“Best Breakfast I've Ever Had”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

Great food!!!!!!!!! I cannot say enough about how amazing the food is here! I feel bad that the bridge is out so it is a little hard to navigate now but the food is so amazing I wish I lived closer so I could make it a regular weekly visit! But ifyou are deciding where to go for breakfast, there is no question, The Golden Egg is the BEST!

“So delicious, generous portions”
Reviewed 17 April 2014

We stayed at the Wentworth Hotel and Spa, which is just down the road from the Golden Egg. Our breakfasts were delicious, the service was prompt and friendly and I would highly recommend.

“Looks like local hideout for breakfast and lunch”
Reviewed 10 March 2014

This is obviously the place where locals go to catch breakfast and lunch. I went there for lunch with my friend, but if I were to eat breakfast at a good and reasonably priced place, this would be it. You can tell this is a long history family place. For lunch I had the Reuben which was OK. It came with potato chips. To be honest, I prefer a small salad choice over chips these days. I asked if they had a milk shake, they did not. I also asked if they made vanilla egg creams, but this not being a NY deli, I was not surprised that they had no clue. My friend had the salad with tuna fish that was good. The service is fast and friendly. Fun hidden location just by the closed bridge.
