After running the Sugar Daddy Race 5k, we decided to head to Egg Plantation in Santa Clarita. I heard it was a good spot, and the name interested me. When we arrived on a Saturday around 9 am, there was about a 15-minute wait. When was the last time I waited for a restaurant? I honestly have no idea. Is Egg Plantation a diner? Maybe…maybe not, but in California, diners and breakfast spots blend together, and some breakfast spots are more of a diner than diners. Coming to the West Coast has transitioned me to accepting more restaurants as diners.
Egg Plantation Atmosphere: A
Egg Plantation is a cute restaurant located in a busy section of Santa Clarita. The immediate area is walkable, and you can walk down to several cute shops. There is more than anticipated parking with a bigger lot across the street. There is both indoor and outdoor seating. A patio covers the outdoor seating. There are no booths but plenty of tables. From the outside, it doesn’t look big, but it can undoubtedly seat many people.
It’s been a while since I ordered my favorite coffee: coffee with whipped cream. The coffee was brewed fresh and hot and tasted great. What more do you need?
Egg Plantation Food: A
Just hearing the name, you might think Egg Plantation only serves eggs, but they do a lot of other food as well. They have a full breakfast, including pancakes and french toast, plus plenty of lunch options, including salads and sandwiches. They were voted “Best Breakfast in Newhall.” They also have 100 different omelet styles.
A few things on the Egg Plantation menu that interested me:
- Pesto Scram: Four eggs scrambled with pesto, chicken, spinach & tomatoes, topped with feta cheese, served with country potatoes & choice of toast
- Sirlion Steak Omelet: Sirloin Steak, Onions, Ortega Chilies, Tomatoes & Jack Cheese.
- Pizza Omelet: Italian sausage, onions, mushrooms, bell pepper, olives & mozzarella cheese topped with marinara.
- Combination seafood salad: Premium crab, grilled jumbo shrimp, albacore tuna, olives, hard-boiled egg & tomatoes on a bed of crisp lettuce with your choice of dressing.
- Grilled Vegetable Sandwich: Eggplant, squash, bell peppers, onions, goat cheese & pesto on a grilled roll.
- Coconut pancakes

Ultimately I decided to go with the cinnamon roll and Sirlion Steak Omelet. The cinnamon roll tasted good. There was a ton of frosting (which is basically the entire point of the cinnamon roll), but it wasn’t too dry or crusty—one of the better cinnamon rolls I’ve had lately.
The Sirlion Steak Omelet was equally as good. A lot of steak was tucked into it, which was challenging to consume. I liked the extra spice of the chilis and jack cheese.
Despite the Egg Plantation being busy, our food came out fast. Our waitress was friendly, and in all, we had a great experience.
For the cinnamon roll, omelet and coffee, it was $25. Definitely not one of the most expensive diners I’ve been to as California prices go.
Overall Thoughts/Would I Come Back to Egg Plantation?
I enjoyed my breakfast at Egg Plantation and would definitely come back. I want to try several options, and it looks like the Egg Plantation lunch menu is just as good.
