The owners of this chain made quite an investment on their restaurants - the interiors are well done. However, the high ceilings make for noise. When we ate breakfast one weekday this week we were surprised by the noise level. The food and the service, however, were above average. Don't go when it's crowded unless you don't mind the noise.

We came into Maryland to visit with family and our cousin recommended this restaurant for breakfast. We were a large party of 13 and even though they do not take reservations we were seated within 20 minutes. This was on a Sunday visit and it seemed the norm because people were waiting in their cars. They will text you when... More

I reviewed Eggspectation before. I like to go back and see if there are any changes good or bad. In this case it was good. Went with the Eggspectation omelette, excellent food and service. Sat on the right (literally) of the restaurant and it was quieter. I will go again in the future.

This restaurant is lovely looking and easy to get to off of Snowden River Parkway. The waitstaff was friendly enough and efficient. No wait time on what seemed a busy time 10:30am on a Tuesday. That being said the food was so so. My Eggspectation of my omelet was high until I ate it and then it dropped. I ordered... More

I've been here twice and have not been disappointed. Ordered omelettes and crepes which were both delicious. The place is very cozy with a fun interior. Menu has a wide variety of choices. Family friendly.

Lots & lots of options, good quality and well made food. Centrally located and close to Rt 95 so makes morning casual meetings more accessible. It is however noisy if you are meeting and need to discuss business and a bit on the pricey side for breakfast. That said, you do get what you pay for.

I ALWAYS take everyone I pick up from BWI to this place. Every meal has been perfect. I just LOVE the restaurant, the food, the service. When my daughter and her husband were here they even let us bring the dog out in the patio area. Amazing cakes and pastries too. Get there early, the line forms quick. Even with... More

This restaurant is consistently good for breakfast. I know they serve meals all day but they are clearly a good choice for breakfast. They offer a wide variety of preparations for eggs including omelettes, Benedicts, and specialty creations as well as waffles, biscuits and gravy. The service is generally good.

I enjoy the breakfast so much but I do think items are over priced and small portions. When played come out I felt as though a wanna be foodie would have much to say great food but not earth shattering nice atmosphere take down a couple of bucks and odd say five stars otherwise atmosphere is sweet and sweetly a...
