Breakfast Bonanza

You name the breakfast food and they have it. Plenty of other offerings as well. The restaurant is beautiful and a perfect date setting.....even has a fireplace. It has a private room for large parties as well.

I loved the food. It was so good. My waitress was very friendly and nice and made sure she checked up on us numerous times. The only problem i had was that it was to cold inside the eatery. How ever everything else was lovely. Will be back again

Eggspectations in Downtown Silver Spring is always a treat. Start with one of their toasted gigantic Blueberry, Corn, Etc. Muffins with a Fruit Smoothie and then try to decide which of their pancakes, waffles, yogurt parfaits or Egg-stravanganza's you are going to order. I guarantee it will be a tough decision for early in the morning. And plan on taking... More

This place was ok. I like the idea and they had very creative things on the menu, but we had the Eggs Benedict and Sunrise Omelet, both average dishes. Server was very busy at breakfast so we did not see him much.

There are a lot of restaurants in this neighborhood but I wanted to try something different. The service is very good, friendly and helpful. Coming from the New Jersey, the land of the diner, I felt the food was good, but nothing special. They tout their Lyonnaise potatoes, but they were just ok. I got a mushroom, bacon and asparagus...

This is our go to place in Silver Spring. They have great variety. So you can choose between the many egg dishes they are known for, different salads, or even burgers. Prices are reasonable and the service is good. I like the eclectic decorations as well. It's kid friendly as well as there is plenty of space. It's perfect for... More
