West Egg has been around for over 30 years, serving standard diner food - which means anything and everything. The long, long menu includes frittatas, rotisserie chicken, nachos, skillets, and steaks, to name just a few options. There are better places to go to brunch, but West Egg is easy and filling, and sits in a bit of a diner desert, so it’s a solid option for anyone who finds themselves in Streeterville at midday.
