Great eggspectations

I actually went here 3 times in the last week. Twice I went with the visiting in-laws and once with my wife and daughter. Really chill atmosphere with a good wait staff. The worst part is figuring out what to pick because they have so many great options. The lyonnaise potatoes are AWESOME and come... read more

We went there for a wedding rehearsal dinner and they claimed the air conditioning was on but the whole party was sweating and we all had to change our clothes after. I will not ever visit this restaurant again it was extremely uncomfortable and I almost passed out from heat exhaustion.

The menu is varied--more than omlettes and egg dishes. A bit of variety and food is good. Service is 'iffy" at times, Nice for couples and families. Also has a private room for parties of 10 -20, sogood for luncheon or meeting or small gathering of friends--birthday, anniversary.

I was naive to hold eggspectation to some expectation. I ordered an omelete which was about 14 dollars, with food that looked like it had been pre-digested. Blant, overcooked or overly sweet, everything managed to surpass my worse eggspectations. Never again.

The berry salad and the hamburgers are excellent. Love them so much I haven't tried anything else, and received conflicting responses when I asked if the eggs were cage-free. If they are not cage-free, shame on Eggspectations.

Great Silver Spring restaurant located in main circle of downtown. Great American food serving breakfast all day and other choices as well. Good prices and nice size that accommodates well. Excellent desserts and food choices. My favorite is Eggstravaganza which included eggs, bacon, and French toast. Winner!
