Green Eggs Cafe
Posted by anonymous on 09/29/2012
There are lines out the door every weekend. Why? I don't tend to patronage places that have lots of "rules" and act like it's MY honor to be eating there. The food is decent and a bit more creative than the typical breakfast place, but overpriced. Given the prices, you'd think they'd take credit cards, but no. I recall at their other location seeing signs saying to not sit and read the paper on weekends (they need to turn the tables) and they charge for containers if you want to take food home. REALLY? How cheap can you be. When I visited this location, my friend went to park the car and I asked to be seated. No. No. No. Full parties must be present (gotta turn those tables!) except only half the restaurant was full...but rules is rules. Well, my rule is never again. Won't be back to any of their locations.

I have visited many breakfast/lunch places in Center City and this in- cludes the other two locations of this restaurant. While the food is good and the coffee great it is a disgrace to charge for maple syrup. Pancakes and syrup go together and this should not be an added expense.

Having lived in the neighborhood for four years I enjoy supporting the local venues and was excited when I heard that Green Eggs Cafe opened a new spot nearby. I waited a couple of weeks before stopping by to have lunch. Unfortunately, it was a huge disappointment as the service was slow and inattentive, the food varied from inedible to barely edible and the sandwiches were overpriced. My chicken cutlet sandwich had a hard (not crispy) crust and the meat was stringy. My friend's burrito also suffered from the stringy chicken but was edible if really hungry. Even the fries were left at the table as they tasted like they were overcooked and re-warmed. We had lunch at 1:30 and the crowd was light so its not like the kitchen or server were busy. I told the waitress of our dissatisfaction and she said she informed the manager. You would think the manager would come over to discuss the situation as it hadn't been open long and feedback (good or bad) is always important. As I mentioned, it wasn't busy but the manager never came over to our table. I see no reason to return given other solid breakfast and lunch options nearby.
