Shabby-chic décor, hip music and a diverse menu are some of the things customers can find at Eggspectation.

The eatery, which started in Montreal in 1993, has opened its first Texas location at 402 N. Loop 1604 West.

While Eggspectation — as the name implies — offers a traditional breakfast, diners also can explore lunch and dinner options.

“(People) get confused with the ‘Eggspectation’ part of it and think it’s just a breakfast place, but we do more than breakfast,” said Adam Ybarra, general manager.

In addition to eggs, the menu includes entrees ranging from Salmon Smoked Benny to lobster macaroni and cheese.

While the restaurant does offer traditional American dishes, there are some Canadian-, Greek- and Italian-inspired meals as well.

“It’s a very diverse menu and it’s just very unique. You can get a lot of good menu options,” Ybarra said. “If you wanted to do a steak in the morning, then you can do a steak in the morning. Anyone can come in here and find something they like. We’re hoping it attracts everyone in San Antonio.”

    With a setting where customers can enjoy sunlight streaming through large floor-to-ceiling windows, “It’s not your typical breakfast environment,” Ybarra said. “It’s sexy. It’s very modern because you can come in and the music is a little louder than normal. It has a different vibe. ”

Hours are 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.
