Iggy's Eggies cracks open its first egg in Capitol Park


  • Devin Culham

Iggy's Eggies is officially open for business in Detroit's Capitol Park.

The breakfast walk-up window made its debut on Thursday morning with a selection of build-your-own breakfast sandwiches. The sandwiches are made with a selection of English muffin, brioche, or housemade biscuit, and can be upgraded to include American, cheddar, or Swiss cheese. Customers also have the option to add meat and may choose from bacon, sausage, ham, turkey, or vegan sausage.

The cost of the breakfast sandwiches range from $3.50 to $6. Sides of hash browns and yogurt with granola are also available. Iggy's Eggies will also feature a monthly bodega special which will feature a new sandwich monthly.

The new grab-and-go breakfast spot is a sister restaurant to Lovers Only located next door, developed by restauranteur Eli Boyle and chefs Jennifer Jackson and Justin Tootla.

Iggy's Eggies is located at 34 W. Grand River Ave. The spot will be open for the downtown breakfast rush, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m to 11 a.m.
