The restaurant is attractive and family oriented. The few times I have eaten there the food was good but the prices are excessive for the product type, quality and quantity. There also seemed to be a LOT of children when I was there but it was always weekend lunches so maybe an evening meal would be a little less distracting... More

I had brunch with my two daughters and son in law today at Eggspectation in Gainesville, Virginia today, and our meals and dining experience were awesome! Everyone said their meal was great...three of us had meals with eggs, breakfast meats and potatoes...my youngest daughter had a burger and fries. You can have breakfast all day here. Our server was nice... More

Eggspectation is an excellent breakfast and lunch option. Menu is extensive, food quality is high, seating options are good and the service is always excellent. Coffee options are extensive (and delicious) and the restaurant is quite accommodating to requests, including even providing hot milk along side your crafted coffee! Highly recommend this restaurant for a delightful breakfast out.

We had an amazing server, but sitting down to a dirty table and seat and receiving a piece of fruit that looks bit into takes away from the charm of Eggspectations. I have noticed a decline in the establishment. The food tasted much better than last time I went, which was in December 2016. But I had to take photos... More

We met friends who live about 20 minutes away from my sister and they suggested it. It is not a diner and it doesn't serve diner food. Everything was hot. They have a nice menumber and our server was very accomodating. I would return.

Maybe folks were on vacation...the whole experience wasn't like usual. My potatoes were extremely salty. I thought it was me. Our guests said the same thing. I think someone accidentally double seasoned. The week before was the norm...but I have to be honest...it almost seemed like everything was made in advance and reheated. The Sunshine omelette seemed smaller and didn't... More

This restaurant is one of a chain (we've been in Phoenix), but our first time here. We visited early Christmas Eve morning and the breakfast and wait staff were well above average. You feel like you are in an establishment that is several notches above the ubiquitous breakfast eateries like Bob Evans', IHOP, etc. - Eggspectation is a 'class' place... More

Took a little while to get seated but that is usually a good sign. Got seated and server got our drinks and it went down from there. Did not see our server much after that. Had a hard time getting coffee refills and other things we had requested. She seemed overwhelmed and in the weeds. We had to ask for... More
