An independent restaurant, bakery, and coffeehouse with a vintage design evocative of the Westside’s historic industrial corridor, serving breakfast all day, lunch, dinner, and weekend brunch, comfort sweets, and locally-roasted Batdorf & Bronson coffee.
West Egg Cafe, which is led by Chef Andrew Smith, is open from 8 am to 3 pm throughout the week and 8 am to 4 pm on Saturdays and Sundays, and regardless of the time you pull up to the Westside eatery, you can always look forward to enjoying its delicious breakfast offerings. The all-day breakfast spot boasts plenty of tasty menu items with locally inspired names, including the Peachtree Plate (two eggs, biscuit, brown sugar bacon, fried green tomatoes, and pimiento cheese grits), the Georgia Benedict (turkey sausage patties, two eggs, turkey sausage gravy over split biscuit, and choice of roasted garlic grits or skillet potatoes), and the Westside Pileup (skillet potatoes topped with onions, peppers, cheddar cheese, bacon, and two eggs), among others.
Yeah, you’re going to wait a while if you’re hoping to have a weekend brunch at this Atlanta classic. But, it’s worth it. And, anyway, while you wait you can order some coffee and a pastry to snack on from the coffee counter. Once you get seated (in the dining room or covered patio), that’s when the fun really begins. Order one of their creative twists on a breakfast staple like the churro waffle or the banana bread French toast. Even their tofu scramble with vegetarian sausage and veggies is delicious. FYI: They use coffee from local roaster Batdorf & Bronson.
