I do not usually review restaurants but I think that I may begin to do so. This post is my first entry into the world of the culinary arts. Here is a blurb from the Eggtc. website:
The friendly staff’s 100 years combined experience prepares and serves only the freshest and finest gourmet breakfasts and appetizing lunches sure to please any palate.
The eggtc. Coffee Bar features prime Costa Rican blends, and Latte, Espresso, Cappuccino, and Café au Lait note a few of our gourmet delicacies prepared hot or iced.
Several folks over the years have suggested this place to me so I was quite anxious to try it this morning with my friend Kirk. One of the main attractions was a place that served a full breakfast menu and premium coffee. Here are a few of my thoughts:
  • Coffee: My first action of the morning was returning my watered down coffee and asking the waitress to give me another mug - I thought that I had simply got a bad pot.. no such luck.. the coffee was on par with Folgers or Maxwell House even though it was a locally made brand. If you like watered down weak coffee then this might fill the bill for you.
  • Potatoes: I am not sure how it is possible to call yourself a breakfast place and not serve hash-browns. Instead they served these little cubed "breakfast potatoes" - yuk! Even I do hash-browns at home - it is just not that hard.
  • French Toast: I did  not see any reason to try the eggs (even though egg is a part of their name) since they did not offer browns. So instead I ordered the French Toast. I tried the sourdough version which was excellent but thought that the raisin version might have been a good choice as well.
  • Bacon: As many of you who read hear know, I love bacon even though I try to restrict my intake of it. I found the bacon here to be pretty good but a bit (not a lot) undercooked. There were three strips and it did have a good taste. I shared a half piece with Kirk.
  • Breakfast Burrito: Kirk said that he enjoyed it but I wonder how filling it was as he ate my third slice of French Toast.
  • Accessibility: The restaurant would have been a bit challenging to negotiate in a wheelchair as the aisles were very narrow. The restrooms (at least the mens) was very large and wheelchair accessible.
Judging by the many people standing around waiting for a seat this morning I think that my review is not in line with many who attend this wildly popular place. Even so, I felt that the place was a bit mediocre.. consequentially I give it a thumbs down.


  1. We tried a new restaurant in Hoxie yesterday. It is called Oscar's. The food was good, but very expensive. We don't give it much time because Hoxie won't, or can't support a sandwich and soup shop at $12 a meal. The coffee was very good, though. I think their main thrust is coffee and pastries.

  2. You are a brave soul to review restaurants.

  3. I felt like I was listening to Michael savage.
