Gets busy for breakfast or brunch but lunch is good to go!

I particularly Loved the seared tuna salad;) Unfortunately I have not been to this one again since I tried one time and line was way too long

Great food, great environment, great staff! This place is delicious and I definately recommend to anyone. They do get very busy so calling ahead is highly recommended. The hostesses are always great and the staff is very accommodating. Food options for all ages. Enjoy!

Took us 15 minutes to get a seat on a Saturday at lunch time; which I consider very reasonable. Once seated, it became immediately obvious that we were not going to have a conversation during this meal. The noise level is unreal, I could hardly hear anything my wife was saying and my ears were ringing when we left. We... More

Visited Eggspectations with a small travel group. I wasn't aware they offered separate, less noisy dining areas. Will definitely have to request this next time. I often stop in at this location for brunch however, and while the fare is consistently good & I like the cell phone notification of ready tables, it really is just ALWAYS too busy, crowded... More

Stopped with friends and family. Crowded, noisy, pricy. However, a pleasant visit, server congenial, food quality good. Not a place to go for an everyday experience, but an interesting place on occasion.

Get hear early to avoid a wait. We were seated right away and the waitress was over promptly. She had a little trouble getting the drink order right but I guess the bar actually makes the drink. She did get it fixed right away. The dinner order came out quickly. I had the vegetarian crepe and it was excellent. It... More
