“Cracked Eggery Cleveland Park: 3420 Connecticut Ave NW DC (target opening May 2021).
The Cracked Eggery journey began in 2019 under a tent at the Cleveland Park Farmers Market. Diners quickly gravitated towards The Mayor (Cracked Bacon, scrambled egg, American & Cheddar cheese, Cracked Sauce). We then launched Abe Froman (Logan’s Sausage, scrambled egg, American & Cheddar cheese, Cracked sauce) and the Southern Charm (Fried green tomato, fried egg, Cracked Bacon, Pimento cheese, arugula, lemon aioli).. The team continued to evolve operations and offerings from their start on a single propane griddle to a food truck warmly embraced by the neighborhood and now, a forthcoming “forever home” in Cleveland Park. The new location will open in May 2021 with early operating hours (6am) and a heavy focus on order ahead/take out and delivery options.
