If you are looking for anything particularly egg-ceptional from The Egg & Us on Gilman Boulevard, you will probably be content. With selections like an “ultimate” egg frittata and a California burrito, there are many options to satisfy your palate. That being said, the brunch-oriented restaurant — no worries, it isn’t all eggs, all the time — is not far from other breakfast joints when it comes to quality and taste.
The Swedish pancakes, scrambled eggs and bacon were satisfactory. The cake was light and sweet with cream and lingonberries, a great complement to my crisp bacon. The other dishes that came out of the kitchen were appealing with tasteful piles of whipped cream or fruit. It’s not all breakfast fare; the menu has sandwiches, burgers and salads for those who want lunch.
Prices for the ample meal were between $6.95 and $11.95, so your pocketbook will not have to stretch too far.
With the cozy setting and neutral atmosphere of green and yellow, you could have been in a friend’s home. Service at the restaurant was friendly and inviting with frequent check-ins and smiles.
At 10 a.m. on a weekday, seating was immediate. Children’s artwork decorated the wall, and a cup of crayons was readily available at each table for future artists.
The Egg & Us is a place to which you can return. Groups of four or less will find comfortable seating to accommodate outings. The food is filling and scrumptious, and can take care of any breakfast cravings you might have. It is not mind-blowing, but it is a good breakfast nonetheless.
