I read somewhere that The Corner Pantry , just north of the Mt. Washington neighborhood had the best eggs. I am a person who loves eggs and can’t eat breakfast without them so naturally I had to check it out for myself.
Literally tucked on the corner of a quant shopping center on Falls Road is a cute brown brick restaurant with a stripped awning. I found a parking spot directly in front of the café and immediately noticed the rustic green tables used for outdoor seating and the sidewalk chalkboard used to display the daily specials. Inside the café there are about six tables and two long window ledge tables with hightop chairs and the kitchen area has an open window concept.
Freshly made pastries sit behind a glass enclosed window and the self-serve cold counter includes yogurt, fruit and nuts. The friendly cashier advised me to take my time looking over the menu after I told her I was a newbie to The Corner Pantry. I did mention to her that I wanted to try the eggs and she suggested the bacon, egg and cheddar sandwich with house-made bacon and biscuit.
The food arrived fast and as you can see picture perfect. The bacon was thick and with a little spice and the eggs were fluffy and cheesy. I was a little hesitant about eating only the sandwich and contemplated ordering something else on the side because I didn’t think it would be enough but I was wrong. The sandwich was big and stuffed with egg and bacon, I was so full that I couldn’t finish the entire biscuit. I also ordered a cappuccino and it was tasty, but I wish it was hotter, I understand they don’t want to serve it extremely hot for fear it might burn someone, but my drink was almost room temperature. I would definitely check out The Corner Pantry again just for this delicious egg sandwich. Have you been to The Corner Pantry? What is your favorite dish to order?
