I've eaten at eggspectation quite a few times and have always enjoyed my visits and food. There was one occurrence where I had a stale muffin but otherwise pleasant visits with good service. I've tried the crab crepe, French toast, and pagé waffles. Something i love about the restaurant is that they serve a variety of fresh and natural juices.

Don't know what has happened to this restaurant--we raved the last time we ate there, but our latest trip was a disaster. Service was terrible--we went on a week day, not crowded at all for dinner. Personnel were nice enough, but inattentive. We never got the drinks we ordered, and the server never came back to refill water or check... More

I have been here several times and every so often this also runs on Groupon (just a tip). I usually get the crab egg Benedict which is my fave from the menu. The prices are ok and the French toast used to be delicious but the last 3x we've had it, its not so good. I think this is a... More

This place has amazing selections and tastes. I love breakfast and this is my kind of place. They have all the classics and then some - with cute names for everything - Uneggspected, and the Southwest Sunrise. Plus, they have really nice home fries - potatoes Lyonnaisse. This is a one stop breakfast shop.

I could eat breakfast every meal of the day. The menu is expansive to say the least but whether I do breakfast or dinner items, I'm never disappointed!

Sadly we couldn't eat in but would love to go back and eat in. I wanted something different so I ordered the California eggs Benedict. My only complaint was the sockeye salmon was a bit too salty for me. With take out they put the hollandaise on the side which was perfect. Ur was interesting to see the eggs served... More

Plenty of choices--helps to check the online menu before you go so you will know what you want. Service was good and food was hot and tasty. We enjoyed the Chesapeake benedict with crab meat and the Bayou benedict with chicken, shrimp and chorizo on polenta--very large portion! Potatoes are delicious too. Can't wait to visit again.

i recently visit eggspectation during a recent family funeral, a street person recommended the restaurant. My sister(philly) and cousins from (det) were impressed with the decor and customer service. The food presentation was great. The french toast w/eggs, bacon was delicious and plentiful.

If you love eggs then the name says it all. I usually get the eggs Benedict and it is always good. The bar is pretty happening during happy hour and if you wanted to dine in, the wait time is not very long. The longest I have waited during the busy time: 20 minutes. Also, a great place to play,...
