Can you help me remember this book from my childhood?

I was given this book in the early 80s. It was a large, hard covered book with beautiful illustrations. It was about a girl who visits her grandmother. While there she sees another girl outside. She takes a pram out and goes for a walk with this other little girl.

I think the girl has breakfast with her grandparents, and her grandfather has an egg in an egg holder and cracks it with a spoon. They might have eaten artichoke too.

The characters have round faces. The grandparents’ house is large, with a lot of fancy furniture. The girl at first feels lonely but later grows to like it there.

Any ideas? Thanks!

Amazon claims some of the Grandma's Attic books came out in hardcover. The publication dates work, the illustrations are nice and feature round faces, and there's one with a story about a girl, her friend, and a pram. So even though it's a wild guess, I reckon it's worth mentioning.

Best answer: The Visit
I am positive this is it. I remember the egg cup too!

Response by poster: You got it velebita, thank you!

And thank you Monsieur Caution, for your guess.

Here are some really great pictures, too.
