Truckee, California-born Squeeze In likes to promise they serve the "Best Omelettes On The Planet" and feature an alien mascot to imply the word has even been heard beyond our solar system. Las Vegas had the first chance to put them to the test back in July when the first of eight proposed local locations debuted in Spring Valley, at the Apache Plaza at the corner of Ft. Apache Road and Reno Drive.
Squeeze In No. 2 is now well on its way and looks like it could be ready later this year. Filling a 2,316-square-feet corner spot, not much smaller than their Ft. Apache home, the breakfast-and-lunch restaurant will take over from the shuttered Vegas Valley Organics at the Regal Plaza retail center, close to the intersection of Eastern Avenue and Pebble Road.
Joining neighbors Truffles N Bacon Cafe and the Regal Cinemas Colonnade 14 movie theater, Squeeze In is expected to keep the same 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. opening hours found 15 miles to the west. They’ll also maintain their "down home" and "easy going" atmosphere, quirky interior design and a large menu featuring hearty omelets such as the $14.49 Racy Tracy and $13.99 Spanish Fly tribute to celebrity chef Bobby Flay, plus their $13.79 Aunt Nanny's Veggie Benny and "Jack Johnson Banana Walnut Pancakes."
A third Squeeze In location is also promised for Centennial Hills, but an exact site, or timetable for completion has not yet been revealed.
