Despite moving twice in its thirty-year lifetime, the Egg Shell has maintained an honest, homey feel. What started out in a little nook in Cherry Creek moved to bigger digs in the same neighborhood in 2009, which then closed six years later due to redevelopment of the block. But in spring of 2016, the Egg Shell found a new home downtown, in the former home of Cafe Options, where you'll find a mix of modern and old-fashioned on one menu. Sure, there's a trendy — and tasty — avocado toast, but the Egg Shell sticks with tried and true, too, in the form of Denver omelets and breakfast burritos. Not to be missed is a sweet morning treat of banana-bread French toast.
