Exterior and interior views of The Good Egg Café, 705 Congress Street, shortly after the business was opened by Thomas Roussell and James Ledue. Both had previously worked at F. Parker Reidy's restaurant. "Business has been brisk," said Ledue: "We felt a lot of people out there were looking for a nice place to eat at night. But frankly, our regular morning business is good too. When we opened in June, we thought there might be too much competition for us in the daytime."
Photos published in the Evening Express, on 18 September 1982.
