I must admit......I love eggs

I have been here many times. In the first couple of years they were open, I was not impressed: slow service, cold food, unfriendly wait staff. But I must admit, they have improved over time and I have had many a delicious meal in the past couple of years. I do love eggs, cooked many ways, and the... read more

The restaurant itself was clean. The hosted was courteous, the server was nice, prompt, and got everyone's order right. I got pancakes, scrambled eggs and bacon. The pancakes were spongy and tough to chew. The eggs were ok and the bacon was not completely cooked. (That was fixed by sending it back and cooked a little longer. Overall, it was... More

Loved this place. Excellent breakfast. Wide range of choices. Very nice outdoor seating area. Right in the heart of downtown Silver Spring. I think I can say it was the best blueberry pancakes I've ever had. A little pricey but in tune with the general DC area. Will definitely be back

I'm not a big fan of eggs, so I thought there wouldn't be anything for me eat. However the menu has some awesome alternatives. This is the place to go for brunch for sure. The fountain outside adds a nice touch. The only downside is that is can get quite noisy.

We've gone here several times and gotten a wide variety of their dishes from breakfast to dinner. Everything has been incredibly good. They are also very friendly, and have gone the extra mile on several occasions. Try sitting outside on Thursday - Saturday during summer for live music. Gluten free friendly.

The restaurant is located in the middle of the Town Centre. Has outdoor seating. The menu us varied, American. Breakfast items are available all the time. Very good crepes. The crepes are two large sized crepes per serving. The crepes Suzette is very good with a nice touch of orange liqueur. The noise level can be high when the restaurant... More

Food was beyond my greatest eggspectation. Very yummy, great burgers and salads. There was even options that pleased our picky 3 year old and 1 year old. Would definitely come back!

I like the seating better in Columbia and atmosphere. The food was okay this night. Had a turkey burger and fries. Thought Red Robin burger better.
