October of 2007 Doug Stumpf and Mike Touhey set out to change people’s perception of breakfast food forever. Firm believers that breakfast is indeed the most important meal of the day they made it a mission to convince the world of that. Born and raised in Virginia Beach and now residing in Chesapeake, Mike and Doug are lifelong fans of the Dave Matthews Band. They have spent over 25 years following the band around the country and what stood out most was the lack of quality breakfast restaurants throughout the country. Most places they visited served greasy, boring and basic food with few options and often bad service. After a year of searching they opened the first location in the Greenbrier section of Chesapeake. With a focus on quality ingredients from start to finish and locally sourced products The Egg Bistro was hatched. The Egg is constantly working on fresh & locally sourced food and drink ideas for our menus as well as seasonal offers. All three locations feature 12 rotating & often local craft beers on tap. Doug has been in the restaurant business since 1986 and Mike started at the early age of 13. Along with the addition of three partners, they have over 100 years of combined experience. Now with three convenient locations including our newest in the Strawbridge section of Virginia Beach, Virginia. We look forward for the opportunity to make you a lifelong guest and remember to Eat, drink and be merry!
We specialize in a variety of menu items from breakfast favorites that include omelets, Benedict’s, homemade cinnamon swirl French toast and lunch classics like salads, sandwiches and amazing burgers.
