For the last one and half years, my staple breakfast food has been a good old egg and cheese sandwich. I’ve probably had it every single day.
My friend was visiting NYC for the last couple of days and recommended that we go to Egg Shop. At first, when I looked at the menu, I was very confused. There were strange mix of foods and stuff that I had never heard of before. I almost asked her to change or reservation. However, I am so glad she didn’t budge.
Egg Shop is a tiny hole-in-the-wall restaurant on Elizabeth Street. Just a five minute walk from the Spring St. subway stop (6 train). They serve their coffee in transperant mugs, the coffee was great btw! I ordered a custom egg and cheese sandwich with Vermont white Cheddar and caramelized onion aioli, on a paninni roll.
To say that I was impressed and satisfied is an understatement. The bread was soft and warm and egg whites fluffy. There was just the perfect amount of cheese and onion aioli, giving the whole sandwich an extra something.
Definitely recommended for a quick, wonderful, and filling breakfast!
