If you want to be blown away while having breakfast at one of the Best restaurants around, set your GPS for this place. As a result of being one of the Best, Eggspectation is usually quite busy. So, come early.

We've enjoyed coming here for special breakfasts for some years now. The food is always good, especially the potatoes. Recently we had an excellent waiter, Patrick. Just wanted to appreciate him, as sometimes the service can make or break a good meal. He did an...More

I have eaten at Eggspectations in Ellicott City multiple times, but only in the private back room. I was there for presentations by doctors regarding certain specialty drugs at various times (breakfast, lunch, dinner). The food is reliably good, and the service is good, too....More
