West Egg Cafe: Atlanta

posted on April 4, 2006 at 3:41 pm

I’ve never met a cupcake I didn’t like. I heard West Egg Cafe made a mean one and their breakfast wasn’t that bad. I went over for breakfast on Saturday morning after a visit to the Morningside farmer’s market in the rain. I walked in and asked for a table…I was told there was a 20 minute wait. There were like 8 tables open, not cleared and there were not that many people waiting. I went over to the coffee bar and order some coffees and bought a few baked goodies for later. I picked up some coconut cupcakes and a smores bar. The smores bar was a good idea. Kind of a brownie and smore hybrid. I liked the marshmallows and the chocolate brownie part. The bottom graham cracker crust was not the best tasting and I ending up crumbling most of it off. The cupcakes were truly divine. Not massive but small. No matter, they packed a massive coconut punch. The frosting was creamy but not sickly sweet. A truly lovely site. Ah…cupcakes.

Right…onto the breakfast. My table got the blue plate special (eggs, sausage, grits and toast) and the veggie omelet with grits. The eggs were oily and nothing special. the ingredients tasted fresh but the seemed hastily prepared. The grits…they had love. I have never had a better bowl of grits in my life. They were unbelievably rich and creamy. I don’t know what is in them but you must try them.

I do have to comment on the service. It was a mess. Most people were visibly annoyed with their servers. They seemed to be lacking staff or could just have been poorly managed. They really need to work on that…it takes away from the food.
