Restaurant reviews are a regular feature of The Issaquah Press. Reviewers visit restaurants unannounced and pay in full for their meals.
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.
