Great place for a hearty breakfast. Love the home made toast and took a slice of coconut cake for later.

The menu was classic breakfast...and the... More

This place could use a lot of help! Cleaning would be a great start! Uniforms would be cool to make it look professional. And these prices what the heck pricey! Skip the golden egg!

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.

Came across this spot as I took a drive. So busy the cars lined the street at 10am. Took a spot at the counter and was met by a hard working friendly staff and patrons. Great, diverse selection. Worth a stop!
