This review has been a long time coming. Not because we couldn’t decide how we felt about Egg Shop. But because we couldn’t get a table.
We had a feeling this might be the case when we walked down Elizabeth Street a few months ago around noon on a Saturday, and passed by a girl we hadn’t seen since sorority rush anxiously searching for Egg Shop. ‘Wait, where is Egg Shop?’ An apathetic boyfriend shrugged.
A block down, we were quoted a wait: 90 minutes. We tried again a week later, just before noon on a Sunday. An hour wait.
Egg Shop has all the elements of a popular weekend brunch venue: a Nolita location, a brightly-appointed space, and a menu largely centered around oozing yolks, avocado, bacon, and bloody marys. It also happens to be quite small, which contributes to the long lines.
Anyway, spoiler alert: we finally went to Egg Shop (on a dreary Monday right before Christmas) and very much liked it. The eggs are cooked just right, but it’s actually more about the variety of sandwiches and bowls they’re mixed into. And there’s one for pretty much everyone: whether you want your egg in a pulled pork sandwich called ‘The Beast’ or a quinoa bowl called ‘The Spandex.’
We don’t know how long you’re willing to wait in line for brunch, but we do know that Egg Shop is actually open until 1am on weekends.
OVER EASY AND OUT.
