Green Eggs Cafe

A few weeks ago, I went into Philadelphia to eat at the Green Eggs Cafe. I heard rumors Green Eggs have the best pancakes around.  Of course I had to test it out. Green Eggs Cafe is very well known for their large square stack of red velvet pancakes.

I arrived to the Green Eggs Cafe around 11. It wasn’t crowded and I was seated immediately.

Atmosphere: B
It’s open and modern. There are plenty of seating and open tables. The entry way was a little strange and I felt like I was awkwardly standing in front of tables to wait.  The inside is spacious and I never felt like I was sitting on top of anyone.  The entry is just extremely awkward.

Coffee: A
The coffee was excellent. The waitress went into a lot of detail to tell me they used home made vegan whipped cream. I thought that was really interesting and unique. I would have never guessed it was vegan but honestly it didn’t matter to me either way.  (I forgot to take a photo of my coffee!)

Food: A
The Green Eggs cafe has plenty of options from breakfast to lunch. They had quite a few different egg selections, French toast and pancakes. They are best known for their French toast and red velvet pancakes. I came specifically for the pancakes so I already knew what I wanted before looking at the menu.

Red velvet cake is my favorite type of dessert so I was  set in getting the red velvet pancakes. They were deliscious and one of the best stacks of pancakes I have ever had. They were dense and very filling.  The red velvet pancakes had chocolate chips baked in.

The actual pancakes were square with the edges a little bit crispy. I liked the crispy edges a lot. It was topped with chantilly cream which it also had in the center. Honestly it was one of the best breakfasts I have ever had.

Cost: $$
For my pancakes and coffee it was $20 dollars. Honestly it was one of the best breakfasts I’ve had and completely worth it.

Overall thoughts/Would I come back?
I would come back everyday if I could. The service and staff was extremely friendly and the food was deliscious. I want to try the cookie dough French toast next.

  1. Oh man do those pancakes look good! How neat that they have chocolate chips baked into them, too! Also, cookie dough french toast sounds amazing!

  2. Homemade vegan whipped cream? Sign me up!

    I’m not much good at making pancakes, and it’s impossible to find vegan ones eating out in my region, so I don’t have them very often at all. I do love anything and everything red velvet though 🙂

  3. Don’t like red velvet but love me some pancakes! COOKIE DOUGH PANCAKES. Ready, go! This is where we are going. When? WHEN!?

  4. I would go just for the red velvet pancakes. I’ve had that flavor before and they’re my favorite. I’ve had cookie dough pancakes before too and they’re really good but too much dessert for me to have at breakfast so I feel like I usually end up ordering a super sweet breakfast like cookie dough pancakes and then order something else on the side.
