Eggs has the best breakfast in town. The restaurant is small so expect some waiting but it is worth it. The employees are Great! Food is outstanding. The omelettes are all Good! They only take cash or check so go prepared.

Undercooked. Skillet was a gross mess. Undercooked onions are the worst. Big heavy to ho skillets but were not tasty, scrambled eggs undercooked. But woest was almost raw chunks of onion. No.

When my friends come in from out of town I always take them to Eggs in Paradise! You can order traditional breakfast options and amazing vegetarian options as well! Lunch and dinner are available as well, but I haven’t moved past the amazing breakfast!

This is the place for a fast, friendly, filling breakfast. The waitresses are all awesome. Just a great restaurant. Bring cash, they do not take cards.

The food here is AMAZING! The Bear Skillet is absolutely delicious, and their pancakes melt in your mouth! This place is more suitable for breakfast and brunch, but they do also have dinner entrees as well. Definitely recommend it!

When I first moved into the area. I saw this place across the street from where I lived. I wanted to try it out so at first, I didn't expect that it was cash only. But I'm not complaining on that. The nice thing I...More
