A Louisville-based breakfast eatery has added another location to its menu of metro area openings.

Wild Eggs is taking 4,400 square feet north of The Tap in the Pulliam Square apartment development, according to construction filings and the project’s developer, TWG Development LLC. A 2,400-square-foot slot is now the only remaining space available in the first phase of the large Pulliam Square project, much of which will be built where The Indianapolis Star’s headquarters once stood.

The brunch franchise was founded in Louisville and has four locations there, along with two in Lexington and one in Bowling Green, Kentucky. The company also has a franchise in Denver.

The menu includes breakfast staples—pancakes, waffles, french toast and a lengthy list of egg entrees. The restaurant also offers biscuits and gravy, cinnamon rolls and crepes.
