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!

BEST HOLLANDAISE SAUCE ANYWHERE. I was here four years ago and the hollandaise is as good as I remember!!! It's crowded with good reason. Excellent service good sized portions biscuits and gravy is huge (husband had farmers omelet and will have a second meal of...this). We'll be back.More

Busy bustling place. Quick service. Eggs Benedict were delicious. My husband got the Huevos rancheros which he said was delicious. I got a waffle the next day and it was soft and delicious. Second day we unfortunately sat near the bathroom. Lots of noise and...traffic. But go there. It’s great.More

Server Maria was hard to find, basically disappeared, and other staff had to be flagged down to get our complete order. To be fair, the food was good. Tip was low to reflect the service. Management felt empowered to change the tip amount for some...reason to a generous amount. WILL NEVER BE BACK.More

I've travelled all of this nation, and this little cafe is one of the best I've been in over the years. Great food, grea atmosphere and a fabulous staff.

Plenty off staff, but couldn't get anyone to take our order even after asking. They were not busy at that time.

Very hungry driving into Hood River from the Interstate we saw this charming little restaurant. The food was outstanding, and the staff was great. We were so lucky we stumbled on Egg River.

Solid breakfast place on a busy street. Friendly wait staff (working really hard despite being short handed). Good sized menu with lots of traditional breakfast options. Tasty, generous portions without too long a wait.

Very enjoyable. Good selection and fun atmosphere with upbeat 80s easy listening music playing. There were a few forgotten items with our order which were no big deal, they brought them out when we asked. Coffee is good, served in big cups. Egg dishes were...good (I got a veggie scramble with home fries, husband got a 2 egg breakfast with hash browns. I recommend the hash browns.) We ordered an Apple pancake as a bonus item. It was good but needed more cinnamon.More

Unlike Bette’s Place, a similar type of restaurant bearing the #1 rating on this site, this place figured out how to fill a brunch restaurant without making us feel unsafe. They provided shielding, they put in a mongo filtration system that removes pathogens from the...air, and they didn’t have us sitting on top of each other. So we stated, and the food was top rate and mildly too much, as is typical of egg places. The veggie scramble was delicious, the toast perfectly done, the Benedict had perfect (not gloppy) hollandaise, and all in all we had not one bad thing to say about the experience.More

We really enjoyed our breakfast this morning - it was quick after we ordered and very big portions. We ordered a variety of things from skillets to French toast to eggs/bacon, to oatmeal. Everyone really enjoyed it. Drinks were filled quickly and the service was...excellent!More

We chose to go here for breakfast during our stay in town based on the 4.5 stars. While waiting to be seated, I felt the place isn’t that clean. The waiter preparing the table took a cloth that was cleaned dirty water inside a bucket...and wiped our table. When We were seated, we had to disinfect the table ourselves using hand sanitizer and tissues. The waiters are not in uniform except the manager and one of them his hair is very long and didn’t bother putting net since he is dealing wit people’s food. Since we waited, I decide we give this place a chance and try their food. My husband ordered a veggie feta cheese omelet that came out watery and only some feta sprinkled on top. He returned it and end up eating peanut with a toast. I ordered a mushroom / Swiss cheese omelet and chocolate pancakes, they were bellow average that we left most of it. For a place specialized in making eggs, they don’t know how to make omlets. Our Americanos ( $ 4.50 each) were so bad that a drip coffee with good beans would have been better. They took out the price of the omelette we returned from our bill, but still I believe this place is way over rated, the food is not worth the prices they charge and I have a big concern about cleanliness. It was a waist of money and time since we had to go look for coffee somewhere else and snacks.More

Had breakfast at this really good little restaurant while in Hood River. Excellent service, great food, very well prepared and good portions. Only issue was extremely noisy inside, couldn’t wait to get back outside.

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