My wife and I come here often for breakfast on the weekends. The food and specialty coffees are great. My only complaint are the hostesses. Although we've been here over 20 times, I could honestly say we've NEVER been properly greeted by the hostesses. They seldomly look you in the eye when you walk in, they're sometimes checking thier smart... More

This is a Canadian-owned "chain" restaurant, though the food does not shout "chain" at you. All the ingredients seem wonderfully fresh whether you are enjoying breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Their benedicts are luscious and the hollandaise is light and bright--very yummy. The salads are many and varied and those that we've tasted are quite good. We've not eaten many of... More

Since this restaurant is in an "industrial" designed setting, it is quite loud. Not a great place for an intimate dinner, more for a casual/festive time. Delicious food; Wonderful bar; Outstanding desserts; Have fun! Avoid Sundays until after 2:00. Wait time can be VERY long!

This was not our first visit to Eggspectations, but it might well be our last. It was about 7 P.M. on a Sunday evening and the place was fairly empty so we were seated promptly. My companion wanted breakfast and ordered the "All American"; I ordered the chicken-stuffed crepes. When our food finally arrived, my companion's eggs were completely overcooked,... More

I have eaten there a few times. The food is good, nice selection on the menu. It can get crowded and noisy but the service is generally good and prices are reasonable.

I love breakfast all day and the selection here is wonderful. The downside is that everybody loves this place, so there can be a line waiting to get in. Worth the wait

This was my first time at Eggspectation and I expected a long wait on a Saturday morning, but we were seated immediately and greeted promptly. Our order was taken promptly too. I ordered pancakes and bacon, not eggs, and it was delicious. Very good food. My companions enjoyed their breakfast too. It was loud, however, and it was very costly... More

Eggspectation serves breakfast any time, but they also have lunch, dinner and a full bar. Worth the trip.
