The Egg Shell was an easy walk from our hotel. I loved the recycled coffee mugs (mine was from Branson, Missouri), the different and possibly vintage salt and pepper shakers, and the small paint cans which held the napkins and silverware. The menu offers several traditional breakfast items, but with a twist. I don't usually eat tater tots, theirs were... More

We met our cousins here that we hadn't seen for a number of years after reading the reviews and the reviews didn't do the place justice. It was wonderful ! From the immense menu selection, to the quality of food, quantity, service, location, they have it all. Coffee was great, adult beverages too. We had a selection at the table... More

trip advisor needs to update the address for this place, they are now at 950 17th St Denver, CO 80202, cross road Curtis. Great little place for breakfast. Especially if you like tatter tots - which I'm not crazy about them, but the point on that is moot. The eggs and veggies are super fresh. Good coffee. Friendly attentive service.

We asked someone on the street to suggest a restaurant for breakfast. She was trying to send us to a crepe place, but we didn't find it and ended up at the Egg Shell. We chose to eat outside, which had a really nice vibe to it. (I think they are moving) Ironically two of my friends had the Swedish... More

While visiting family in Denver I had the opportunity to eat here twice. The truffle mac and cheese was divine! The salads are fresh and the red trout crusted with crab special was simply scrumptious! ! A definite must do in Denver.

We visited the Egg Shell for the first time, after reading reviews on line. So glad we did. It's a charmy space, with lots of homey places to eat and a cozy decor. Brightened up the rainy morning right away. The service we friendly, attentive, efficient. The food was really good: all the basic options that a good American breakfast... More
