There's an exciting new restaurant serving breakfast, lunch, and brunch in Fort Worth's Alliance Town Center: Called Eggtastic Brunch Cafe, it's located at 9160 North Fwy. #452, in the same shopping center as Sam Moon, where it opened in mid-April and is already drawing raves from locals for its hearty and well-made dishes, doting service, and cheerful bright atmosphere.
The menu includes omelets, pancakes in a wide assortment of varieties, benedicts, skillets, crepes, and specials such as steak & eggs featuring a substantial 8-ounce ribeye with a side of golden Waffle-House-style hash browns.
They take basics like French toast and give them a little something extra, via treatments such as banana & Nutella French toast with slices of fresh banana. There's also a cinnamon roll option, dipped in batter and fried, then topped with cream cheese icing.
There's biscuits & gravy, migas, a breakfast sandwich with bacon, egg, & American cheese on choice of bagel or croissant, and a breakfast burrito with scrambled eggs, tomato, onion, jalapeño, Monterey Jack & cheddar, and hash browns in a flour tortilla.
They do a "sweet combo" option with eggs, choice of bacon, ham, or sausage, and choice of two pancakes, French toast, crepes, or waffles. They also cover the "healthy" category with avocado toast, and a granola bowl with berries and yogurt.
Lunch options include salads such as Cobb and chicken Caesar, chicken-fried chicken and chicken-fried steak, burgers - including one topped with fried egg & American cheese, as well as a Beyond burger option - sandwiches, and wraps.
On trend with breakfast and brunch restaurants, they also offer cocktails ranging from mimosas and bloody Marys to an avocado margarita with pineapple & spicy tajin; an Irish coffee with Bailey's and Jameson; and the luscious-sounding Abuletias Con Cafe, with Don Julio Blanco, Abuelita chocolate, coffee, and whipped cream, a bargain at $9.
The restaurant is the newest venture from the Kim family, who own a number of restaurants in the area including Hanabi Hibachi and Sushi, right across from Eggtastic.
Co-owner Ted Kim says they love doing breakfast and brunch, but that they've expanded into a new arena at Eggtastic.
"This is our first restaurant that incorporates a commercial coffee roaster outlet," Kim says.
They're using the beans for their in-house coffee program, which runs the gamut from espresso drinks to straight brewed coffee, and they're also selling roasted beans, roasted from light to medium to dark.
"We're sourcing green beans from coffee growers around the world - that's been a highlight for us," Kim says.
