In March, one breakast restaurant will be departing Wichita but it will open the doors for another one. For the longest time and I don’t know why, I’ve never been to The Good Egg. They will be closing down shop in a couple months but the owners will be opening up the second HomeGrown around the corner in the former Backwoods space around that same time. I didn’t want to be one of those people who never got to try The Good Egg so I met up with a friend for lunch to give it a go.
2141 N Bradley Fair Pkwy
Wichita, KS 67206
Daily: 6:30am – 2:30pm
The interior of the restaurant really fit the whole vibe of Bradley Fair. It was extremely clean, bright, and inviting. We were greeted by multiple people upon our arrival and seated quickly.
After glancing through the menu, we both knew fairly quickly what we wanted. I settled for the spicy crepe – eggs. Marinated, grilled chicken breast, guacamole, green chilies, grilled onion, jalapeno, chili verde sauce, diced bacon and pico de gallo sounded really good at the time. My friend settled on the four peaks French toast which was four stacked French toast halves covered with freshly sliced strawberries, bananas, blueberries, caramelized pecans, caramel sauce, cream cheese frosting, powdered sugar, whipped cream, cinnamon and nutmeg. Then he added a side of bacon.
While everything sounded good, the visual was so much better. Portion sizes were generous and presentation were spectacular. My crepes were light and delicious. I loved the chili verde sauce so much I asked for a second little cup of it to drown my food in. While the crepes weren’t spicy as I would have liked, it was extremely flavorful.
I’m not even sure my friend said a single word while eating his french toast and bacon which is always a good sign. My opinion is if you do more of your talking while eating, then the food isn’t memorable enough to distract you. Good food always take your focus and attention away. I’m pretty sure that was the case with my friend who left with a happy plate.
We had a really great stop for lunch. From the quality service, friendly staff, clean restaurant and good food, it’ll be sad to see The Good Egg go away but perhaps the same company owned HomeGrown will be able to improve on everything and make it ten times better. The entire staff of The Good Egg will be retained for the second HomeGrown so that’s a key positive.
Remember you only have until March to try The Good Egg. No official date has been given on the close but get it now while you can.
Here’s the menu:
