Brunch Meets Eggspectations

J traveled back to his hometown this weekend so I was left to fend for myself. I planned several activities with friends and family so that I would stay occupied while he was away. 

Luckily, a college friend happened to be coming in to town to visit my cousin the same weekend so we used this opportunity to catch up over brunch! It worked out great since we don't get to see my cousin often since we live on opposite sides of town, so this was a perfect excuse to get the "triplets" back together. 

We agreed on meeting in the middle between our houses at the new restaurant, Eggspectations, located off of 1604 in between Blanco & Stone Oak. Since our office is just down the street, I've been eyeing this brunch spot for a while.

Knowing it was still a new brunch spot on the San Antonio foodie radar, I called ahead to make reservations. Nothing dulls the brunch high like waiting over an hour and a half to eat breakfast. 

Instead of taking reservations on the weekends, they recommend patrons download the "No Wait" app to grab a spot in line prior to coming in. I downloaded the app, grabbed our spot in line, and headed to the restaurant around 10 a.m. Thank goodness I did because when we got there, a large crowd had already formed. We were seated literally 5 minutes after walking in. Score! 

Brunch was filled with a lot of laughter, coffee, & eggs! Of course, before everyone dug into their meals, I had each take a picture of their plate. "DON'T TOUCH YOUR FOOD YET! I need a picture for the blog!" Yep. I was that girl.

The menu was huge and had every breakfast and lunch item you could think of: omelettes, French toast, pancakes, flat breads, salads, sandwiches, etc. We each got something different, and were all happy with our choices. 

Cousin A ordered the All-American Breakfast complete with sausage, scrambled eggs, and delicious breakfast potatoes.

Our friend ordered the Breakfast Poutine, something I had never heard of prior to Saturday. It is basically a bowl filled with meats, cheese, potatoes, and gravy topped with an egg sunny-side-up!

Sis ordered the Smoked Salmon Benny, which is essentially the traditional Eggs Benedict with smoked salmon and cream cheese sandwiched in between the toast and the eggs. It looked delicious!

I loved what I ordered, which was the Southwest Sunrise Omelette. This included three different types of cheese and sautéed peppers topped with salsa, avocado slices, and sour cream. I would definitely order this again.

This restaurant has great food and a great atmosphere, but the pricing is steep. I had coffee & my omelette and paid over $20 (including tip). Not the biggest fan of the cost, though. I would, however, highly recommend it for a fun and new brunching experience here in SA.
