David Rostro, manager of Mama’s Egg House, spoke to the Town Crier Friday morning about the restaurant which opened Aug. 28. The restaurant is located at 54241 Ridgeview Drive, the former home of Plant Food Supper Club.
“We opened on a Friday, but we didn’t expect to get much business because we didn’t promote anything, Rostro said. “By Saturday, it was packed. We’ve got a lot of good feedback.”
Mama’s Egg House, while also open for lunch, is primarily a breakfast restaurant, offering many different breakfast options, including chilaquiles and other Mexican breakfast favorites.
While there are a few vegan options already, they hope to offer even more options in the near future. Fresh juices and smoothies are also on the menu.
Mama’s Egg House is working on getting its beer and wine license. Once that is finalized, they hope to offer mimosa flights and a variety of beer, wine and Champagne options.
While only open for a week at the time this article was written, favorite dishes are already being noticed.
“One of our best sellers is our Trio Breakfast which includes three eggs, three sausage links or bacon, toast and choice of side,” Rostro said. “It’s been pretty popular so far.”
With these tough times, Mama’s Egg House is short-staffed and looking for employees. If they are able to build their staff, they might open for dinner.
“We could use waiters, hosts, kitchen assistance, food runners and cooks,” Rostro said. “Any help we can get, we’d appreciate it.”
Mama’s Egg House is a family-operated business and prides itself on delivering quality food. The family is well-established in town, owning Fratello’s Ristorante & Pizzeria, Mama Mia Crepes and Desserts, The Lumber Mill Bar & Grill, and Manzanita Cantina and Grill.
“Our food is made with passion and love,” Rostro said. “We are here to serve the community and visitors. We welcome feedback and ideas from our customers. We are always looking to make sure everyone is taken care of.”
Mama’s Egg House hours are 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday, Tuesday and Thursday and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday through Sunday. Hours may vary, so be sure to check before you go.
