This place is great. Sure it gets packed, but that is because the food is great. Service is fast and friendly and the owner is very nice. You want a great fresh breakfast, go to EGGSHELLS.

Been here a few times because my daughter likes it. From an adult perspective it's average at best. Food is good portions, but nothing outstanding from a taste or uniqueness POV. Service, when they do get to your table, is fair. For having 10 tables...More
