It appears that EggHaus Gourmet, the brunch-focused eatery from the father-and-son duo behind King’s Biergarten and King’s BierHaus, has narrowed down its opening to late August or early September.

Hans and Philipp Sitter announced this past spring that they would be bringing dishes popular to their Sunday pop-up brunches to a dedicated eatery. Now, Eater has learned that EggHaus Gourmet will debut at 2042 East TC Jester next to King’s BierHaus in the Heights. The 2,000 square foot spot is currently under construction and once complete will feature interior designs by Austin-based Kim Lewis, known for her work on ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. Lewis’ sunny design will incorporate floral wallpaper and bright yellow elements to offset the black-and-white color scheme. Diners will find casual, Parisian cafe-inspired interiors with woven rattan bistro chairs.

As far as food is concerned, the Sitters are capitalizing on their wildly popular kolache pop-ups that diners would reportedly start lining up for at 6 a.m. EggHaus will obviously offer the Sitters’ hit kolaches, including the reuben with corned beef, sauerkraut, swiss cheese, and homemade thousand island dressing; and the “Drunken Chicken” with shredded chicken simmered in Stiegl lager bier, sautéed with peppers and onions and doused in buffalo sauce; plus sweet kolaches featuring peaches, apricots, and a pb&j variety. Egg sandwiches, scrambles, and tacos will also be on offer made from ingredients like GMO-free tortillas, preservative and additive-free buns and sausages, and cage-free eggs.

“I was tired of compromising on the quality of ingredients for breakfast, and that’s how EggHaus began to develop,” Philipp said in a statement. “For the past few years our team has had an obsession to perfect our kolache pop-ups and [has traveled] around the country to discover what we believe to be the next generation of breakfast.”

EggHaus will be open seven days a week for breakfast and lunch from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Stay tuned for an official opening date.
