I think I expected more because of the 30 minute wait, and the reviews but it was just "okay". I wanted to try the duck hash but its not served on weekends. :( Ordered the omelette but was told I couldn't add any meat or extras. (I HATE to be told what a chef "can't" do. "Can't" really means "won't"... More

From the queue on Sunday morning, it seems to be the place to be. Unfortunately, waiting 40 minutes was really not worth it. Took their hit, the Rothko, and could hardly finish. Too rich and not so tasty. Nothing really special that could justify the price. Definitely wouldn't recommend it.

I absolutely loved Egg. Went to NYC for a few days so was fishing for recommendations and a friend mentioned this one. We were staying in Manhattan but made the trip out just for the duck hash. Fantastic food, charming service AND you can crayon on the paper tablecloths, what's not to love!

With a name like 'egg' you know your choice of egg dishes is great. Not only are their eggs great, the french toast is awesome. pancakes fluffy and nice. Even though its usually crowded, both times we went there, we were seated quickly. Try them...

Egg doesn't try to overdo it, just delivers well-made food from quality ingerdients. I'm not sure if the brunch justifies the really long wait, but it was certainly good. The service was very good, helpful in ordering and quick (which is nice after the wait). They move you through quickly, but I never felt rushed. All in all, a pretty... More

Nice place for brunch. I think Egg is a great way to start your day if you are visiting Williamsburg.

This is a great brunch spot. We went on a quiet weekday morning... it was pretty empty and the service was attentive and quick. I had french toast which was yummy, I could have licked my plate. the rest of my mates had eggs, of somekind, which rated highly.

As a couple, we had two different experiences. I didn't like it but my friend did so I will admit that I was maybe just wrong in my choices. If you like eggs, of course you will find this place cool. The waiting list was long and the seats are uncomfortable. Williamsburg is a very nice area so you still... More

Ate here before watching the ing nyc marathon. Food was good. Although the wait was long I felt like it moved quick for the amount of people on the list.

I stopped by Egg for some late lunch. It was busy, but the wait was not long at all. I had the french press coffee and the ham biscuit with a side of grits. The ham biscuit was delicious, but the ham was on the dry side, but the jelly made up for it. Service is ok, not the best.
