Friendly helpful staff, comfortable restaurant, ample parking, no wait for lunch during the week. House salad has fresh greens, onion, cherry tomatoes. Great ranch dressing. I had the mushroom pasta carbonara with edamame and it was delicious. Portion was large enough for me to take...More

Enjoyed our late breakfast, despite the 1.5 hour Father's Day crowd. Menu was varied and interesting with obvious focus on eggs. Food nicely prepared and plated. Very tasty! Service was attentive and courteous.

My partner and I were passing through at mid-afternoon on a recent weekday, purposely trying to get AWAY from the DC Beltway before breaking for a late lunch. We happened to notice Eggspectation while headed for Subway in the same shopping center, and wondered whether...More

It is our tradition to have family lunch on the way home from church. This morning's choice was Eggspectation and it was great. The service was prompt and friendly. The food was plentiful and delicious. We'll be back.

I remember thinking how great an addition this was to the community when it opened. The early feedback/lessons just never seemed to get corrected. Start with the price...WAY too much unless the portions, quality and service match. They want to come off as chic but,...More

We have eaten breakfast here a few times. Always predictably good. They have a very wide menu selection. However, service is slow. All in all, I recommend.

Sailed in for Saturday brunch with my wife, arrived about 10 and were pleasantly greeted and seated. And our visit went straight to annoying from there. Clearly, they were not short staffed, little knots of employees standing around chatting, servers scurrying hither and yon, but...More

I drove a little over an hour to visit Eggspectation, but would not make the drive again for this particular restaurant. I order the Chesapeake Benedict -- it was good, but there was very little crab meat and the dish was barely warm when I...More
