Eggs From The Perch

300 Mach Chunk Street - Lehighton, PA
This restaurant is on the road that I take to get to the Turnpike when I'm heading down to Philadelphia or Allentown.  I've probably driven past it a hundred times over the years and always wanted to stop in for a bite to eat, but it was never a good time.  Sometimes the place was closed, other times I had tickets to a concert or a ballgame and didn't have enough time to stop for a meal, and there were times when I just wasn't really hungry.  It was always something... and just about every time, I'd think to myself "man, I really have to stop there someday".  This past Sunday became someday.

This place has gone under a few different names over the years.  It was called The Bagel Bunch before its current name.  I'm not sure if the business changed hands or just went through a rebranding phase with the same owners, but they still have the equipment to make fresh baked bagels every day.  They've got a hell of a selection and it all looked and smelled great.  We went home with a half dozen, including Chocolate Chip, French Toast, Egg, and Blueberry.

There were at least ten things on the menu that I wanted to try.  I ended up having Hunters Hash, which is home fries topped with scrambled eggs, pastrami, bacon, andouille sausage, mushrooms, onions, peppers, and buffalo pepperjack cheese.  It was delicious, and so was the blueberry coffee that I had with it.  We're definitely going to have to make this place one of our regular spots!
