We were visiting Portsmouth and checked Tripadvisor for a good breakfast spot. Golden Egg had a line, however, the lady in charge is really good at her job and had everyone seated quickly. The menu is extensive and imaginative, probably one of the reasons it is busy. I tried the waffle special with rhubarb and strawberries. It was good, however,... More

You can tell by the everpresent lines that you are in for a treat. Even though the place is usually packed, the service is great, the coffee is always full (and bottomless) and the food is fantastic. I try to go whenever I visit Portsmouth or Rye.

Great little breakfast spot. Huge menu. And everything we had was very good. They seated us really quickly even though they were busy and we had a party of nine. And our food came out very quickly as well. Great service. Good food. A good place for breakfast if you're close by.

There's no frills to this place but it's just a good homestyle breakfast at a local spot. The omelettes & blueberry pancakes were delicious. Definitely a good spot to start your day!

If your looking for excellent breakfast in a small town atmosphere on the east coast then try the Golden Egg in Portsmouth NH. It's not big or fancy but the omlettes are delicious. My husband had a vegetable omelette and it looked and tasted as if someone had gone to the backyard and picked their freshest most delicious vegetables and... More

Mostly locals. Service could not be better, very friendly staff. Reasonable prices. Variety of omelets, pastries, fresh fruit, seafood (yes at breakfast) is over the top.

Just came home from a week in Rye Beach. We ate breakfast everyday at the Golden Egg. Very speedy service, incredible specials, caring staff, delicious new flavors of coffee each day. Located 10 minutes from Rye Beach. Full of locals enjoying a good meal.

The value was good. Typical diner food for the area with warm staff. I had sausage gravy and eggs. The gravy was OK, nothing spectacular, but I WAS in New England, not the south. My husband's breakfast burrito looked very good. On the whole I recommend this as a good stop for breakfast. Don't let the "road end" signs put... More

Granted that a lot of places are going to charge you $7-$10 for a made-to-order three-egg omelet so if you are comfortable paying $25-$30 for two breakfasts, with coffee, don't take my advice to share an omelet and enjoy a huge breakfast for yourself. My wife and I ordered the omelets; mine was the "Super" veggie with cheese and hers... More
