I really enjoyed the Chorizo Skillet with corn tortillas on the side...the staff was also friendly and attentive. This place offers a relaxing atmosphere with a challenging variety of menu items to choose from.

It definitely is not your typical place. For starters, it used to be a small house which they artfully converted into an eatery. This place is only open until 2 o'clock on the day that we stopped by (weekday). I was ready to order a regular 3-egg breakfast, yum! when I spotted a chilaquiles breakfast (Mexican typical breakfast plate consisting... More

Only open for breakfast and lunch, this is one of the better places in town to eat. Expect to wait on the weekends. All of the egg dishes are very good.

My family and I had breakfast here a couple of weeks ago. The food was very good, the atmosphere friendly, and the staff very hospitable. We ate in the patio, as we had our dog with us.

Really cute cafe that looks like a little home.It's pretty small and the menu isn't extensive but my pancakes (7 multi grain) were amazing! I used the real maple syrup that they have too so make sure you ask for that if you like real maple syrup. My husband got the waffles and my kids did also with eggs. Price... More

Nothing to write home about. All ingredients looked to have been bought from a restaurant food vendor (e.g. Smart & Final quality). Food wasn't locally sourced whatsoever. For small place with medium-priced food, I expect much better. We might as well have gone to Denny's.

Ordered the power slaw salad with kale (there was no slaw an no kale - oh wait there was a rotten baby kale leaf) - horrible! The greens from the salad were rotten beyond belief, the waitress was very compassionate and credit the bill, but it came with chicken (I planned on giving it to my dog) so they charged... More

What a bonus to have this very excellent restaurant right down the way from Pete's. When there's that long line, there's no wait here and everything was top-notch! Chilaquiles, the skillet scramble, and huevos rancheros were all so good - hard to imagine waiting so long for a table at Pete's when you can eat here. Service was very good... More

The Golden Egg restaurant was always a place I have overlooked, but after having gone to the Golden Egg on a school field trip/getaway, I realize that this restaurant has great service. The staff managed to serve about 40 teenagers at once surprisingly quickly, and even though the food wasn't great (a little cold), it was till a fun outing... More
