Great little place to meet and eat!

Went here for breakfast every day while we visited my sister. It's a wonderful breakfast that screams hometown.

Decided to try Golden Egg as we wanted to skip the long wait at the recommended place next door. So glad we did. Had a delicious breakfast and the super nice staff made it even better.

We went here as Pete's a few doors down was way too long of a line and we were hungry! We got seated right away outside on their patio and had a nice omelet with potatoes. The cinnamon roll was made out of biscuit mix so it wasn't what my niece expected but it was still good. We had to... More

The potatoes are just too fragrant. They are infused with rosemary which makes for a savory breakfast...sort of a dinner potato served at breakfast. It is too specific a flavor. I couldn't finish my potatoes, and that's my big splurge when I eat out-so it was a bummer. I vote-get a potato with no rosemary and more people will wander... More

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 - crisp bacon,... 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.
