The restaurant is easy to find on Route 59 and the building is up to date. A friend and I stopped in recently for lunch. The food was good, servers were friendly and service was timely. Good place for comfort food.

Stopped here while passing through town. Huge portions—a tremendous value for the money. Our server (possibly the owner?) was very friendly and attentive. Food was tasty and fresh. This is a real “breakfast comfort food” type of place.

The young man who took care of our group yesterday for breakfast was great. We had a few requests and he was very accommodating. The food was similar to many other local breakfast spots except they gave both fruit and potatoes with the omelet. Plenty...More

My husband and I are new to the area and have driven by Egg Yolk Cafe several times. We have been reluctant to stop in, despite good reviews, because the parking lot looked full. It did this time too, but we had extra time. We...More
