While visiting my daughter in Brooklyn and enjoying the sites of the city, we went to one of her favorite places, Williamsburg. We went to eat brunch and a nice little restaurant, called "egg". They had delicious food and great services. I live in the south so it was quite a treat to have "grits" in NYC. We shared pancakes,... More

This Rothko breakfast inspired me to create many more egg variations in my home as well. Travel here to enjoy delicious breakfast in New York.

Everything was delicious. The eggs, the roasted tomatoes, the bread and the butter! Simple, clean food! It's just that easy. Worth the wait. Coffee was pretty amazing too!

I loved Egg. We got a table right away, and the atmosphere was calm and quiet. I was pleased to read that their menu items come from locals, and humanely raised animals. Overall, the food was yummy!

Worth the wait. The eggs and chorizo were delicious. Huge portions, great coffee and friendly service. They had a special that I wanted to try, but was too timid ...fried pigs tail. Next time.

Nice fun place to eat. Great service. The place has moved. So if you buy the latest New York lonely planet book. Then it's printed wrong...

We had most delicious pancakes and oatmeal. Their home made blackberry lemonade was absolutely awesome. Great service and wonderful athmosphere. Greatly recommended!

Clean crisp atmosphere, comfortable noise level with background music. French toast, caramelized grapefruit with mint, hen eggs, bacon and ultra thin pancakes. Everything was good.

Service was excellent. We had the Biscuit and ham with fig jam + egg and also the pancakes. The pancakes were typical, but the biscuit was outstanding!!! Definitely worth the $2 for the upgrade to cheese grits.

It was a line of waiting people for brunch/lunch, so it seems to be a popular place. We got a table rather quick anyway, and ordering went well. The place was not very charming, almost McDonald´s feeling. It took long time before our food arrived, and when we then asked for more to drink, that took almost until we were... More
