Fantastic breakfasts.

We had breakfast here and felt like we were regulars after two visits. The fare ranges from eggs and bacon to some creative eggs benedict dishes and much more.

Pancakes with a twist, Golden Egg Style. I am a big guy and I finished 2.5 pancakes. Coffee where you never see the bottom of your mug. Very busy establishment with great service and hot and delicious meals. Blueberries and granola, at 68, now Ican say I have something new. YUM.

The food here is exceptional. In addition, the people are exceptional as well. Probably the best breakfast food I have had in a long time.

Local breakfast joint with different specials every day. Very extensive breakfast choices and each day something from the regular menu is on the specials menu for a reduced price. Great, friendly service where the servers work hard to help you and each other. Great prices as well. Each day also brings a specialty coffee in addition to the regular choices.... More

Very friendly service, great value and an awesome breakfast await you at the Golden Egg. Try the Twins Special for a great start to your seacoast morning, then go take a nice walk and soak up the local atmosphere.

We had lunch here while visiting the area. The meals were really good, and service was good. Restaurant is not at all fancy, looks like a favorite for the locals, as the waitstaff seemed to know most everyone. They serve only breakfast and lunch, and you want to get there early for lunch. Portions are generous & homemade. Great spot... More
