The Golden Egg Omelet House is known for delivering old-time favorites with a new twist. The restaurant, opened since…More the 1970s, serves up home-style breakfast items, making it an ideal stopping point for out-of-towners looking for a taste of home. Old-fashioned hash browns aside, it also serves up freshly squeezed orange juice, locally roasted organic coffee and a full bar serving cold draft beer. Sundays and holidays tend to be busy, so expect a short wait in the late morning.
The restaurant was severely burned during a fire at an adjacent business in 2003, and the remodel took several years to complete. The restaurant changed ownership in 2008 and was opened at night as the Grant Avenue Bar & Grill while continuing as the Golden Egg during mornings and lunch hours. In early 2010 it became Old Town Bistro, but in October 2010 the ownership decided to switch back to the original name.
