Eggy’s Diner in the new Chicago neighborhood of Lakeshore East has great food and a very open, community feeling. Almost as if you are stepping into someone’s family gathering.
The restaurant is named after Magellan Development President/Partner David Carlins’, childhood friend Robert Mallin, who was nicknamed ‘EGGY’ (after his self-described egg-shaped head) back in the late 1960’s.

Me and my husband Bernard (left), met our friends Lydia and Aaron for brunch a couple of weeks ago. It’s always a joy spending time with them.
Eggy’s is located in the fairly new and exclusive Lakeshore East neighborhood. The area now boasts it’s own kindergarten and will soon have a new elementary school. Magellan Development Group is not just the owner of Eggy’s but they are responsible for most of the development in Lakeshore East.
With 28-acres, Lakeshore East is comprised of Chicago apartments, condos, luxury townhomes, shops and a 6-acre park as the neighborhood’s centerpiece. The Village Market center includes a Mariano’s Fresh Market, III Forks Steakhouse, Eggy’s, Maison Brasserie and much more. The overall master-plan, designed by Skidmore Owings and Merrill, has won the prestigious American Institute of Architects Planned Community Award and the FIABCI Prix d’Excellence International Award.
Lydia was enjoying the sun and flowers.
Aaron decided to take a picture of me taking a picture of him.
After our wonderful meal at Eggy’s, we decided to take a tour of the beautiful neighborhood.
If you get a chance, I highly recommend visiting Lakeshore East for a great meal at Eggy’s, a stroll in the park and a small architecture tour.
