We stayed at the Wentworth Hotel and Spa, which is just down the road from the Golden Egg. Our breakfasts were delicious, the service was prompt and friendly and I would highly recommend.

This is obviously the place where locals go to catch breakfast and lunch. I went there for lunch with my friend, but if I were to eat breakfast at a good and reasonably priced place, this would be it. You can tell this is a long history family place.

Go here- great food and good prices. Don't overpay at the Wentworth or Ihop. Staff was friendly and food came out of the kitchen fast. Had the twin breakfast, pancakes were great. Try the Cinnamon Coffee!

Huge selection of food items and great, friendly staff. Food kind of bland, and some of it was even cold.
