We both had bacon and eggs which were among the best we've had anywhere. Good breads and the potatoes were delicious. We have had breakfasts on four continents and we would not hesitate to return here.

I introduced my best friend to a man who is now her husband at the Ellicott City Eggspectation so this chain will always have a special place in my heart. So of course when I moved to downtown Silver Spring my fiance and I immediately went to the Ellsworth Drive location. The food, as usual was very good, but the... More

Chicken Mushroom Spinach Red Pepper Crepe was delicious, Pasta with Shrimp and Chicken was very good Had Calamari for starters as well very good. Service was quick friendly and polite. If in Silver Springs or Washington DC area well worth the stop. Cost is a little high but food is worth the dereference.

The food is always good and you can substitute just about anything with healthy options like egg whites and fruit. My favorite is the veggie egg white omelette. The only drawback is that, while the staff is always very friendly, the service is inconsistent. You can wait a long time to be served and may need to wave down people... More

Stopped in for a beer after having a burger at Fudruckers where they do not offer beer. Eggspectation is a great place. Large patio where you can watch the action outside and enjoy the beverage of your choice. We recommend the craft beers on tap. Great service, great location, and great atmosphere.

New waiting system uses your cell phone so you can check your place in line, which is really handy. Their menu has a great selection of options, which is great when you're not an egg person. Plenty of choices, attentive staff for such a busy restaurant.

We went here two days in a row. Day 1 wasn't great...the restaurant was almost empty but service was slow and they forgot my husband's toast (it came after we were done eating). It was hot enough that other patrons complained. They turned up the a/c and within 15 minutes it was fine. The food itself was great. Day 2... More

I've been to eggspectation a couple times before but never this location. They have nice outdoor dining in addition to indoor seating. The food was delicious. I got a strawberry and Bannana flambe' French toast. It tasted great but I should have gotten waffles because of all the liquid, the French toast was soggy. My mom got an omelette that... More
