Green Eggs Café (Philadelphia, PA)
212 S 13th Street, Philadelphia 19107
Green Eggs Café is a “brunch style restaurant/cafe that takes pride in serving the highest quality fare while maintaining an eco-conscious philosophy”. It has four locations in Philadelphia. This one downtown is quite big, has a modern interior, and a mixed crowd of (unionized white) workers, hipsters of all races, and young professionals. It has an extensive brunch menu with all the usuals: eggs benedict, French toast, omelets, waffles.
I am going for a basic breakfast: Eggs Your Way ($10): 3 eggs over medium, bacon, toast, and rosemary potatoes. The eggs are undercooked, the bread is grossly sweet, and the bacon is neither crispy nor particularly tasty. The potatoes taste fat and salty. The (small) glass of Orange Juice ($3) is ok.
