I had lunch today at the West Egg Cafe with my colleague Saibal Mukhopadhyay. This was my first lunch there; I've had breakfast there several times. I'm a sucker for their chocolate chip pancakes. I know that's not very imaginative on my part, but I'm a sucker for chocolate in the morning.
Today I had the veggie bean burger, which was very well spiced. It was softer than the average veggie burger, which I found appealing. It also came on a whole wheat bun, perhaps thanks to the vegetarian/health vibe, but I appreciated the touch. I also treated myself to a red velvet cupcake. The cupcake itself was good, but it didn't have a cream cheese icing. The icing was a handmade but simple sugar icing. Even if they didn't want to go for the cream cheese, I think that a more buttery icing would be called for.
West Egg Cafe is in White Provisions, which is one of the new developments on the west side. It's a very nice location and they have plenty of parking, in contrast to some of the restaurants in this area. We'll see how this part of town develops.
