Great Breakfast

Stopped in for a late breakfast, really nice food. Lovely people and a great cup of coffee. It has no toilets so visit the local one up the street before you visit

Visited for a quick early lunch with 3 little grandchildren. Welcomed and orders taken quickly. Pleasant staff, small cafe, food well cooked - cheese omelette, steak panini, childrens' usual mix of chicken nuggets, fish fingers , chips and beans or peas. Could do with a better filtration system as there was a smell from frying on entry and even more... More

A good old fashioned cafe with lovely people. IF you want a good fry up or poached eggs on toast with no frill cafe but good food then this is the place for you. Cafe is in need of updating but it still does not detract from the pleasant staff and the atmosphere. They also have a wall of poetic... More

I wish I could review the food, the staff, the ambience, etc but despite the "open all year" advertising, I have visited Cowes twice in the last month midweek specifically to eat lunch at Eegons, only to find the place closed on both occasions. I live on the other side of the Island and recently was lucky enough to be... More

Rod A, Owner at Eegon's of Cowes, responded to this review

In reply to the above comment, Eegon's are sorry that the person concerned clearly isn't happy with our opening arrangements, so in offering an olive branch we are happy to double the original voucher price and can only assume that the voucher was purchased supporting one of the many charities Eegon's sponsor. However whilst trading in Cowes for the past... More

Visiting cowes again we had to go to Eegons for what has to be one of the best breakfasts in the country, especially value for money. Staff are always friendly and the food is always freshly prepared and served on hot plates(unusual these days). The menu is very varied with plenty of choice for all appetites. We have visited Eegons... More
