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...

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

Good tea and great pancakes!! Nice atmosphere and friendly staff. The table cloth doubled as a drawing pad which entertained me :)

For place called Egg you'd think they could make a fried egg properly. Unfortunately they don't. Rubbery, bland, and tasted more of stale cooking oil than a lovely free-range egg I was hoping for. Furthermore this 'we only do French press' coffee trend has got to die, on account of it's crap! On another note, the oatmeal was quite nice.... More
