Bakin’ & Eggs

by Ashley on September 21st, 2010

I visited Bakin’ & Eggs yesterday to use a Groupon I had purchased earlier. Plus, I’m always on the lookout for a good breakfast/brunch spot.

The atmosphere of this restaurant is very nice: clean, bright, and open. It seems to be a great place to sit and read or study during the day. I arrived around 1 p.m. on a Monday, so the place was pretty desolate. It took over ten minutes for a server to come over and take my order once I was seated, but other than that, the wait staff was really friendly and punctual.

I ordered the Cinnamon Raisin Sandwich, which had egg, cheddar cheese, and turkey sausage between two thick slices of cinnamon raisin bread. The order came out in less than 10 minutes. The bread of this sandwich was the best part: everything else was bland and tasteless, even after I covered it with maple syrup and added salt (yes, a weird combo, I know). I was starving, though, so I ate the entire thing, which could have easily been split between two people. I also had a side of cheese grits, which were running, but had plenty of cheese-flavor. Nonetheless, as a Southerner, running grits are just unacceptable.

I was stuffed, but I had to order some pastries to meet my Groupon requirement (darn… I HAD to order some sweets. ;-) ). I got a Banana Walnut Muffin, a Chocolate Croissant, and a Chocolate Ginger Chew. All the items were good, but the Chocolate Ginger Chew was by far the best of the three. I wish I had ordered a dozen of them! Honestly, If those little cookies are always that good, I’ll make the trek out to Bakin’ & Eggs just for those things.

Overall, the three things I was most impressed with were (1) the bright atmosphere, (2) the friendly staff, and (3) the Chocolate Ginger Chews. Perhaps some of their other dishes are more flavorful, I which case, I wouldn’t mind going back and giving Bakin’ & Eggs another try.
