Went here this morning for breakfast with my family. The decor is modern industrial with homey touches. It was very busy especially since it is Monday. We all ordered breakfast. I had a Southwest omelet with the Lyonnaise potatoes and sourdough toast. The toast came not buttered with the butter on the side. It was so good and everything was... More

When we visited on a cold and wet day the interior of Eggspectation beckoned us in to a spacious yet cozy atmosphere. The dining areas seem to be broken into smaller groupings without making them claustrophobic. We had a variety of dishes consisting of egg, salmon, potatoes and fruit. Every dish and component was well sourced, prepared and served promptly.... More

This is a great breakfast restaurant. The basics to creative dishes are available. Large portions at a moderate-high price. Coffee is really good. Service is good. It gets crowded on weekends and a line to be seated can be expected. This rating is a 4 vs 5 because of the price for breakfast. Just a bit too high.

My wife and I had breakfast here again, and as always, the coffee and food was hot and delicious. Anna provided us with super service.

I enjoyed an early catching-up breakfast here with a friend. That's right when they open, so no difficulty finding a table ... though the pkace was reasonably full just an hour later. My order was an omelette, which came with fruit on the side. It was just okay, tasting a little bland. Possibly I should have added cheese or a... More

Love the clever name of this restaurant! I have eaten at the one in Ellicott City and the original in Montreal, Canada! Both exceeded Eggspectations! I have eaten here way too many times to count but it's because the food does exceed expectations, whether you are in the mood for comfort food, delectable breakfast, juicy steak, pasta or a hefty...

We were seated right away, but did not get greeted by our waiter for about 10 minutes. Once he took our drink order we waited another 10 minutes to get our drinks. I don't remember his name, I don't think he introduced himself. Waiter was not very friendly, did not smile at all. Food was not worth $15 per plate.... More

The concept is great, the menu is interesting and the restaurant has some very cute eclectic touches. The food and service do not quite meet expectations. My breakfast burrito was more like a potato with tasteless sausage and dry scrambled eggs in a dry tortilla. Our daughter had her eggs order cooked incorrectly and my sister received turkey bacon instead... More

I've been to Eggspectations a couple of times. The food is fresh and well prepared. It's like a diner, but a little bit fancier. That being said, it's suitable for families and accommodates small children regarding food and high chairs. Great wait staff and large menu. My only complaint is that there is often a long wait. If you come... More
