We were looking for a a good place for a late breakfast and Ed's was recommended by the staff at the Chateau Chamonix. They recommended well. The food was good and the service was great.

“Best Restaurant in Town”

We were in Georgetown for a week adn of all the restaurants this one was our favorite. Fresh guacamole, pico and house made veggie burgers were outstanding. The service was very personable and after a week we got to know them all. Highly recommend.

“Best Restaurant in Town”
Reviewed December 17, 2012

We were in Georgetown for a week and of all the restaurants, this one was mine and my husband's favorite. The food was fresh and very, very good. The guacamole, pico, and veggie burgers are all made in house. The service was exceptional and after a week we got to know all the staff. This is where the locals go - according to everyone we asked, and we could tell why after the first visit.

“Only the Service is Good”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

This small business at the end of 6th St isn’t your best choice for food in Georgetown. The service was good, but that’s about the end of the praise. Nothing about the atmosphere would draw you in, and nothing about the food would bring you back. My wife had some average burgers and shoestring fries, some below average soup, and some well below par onion rings. To be fair, we didn’t have the burritos that seemed to pretty popular, but nothing suggests they’d be any better. Most of the food is just prepared frozen items – including the chicken tenders, chicken breasts, and onion rings (that’s not a guess; we saw one of the workers unpacking the items and stocking their freezers). And with all that, the prices aren’t great either. $8 for a burger and fries wasn’t outrageous, but if you want to substitute the forgettable onion rings for fries, the surcharge is $3. An entire order is just $4.75, so the surcharge seems unreasonable. All in all, unless those burritos are pure magic, you’d do well to eat somewhere else.

“Not Friendly”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

I usually only give positive reviews. But in this case I feel obligated to say that the management and staff at this place have an attitude problem. Starts with the way they handle seating. Although connected and staffed by the same people as the coffee shop next door, they don't seem to work together very well. The menu indicates several "rules" and "warnings" that are quite flip and not at all inviting. They bungled the seating list and although they indicated they'd call us on our Cell Phone when our name reached the top, they didn't. And, when we realized we were left behind and pointed it out to the staff, they didn't so much as acknowledge a shortcoming. When our food arrived (it was OK and the price was reasonable) we asked for napkins and silverware as none was provided. For the first time in my life I was told by a waitress that "they didn't have any silverware". Not, "I'll get it as soon as some becomes available", or "it'll be just a few minutes", "the dishwasher is backed up" or "here's the napkins, silverware will come soon". We were told that they didn't have any. Fortunately the server was wrong and some silverware did magically appear a few minutes later. The group at the table next to ours got a kick out that exchange. We watched other tables and the service seemed to be chaotic and unprofesssional. I got the feeling that the management and owners feel they are doing us a favor by letting us eat in their establishment. Perhaps they are. Maybe that's the image they want to portray.
