The Delectable Egg at 1642 Market Street is now capturing the night owl as well as the early bird. The latter have been flocking to this restaurant since 1982, going for hearty breakfasts and wholesome lunches before the Egg closed mid-afternoon.
This location still closes at 2 p.m. -- but for the past month, it's been reopening on weekend nights and serving the full menu from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m. on Friday and Saturday.
The LoDo Delectable Egg is also open from Monday through Friday from 6:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 7 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. -- which are the only hours for the three other locations in this homegrown chain: at 1625 Court Place, at 200 Quebec Street in Lowry, and at 1005 West 120th in Westminster.
But when the urge for eggs Benedict hits after the clock strikes midnight, I'll be heading for Market Street.
