Breakfast reimagined is the motto for the upcoming EggHaus Gourmet, as they set to innovate the breakfast food scene. With the idea that quality breakfast can be served in a convenient and quick way, the eatery is set to open on Friday, September 21 at 2042 E. T.C. Jester.
Brought to the community by the co-founder of its neighboring restaurant, King’s BierHaus, EggHaus Gourmet is Philipp Sitter’s newest concept.
“The response has been overwhelming. We’re very excited to show the community what we have been working on for quite some time,” said Sitter.
EggHaus Gourmet took years in the making. For the last two and a half years they have been hosting made-from-scratch kolache pop-ups at King’s Biergarten in Pearland and at King’s BierHaus in the Heights. When the kolaches would sellout quick on weekends and 6 a.m. around the building lines became regular, both Hans and Philipp Sitter decided it was time to expand their concept.
For EggHaus efficiency with quality food and service is important. The sitter’s wanted to create a breakfast spot perfect for the fast-paced morning crowd needing to get to the office, as well as for the customers having a slow morning. So, they created accessible breakfast that is easy to grab and go, but still high quality and delicious to eat.
Luckily for King’s kolache lovers all of their most popular kolaches are on the EggHaus menu. The kolaches included are, Reuben with corned beef, sauerkraut, swiss, and homemade thousand island; Drunken Chicken with shredded chicken simmered in Stiegl lager bier, sautéed with peppers and onions and buffalo sauce; Three Cheese & Smoked Polish with fresh jalapeno; Sweet Cream Cheese with melted strawberries; Oma’s Peach with sweet peaches, apricot and topped with orange zest; Organic Peanut Butter with homemade strawberry jam and a variety of vegetarian kolaches.
Also available on the menu will be reinvented egg sandwiches and elevated tacos served with cage-free eggs.
A Hangover Sandwich with shredded chicken simmered in Stiegl lager bier and lettuce, tomato, cage-free egg, queso fresco, cilantro and avocado ranch on a warm butter flake bun will be featured on the menu. Another sandwich is The Scramble loaded with cage-free soft-scrambled eggs, smoked bacon, avocado, green onions, cheddar and homemade chipotle aioli on a warm butter flake bun.
You can also grab a simple bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich or a sausage, egg, and cheese sandwich.
On the taco side the menu includes, La Brea with cage-free eggs, potato, bell peppers, grilled onions, cilantro, and queso fresco, Cerveza with cage-free eggs, ground chuck simmered in German Pilsner, grilled onions, bell peppers, and house aioli, and more. And if you’re cutting back on tortillas they offer to substitute them with a lettuce cup.
Also available are freshly made in-house pastries, avocado toast, fruit cup, breakfast potatoes, coffee and matcha.
By teaming with popular Austin-based designer Kim Lewis, Sitter was able to transform the 2,000-square-foot restaurant into an approachable, inspiring setting that complements gourmet breakfast. The entry wall is covered by floral wallpaper and bright yellow sconces that lighten the room and make it feel open and inviting. Pops of yellow, white and black accent the space and set against dozens of plants it makes for a casual, refreshing place to start the day.
Once EggHaus Gourmet opens on September 21, operating hours will be 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday; and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. Or beat the crowd and order online at EggHaus.com
