The original Egg Shop is in Nolita, but this location is in Williamsburg - and it’s an infinitely better place to eat your eggs. (We like the Nolita one, but it gets a little cramped.) So if you’re craving a sandwich or a bowl of vegetables with an egg on it, and you have time to spare, we recommend you cross the East River. This place is bright with high ceilings, and there’s a little bar area up front. They also do burritos at this location, and these make for a good, quick breakfast or lunch.
