Feeling hungry and walking through Cowes and feeling that the numerous baguette shops would not fill the bill we went into Egon's. This is a real throwback a proper cafe serving a range of breakfasts that go from your basic egg and bacon up to the breakfast challenge!!! As visited by Freddie Flintoff, if you want a mug of tea...

I have been visiting Eegon's for at least 15 years.There is a reason why so many locals go there, including yachtsmen, council workmen and builders - it is excellent value and gives you a first class fried breakfast! Not only that but the staff are friendly, and the banter between owner Rod, his staff and customers is always enjoyable. The... More

I love Eegon's, especially for their epic and varied cooked breakfast selection. I usually have the all day breakfast which is wonderful except for very poor quality economy sausages. The bacon is always excellent (my son says it is the best bacon sandwich he has ever had and he has had a lot) but if they invested in slightly more... More

Met a friend for breakfast before popping around the corner to sail from the Island Sailing Club. Really tasty English breakfast, well cooked and served up with a smile.

It is the only place to eat for a full English fry up - avoid at your peril as nowhere in Cowes does breakfast like Eegons..! Highly recommend and always visit there for brekkie when on the Island...

If ever you are hungry in the Cowes area, then I can highly recommend Eegons. Not only great value (the best we found in Cowes) but great quality too. Rod and the girls not only supply the best quality of service but they are also highly entertaining and nothing is too much trouble. It's a lovely cafe with plenty of... More

We popped in here for some breakfast during Cowes Week, as it was reassuringly busy but there happened to be a table free. We ordered a range of things involving bacon, eggs, bread and the usual breakfast stuff, and it was all very good and great value too. Helpful staff and a nice buzzy atmosphere.

Always consistant with their food, always welcoming and a good variety of foods especially for breakfasts. It looks a bit basic but its always full with a cross section of people. Good value for money and nothing is not too much trouble for the staff
