Brunchin’ It at Over Easy

Breakfast at one of our favorite Colorado local eateries - Over Easy! Bruce and I love to eat out (you caught us 😉 ) We especially love to eat at local eateries. One of our favorite breakfast places is Over Easy and we find ourselves here for breakfast dates often. The food is all kinds of scrumptious while also being fresh, chemical- free, organic, and local – Colorado Proud. Bruce and I snuck away for an early morning date before our workday started. We don’t normally get these morning times together because we both tend to be rushing to get ready for the day. Our evenings so quickly fill up with commitments and plans that we can easily go through the week without getting time together – making this morning a sweet getaway.

Every time we go to Over Easy I order something different which is honestly nothing like me. I tend to order the same thing every time for safety reasons and other reasons like me being a creature of habit. But here I fall in love with every item on the menu so I have to work my way through the list one at a time 😉 They also have a special each day which tends to be the item of choice for Bruce – especially when it involves salmon like the salmon omelet he ordered! I finally ordered the Tuscan Benedict and it did not disappoint! We also had some dessert (like we really needed it. haha) and shared a Cinnamon Swirl Pancake which may be one of their most popular items on the menu for good reason.

Side note: If you find yourself for breakfast here order The Cure (a fresh juice mix of Pineapple, Vanilla, Orange Juice, & Coconut Water) or get your hands on one of the mimosas. They are all seriously yummy but my favorite is the Hound Dog ( it has Grapefruit in it!) If you are Colorado local you should also be aware of the Special Offer they have going on right now – For every $100 dollars bought in gift cards, you receive a $20 gift card FREE! #winning

  • This food looks amazing!! I love trying new restaurants. It’s been great moving to Charleston which is such a foodie town. There is so much to try! 🙂

    • Oak & Oats

      It is so SO amazing! and I love that! foodie areas are the best !

  • Jae

    Aww how nice that you, two, had an early morning date before going to work! I bet your spirits were high (and less stressful) all day! 😉

    • Oak & Oats

      It was so wonderful to be able to share that together!

  • Oh man! It looks so good! We love breakfast food! Burbank had some of the best breakfast places.

    • Oak & Oats

      YAY! Now you will just have to find some new ones in the New York area!!

  • Looks delicious. I love me a good brunch. Here in Ireland, no one really does brunch (except up in Dublin maybe, where all the cool people live). But the boyf and I love to go get a big Irish breakfast together at the weekend sometime. It’s not healthy – filled with bottomless coffees and sausages and puddings – but it’s delicious. I’m just missing mimosas at this point! x

    • Oak & Oats

      That is so fun! I love doing all the things local wherever I am! I love your current breakfast culture!

  • Erica

    Are they still running the gift card offer? I can’t find where it says anything about it from the link.

    • Oak & Oats

      Hello Erica! I am not sure if it is still running. I know it was good through the holidays (kind of like a holiday deal) – you may want to call to check. They may still honor the deal if you chat with them but I can’t make any promises! Have a wonderful day!
