Dinosaur eggs are really just pancakes, but kids love ordering them off the menu at J. Christopher's, a cheery breakfast/brunch/lunch spot with locations scattered around the metro area. While each location has its own personality, all feature contemporary colors, cushy booths, interesting art on the walls, and a smoke-free environment. This is a kid-friendly spot for Sunday brunch or a weekday lunch with the little ones - coloring pages and crayons are supplied by the hostess, and no one blinks when scrambled eggs are flung on the floor. But although the atmosphere is casual, the food is outstanding. Seasonal brunch specials are the star of the show, with items like pumpkin pancakes in the fall, and creme brulee french toast in winter. The menu also features tasty and healthy salads, soups, and sandwiches for "late risers." Low carb options are available for dieters, egg whites can sub for regular eggs, and fresh fruit comes with almost any item.
