Incredible edible egg entrees

Easter brings eggs to mind. These breakfast destinations offer some of the city’s more intriguing egg dishes – notably scrambles and fun twists on eggs Benedict.


University Center

Breakfast Republic offers Benedicts and scrambles. Benedicts – such as the Crab and Crawfish Cake with blackberry-jalapeño jam and crisped guajillo – feature cage-free poached eggs and gluten-free hollandaise sauce over sourdough muffins plus house potatoes. The three-egg Portuguese Linguisa Sausage scramble mixes house hot sauce, bell pepper and more. Opt for the Brussels sprouts-potatoes-bacon add-on. Wait for your table in hard-boiled-egg-shaped seats; start with a prosecco, kombucha, beer or cocktail.


Sand Canyon Plaza

Cheery and bustling Everyday Eatery beckons with a pair of winning three-egg scrambles. The Morning Market Scramble features roasted zucchini, spinach, kale, tomatoes and shallots alongside a neatly sliced half avocado. The Bacon, Cheddar and Roma Tomato is generous with its starring ingredients. Both are presented with brekkie potatoes and a choice of delicious toast and strawberry jam or salad greens. There’s lots of umbrella-shaded outdoor seating.


Harvard Place Shopping Center

They do a legit Chilaquiles with tortilla chips, sunny-side up eggs, Mexican cheese, crema and avocado. Another favorite is the House Benedict with humanely raised Beeler’s ham, serrano aioli, hollandaise and paprika. For lighter fare, try the Egg Sandwich made with custard eggs, cheddar and Beeler’s bacon on a sesame brioche bun.
