I commented on a Green Eggs Facebook post a month ago asking them how many vegan options they have on their menu. The said they had 8 or so on the regular menu.
While, I’m not really vegan, I don’t eat meat and avoid large quantities of dairy at all costs. I will eat eggs occasionally, DON’T JUDGE ME.
I went to Green Eggs with a few friends and we ordered like truckers in from a cross-country haul.
We ordered two omelets, two burritos, and a communal French Toast and Special Donut. There was a ton of food and every bite was truly amazing. Just ask Eddie & Patty, It was brilliant dahlings wasn’t it!
I’d like to highlight:
Peanut Butter Crunchy French Toast – $11
Brioche slices stuffed with whipped crunchy peanut butter cream cheese, topped with chantilly cream, fresh berry compote, and blackberry coulis.
Breakfast Burrito – $12 (I ordered the vegan option)
Habañero tortilla with eggs, corn, house made pork chorizo, potatoes, peppers, and onions, tex mex cheese topped with Pico de Gallo, sour cream, avocado, whole black beans, and fire roasted red pepper black bean sauce.
These two dishes were award-winning! Note: When you order the burrito ask for extra black bean sauce when you order. (It took 15 minutes and asking 3 times to get an extra side of it)
The food is ridic, off the charts amazing! I mean, like I was full and forced every ounce of the vegan burrito down. I usually don’t like breakfast burritos, but this wasn’t over the top spicy or to herbal-ie/tomato-ie. It was a great balance. The table shared the french toast. A fancy schmancy PB&J made out of French Toast. A definite must try!!!!!!
I will tell you that virtually every time I’ve been to Green Eggs, the service is pretty bad. This time, I brought it to the attention of the woman who seemed to be in charge. Rather than acknowledge my situation and try to make up for it, she became defensive and began to explain, why I had bad service. NEWSFLASH….. I don’t care why the service was bad, I just care that it was bad. It’s a typical Philly mentality, “You will accept mediocrity.” I just can’t help but feel it would have been better handled if someone said, “Oh, I’m sorry, here’s a free coffee on us……”
