Of the 100-plus menu suggestions we’ve received, West Egg Cafe in Atlanta, GA has come up three or four times. With good reason it looks like. This industrial chic spot is very well designed and very detailed. The menus come in a file folder and the items are clearly and boldly stated.
Visit West Egg Cafe.
who designed this menu? Am I missing where this info is? Would love to know!
We are so flattered to be included in this impressive company -- thank you! We view your site religiously, so it made our day to be mentioned today. Our graphic designer is Angela Mitchell of www.lightdaughter.com, here in Atlanta.
Jen brought this to my attention yesterday. And funny thing is.. I have a note in my calendar to send this suite for inclusion on this very blog. Huge thanks to all those who sent it in!
We've gotten quite a bit of attention for the West Egg rebrand, of which I am so proud to have been able to work with them to produce. But to make it to an UnderConsideration blog is a pretty amazing compliment...
Ben and Jennifer at West Egg are a dream. Just like the fried green tomatoes there. (Yum!) If you're in Atlanta, you must go.
