After a decade thriving at 16859 Q street, Over Easy has called it a day. The breakfast, lunch, and brunch spot served elevated diner fare, a few signature dishes, and with all other resources available, the community. During quarantine, hours were extended to offer family meals and kitchen staples through the drive through. Owner Nick Bartholomew continues his ventures with Dandelion Pop-Up and the upcoming B&G Tasty Foods which will be located at 21351 Nebraska Crossing. Looking forward to what’s next from this local creative!
