It's gonna be omelets for days in Carrollton with the opening of Sunny Street Café, an all-day breakfast restaurant opening at 2150 N. Josey Ln., just south of George Bush Turnpike, in Carrollton.

According to a spokesperson, the restaurant will open on October 9.

This will be the ninth location in Texas for Sunny Street Café, a small fast-casual chain founded in Dublin, Ohio in 2007 that serves breakfast and lunch, from 6 am-2:30 pm daily. It also has locations in Ohio, Illinois, Missouri, Alabama, and Edmonton, Alberta.

The menu ranges from pancakes and eggs benedict at breakfast to Buffalo chicken salad and "big" BLTs at lunch. They're also very big on breakfast and lunch catering, with boxed breakfasts and lunches plus fruit and sandwich platters.

In addition to basic breakfasts with eggs, toast, and choice of bacon, sausage or ham, there are meat-centric breakfasts combining eggs with chicken-fried steak or smoked sausage; all of the above come with choice of hash browns, grits, or fruit.

The Power Breakfast is their "healthy" (ish) option with scrambled egg whites, chicken sausage, fruit, and toast. They also have a strong juice game with not just orange but carrot and "green" juices.

There are omelets, cinnamon roll pancakes, bananas foster pancakes, and French toast. Specialty items include a breakfast quesadilla with eggs and black bean and corn salsa; a burrito with egg, sausage, onion, peppers, cheese, and potatoes; and a protein wrap with egg whites, spinach, and chicken sausage.

"Loaded" hash browns come with eggs and sausage gravy. There are also biscuits stuffed with sausage, peppers, onions, and cheese, topped with sausage gravy.

Lunch has sandwiches such as a Reuben, grilled cheese, and turkey club. There's a black Angus burger, chorizo chili, and a chicken flatbread.

In September 2017, a franchise group signed a deal to add 20 new locations in Dallas-Forth Worth over the next four years. Those kinds of deals are often more talk than action, but lo and behold, they've opened five locations in North Dallas, Roanoke, Little Elm, Willow Park, and Coppell, joining three previously established locations in the Tarrant County cities of Weatherford, Haltom City, and North Richland Hills.

This newest franchise development slated for the Dallas-Fort Worth area represents significant growth potential for the chain, notes Mike Stasko, vice president of brand strategy for Columbus, Ohio-based Sunny Street Cafe.

Serving up a menu of all-day breakfast and lunch in a warm, community atmosphere, Sunny Street Cafe is uniquely suited for the welcoming arms of the Texans.

Sunny Street Cafe VP says in a release that the chain focuses on a menu that is "chef driven and guest friendly — comfort food reimagined," he says. "Our bright, comfortable cafés serve as a gathering place for communities that we strive to connect with."

The locations have been both new construction and second-generation opportunities that have been renovated. Sunny Street recently executed an evolutionary redesign that emphasizes a bright and welcoming feel, with a modernized interior layout and décor that includes a wood feature wall, butcher-block tables, counters, and seating.
