I ordered the Huevos Rancheros; they had received good reviews from prior diners. Mine, unfortunately, were not very good, in fact, I gave a friend eating with me most of my plate. The black beans were lukewarm and a bit tough. One egg was perfect, the other was cooked through. May try it another time, and choose a different item.

I really wanted to like this place because it is so close to my house. There was a line for a table both times we went and the food was really priced, pretty greasy, overall badly prepared, and expensive for what you get. I had the French toast the first time which was terribly disappointing. Second time I thought I... More

This is the second time we went, for lunch last Thursday, and we were very happy - again. Our son and daughter-in-law go with their children all the time. My omelet was exactly as I ordered, as was my son's hash. My wife's two eggs came exquisitely the way she wanted them. Also, to answer one of the questions below,... More

This place is bad food from the 1930s. Eggs come with one little slice of bad bread. Eggs are tough and have a plastic taste. The menu is boring and the service mediocre.

I LOVE coming to Montclair Egg Shop! Not only is it just an adorable place, but the food is incredible. The waffles or pest crepes are my go-to orders!

I have not been to this place so I wouldn't have to wait, and we've been there almost half dozen times. Montclair Egg Shop serves great breakfast, the best items on the menu being the Mexican-style dishes. The portions are big and almost all come with potatos and toast.

Awesome breakfast! Had brunch and ordered Huevos Rancheros (pardon my spelling) which was scrambled eggs with cheese and a side of potatoes and pico de gallo. Portions are fair sized - not oversized like other places. Sourdough toast was on piece cut in half - other places serve 2 pieces. Homemade orange jam/jelly on table was yummy. The service was...

Stopped here for a quick breakfast on our way to Redwood Regional Park. French toast was great! Not a huge menu but everyone was able to find something - they even offered a cheese quesadilla for my non-breakfast eating 7 year old. Nice atmosphere.

We stopped for a decent breakfast to kick off our road trip to Newport Beach. The wait wasn't too bad for a Saturday morning. The service was terrific! I enjoyed the large mugs to go with the generous portions. Yummy home style potatoes. It has decent breakfast fare and a nice place to meet someone and catch up.

Visited family in Oakland and our host took us there for breakfast. Food and experience were so good that we returned days later ourselves. Menu was quite varied and food was served hot and fresh. Service was excellent. No issues at all with seating and prices seemed reasonable for California. Will go back again if we have the opportunity. On... More
