A nice little diner. They gave generous portions and our breakfasts were all tasty - especially the Huevos special. Even the coffee was good.

Great American breakfast in a proper American Diner. Extensive menu choice for breakfast and good friendly service with regular coffee refills. Was very busy and portions generous. The only complaint was that the smoked salmon with the scrambled eggs was super salty.

We have been to Esau's twice for breakfast. Both times the food was outstanding, both times the service was just so so. EXCEPT for the the bus boys who provide drinks and additional service besides food - they were great!

Over priced breakfast/ lunch dive. What else can I say. Eggs came out under cooked. Potatoes were bad. I would not recommend to anyone
