Solid breakfast

The place down the street was visited by Guy Fieri. You will wait a long time to eat because of the that. Other high rated breakfast places have lines too. Here there was no line but the reviews were equally as good. We found the food to be excellent across the board. They do the basics right... read more

We took a walk, look for a breakfast place and happened on the Golden Egg. We enjoyed a welcoming waitress and excellent omelettes. A great way to start a day in sunny California.

At The Golden Egg Cafe, you can expect friendly, timely service with a smile along with tasty American breakfast favorites. I ordered eggs and turkey sausage. Everything was prepared well and was what I expected for the first meal of the day. I highly recommend it.

This little breakfast joint is AMAZING!!! The banana bread is homemade and ridiculously good. I'm personally a huge fan of the cornbeef hash and eggs...so good!! By the way the wait staff are the best!! Just "waiting in the lines" doesn't guarantee a great breakfast however, this place can! Orders mimosa or coffee and start your day off right!!!

Wonderful chiliquiles, the best I've had since Cabo! Awesome service, clean restaurant, friendly staff. Good to know they are opening by Victoria Avenue by the harbor. We will dock the boat and go in for breakfast. Sooo, sooo good! The price was right!

This plain little place servesvthe best breakfast in a town full of restaurants that give goodv breakfast. When it changed hands a few years back, I worried quality or service would slip. They didn't. Try the corned beef hash with poached eggs.

Just as some of the other writers have said, I was planning to eat at the other well-reviewed restaurant on this street, but once I got inside there and sat at the narrow counter, I was simply overwhelmed by the noise and confusion, so I left and walked half a block to the Golden Egg. What a great decision! I... More
