Uptown Grayton Has Something for Everyone

July 21, 2014 by Audrey Johnson

Uptown Grayton is a busy place, from the first light of day until near midnight. It would be a fun challenge to begin your day with a fabulous breakfast at Another Broke Egg Cafe, shop all day fueled by coffee breaks at Bad Ass Coffee, and handle some business while you're at it. 

Whether shopping for apparel, grabbing a bite to eat, designing a home, or getting your taxes done, Uptown Grayton has you covered. Stop by and make friends with shopkeepers, chefs, and other friendly faces in one of our favorite local spots that’s more like a village than a shopping center. Here’s where to eat, shop, work, and play at Uptown Grayton.
 

 

 

Eat

Another Broken Egg Cafe | Light streams in through large windows at Another Broken Egg, making the dining room warm and inviting like grandma’s kitchen. And the food is just as good. You’ll love the Hey Lucy Omelet stuffed with Avocado, Chorizo, Sautéed Onions, and savory Green Chilies, sprinkled with Cheddar-Jack cheese, and topped with Sour Cream and Salsa. The coffee alone is worth the wait to be seated at this popular eatery. (It’s served in a cuter than cute souvenir mug adorned with a rooster.) Facebook

Bad Ass Coffee | Transport yourself to Hawaii with a hot cup of pure Kona, or grab a bag of beans to get your caffeine fix at home. This Tiki inspired coffee shop serves coffee, tea, muffins, and more, perfect for breakfast on the go. Facebook
