My mom is in town from Louisiana and we wanted to go out and eat breakfast together after dropping the kids off to school.
So, she and I checked out EggHaus Tuesday for breakfast.
As we approached the building we immediately noticed the bright yellow accents. A great look. The black, white and yellow color pallet was eye catching and clean looking.
EggHaus has a nice outdoor seating area for outdoor dining. It was a rainy day so we decided not to sit outside.
We entered the building and the decor and feel of the restaurant was very welcoming. One of the first things I immediately noticed was the bright yellow, HELLO sign on the floor. Nice touch.
The beautiful floral wall was one of my favorite spots in the restaurant. A great focal point and spot for their merchandise.
We approached the counter and the first thing that we spotted was the delicious pastries in a glass case. Mouthwatering.
There were handheld menus as well as a visual board right behind the counter. After perusing the menu, we placed our orders.
But first coffee, my mom wanted the Vanilla Cappuccino.
I ordered a Caramel Latte. The coffee was really good. Nicely presented in each coffee mug.
Now for what we really came for, the food. The croissants were stunning. Visually appealing.
I had the rose croissant and my mom had the lavender croissant. Lovely choice.
The croissants were buttery with a sweetness and edible flowers on top. I loved that the croissant only had the icing on one side. Allowing for the softness and buttery flavor of the croissant to shine through.
We also tried the Cerveza breakfast taco. The taco was served on a corn tortilla topped with cage free eggs, ground chuck, bell peppers, grilled onions, simmered in German Pilsner and house aioli.
The taco was really good. The flavors worked well. The house aioli was delicious. My only complaint about the taco is that we wish we would have ordered two instead of one.
EggHaus also has Specialty Kolaches. Kolaches that are available in either savory or sweet flavors. Options like Sweet Cream Cheese, Rueben, Apple Sage sausage and so much more.
We kept it simple and tried the Pulled pork kolache. The kolache was delicious. The bread was moist and yummy. The pulled pork filling was good but it wasn’t a lot at all. The kolache was smaller than we thought it would be but I guess depending on the flavor the size is different.
In addition to Kolaches, Croissants and Pastries, EggHaus also serves sandwiches. The Pretzel Grilled Cheese sounded wonderful.
The sandwich included cage free soft scrambled eggs, American cheese, cheddar, hickory smoked bacon, basil aioli on a fresh baked pretzel bun.
The pretzel bun was so soft. The sandwich was presented nicely. The toppings were even throughout the sandwich which allowed that each bite had some of each ingredient. The basil aioli added an additional level of flavor to a wonderful sandwich.
Overall, the food was fantastic at EggHaus. The food was presented nicely. Every detail of the restaurant was well thought out.
The decor, the menu items, the presentation of each dish, the accent pillows, coffee bar, accent wall and so much more. I loved the entire look of the restaurant.
My only complaint about EggHaus is that the customer service is lacking. Smile, welcome your guest, thank them for coming. I believe that they have room to improve in that area. Other than that I believe that they have what it takes to have a successful restaurant for a long time!
