If you are staying at Wentworth by the Sea, this is a great alternative to eating in the hotel. The service is fast and friendly, the prices are reasonable and the food delicious. What more could you ask for? Give it a try and you won't be disappointed.

I love visiting this place as a local! They have a great selection and generous portions! The staff is very friendly and the place is usually bustling unless ur there right when they open. I love the flavored coffee they offer, above the regular. And they change up the flavors. The weekend's can get busy during the prime hours but... More

My husband and I are staying at Wentworth by the Sea and had breakfast on our way out to sightsee. I had the French toast and it was great. My husband had the ElPaso scrambled with jalapeño Chicken sausage, peppers, onions and pepper jack cheese with home fries and toast. It was delicious as well. He said the coffee was... More

I ordered an Omelettes with peppers, onions, tomatoes, bacon and a half order of cheese. Everything was fresh and prepared well - a little light on the bacon, but still good. The home fries were tasty without being spicy - cooked perfectly although I am always looking for a little crunch which they did not have. Toast and coffee was... More

After spending the happiest foodie vacation of his life, my teen grandson thought he had eaten lobster every wonderful way possible - and then he had a lobster omelet and a blackberry-peach homemade muffin for breakfast at the Golden Egg the morning we went home.. Fabulous! Terrific! Over-the -top!!

The Golden Egg has been around for as long as I can remember. Good quality food and generous portions. They always have some unique and tasty specials on the menu and also the typical basic breakfast items. Definitely worth the visit. Also, very child-friendly restaurant. If you don't mind the slightly outdated furnishings, and basic decor it is certainly worth... More

Love this place. The hash is great. The wait staff is even better. Nice old fashioned breakfast place like the old Pete's Coffee shop in Leominster, MA.

We visited the Golden Egg for a lunchtime breakfast. The restaurant was busy, but there were tables available. Service was good, cleanliness was excellent. There are certain things we look for as breakfast aficionados. Are the home fries well prepared and unique? Here, average. Are the eggs cooked properly? Yes. However, the omelette had a really odd texture. Veggies in... More
