For place called Egg you'd think they could make a fried egg properly. Unfortunately they don't. Rubbery, bland, and tasted more of stale cooking oil than a lovely free-range egg I was hoping for. Furthermore this 'we only do French press' coffee trend has got to die, on account of it's crap! On another note, the oatmeal was quite nice. On another another note, the staff thought they were so cool they almost couldn't stand up. Two stars.

Nice atmosphere, quality ingredients. Food wasn't that great. They were getting ready to close so maybe that was the reason.

If you like an egg themed menu, egg is for you. Lovely staff and delicious food both visits. Appears to be filled with a large amount of locals which says a lot - writing this makes me hungry!

Whether you want oatmeal or a burger or an omelette, this is the place! Great energy. Perfect lighting and just a nice place to enjoy some good food. The steel cut oats were delicious. Same with the burger - perfect crispy French fries too. There's a family style table in the middle that will seat a party of 14.
Daily specials are on the board. Staff was friendly and attentive. I look forward to eating here again.

We went to Egg twice on our visit to New York, the first time following a recommendation from a friend and the second because we enjoyed our first visit so much!

The breakfast/brunch menu is fantastic and is worth the journey over to Brooklyn for if you are staying in the Manhattan area. The food is absolutely delicious and really you get a good portion too! My recommendation of choice would be the Biscuits and Gravy, plus their hash browns are the best I have ever had. If you go on a weekend morning, you may have a little bit of a wait depending on your arrival time, it is worth sticking out for. We also went back on a weekday morning and were seated straight away.
