We grabbed breakfast here with friends we were visiting, we were seated promptly and service was good. The menu has lots of options. The portions are very good, all the food seemed really fresh and prepared as ordered. I had the fresh start - eggs, canadian bacon, toast - everything was great. Friends had pancakes and french toast which looked... More

The food is very good and there is a wide variety of breakfast choices. I found Eggspectations to be a great place for brunch. Get there early on the weekends because it gets very crowded and waits are up to an hour. The have a great Happy Hour, one of the best around. The staff is friendly, but sometimes slow.

Early morning, a slight chill in the air, we're on motorcycles and a bit chilly. We are seated in front the fireplace and quickly served out drinks, coffee, cappuccino, etc.. Size and taste of my latte is perfect! A full menu of breakfast options proved to be truly fulfilling from the muffins to the variety of breakfast meals. Really good... More

Good food, large portions. Abundant bar stock with large selection of beer on tap. Service can be spotty at times in the bar. Overall a good cafe/bar.

Had friends visiting from Germany and went there a few times within a month! Also went for brunch and had a wonderful experience. The happy hour is much longer than other restaurants around and is every day!

Ate breakfast on Sunday morning. We were seated immediately. The food and the coffee drinks were amazing. Everything ordered was delicious. It was a very generous portion. I would definitely return. A little pricey, but worth it.

We stopped in for breakfast on a Wednesday morning. Staff was friendly & helpful. Waiter seemed a little frazzled as a server but was nice. Food was fresh, hot and well prepared. Iced tea was strong & fresh. We had an omelet and a frittata ... both were good. The menu had lots of offerings and was a good read... More

We have been here quite a few times before and it has been decent, but today was awful. Came on a Tuesday evening bc the groupon I purchased was about to expire. It was pretty much empty, maybe two other tables. There was no reason why it should have taken close to 30 minutes for our meal. The food was... More

Friendly helpful staff, comfortable restaurant, ample parking, no wait for lunch during the week. House salad has fresh greens, onion, cherry tomatoes. Great ranch dressing. I had the mushroom pasta carbonara with edamame and it was delicious. Portion was large enough for me to take home half for lunch tomorrow. Very flavorful. Husband had a burger - cooked the way...

Enjoyed our late breakfast, despite the 1.5 hour Father's Day crowd. Menu was varied and interesting with obvious focus on eggs. Food nicely prepared and plated. Very tasty! Service was attentive and courteous.
