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.
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.
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!)
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.
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.
Overall: A (top 5 overall)
