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

Small and out of the way It sits on the banks of a river on the outskirts of downtown Portsmouth, near the Rye town line, All the locals eat here The food is great, the prices are good and the wait staff has been with the owners for many years.

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

Very fair pricing, delicious food. One thing though, no gloves and staff touching food all over the place before serving. Don't sit at the bar, you see this and it kind of ruins the appetite. So i watched my dish carefully, no one touched my eggs, but the omelets get tested for doneness by hand

Can't believe we've been in Portsmouth over 10 years now and haven't written a review on "The Egg". We've tried lots of nice places in the area over the years but this is the best and the most consistent. If you want the standard stuff or something a bit different they knock it out piping hot, and fresh every time.... More

Went for breakfast today. With two of us we were able to get right in with no wait. The coffee was good. We split a gluten free muffin (very tasty). They will even heat and grill it if you want. I had the eggs florentine which was delicious!! I asked for light on the hollandaise sauce and I am glad... More
