came because of the hype. totally let down. service, subpar; the bus boys attended us more. food, not good; burned chorize and egg sandwich. side salad was more like they just threw a few greens to fill up the plate. the cornbread tasted like a stick of butter with more of a biscuit consistency. wouldve given food 1 star but the coffee was really good. overpriced! i basically paid 40$ to feel terrible the next few hours.

No frills. Ugly caffeteria setting. Food is mediocre but looks decent. And seriously, I mean, in an area FULL of places to brunch & breaky, you'll find that the only reason you've ended up at Egg, is because some follower of a moron said you should try it. Take it from a native New Yorker, hicksters don't know much except that an egg comes from a chicken and chickens are from farms and that's where mommy & daddy live. Williamsburg will soon be Wisconsinburg. This city has been done to death, to the point of regurgitating numbness. Everything is everything. Be original - use your own mind.

My cousin told me to try this restaurant. Ingredients are mostly organic and healthy. I am not sure about that since i can't tell the difference between organic and inorganic foods. but taste is poor. Most choices on the menu are fried, pretty much like eating in the south. Expensive and many other choices for that price. don't even try it. Decor sucks, like eating in a warehouse.

Because the food is actually very good. There's a reason they've been in business for 20 something years. Atmosphere is not great, although better than alot of Chinese restaurants in the area. I'd recommend take out. I used to live just around the corner from Chinese Musician and picked up from there all the time and got a chance to get to know the phone lady. She's actually nice once you get past the way she is on the phone. I've since moved but still phone in my orders for delivery. I always get the Combo Deals. (I love the BBQ spare ribs) Anyways there's no better value chinese takeout/delivery in the area.

Went there on a weekday at midday so the wait wasnt too bad. only about 20 minutes for a table. its a cute little place, but I have to agree with the other reviewerss that the service was not that great. had to ask for napkins, ketchup and other things twice. luckily they put a jug of water on your table so thats not an issue. the food was good i got the eggs rothko and they were delicious. everything tasted fresh and the candied bacon was exactly as it sounded. if i lived nearby i would make this one of my regular places but if you're coming from a distance I would give this place a shot. I was happy i tried it but i dont feel like i will be going back anytime soon. there too many other good places to try in brooklyn and while this place was good it wasnt mind blowing.

I drive in from the UES of Manhattan to come here every weekend. It really is delicious and high quality food. The coffee is great too! I love the individual french press! Service is not always friendly. Most of the hostesses and waitresses are ok but there is 1 or 2 that shouldn't be allowed to be waitresses. I think this is such a shame. I love this place but to get a snotty waitress here just seems ridiculous. The food and the vibe say "made with love". The service sometimes seems to say "I really wish you weren't here". I would prefer if you pretend to care when you take my order. Is that too much to ask?
