Good breakfast for variety

Sometimes a bit of a wait especially on weekend mornings, but the breakfast & desserts are is good and other food offered. The pricing is a bit high for breakfast but the restaurant often runs Groupons and other discounts.

A group of ladies met for an evening and we had a back room to ourselves, which was nice. Our wait staff was very attentive and available. I had the seared tuna on a bed of greens which was good and a beer. Most others had ample servings of omelets and mixed drinks. I was told the mixed drinks were... More

Good food and large servings. We dined there for brunch one day and had breakfast items as menu had a good variety/selection. While food is good, it is somewhat pricey though so not suited for someone on a budget.

The food at Eggspectation is very good. Unfortunately I cannot afford to go there very often as it is extremely expensive for the small portion my wife and I were served. If money is no object, enjoy the food. Our breakfast for 3 guests was in excess of $65.00 without tip and we had no alcoholic beverages!!

I love to have breakfast meetings and Eggspectations breakfast menu is great (muffins especially good) but you can't hear yourself think because it is too noisy.

The food here is very good, with reasonable portion size. Count on a waiting line and tight parking. It can be noisy when full. Service was very good - there but not obtrusive.

Great place for variations on all things with eggs. Other choices available too. Busy on weekend mornings. Service is variable on week day evenings.

Expensive, long wait, average food, super noisy. How can a cheese omelette cost $18? Why is this place popular? I have no idea.
