If you find yourself in the “burbs jonesing” for breakfast, Eggsquisite Cafe is a fantastic place for breakfast and lunch. With four locations in Allen, McKinney, Rockwall and Southlake, this family restaurant is a local neighborhood favorite.
The dining room at the Allen location has high ceilings, a bright aesthetic, and fun, quirky decor. On weekends, it can seem like a diner feat with a packed house on the move. Don’t worry though; the service is efficient and the wait for a table is not long.
Their breakfast menu offers a variety of classic American dishes, including omelets, eggs Benedict, and skillets, most of which cost between $8 and $12. We ordered the traditional breakfast with a choice of ham, bacon, sausage patties, turkey bacon or apple chicken sausage, two eggs and a choice of two sides. We had a waffle on our side and it was perfect.
We also had the chicken fried steak, which had a nice coating of sauce and was cozy with two over medium eggs and hash browns. A crunchy exterior gave way to a tender bite inside. We chose pancakes for the side, which were just as delicious as the waffle but fluffier.
While a classic breakfast is always a good idea, unique savory menu items like their Spicy Cajun Chicken and Waffle and Chicken Carnitas Skillet are worth trying. For something sweet, the Creme de La Creme French Toast (stuffed French toast topped with cream, chocolate chips and whipped cream) and Cinnamon Roll Pancakes are great choices to start the day.
For something lighter, there are healthy menu options like the Iron Man Scrambler (egg whites, spinach, tomatoes, onions, and mushrooms). They also have Mickey Mouse pancakes for the kids and unlimited Segafredo for coffee lovers.
If you’re more in the mood for lunch, Eggsquisite serves burgers, sandwiches, and salads. A few fun choices include their Strawberry Pecan Salad and Venetian Chicken Panini Sandwich. If you can’t decide exactly between breakfast and lunch, opt for both with their Breakfast Burger made with eggs, bacon, hash browns and cheese.
