Rock’n Egg Cafe shows up
It’s been a busy couple of weeks for Eagle Rock, what with the recent opening of Walt’s Bar and, just before that, the quiet arrival of Rock’n Egg Cafe. The former Auntie Em’s Kitchen space on Eagle Rock Boulevard is now up and running, sporting the same vibrant red exterior as ever.
Rock’n Egg is the work of the owners behind Nick’s Cafe in Chinatown. Expect, per the signage, lots of egg dishes, as well as staples like pancakes, breakfast meats, coffee, and sides. Hours run 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. daily, except for Mondays.
