    Though it has grown beyond its beginnings as a wildly popular pop-up breakfast spot, Williamsburg favorite Egg still sees a crowd of people waiting to get inside on weekends. Read more

    Great southern food brunch. Eggs Rothko -- egg in a hole slathered with melted cheese and stewed tomatoes, with candied bacon -- is perfectly coma inducing. Blue bottle is around the corner, too.

    The bright-white space at Egg is an easy choice for breakfast sandwiches, duck hash with eggs over easy, and buttermilk biscuits. Egg is a true brunch, where weekend service is friendly and efficient.

    Ive had a lot of fried oyster sandwiches in my life, this one topped them all. Also, if you're going to get grits, make sure you ask for them extra cheesy and they'll happily oblige. Awesome.

    I love ‘Egg’. Excellent brunch menu,coffee and service. The space has great ambiance and there is a cool vibe there. It’s a perfect way to start your day before doing a tour of Brooklyn Brewery.

    Every item I've tried on the menu is Delish! Make sure you look at the specials bored for some of the most interesting items! And I love how they give you your own French press for coffee.

    I am a breakfasts person and this was the best breakfast I had. Ever. In my life. Biscuits are amazing. Strawberry jam is to die for. Cheddar omlette is perfection. Roasted tomatos are wonderful!

    The food is solid as everyone says it is. They all get pretty much the same thing. Try the scrapple. There aren't many places that serves this delicious type of meat. Do have fun with the crayons!

    You won't get sited if all the members of your company have arrived, even if the shop is half empty. Apart from that, EXCELLENT pancakes, great breakfast, good coffee (aeropress only) until 5 :-)

    Trust this place. Their breakfast are absolutely amazing. Got a very mild omelette with cheese inside plus very delicious tomatoes (how you do that so cool?) and kale extra.

    Awesome brunch, but be prepared to WAIT. Try the Egg Rothkos or the Biscuits & Gravy. Less of a wait for dinner, when you should try the Fried Oyster Sandwich or the Carolina Kale.

    Well this place is purely amazing, the staff is really friendly and will try to make your stay as good as possible. In summer, first check out the view of Manhattan from the pier and then go here!

    Incredible breakfast. No matter what I order it's delicious. They had to move to a larger space because so many people were enjoying their eggs, biscuits and gravy. Def get the French press coffee!

    The last time I was here, OK had the pancakes. The pancakes are delicious. Match that with their sausage patty - which have just the right amount of spice - and you're in for a great breakfast.

    Delicious fluffy omelette with the consistency of a stick of butter left on dashboard in the summer. Hash browns shaped like a potato complete the experience

    Gets the eggs Rothko with pork sausage and if they have the duck bacon egg and cheese sandwich, get that! Amazing hash browns as well.

    Eggs Rothko with a side of greens + a biscuit. Do a good deed and bring recent New York transplants here. Draw a map of the City on the table with provided crayons, with all parks/bridges labelled.

    The best BEC on a biscuit .Excellant ingredients cooked to perfection. A fan! Just go at an odd hour or very long wait . Night big bright space too. Good service once your in the door.

    The Egg Rothko is good, if a tad bit dry. Fix that by ordering the hash browns and a side of tomatoes. Oh, and the biscuits are outta this world.

    Everyone is on point with the Egg Rothkos, but the biscuit was just good. I also liked the candied bacon, in fact...I would def order it again. Overall, I would come back here and try other items.

    I really like the space and had a hard time choosing from all the tasty fresh dishes on the menu. I went with deviled eggs and ham arugula salad which totally hit the spot.

    Duck Sandwich: Thick slices of perfectly pan-seared duck breast on a crusty French baguette that's slathered in duck liver pate. Fresh greens, Colman's mustard & sweet onion jam add a spicy sweetness. Read more

    You'd be a fool to miss the chorizo and eggs! Packed with full flavors yet not too heavy. It comes with fig jam which adds some sweetness nicely

    Not a lot of vegetarian options but whatever we did order, was amazing! They also had a few vegetarian specials that were so flavorful. Ask for biscuits on the side. They melted in my mouth

    Get here early on the weekend and enjoy Eggs Rothko (easy-cooked egg in a slice of Amy’s brioche, topped with Grafton cheddar) and a side of candied bacon!

    Great atmosphere, good brunch. A must-go places in williamsburg. Go before noon if you dont want to wait for 30 mins

    Great place to eat a healthy breakfast all day long or a brunch. Usually crowded so you may have to wait a bit but all egg related dishes are delicious.

    Come on a weekday for Brunch to avoid lines! Good but doesn't live up to hype- got the eggs Rothko and biscuits and gravy. Duck hash on the next table looked better! (Candied bacon is a must!)

    Sooo yummy and reasonably priced too. Don't go starving as there might be a wait but have a cup of coffee outside while chatting with friends. Highly recommended!

    Just go with what all the other tips say: biscuits+gravy and eggs Rothko. also great: candied bacon and pancakes. good but not spectacular: country ham, hash browns.

    Verrrrrry baby friendly doughnuts arrive almost immediately as a free starter. The only issue is dealing with all those "more" chants and gestures. Also, tons of babies at 9am.

    Possibly the best fried chicken in all of New York City, but the biscuits may outshine it. Get the cheese grits in the morning and the mac & cheese in the afternoon. The chef is from Virginia.

    Brave the crowd and try the country ham biscuit. The ham is imported from Princeton, Kentucky and served on a biscuit with house-made fig jam, Grafton cheddar and a side of grits. Read more

    One of the best places to go in Williamsburg for early brunch since they open at 8am. Beat the hipster hangover rush and go before 11.

    Take the Cheese Grits w/ eggs and sausages for a great glutenfree and low fructose breakfast. They need to work on expectation management though, letting us wait for 30min, said it would take only 5.

    Duck hash. Half way through I noticed it was full of chopped celery (which I hate). Perhaps bc it's slightly cooked. If I knew I would have ordered something else. And it was still really good.

    The grits are to die for! The host was nice, the server could've been a little more comfortable lol! But the place is great!

    The Rothko were really good but the gravy w/ biscuits was way too peppery. Fantastic coffee, and one of the best biscuits in NY.

    Waited about 30 mins for our party of 7. French toast was fluffy and yum. Rothko was super cheesy and bready in the best way. Biscuits were crumbly goodness. Grapefruit wasn't as special as I desired.

    Good for breakfast and brunch, this Williamsburg spot is very popular so be prepared to wait. Get the country ham biscuit with a french press coffee, you won't regret it.

    I wish I could wake up here every morning. Specifically, I am in love with their hash browns, which are giant and gourmet McDonalds hash browns.
