We come here once a month for brunch/lunch. Skip Saturday and Sun mornings and go around 2 or 3 pm. Much quicker seating and you can still have breakfast. The orange juice tastes fresh and the eggs Benedict (any) are my go-to meal. It fills me up and leaves me satisfied. The crepes are also very delicious. We also enjoy... More

First experience with this chain but found it exceptional. We had brunch with my Mom (she's almost 95) and ate in the outside area. We had the lobster, salmon and crab Benedict's Nd each was perfect ! Great service, ambience and food

We go here for breakfast about once a month. It's a little loud as they have open ceilings, but the food is good. Although we keep saying we're gonna try it, we haven't been there for dinner.

I am at Eggspectation at least 3 times a month for business meetings and client meals. The food is always good and the service is top notch. They serve breakfast lunch and dinner, all well. It's a tad loud, but then many restaurants are these days. I will keep going back.

We have been to this restaurant many times and the food and service and surroundings are always great. If you have never been to this place, go, and you will be very happy. First class!

I have been to this restaurant many many times. I enjoy the unique and creative menu, excellent service, fun atmosphere, and FRESH food. It can be a bit loud which is the only part I don't especially like but it is high energy and it is a minor thing since everything else is right on. I have taken many business... More

Eggspectations has a very extensive menu. A little much for me but it looks like there is something for everyone. I ordered the Reuben & was not disappointed. Just enough dressing & saurkraut! Loved it. Great service, consistent quality. Highly recommend!

Went here with a friend and her 2 year old. The place is cluttered with eclectic decorations, but in a good way that creates a fun vibrant atmosphere. The menu is huge! It was really quite difficult to pick what I wanted to eat. I finally choose the Bayou Benedict and it was just perfect. I loved the combination of... More

This unexpected treasure in an otherwise nondescript strip mall at the borderline of Columbia and Ellicott City. has so many menu choices PLUS daily specials that no one will be disappointed. From numerous creative breakfast items (thus the name 'Eggs-pectations') to luscious hamburgers to crepes to full steak dinners, there is nothing left out. And you can't miss the showcase... More

My husband, friend and I went to Eggspectation in Columbia MD (on Snowden Pkwy) for brunch. The restaurant was very nice. The service was also above par. The food...well...it was ok. We ordered a fruit platter to start. The sliced melons were a bit bland and could have been a bit more ripe. The brunch meals were ok. My friend... More
