Over Easy, the popular breakfast and brunch spot is closing after 12 years on September 2nd.

According to a Facebook post from the owners, the restaurant is closing because they decided not to renew their lease. 

Over Easy Message

Below is their farewell message:

“It is with deep sadness, we announce that Friday, September 2nd will be Over Easy’s last day of business. We have decided to not renew our lease. For nearly 12 years, Over Easy has provided for our family, created countless memories, taught us invaluable life lessons and allowed us to serve our incredible community. Although it is difficult to say goodbye, we are hopeful for the future and look forward to what God has in store for our family. We are truly grateful for our loyal customers who have sustained us for so many years, and for the amazing people who have helped support and encourage us through this adventure. For our staff, thank you from the bottom of our hearts. You are the reason the doors open early, the coffee stays hot, the food is delicious and the space is hospitable. We couldn’t have done it without you.

We hope you will come join us one more time before Friday and allow us to thank you all in person for making our time at OE so very special.

Remember—True happiness is a bowl of purple grits.”

Much love, Steven and Ashley

Remember When?

When Bham Now got the news Over Easy was closing, we remembered a story we wrote about the place back in 2019. Along with several other Magic City establishments, the breakfast and brunch joint was featured on a Cooking Channel program called Cheap Eats, hosted by food connoisseur Ali Khan.

Check out the story here.

Summer of Closings

There have been a number of eateries closing in and around Birmingham this summer. In August alone Superior Grill on 280, Dreamcakes in Homewood and Taproot Cafe in Hoover and Ash Neighborhood Bar and Grill in West Homewood closed.

Let’s hope this is not a trend.
