“High quality eggs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

The eggs benedict served with new potatoes and a generous fruit side were so well-prepared that we returned again during our four-day stay in Montreal. There are several of these establishments in the city (and, we found out later, even in Virginia). The restaurant was clean and appealing and the service was helpful and swift.

“Baby friendly restaurant with an extensive menu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013 via mobile

This is a chain and we visited the location near the Ritz Carlton. It is super kid friendly. My 11.5 month old son was offered a high chair right away, and the noise level was just right - we can carry on a conversation without worrying about our son's babble disturbing others.

The menu is extensive and not just about eggs. The Montreal style bagel they had was quite good. We replaced toasts in our entrees with the bagel and were very glad we did.

Service was friendly and sincere. All in all a solid place for brunch especially if you have a little one.

“Great Breakfast Spot!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

Our hotel didn't serve a hot breakfast but we'd seen Eggspectation and thought we would give it a try. I'm glad we did! There was a wonderful selection of breakfast items. We opted for the omelets with the quinoa. I really liked that they had several healthy options, from fresh fruit to omelets made with one egg and two egg whites. I'd give the quinoa a miss in the future as it tasted a bit like soggy birdseed, but the omelet with its salsa and avocado, was great.

Service was quick and friendly and the prices were reasonable.

“We snuck in here for a late lunch.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

My husband and I went in here for a late lunch/early dinner. Wow what a nice surprise. We had homemade soup for starters, then a salad and a burger with the smoked meat that Canada is know for. It was delicious. We left with our stomachs full and our pocket book still full. I would love to try it for breakfast, probably great for that also. Our Greek waitress was friendly and nice.
