The tastiest breakfast ever?

We had to queue for about 40 minutes, but boy was it worth it. Both had the Eggs Rothko, and it was absolutely delicious!

I had high hopes for this place after reading the menu online but it failed to deliver. Yes it looks cool as you walk in and is full of hipsters, but this doesn't mean the food or service is any good. The waiter was less than helpful and I got rudely told they only served French press coffee (sorry for... More

As soon as the Eggs Rothko was put down across the table from me, I immediately regretted my decision to not choose it...that was until my ham, eggs and cheese in a biscuit was sat down beside me with a side of grits. Heaven on a plate! I'm convinced you could order anything here and find it difficult to be... More

This proved an expensive outing, not because of Egg's prices, which are reasonable, but because of the wait time. Time to kill led to a costly little outing to a local clothes shop full of lovely things. But the wait time was half as long as they'd threatened and we were soon seated and ordering brunch. My teenage companion decided... More

This brunch place and a wander round Williamsburg came with a recommendation from a friend back home in the UK. It would have been easy to have been put off. There was a queue outside waiting to eat, you had to sign in to get a place in the queue and the décor seemed more than a little basic. Good... More

Amazing pancakes and bacon! The scrambled eggs are really good too, but if you don't like them runny, tell them to cook them "medium". This is the best breakfast food in Williamsburg. Prepare for long waits to be seated.

We have been to the restaurant on 3 occasions. It hasn't disappointed yet. It is located in a location that is close to where we stay when we visit. The prices are quite reasonable for eating in the city. It's nice to have a breakfast that is "normal" yet has a little upscale twist. You can order pancakes, biscuits and... More

We had six people in our party. The coffee was excellent, served in a French press, food was excellent. The service was attentive and the atmosphere was very comfortable.

I'm still dreaming about the Eggs Rothko. Probably the best breakfast I had all around America. So utterly delicious. Highly recommended

So my friend and I went to egg and when we got there, there was a sheet where you sign in and it said to wait outside after. We put our names on the list and waited 10 minutes outside. We realized that other people were getting seated that were walking in off the streets. We went inside and the... More
