Scrambling for Iggy’s Eggies

December 18, 2018

 

Restaurateur Eli Boyer noticed while there were many local coffee shops in Detroit’s business district, there weren’t a lot of places to get a quick grab-and-go breakfast. Enter Iggy’s Eggies at 34 W. Grand River Avenue, Detroit, which opened in December and runs Mondays through Fridays. Connected to Lover’s Only, the walk-up window breakfast spot mainly serves breakfast sandwiches, ranging from a straightforward egg, bacon, and cheese to more glutinous options, along with grain bowls and Roos Roast coffee. This will mark the third restaurant for Boyer with chefs Jennifer Jackson and Justin Tootla – the trio also run Lover’s Only and Voyager in Ferndale – who plan on working with as many local vendors and farmers as possible. As for the name, you can thank Boyer’s three-year-old daughter. “I was throwing random names out at her – she calls eggs ‘eggies’ – and one of them happened to be Iggy’s,” he said. “Then she yelled ‘eggies’ right after.” That works.
