Bidens dine at Egg in Rehoboth Beach
REHOBOTH BEACH – Spending another weekend at their North Shores home, President Joe Biden and first lady Jill Biden snuck away Sunday to enjoy Egg, one of the most popular breakfast spots in town.
The Bidens dined for about 40 minutes at the small spot at 510 Rehoboth Ave., according to White House press pool reports.
Opened in 2016 by owner Melissa Postles, Egg has quickly become a go-to spot for tourists and locals alike – the Bidens included. They have reportedly eaten at the small breakfast-and-brunch café a few times after Joe left the vice president’s office in 2016.
Hope Snider, daughter of Postles and a manager at Egg, said she received a visit from the U.S. Secret Service a few hours before the visit to inform them of the possible arrival, which only served to heighten the excitement of her staff. Now in the off-season for tourism, it was a bit easier to accommodate the Bidens and several tables of staff and security for breakfast during a typically busier part of their breakfast rush, she added.
The president turned to his go-to order of buttermilk pancakes while the first lady, who has a few favorites on the menu, went with the popular lobster Benedict, Snider said.
“It’s always exciting when they’re in town and we’re really honored that they keep coming back to Egg,” she added. “It’s pretty incredible; our whole staff yesterday was just so happy to be of service to the president and the first lady.”
It’s the second time that the first couple have patronized a business while at their beach getaway home, having dined at Matt’s Fish Camp and watched a movie at Atlantic Theater back in August.
