Found another great breakfast place in KC! It’s been there for several years, but we only discovered it recently.
Just a few blocks south of the Plaza on Main Street, Eggtc. is next door to Minsky’s Pizza (same owners). On weekend mornings, expect a wait. And expect good food!
As is so often the case, I ordered an Eggs Benedict (on whole wheat toast, to make it a smidge healthier).
Tender, juicy, flavorful ham; not too thick, not too thin. The egg perfectly done. Nice job!
They offer nine different kinds of omelettes, plus a “build your own” option. With eight kinds of meat, seven kinds of cheeses, 16 different vegetable choices, and a partridge in a pear tree… (sorry!) …you ought to be able to find or create something that suits your fancy. My friend ordered an omelette off the menu: Apple and Goat Cheese omelette, with walnuts and onion chutney. Not my cup of tea, but she enjoyed every bite.
I didn’t snap a pic of her husband’s plate, but he ordered the “Salubrious” omelette — isn’t that a great name? It’s not often a menu item has you pulling out your smart phone to look something up on dictonary.com! (Salubrious means “conducive or favourable to health; wholesome”.) It contains Monterey Jack and Swiss cheeses, asparagus, black olives, mushrooms and red onions, topped off with red onion chutney.
They also serve frittatas, crepes, breakfast sandwiches, breakfast pizza, biscuits and gravy, pancakes, waffles, french toast… you’d be hard-pressed to find a breakfast favorite that’s not offered here.
There were eight of us at the table; I don’t remember what everyone ordered, but I do know there were no empty plates at the end! It’s a wee bit loud, but the service was prompt and friendly.
