Breakfast here is always a treat. So many different combinations to choose from and they were happy to accomodate my (newly diagnosed) gluten free husband. Food is always freshly cooked and piping hot and the staff are lovely. A must-visit!

I've visited Eegons previously but not for a couple of years. On returning from a month away, it was lovely to get a warm welcome and an excellent full English breakfast and a bacon sandwich on a very cold Cowes Saturday morning.

Today we visited Eegons for breakfast. It was absolutely fabulous, the restaurant itself was sunny and warm, a lovely family setting. The food was very well presented and just tasted so good. I loved the white coffee. The chat with the owner and the wonderful Karen was the icing on the cake.

Sunday again time for breakfast and of we go to Eegons, Quite a walk from home but good to work up an appetite. As we arrive to the usual friendly banter and take a seat we are greeted by the owner a vertically challenged man in his advancing years we exchange pleasantries and then he is off to the kitchen...

I don't know if.you do anything different to your bacon but it tasted odd but amazing! I had extra black pud which if I had to criticise could have been cut a bit thicker. Eggs cooked to perfection, toast and a fried slice, good price. I think I'll have to wonder over for the big breakfast one day, I'll certainly... More

Lovely quaint cafe, very friendly superb service, homemade slice of bake well tart and a cuppa tea was well worth our visit. Love the joke notices on the wall and reading some of the "heart shape" messages on the border around the cafe, lovely gesture xx

Me and a group of friends who was returning home after being at Bestival all weekend, found this place by asking a taxi driver where's good to go for breakfast. Very welcoming and friendly staff, food was just what we needed and good prices too! Will definitely recommend it to anyone in the Isle of Wight, I would return if... More
