Hearty, good but ridiculously overpriced food.

Mainly a breakfast review. So they have a huge selection, almost too huge. Who wants to spend ten minutes mulling over breakfast. That said, nice selections of classics, but crepes too. They give you way too much food, which some might consider a positive, but come on, too many obese people, they... read more

Lots of options from eggs to burgers, and breakfast to dinner. Good variety of non-meat dishes. Service can be slow at times, but they are always friendly.

I use to frequent Eggspectations alot a few years ago. I went back about 2 months ago and the recipe for the Bayou Bendicit had changed.....for the worse. I was very disappointed. In addition, they have a poor sparkling wine menu (e.g. lacking a good Cava or California Sparling or Gurret)

There is not a broad spectrum of dishes, as all must have eggs in some way. Some are very nice flavored but all look very nice.

Was a little leery of going there as it was a Sunday and it is crowded down there, but it wasn't that bad and the bartenders were great. We were waiting for a table and the bartenders offered some seats away from the door to accommodate us. Food was great, conversation was fantastic and I will return. The bartender made... More

Good food; good service. Eggs Benedict was delicious. There are several variations for eggs and my son enjoyed his omelets.

I had breakfast here and was impressed by the food. I stuck to the traditional Eggs Benedict and everything was perfect. The eggs were perfectly poached, the Hollandaise was light, silky and lemony and, most importantly, used sparingly. I find at breakfast (no matter where) the food tends to get cold pretty quickly, but not here. The potatoes Lyonnaise were... More
