It’s always good when you can see a locally owned business make its way into a small town and right off the bat, start to thrive. That’s exactly what’s happening right now at the new Cozy Egg Café in the heart of Mattawan.

In the past, the small brick building has seen various changes from turning from Nonla Vietnamese to Nonla Burger and many other restaurants in the past. But the new Cozy Egg Café has a certain charm to it that I feel will keep it around for a long time. It’s not just the charm, but the ingredients and love that’s put into the food that is already making a hit with locals in the area.

They serve breakfast all day and also feature a lunch menu, including sandwiches and burgers along with salads as well. Some of the main standouts of the menu are their pancakes, their homemade biscuits, and biscuits and gravy.
One thing that sets it apart from, other restaurants is the gravy is homemade, and actually has a certain sweetness to it, as the owner told me when visiting:

I went to the store and got the canned sausage gravy and it was just too… Blah. There was just no flavor so I just made my own, with a little bit of sugar in the mix.
The sugar adds a unique twist to the meal, and you can tell just how rich their homemade ingredients are. if you were ever in the area, I always remember shopping locally helps family-owned businesses and strengthens our community.
