Amazing food....

Our food was fantastic! We had the duck confit and the scrapple and pancakes. Really tasty. Our waitress seemed a bit distracted. We had to look for her every time we needed something.....as in to order or to get our check. She was really sweet just not really there. Cool place though. I think we... read more

It's a perfect brunch spot. The restaurant is refreshingly open and spacious with a pleasant, minimalist ambiance. Expect a wait anytime between 11-1pm and don't crowd the entrance area or else the hostess will scold you! My favorite thing about egg is that they cover the tables with white paper and provide crayons to doodle on it! I don't care... More

I spotted egg's sign the night before I went there for breakfast on our way to the German bar next door after a show at Brooklyn Bowl. The small, simple white and black sign caught my eye. I ordered an orange juice and the 'two eggs any style' breakfast. First, the juice was fresh squeezed. Yum. I asked for scrambled... More

This was my first visit since they changed locations. We came on a Sunday (slight wait time but it was sunny outside) and then again on a weekday morning (no wait). They will not seat your party until everyone is present. Decor is very simply, somewhat Scandinavian. Food is great. You may think the portions are small in comparison to... More

Nice, friendly place and good omelette but it reminded me why I hadn’t had breakfast all week. American breakfast menus put all sorts of interesting things together and I ended up with a lovely cheese omelette combined with chorizo (more like ground meat than the slices we are used to in Europe) topped with a jalapeno sauce and accompanied by...

Had brunch on Sunday with my son who lives in Brooklyn. Even though it was cold it was packed, yet the wait was very reasonable. The restaurant is simple, minimalistic and clean. Same goes for the menu, simple. Enough items to have a choice, not so extensive that it is confusing. I think that is the secret. Their food is... More

We went there on Sunday at 9 and there were free tables. At 10 there was already a line forming. Egg rothko with kale was great. Many families with small children were there. Reminded me of Prenzlauer Berg cafes in Berlin:)

Yummy breakfast with lots to choose from and a nice change to British breakfasts I am used to having. it's a lovely cafe, light and airy. What makes this place different is the white paper table covers that you can draw on with the crayons provided - great idea!
