Expensive for Breakfast, but Dinner is worth it

We visited this place twice before writing a review. Our first trip, I ordered the Eggstravaganza - a basic breakfast of eggs, choice of meat, french toast and potatoes. I was disappointed in how boring the dish was. The eggs and bacon were fine but I've had better french toast at cheaper... read more

We have been there before for breakfast but this was our first dinner trip. We love the breakfast choices; a huge variation on routine omelets and other things. The dinner menu was more run of the mill but food was good. Service was so so. Would recommend it more for breakfast.

Menu is average varieties of selections. My French Dip sandwich was overcooked and tough to chew. Wife ordered an frittata egg dish which had a cheese topping. Quality of cheese was below average . Like the kind you get squirted on top of a drive through fast food restaurant ..Service, Ambiance was above average !!! Prices do not support the... More

Food is good...not great. Service is hit or miss. HoCo is short on breakfast spots so this place stays crowded on weekends but it mostly because there's no where else to go but Bob Evans.

The menu was interesting but not extensive for vegetarians. We had a voucher (Groupon?) that helped to defray costs, but the restaurant was just too expensive. If the food were outstanding, the prices might be more understandable, but I can get the same quality at cheaper places. One exception was a muffin we purchased; it was priced fairly for the...

I love Eggspectation. It's a little bit of a hike for us, but it's always well worth it in the end. Their hot chocolate and coffee selections are delicious, as are their smoothies. It's hard to go wrong with any one of those choices (I'm partial to the hot chocolate though). Out of their breakfast selections one of my favorites... More

A regular place that we go, and it is consistently good. It has a nice atmosphere, extensive menu, and good service. It is quite reasonably priced, and the happy hour menu, both food and drinks is especially worth it.

Great service, bartenders are on point. Seats at the bar can be hard to find but the service is fine at the booths by the bar.

The waffles are 5 stars to start off.... The other breakfasts we had were all good but just beware it is really expensive. We spent about $70.00 for three of us at breakfast time.

I own a bar and was pleasantly surprised how good the food, the drinks and the service was on an average TUESDAY! The presentation was awesome and the atmosphere was nicely appointed. Never thought of going here for happy hour - but it ROCKS!
