The Wild Eggs


(This adventure centered around a trip Rooster and I took to the Wild Eggs restaurant in Carmel, Indiana. The food was excellent and we had a good time.)

The Wild Eggs

It’s almost impossible to get creative with a couple of eggs and a few slices of bacon, but the folks at the Wild Egg located at 1438 W. Main Ave. in Carmel, Indiana manage to make breakfast an adventure.

From the moment this Hen House Lady walked through the door, I felt right at home. Who wouldn’t enjoy a colorful display of Easter eggs as part of the wall fixtures, or a lamp covered in white feathers hanging over your head?  That being the case this restaurant made the Henhouse Lady feel right at home because everything centered on the chicken and the egg.

If you show up on a Saturday, you should expect a twenty to thirty-minute wait. So, eating a small snack is advisable before you come. While they will get seated as quickly as possible, you should expect a significant wait, so don’t come starving.

Furthermore, the Wild Eggs staff will even offer you a cup of coffee to make you more comfortable before you are seated. There is a reason so many people choose to make the Wild Egg their favorite breakfast or brunch spot.  As well as the restaurant is clean, the food is fantastic, and the atmosphere is all about chickens.



DSCN0802I’m not one to brag, but let’s face it hens are a big draw. A hen can make your life interesting. Rooster can attest to that fact.  At least we aren’t boring.

Rooster decided to take a walk on the wild side on our visit to the Wild Eggs, consequently, he ordered the breakfast burrito. It was a toss-up for me.

By the way, it took me a few minutes to decide between Mr. Potato Head and the Kalamity Katies Border Benedict. I went with the Kalamity Katie yet I wasn’t disappointed. The taste of the chorizo sausage over the corn cake always hits the palate just right. The addition of the avocado and the pico de gallo sauce over the poached eggs tops off the meal. Rooster enjoyed the burrito but wished he’d ordered the Mr. Potato Head. It’s one of his favorite breakfasts. That’s what he gets for being experimental.

The Wild Egg is part of a restaurant chain. They have other branches located in the states of Kentucky, Indiana, Tennessee, Ohio, and Colorado. If you are near any of these areas, Google them and head in their direction. Rooster and I have only visited their Carmel location Indiana, however, I’m sure they all have the same high standards.

Rooster says he loves the place. He’s a man who likes to eat. He’s also known to be cheap. You know the food must be good if he’s willing to pay extra for breakfast. Stop by the Wild Egg near you for a memorable dining experience. Tell them the Hen House Lady sent you.


Molly Shea’s restaurant scorecard

1), Food quality = 5 (Fantastic combination of flavors.)

2). Atmosphere = 5 (It was all about the chicken and the egg, honey.)

3). Service = 5 {In short, my coffee cup didn’t go dry once.}

4). Price = 5 (Although the pricing was a little steep Rooster didn’t complain about paying the cost. In all honesty we know he is cheap when it comes to that sort of thing.)
