Team behind Nick’s Cafe to fill Eagle Rock space left by Auntie Em’s

Rock N Egg Cafe Eagle Rock

EAGLE ROCK – One restaurant institution is making way for another, LA Eater reports. The former and now vacant home of Auntie Em’s  is being prepared for  Rock’n Egg Café – a new venture from the folks at the longtime Nick’s Cafe in Chinatown.

Auntie Em’s occupied its Eagle Rock Boulevard site for more than 15 years, garnering more than 1,300 review on Yelp. But the restaurant shut down a year ago after its owner decided to focus her energy on  her catering business.

Enter the team behind Nick’s, which has been slinging hash Downtown since 1948. Rod Davis bought the old-school diner in 2009, and also has had a side gig as a boxing manager. But Eater says Rock’n Egg Cafe won’t have the same menu as Nick’s, with “less ham and more omelettes, scrambles, and daytime sandwiches and salads.”

Rock’n Egg Café is expected to open in February. It will be located at 4616 Eagle Rock Blvd.
