“Great alternative to IHOP”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

Nice out of the way place. GREAT OMLETTES. Can get crowded quick. I like the place. Can get pricey with added ingredients. The Atomic is the best.

“A visitors surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014 via mobile

This wonderful breakfast restaurant is not in a normal tourist area, but it is worth the drive. The portions are large. The process are fair. The flavors amazing and the people genuine. What a wonderful discovery!

“Fantastic start for the day, great breakfast & coffee!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2014

Do not let the name inhibit you from having breakfast at Atomic! Located in a neighborhood strip center, this is obviously a local favorite. We dined on Mother's Day morning, and many families were there. Despite the crowd, service was fast, the food even better. When arriving as a non-local, be sure to get a menu so you are ready to order. My wife had an omelette filled with all her favorites. I tried the traditional breakfast. Both were excellent and they did not have to wash the dishes. Be sure to get some Hawaiian Toast. Delicious. Atomic is not that large for eating in. In fact, it appeared as much business was going take-out this day. If you are traveling to Corpus Christi, be sure to eat here, not at the hotel free breakfast. Enjoy!

“Best omlette ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

I am not sure what is done differently with the omlettes but it is great. You go up to front , order and they bring it when ready. Fresh furit , french toast, pancakes, bisquits all available and every thing we had was good.

“The Lazy Omelette”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2014

Perhaps they should rename the place "The Lazy Omelette" because the thing that they serve is not an omelette. I ordered the Vegetarian Omelette. The ingredients were fresh and the service was nice and prompt, but you can't toss scrambled eggs in a pan, scramble in a bunch of ingredients, cook the egg until it browns, fold it in half then toss it on a plate and call it an omelette. That is just over-cooked scrambled egg with stuff in it. Seriously -- they have all the makings of a great restaurant and from other reviews they seem to have tasty food, but maybe read a cookbook or watch a video. "Omelette" is a real culinary word that refers to egg of a certain consistency and texture. Forego touting the fact that you make an enormous 3-egg omelette and instead focus on making one of the few "real" omelettes in Corpus Christi.
