Omelette Pages is a restaurant that took over the former Kyoto Garden space in the basement level of the Garvey Center.
It’s started by a lady who also happens to be an artist and has a studio space inside the Garvey Center.
During the week from 7:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., you can find owner, Veronica Laflin making omelettes from scratch.
It all started a couple of years ago when Laflin noticed there weren’t any food options down at the Garvey Center in the morning. She asked management if she could start slinging omelettes. They agreed and she started a little mini-omelette cart.
Word started to pick up about Omelette Pages, people were hungry, so Laflin renovated the former Kyoto Garden space to expand the business. Now Laflin makes omelettes in the morning while her husband does made from scratch croissants, cinnamon rolls and bagels. She has recently added a salad bar as well.
Since it was my first time, I was strictly there for the omelette. There was no physical menu, but was told an omelette would be $6. She asked what I wanted in my omelette and differed to her on what she wanted to toss in there.
In the end, I got what felt like everything but the kitchen sink (and black olives). As I observed her making my breakfast, she treated it almost like a piece of art. She was meticulous and calculated in how she beat the eggs, prepared the veggies, everything. I was impressed.
More impressive though was the meal itself. It was a thick, hefty and filling omelette. Due to my busy schedule, I typically don’t make it out for breakfast. And when I do, I rarely order omelettes, but this made me second guess that decision. Her omelette was fantastic and perfectly executed.
So hopefully, the secret is now out and Omelette Pages picks up even more business. If you want a picture-perfect omelette, head on down to the Garvey Center in the morning.
As mentioned, there was no real physical menu at Omelette Pages, but there was this on the wall.
