Warm welcome, good food

Classic British breakfast and cafe fare. Delivers what you expect. With a personal touch and a sense of tradition in the surroundings, with many messages on the walls to the customer. Very warm welcome. Definitely recommended if a filling fry-up is what you are after. Note though that there is... read more

Went to eegons to day with my team mates from the harbour kitchen this morning. we were welcomed by friendly staff, and great food. I think we might have to make it a monthly thing!

Didn't have long as I was booked on the ferry, let them know and the service was fantastic. Sorted everything out so I could run for the ferry when it arrived. Really friendly service and good, affordable food. Highly recommend.

Ive been coming here for 3yrs. Lovely breakfast and staff have gone above and beyond. Katie rod and mr chef man have become friends. Food piping hot untill last mouthful. I go for the bonanza as brill value but plenty to choose from off menu. Well worth a visit. I'll see you guys on my next visit to the island.... More

Great choice for most diets and pockets. Ask for vege and vegan-attention is gratifying! The food was fast and well cooked and the welcome was warm. You can also sponsor a heart on the wall for the local heart charity!

A gang of us tucked into a Bonanza Breakfast each, but only 3 finished (I was one)! Service was friendly and efficient and the food was good and plentiful. The sausages weren't the best, but you can't have it all ways and certainly can't knock the value. Looking forward to a return visit to try the Steakfast.

Very disappointed, especially as I have been in a few times before and been happy, but it seems to have changed, there were not the choices there were, and the Waitress seemed uninterested to the point of being rude. The 'Big Breakfast' wasn't very commendable, the Sausages were tasteless catering rubbish, and the Fried Bread reduced to half a slice.... More

If I see my young creeping out of the house at breakfast time I know I have to follow to Eegons where they are being spoilt by the proprietor Rod Ainge and friendly girls who seem to be there for ever and always cheerful. The purpose of the place is to eat well and it never disappoints with fresh good... More
