I have not been to this place so I wouldn't have to wait, and we've been there almost half dozen times. Montclair Egg Shop serves great breakfast, the best items on the menu being the Mexican-style dishes. The portions are big and almost all come with potatos and toast.

Awesome breakfast! Had brunch and ordered Huevos Rancheros (pardon my spelling) which was scrambled eggs with cheese and a side of potatoes and pico de gallo. Portions are fair sized - not oversized like other places. Sourdough toast was on piece cut in half - other places serve 2 pieces. Homemade orange jam/jelly on table was yummy. The service was...

Stopped here for a quick breakfast on our way to Redwood Regional Park. French toast was great! Not a huge menu but everyone was able to find something - they even offered a cheese quesadilla for my non-breakfast eating 7 year old. Nice atmosphere.

We stopped for a decent breakfast to kick off our road trip to Newport Beach. The wait wasn't too bad for a Saturday morning. The service was terrific! I enjoyed the large mugs to go with the generous portions. Yummy home style potatoes. It has decent breakfast fare and a nice place to meet someone and catch up.

Visited family in Oakland and our host took us there for breakfast. Food and experience were so good that we returned days later ourselves. Menu was quite varied and food was served hot and fresh. Service was excellent. No issues at all with seating and prices seemed reasonable for California. Will go back again if we have the opportunity. On... More

The food is solid breakfast fare but is a bit pricey for the quality. The room us small and you feel a bit cramped, especially when seated around the stairs. But a good place to catch breakfast in the village.

I visited the Montclair Egg Shop for breakfast right after getting into town, after a very early flight. The food was excellent. The variety of omelets was impressive. The pancakes were really good too. The service was ok, but it is easy to see why... The place was full (on a Friday at 10 am!)

Now living in the Raleigh NC area and are wishing that we could find a place like the Montclair Egg Shop. I don't think it 's going to happen. We've tried :(.

Our family had ages from 5-90 and we were all pleased with our meals. Fluffy waffles, savory smoked salmon, eggs cooked to order (amazing soft scramble Yummy), jam tasted like it was from from my grandmothers pantry. Next time we will try the crepes. Worth the hunt for a parking spot on a Sunday morning.
