We love golden egg. Eat here frequently when travelling thru Portsmouth. Eggs are farm fresh, muffins are hearty and tasty. Ditto for pancakes. Nice wait staff and good prices.

Came across this spot as I took a drive. So busy the cars lined the street at 10am. Took a spot at the counter and was met by a hard working friendly staff and patrons. Great, diverse selection. Worth a stop!

Third year in a row going to the Golden Egg and have never been disappointed. The place is laid back and looks tired but the food is great and reasonably priced. New specials every day on a hand printed menu. Well worth the trip as it sits on a back road slightly out of the downtown area. Highly recommended.

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
