Egg River Cafe is a busy, busy eatery. Our meal confirmed why. Delicious food and friendly service. The decor is absolutely 'chicken'. Here der and every where. Fun. Fun. Coffee is so good, we ended buying 2# of whole beans to go.

We love this restaurant and eat here every time we are in town. Everything is always good. Omelettes were delicious, huevos rancheros, perfect… as were the Bennies. We ate there 2 times this trip. Always good.

Found this on the Map apps and decided to try it. Parked and the place was quiet, didn't look like there was many people, forgot this was a little town and a weekday. Was quickly seated by a very friendly waitress. Tried their home made...corn beef hash and eggs, it was amazing. Great taste, eggs were cooked perfectly and it was a very nice portion. Left satisfied and full. Was hoping I wouldn't fall asleep during my drive. A couple near me ordered some pancakes and that looked great too!! Maybe next time. The place has a nice little small town feel, it was really quite nice, quiet, clean and a very friendly feel to it. Tables were getting wiped down, utensils were clean as well. I did talk to a few customers at the job site and they said that this place is usually busy on weekends and during the peak season. Come early, get a seat and just enjoy the ambiance, food and service!!!!More

We read the reviews and were very excited about Egg River cafe. Unfortunately, we had a very average experience for breakfast. The service was almost non existent(had to ask multiple times for items) and the food was nothing special. Maybe we went on an off...day, but we believe there are better options for breakfast in Hood River.More

Given the reviews, I expected a better experience. My omelette lacked the ham I ordered, and the toast was limp, which I had ordered toasted hard. My brother in law's traditional omelette didn't contain the ham that was supposed to be in it. All 3...of us felt the hash browns we not very good. Service was okay, being really busy is not an excuse. When we go back to Hood River, we will not return to this restaurant.More

We looked for breakfast restaurants in Hood River. Went first to Carmen's Kitchen in Bingen, which is very good. But then tried the Egg River Cafe, which is fabulous!

I’ve had breakfast here at least 3 times while in the Hood River Area. They have a whole variety of options for breakfast and everything is home made. They have handicapped parking in front and other parking spaces for the general public, and some additional...parking right across the restaurant. Each time we take new guests, they all say how delicious was their food. If you’re looking for breakfast in the area, this is the place to go!More

Delicious. Love my gluten free french toast!!! My honey's pancakes were super yummy too. Cute inside too. Only a couple parking spots in front of it, but there is more parking across the street.

This is a busy place and the service was average. I would look for a place with less traffic next time. The sign at the door said to wait for seating. That didn't stop the folks behind us who just helped themselves to one of...the last open booths up front. We were seated at a table in the back and the waitress came over after about a 5 minute wait, no greeting, just, "what can I get you?". Our food was delivered fairly quickly and the meal was good. The waitress came back half way through to ask if everything was ok. Just not very friendly. I got the sense that customers aren't a problem so they don't worry about it. This is obviously the busy place in town. Personally, I prefer a place with a bit more charm, but that was our only visit. The menu looks good though. I had the farmer's omelette and my partner had the french toast.More

Great my husband and I have been traveling all day and got hungry and we were looking for a Chinese restaurant, well apparently that one’s no longer open. so we have passed the egg river calf restaurant and when we came back, we stopped here...to eat at a river. We were so glad to eat some food. Their food was amazing. We didn’t know they closed At 2. We walked in at 1:55. They were gracious and kind. They didn’t have any coffe ready because they were closing so the girl made us americanos. Best coffee ever!!!! Thank you to the cook, the waitress and hostess. You made the rest of our trip much better The MacdonaldsMore

We walked right in on Sunday morning at about 9:15. The line started forming right after we got there. The flavors were good, the service was prompt, and the cost was plenty. We think over-easy eggs should not have any runny whites. These did. It...wasn't horrible, just not the way we would have made them. Others may like over-easies that way. The poached eggs on the caprese benedict were cold. That was a bummer, as warm eggs would have warmed up the mozzarella. It was delicious, would have enjoyed it more had it been a warm breakfast.More

A friend and I shared the short rib hash and a fruit parfait. The hash was out of this world, so delicious 😋. The parfait was wonderful. Together we couldn't finish both. Such good food!

As I’m remembering it, I’ll have to say no. I think there was an issue with WiFi when I was there.
