Great Eggspectations!

Eggspectation

After an early morning photo shoot, we decided to try out one of the more famous breakfast restaurants – Eggspectation located in Eaton centre.

They have a long menu with a lot of choices. It took me quite a bit time to finally come up with my pick: Breton Benedict – Two eggs poached, two crêpes, ham, gruyere cheese with our classic hollandaise sauce.

and their signature dish Eggspectation – Three egg omelette, with mushrooms, onions, green and red peppers, bacon, sausage, ham… served with grilled potatoes and chef’s fruit garnish.

The Egaabenedict was the best part and it was a prefect marriage with the egg, crêpes, ham and the sauce. The omelette wasn’t as good as we expected specially it is supposed to their signature dish. It lacks the well fix of flavors. The skin of fruit garnish served was very dry. It seems the fruit has been pre-cut for a while. Overall, the food was ok.

Price: $9 – $15 per dish
Address: 220 Yonge St. (Corner Shuter)

  1. This place is overrated with food being okay at best and the prices really reflecting their prime location for tourists.

    Your photos really make the food look better than it tastes 😛

  3. yea.. not the best breakfast place to be honest.. especially as a chain store. i’d say cora’s is better.

  4. I think Cora’s is a bit overrated too but they have more fruit per dish than Eggspection.

    I heard good things about Bar One too.

  6. Eggspectation is overrated. The price definately does NOT reflect the quality of the food. FRANS (across from Eggspectation) have better breakfasts for a very good price. You guys should check that out when you have a chance 🙂

    • Hmmmm…Good idea…You’re not the first one to mention Fran’s to us.

      It’s supposed to be the same as the Fran’s on College but we haven’t tried the one under the Pantages Hotel yet.

      Thanks!
