On my second trip to Philly, I stopped by the one breakfast/brunch restaurant that is a must – Green Eggs Cafe. Before I started food blogging my friends brought me to Green Eggs Cafe and that experience was life changing, I’ve thought about it for over a year. Quite frankly it should be on my top 5 breakfast places found here but since I wasn’t officially blogging I didn’t include it. I had the red velvet pancakes which obviously must still be a hit because they are still on the menu. This time I decided to try two items on their menu which proved to be difficult. After all they had 6 Eggs Benedict options and ya’ll know how I am about my eggs benny. None the less here’s a review of what we had.
Pecan Pie French Toast
You know the part at the end of your prayer when you say Amen? Say it twice because this french toast is a blessing. I have never..Ever..EVER had french toast this good. It is the perfect balance between sweet and savory and good down to the last pecan. Here’s the breakdown of this masterpiece. First you start with two pieces of challah bread dipped in cream brûlée batter….wait what? Cream brûlée batter..*insert drool* then it is stuffed with pecan pie filling *screams hallelujah* and lastly it is topped with maple syrup, vanilla streusel, chantilly cream and pecans. Go ahead and say it….AMEN! I stopped eating this only to share with my daughter (who instantly fell in love) and to breathe. If this is on the menu when you visit…get it! Don’t hesitate, don’t think about something else, like Nike says Just Do It!
You’ve heard of chicken and waffles I’m sure…but a chicken and waffle benny…that’s a whole new level. I loved that my waffle was cooked fresh..I could literally taste the waffle iron on it. The chicken was cooked well and the perfectly poached eggs with hollandaise sauce. MWAH! The rosemary potatoes were great as well but the star of this dish was definitely the chicken and waffle benny. This is a must try when you visit.
Steak and eggs
My husband ordered the steak and eggs…a more traditional breakfast staple but don’t let that fool you. The steak was cooked perfectly and seasoned well. The grits were off the chain and the eggs well, they were eggs. I think the secret was in the spinach that is was layered over. It added a sophisticated element to the entire dish.
Because no little girls meal is complete without a cup of Hot Chocolate. She didn’t share but it looked amazing lol.
There are locations in Philly and Miami so find one ASAP and stop in for Brunch.
