“Miguel makes some famous world-class omelets,” Patrick Grate ’26 said. “I get an omelet with ham, tomato, and cheese … Everything within one egg omelet. It’s beautiful. When you become a frequenter of the omelet station here at NCW, you kind of get to know the personal styles of each cook. I personally like Miguel’s style a lot, and I prefer getting my omelets from Miguel, but also no staff has made an omelet I haven’t enjoyed.”
While waiting in line to order omelets, many students, especially omelet station regulars, talk with Miguel Villamar, the omelet chef who is there five days a week, and who cooked 95 percent of respondents’ eggs.
“Why do I like to make omelets? Because I get paid for it!” Villamar joked. “I like to talk to people. I like to talk to people a lot. I like to see everybody. I like to greet. I wanna make you smile in the morning. That’s why.”
