We went to Egg restaurant for breakfast on a Saturday. If you don't have a reservation, make sure to be there early, otherwise it gets crowded. They provide you with crayons to get busy while waiting for the food. The breakfast was very good and I would go there again.

Cute locals breakfast and brunch place but gets very crowded on weekends, so suggest going as soon as they open. Loved the pancakes! Really all the food we ordered was very good.

Went there for breakfast with a friend. We didn't had to wait at all and got a table right away. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Sadly they didn't had cappuccinos so we had cold brew coffee and normal coffee. The breakfast was alright. The quality of the food was good. Nothing spectacular and it tasted a bit boring.... More

I visited Egg for the first time with a friend. The staff was extremely courteous and helpful. The menu was eclectic and satisfying. The coffee was odd and left much to be desired. I definitely would return.

My friends and I came here for brunch at 11:30AM. The wait was long, but I think that is pretty standard for this place. But know going in, you will not be seated right away. We ended up waiting about 30 minutes. So I would put your name in and maybe walk around the neighborhood a bit then come back.... More

This place was a delight. We went there twice while on holidays. The staff is super nice. First we came on a Sunday with no reservation, and... we were 10. They managed to get us a table after 30 min. The pancakes are delicious, so are the eggs (which are bought locally) and the biscuits. And this is a vegetarian... More

We didn't have the best start when we were told that they wouldn't split a bill at a table even thought they were 6 of us and they only had whole milk.Grilled grapefruit was tasty but not sliced well so very difficult to eat.

Take in mind some waiting time since it's a super popular place for breakfast and lunch. The waiting was worth it. Nice food, superfriendly staff and great eggs!
