Good breakfast

The food was good. The line may be huge, but it goes fast. There were two of us, and we almost didn't go in when we saw the line, but we were seated probably within l0 minutes on a Sunday morning. I believe they close about 2 p.m. so get there early.

friendly staff, fast service. most locals have their own coffee cups in a cupboard at the entrance of the dining room. everyone seems to know everyone else. if you know about killer chipped beef on toast, order it here- its the real deal. great home fries that the chef will cook crisp. so good, I went back the next day.

I frequent this establishment several times a week & have nothing but outstanding comments about The Golden Egg & their employees...especially Beth. She waits on me often & she is courteous, polite & very friendly. If one gets your drinks while your server is assisting another table you are not being ignored....that's just excellent teamwork!!! The prices are very reasonable... More

The food was bland, normal breakfast food. From the reviews i thought it would be much better. Very disappointed. Prices were ok. Average. Service wasn't that good. We had Beth. Had to get another server to get her to get refills. She was too busy talking with one table to pay attention to her other tables. Hostess was a bit... More

Following a great sunrise we tried the Golden Egg for breakfast. Wonderful and at 6:45 quiet and they provided a terrific breakfast. We went with French Toast and a Belgium Waffle and crispy bacon on the side. Perfect just the way we like out food prepared. Staff was busy doing their morning routines and giving you the time to relax.... More

The Golden Egg is probably one of the busiest breakfast joints I have ever seen. It is obvious that everyone likes to have breakfast here. We were only made to wait 10 minutes (if that) for a seat. The food was plentiful and prompt. The wait staff was really great! I would go again.

This is a great place for breakfast. The service was great; food choice abundant; not too crowded for a weekend (we went there a bit early). It was getting filled up. We were in a group and so it was easy to satisfy all appetites - from small combination platters to waffles and pancakes, crepes and omelets !! Prices were... More
