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!

We stumbled in here on a whim and were very pleased by what we found. Ok, so the door policy of "write your name down on this and then stand outside" was odd, impersonal and ridiculous when there were clearly ten tables free inside. Nevertheless, we enjoyed learning about southern food ("erm, what are grits? What is scrapple? Why would... More

Recent visit to NYC w/new friends in Williamsburg area of Brooklyn...He says, "are you hungry? Let's go to my favorite place, Egg." Need I say more? really? Good clear, clean energy. Excellent choices and staff flexibility for slight changes. All three of us were very happy campers.

This is a popular restaurant on the weekends - but the line moved quickly - we only had a 20 minute wait. And it was worth the wait. I had the omelet - light, fluffy, cheesy. No overcooked eggs here. My dining companion had the eggs Rothko - again, excellent. The brioche was light and buttery. I like the new... More

Food at egg was great (omelet & the eggs Rothko) our service was pleasant but very difficult to attract to the table and after we'd started eating I noticed the special's menu down the back of the restaurant - we would have ordered from it. The daily dishes sounded great. French press coffee was really good, wait time for our... More

Great breakfast! I loved the cheese grits and candied bacon! This is a beautiful modern restaurant! Come before 10 am on the weekend to avoid the rush because this place is so popular.

New space on N.3rd makes it much easier to get a seat. Eggs Rothko still amazing! The hot sauce really takes it to another level.
