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

Located on Main Street, it has a small parking lot, but parking is no problem. The restaurant is small, but cozy. Painted in bright sunshiny colors, it is neat as a pin. Service is quick and friendly. The breakfast menu has anything you would want. I ordered the corned beef hash. It was tasty and did not have a bit... More

Wanted to try the other place a few doors down, but, thanks to that jerk Guy F., the line was around the block. Saw the Golden Egg Cafe (great name, huh?) and tried it. There was no wait, the owner was very friendly. The food was terrific. We had some trouble with the service, but, got that ironed out when... More

We were planning on going to Pete's down the road, but there were long lines so we went to the Golden Egg and it was amazing. Had two great omeletes, great banana bread, home fried potatoes with rosmary, fresh fruit and excellent service!!!
