Frequently Asked Questions



We're sorry, but we do not take reservations or call aheads, generally. And, unfortunately, we really can't tell you how long the brunch wait will be by the time you get here, so knowing the current wait time isn't much help. Just remember you can entertain yourself during your wait with coffee, cocktails, camaraderie . . . and the photobooth, if she's not being temperamental. We do want to talk to you about private events or group reservations during off-peak times, though (no, not brunch; on Saturdays and Sundays that means after 4pm!), so please DO reach out to us at info@westeggcafe.com to discuss your options. We love hosting special events!


IS WEST EGG AVAILABLE FOR PRIVATE EVENTS? Yes! West Egg is available for your special event in the evenings We've hosted rehearsal dinners, weddings, corporate parties, and holiday gatherings; Chef Andrew Smith and Pastry Chef Carrie Hudson look forward to crafting a menu for your event.

DO YOU SERVE ALCOHOL? Yes, we have a full bar. Pursuant to law, we serve only after 9am Monday-Saturday and 11am Sundays (yes, the Brunch Bill passed, so we can serve at 11am on Sundays now!).

WHERE DO I PARK? We have a FREE parking deck connected to our building. Access the parking decking from the entrance at 14th Street and Howell Mill Rd and look for the West Egg sign in the pedestrian breezeway that leads to our front door.

Ben, a native Atlantan, and Jennifer, originally from the Washington D.C. area, met in Ann Arbor, Michigan while attending law school. After practicing law for a number of years, we opened West Egg in March 2004 hoping to create a comfortable environment that might help anchor a growing community. We drew from our own experiences in coffee shops and small restaurants in college towns and from living and traveling around the world – those places that have an innate warmth that draws people in and seem to become an integral part of people’s daily lives. We settled on an industrial part of town in a rough warehouse complex that was central to many but that had been visited by few. Friends and family generously donated their time to paint walls, build shelves, organize an office, work the counter, and even wash dishes. Neighbors started coming and things just grew from there. Following redevelopment of the entire site, in January 2010, West Egg moved about 50 yards south into the new White Provision Residences building. With all the growth in the neighborhood since we first opened, as part of the move we felt it was time to expand into evening hours and add dinner and bar service. We always envisioned West Egg as one of those places that is available to its community from a coffee in the morning through a glass of wine in the evening. While West Egg has evolved a lot over the years in how it operates, the underlying idea of comfort and community has remained constant. We recognize that customers do as much as the owners and staff to create any restaurant environment, so are immensely grateful to all those who have supported us through these years and whose patronage has helped us build and shape West Egg.
