) scrumptiously awakens tongues from nightmares about pronouncing five-syllable words. Diners can satisfy doughy hankerings by noshing on six varieties of pancake ($5.50–$6.95) or the quadrilateral impressions of a belgian waffle crowned with berries and cream, cinnamon apples, or bananas and walnuts ($6.95). Lemon-infused ground sirloin, cracked pepper, and mozzarella top the house burger's exclusive ingredients list ($9.50), and a spread of sandwiches ($6.95–$8.95) trounce four city blocks of hunger when lined up end to end.
