This Eggspectation was a great stop for a brunch. It was certainly crowded, but there was a lot of seating space on two levels. I ended up with a great egg and potato scramble skillet; it was large, and tasty. The smoothie was made with...More

I usually have eggs with bacon and toast. The fruit is very fresh and the coffee is good. The service is better on the upper level.
