My wife and I had breakfast here twice, the first to check it out and the second because we were ablolutely impressed by the omelet choices. The coffee was okay, the service was good, but the food was what made us come back.

We have not had a bad breakfast here in the dozen times we've gone. Last time was omelettes - not fancy, but good food and great prices. Service is always good too.

We love golden egg. Eat here frequently when travelling thru Portsmouth. Eggs are farm fresh, muffins are hearty and tasty. Ditto for pancakes. Nice wait staff and good prices.
