The food reminds me of the Clinton Street Baking Company, but with more reasonable portions and a slightly gentler handling of quality produce and eggs. The prices are perfect and as one of the few restaurants open before 9:00 in the neighborhood on weekends, it is a needed addition. However, the service is slow, slow, slow for no apparent reason with the occasional snooty hipster serving. On a recent Sunday morning, I was one of the three tables with guests yet I still had to remind the waitress to bring my coffee. When I looked back to find her, she was leaning against a back counter, literally zoning out. I also watched at least two groups of potential diners leave as they waited near the front door and no one came to seat them. The management needs to better hire and train their wait staff. The cooks, however, deserve a round of applause.

Oy vey! Williamsburg can actually lay claim to one of the best breakfast places in the City! To love Egg is to eat it. I don't know how they make the same types of ingredients you can get in all the other breakfast places taste so good, but they definitely achieve greatness. I don't even like eggs! But I love Egg's eggs. And sausage. And biscuits... [drooool]

Egg, can't think of a breakfast place I dream of more. They are not a brunch place, at noon they transform into Sparky's, so get there early for all the freshest ingredients. The waitstaff has always been charming and the food delicious- oh that grapefruit half has my mouth watering right now! And the country ham bisquit and...

damn that was a great breakfast! If you go with a part y of 2, you won't wait too long at all. Make sure you write your name/party size on the sheet to your left when you walk in. The omelet with grafton cheddar cheese was amazing! For those former meat eaters, try the biscuits & gravy with mushrooms. I wish I could invest in this place because it would be wildly successful anywhere it opened.

The food at Egg is great southern style breakfast. Everything is yummy and they don't try to over stuff you either and the coffee is great. I've been half a dozen times and the place always has teh same problem- their waitstaff is useless. They alsway seem overwhelmed and can't refill drinks or even take your order half the time. Otherwise they do a great job of using quality products from small producers. Just get a new waitstaff- and have more then one person waiting tables!!

I've been here about 5 times with various people and every time I go, the food is fantastic. The prices are reasonable and the atmosphere is definitely unique. The warehouse interior really has a lot of charm and the music is always good. Unfortunately, nearly every time I have been there the service has been poor. They also seem to run out of ingredients, such as bread or sausage, later in the morning. Between screwed up orders, lack of ingredients, thrown away leftovers after I requested to take them home, and a staff which tends to lack some manners and niceties, I don't eat here anymore. It is a real shame because the food is excellent, so give it a try, maybe you will have more luck than I.

Excellent food, nice staff, been there twice and it was great both times. The atmosphere leaves something to be desired (they share the space with Sparky's hot dog/burger joint), but the food makes up for it.
