Good food , great atmosphere , I could eat here all 3 meals including a great happy hour. Been coming here for years . The menu itself is a little tired and could use an update but overall I will be back.

I know most people might think of this place as a breakfast restaurant but there is a nice happy hour in the bar area at this restaurant. There are lots of food choices to choose from as well as specials on beer and wine.

Calling Eggspectation an "upscale diner" may sound strange, but it's truly the highest complement I can pay to one of my local favorites for breakfast and brunch. Eggs are the star here as the name would imply, and the menu reflect that with tons and...More
