Editorial review from Citysearch 7/2/2013

Fun place to go. The wait was kind of long but everywhere is on the weekends for breakfast. I waas disappointed with my food but it was my fault, instead of ordering something already created I decided to build my own breakfast burrito and it was not good. Next time I will choose something they have prepared. more

WOW 7/3/2011

I have always come back to this cute little neighborhood restaurant time and time again and they never disappoint. The owner who does it all (host, serves, and busses tables) still manages to find time to walk and talk to every table in the building giving each dine in experience a personal touch. The rest of the staff is also very friendly and I must give a small shout out to our waiter who not only kept my coffee cup full the entire time we were there but was pretty darn cute too. We did have to wait about 20 minutes for our food but it was well worth the wait. I ordered the eggs ""Benny"" (Benedict) and i have never tasted such a savory Hollandaise sauce. It just so happened to be the girlfriends birthday that i was with and just with one mention of that around our server we were given complimentary Cheese Blintz which were incredible and the presentation of them was stunning, almost made me not want to eat it! But one bite in and those crepes did not stand a chance. Eggs in the City is a must for those seeking a nice brunch and great service! more

Just don't be late...or else. 6/12/2011

Called at 1:15 on a Sunday afternoon and inquired about the hours. I was told, ""We seat our last table at 1:50."" Fine. My wife and I arrive at 1:45 and are given the WORST ATTITUDE ever! Our waitress (a disgusting trailer trash-type woman who's muffin top/miniskirt combo left too little to the imagination) said to us, ""Well I THOUGHT we were closed, but I GUESS [emphasis added] I was wrong,"" and stomped off. When she came back she said we had ""one minute"" to look at our menu's and then would HAVE to order. She came back a minute later, took our order and that was the last we saw of her. Even though the amigos made a wicked good burrito, it'll be a cold day in hell before we go back. more

A delicious, fun experience 1/23/2011

We have been to Eggs in the City many times, and every time we go, we're absolutely blown away by the food (try the huevos rancheros!). There is also a fantastic atmosphere, and the staff are friendly, attentive and cool. Eggs in the City has a unique flair and personality (the food, staff and decor). The last time we visited we were doubly impressed. My sister in law had ordered a wrap, but noticed there was blue cheese on it once it arrived. She started picking it off the wrap. One of the staff noticed and came right over. He said they would make her a new wrap, which they did, and they boxed the other one up for the rest of us to eat later. This was on a very busy morning, and people were waiting to get tables, so you wouldn't expect to have such attentive service. We had lots of requests that morning, as we had a new baby at the table as well, and the staff were accommodating and gracious the entire time. And the food was to die for, as always! Check it out, you'll love it! more

I'm skepitcal about the previous complaints 11/13/2010

I've been eating here for years, so I think my opinion is not trivial and unwarranted. I was a little surprised to see the recent complaints regarding poor food and/or poor service and the food being too expensive. Keep in mind that the kitchen is more than happy to add vegetables (tomatoes, sauteed onions, avocados, etc and I assume they also have meats such as bacon or sausage) to you burritos, omelets etc. Regarding the service... the managers, owner, hostess and the waiting staff have always been extremely conversational and go out of their way to make my breakfast enjoyable. If the waitress isn't coming to your table or if they remove something from the table that you wanted, just wave them down or talk to them when they pass by you. Its not rude to say, ""Hey I was using that ketchup"". I personally find it hard to believe that anyone could have any complaints on the side of the staff. Many times, from personal waiting experience, when the waitress/waiter seems to be rude to a table, it is frequently a response to a table that could possibly be overly critical and/or excessively demanding, or they may simply be busy, if that's the case, attempt to show a little patience. Finally regarding the price... yeah its very expensive if your are using McDonald's or Denny's as the subject of comparison. However if you consider this food is essentially homemade with fresh ingredients when you order it, I think the price is more than reasonable. One reason I eat here is solely for the atmosphere, it is hypo-eccentric (hypo implies mildly), quite pleasantly unique indeed. Obviously the food is good in my opinion, but the friendly staff and the atmosphere is the main reason I return here a couple times a week. more

Good Food Bad Service 10/9/2010

Me and my girlfriends decided to stop by and Egg's and the City after over hearing some co-workers loving the food. When we got there the greet was very casual, kinda as if she was brushing us off. She was fast, which was okay. We waited about 20 mins before we got our food, the food was delicious by the way, but the service was not nearly as great. Our waiter would walk by our table about 4 or 5 times without saying anything. When she did come by the table, she grabbed the ketchup I was using without saying anything and never returned with it.. very strange. I didnt think waiters should remove ANYTHING from the table without the customers consent because situation like mine, I was USING that ketchup.. strange. On top of that, she never came and asked us how our meal was and if we needed anything. It was horrible. I had to ask the people next to us if I could borrow their ketchup since our waitress took ours. When we left, I had to grab my own to-go box.. luckily their supply was next to our table. I have never needed to serve myself at a restaurant like that. If the food wasnt delicious, I would've given Egg's and the City no stars at all. more

Excellent, food ++, atmosphere ++ and service ++ 9/6/2010

Eggs in the City is a creatively envisioned and excellently executed casual dining experience! The menu has something for everyone, from luxurious Eggs Benedict to simple scrambles and REAL Corned Beef Hash! If you are in Salt Lake and looking for somewhere to soak in some local ambiance and GREAT food Eggs in the City is NOT TO BE MISSED! I would be remiss if I did not mention the charming owner, Heather. She welcomes you like family and clearly loves what she does. Her passion for fine food and great service are apparent in everything the do! more

My Absolute Fav Breakfast Place 5/27/2010

I love their breakfasts and the Mexican Chicken Salad for lunch. I've never had a bad meal here and I've tried a lot of their items. The service is really good. I just wish so many other people didn't like it as well, as the wait can be long at busy times! Neighborhood people walk over and leave the strollers and the dogs outside - a cozy atmosphere. Pros: great food/service, patio Cons: have to wait at busy times more

Outstanding food and service 3/6/2009

Great people, great food, great restaurant. more

Terrible food but wonderful service. 2/19/2009

The food was absolutely horrible. I got the eggd flourentine (which is my fav breakfast food) and my wife got the mama burrito. I was extremy disappointed in the food. Their hollandaise sauce didn't taste like any kind I've ever had. I, in all honesty, could have found trash from a garbage that tasted better. My wife's burrito was very bland and unappetizing. We will never be eating here again. The only saving grace was the service. Our waiter was perfect, handlebar mustache and all :) There was another young lady with a bunch of old school tattoos. She was extremely nice and very attentive even though we weren't her table. Kudos to those two. In closure, I will not be coming back and I wouldn't recommend Eggs In The City to my worst enemy. more

Great service all the way around 2/14/2009

eggs in the city is the best breakfast in town. The service is amazing, and i felt so welcomed by the owner and waitresses. it's not every day that you have such great service. i would reccomend this so anyone that likes to wake up on a saturday morning and eat a fulfilling breakfast. the bus boy that was wearing the highland high school attire was so great, and did a great job and was so nice. It's good to know that even the worker that doesn't associate with customers as much is also trained to be so nice to the customers. I ordered the meat lovers skillet. if you are a man, you need to try this out. it is scrambled eggs, breakfast potatoes, bacon, cheddar cheese, and sausage. i also was supplied with orange juice, which was always kept full. the service was great, even on a saturday when i went. i do warn you that the place is pretty busy on the weekends, but even with the hectic environment, the service is still great, and the employees handle it well. i will come back to eggs in the city, and i reccomend it as the best breakfast food in the valley Pros: meatlovers skillet and amazing service Cons: gets hot inside in summer. try to sit on patio for a great summer effect more

Good place to hang out, but food is inconsistent 10/21/2008

The food is inconsistent, depending on the cook.. and the quality of meat. At times it's so good, but other times the meat's so chewy I can't eat. Same thing with the potato. Overall, a bit more expensive than other breakfast joints in SLC - catering for the yuppies, I guess. more

Disgusting, with the rudest service... 8/25/2008

After waiting 15 minutes to get seated on a Wednesday, while looking at 4 empty tables, we waited another 10 minutes for water, and good 15 more to order. I swear I saw the brunette waitress drop silverware on the floor, pick it back up and set it on an open table, the place seemed like a greasy mess with not the best food but, but defiantly the worst service I have ever had, I was to scared to eat my food..... who knew what else had been dropped and put back on the plate. Pros: Nothing Cons: Everything more

Yummy and Funky 7/31/2008

I love the food and the great location, but the best part is the service. When I drag myself out of bed its nice to see friendly faces in a good mood who give great service. The girls that are usually there are so great. They always have a smile and don't just say ""how's the food"" as they walk by, but they actually want to know how the food and everything is. They're really good about making sure your food is just right, and if its not, getting it right. They give great recommendations if you're having a hard time choosing, and the best part for me...my water glass is always full. They are also willing to customize your food to whatever diet you might be on at the time... no carbs, all carbs, whatever! They have the best french toast in the city. Its the east coast version, which is hard to come by. Its also fun to learn about all the cool stuff around the restaurant, and the artwork is amazing. If your up for good food with amazing service, you have to check it out. Pros: Great service, amazing french toast Cons: Busy on the weekend more

Don't miss out on this great place 7/8/2008

We were recently in SLC for 2 weeks. We were intrigued by the name as we drove by and decided to come back and check it out. We did so 4 times in the 2 weeks we were in town! Their biscuits and gravy are awesome - served with 2 eggs cooked to order that are put on top of the biscuits with cheese and then all are smothered in the wonderful gravy with chunks of sausage. Their eggs benedict is very good, too. Service is very friendly and fast. Atmosphere of eating in a converted garage is cool - nice touch to have the garage doors open to the outside seating area. Pros: Food, service, atmosphere, location, cleanliness Cons: Don't offer dinner more

Great on a sunny day 5/28/2008

Went for lunch today. The atmosphere was very sunny and indoor/outdoor seating. The menu offers breakfast (omelets, breakfast burritos, I noticed biscuits & gravy, but did not try). Had a veggie sandwich; it was pretty good, better than most, but not the best. Wasn't impressed with the bread. Breakfast potatoes were also above average, some crispy, some potatoey. Boyfriend had a burger, wasn't too big and the bread was soft (I have no opinions on that one, just an observation.) I will definitely try a Saturday/Sunday brunch. Worth going back. more

hip & cool: be, and be scene 5/17/2008

i had the eggs florentine and the husband had the meat lover's special. the hollandaise on the eggs could have used some lemon and a touch of curry in it but at least it was a real sauce because it started to separate as i was almost done eating. the sausage in the meat lover's was differently spiced than one would expect but very good. the place was warm on the first 80+ day in the valley but otherwise comfy and welcoming. not sure i would want to eat there when it was super hot weather. we were seating in a primo spot outside & it was lovely. as a major side note: i know the folks in the neighgorhood hate this place because it's popular and parking overflows into the neighborhood for a few houses in either direction. emigration market is kitty corner from the restaurant and jolley'spharmacy just to the south. it might explain why there are so many houses in the area for sale. it's no reason to be rude though. not sure why they moved there in the 1st place if they didn't want to be able to be within walking distance to these amenities. the neighbors on the side street to the northeast were very rude to me. sorry i walked on the grass at the treeline bordering the street - don't block the sidewalk so people can use it [you, your wife, your exceedling cute child who you were oohhing and ahhing over as he tried to walk and did a face plant on the cement, along with another couple], put a sign up asking people to please not walk on the grass because you just put sod down [it wasn't obvious at all], or don't yell at people to get off the lush grass next to the street/parking. my choice was to walk in the street on the grass bordering it. Pros: great tats on one of the waitresses Cons: rude neighbors/parking more

best breakfast in slc 3/3/2008

love this place, especially when they start the out door seating in spring. its nice to go somewhere and get treated special because you're a regular. the food here is awesome!!! better get there early or plan to wait, the portions are huge and everything is fresh, its well worth the wait! Pros: pancakes and blintzes Cons: so popular you have to wait more

Amazing Food and Amazing Service 3/3/2008

Welcome To Eggs In The City: HOURSE ARE 7AM to 2PM Seven Days a week. I have emailed city search to no avail. \r \r Hi I am Jessa and I am a server at Eggs. I thought I would hop online and give you some suggestions and perks about Eggs In The City. We have done a lot of updating on our menu and restaurant and would love to have you stop in. \r \r What are you known for you might ask? Well.... We are known for a few great items that you may have just not tried when coming in before. Ask for one of our Breakfast Burritos smothered in Jose's homemade chile verde. It is yummy. Also our french toast is to die for. We call it Diablos French Toast cause it is sinful. It is marinated in maple syrup and once it hits the grill it carmilizes the french toast. Also, if you don't like our potatoes which we are always tring to improve feel free to sub them for a slice of this wonderful french toast.\r \r Also the Greek Skillet is new to Eggs and is deeelicious. It is a bed of potatoes grilled with green peppers, onions, spinach, feta, chedder and avo- It comes with two eggs and tortillas or toast to wrap it all up in. \r Our Salads are fresh and wonderful and our Beef Philly and PotRoast Tacos(Ask when coming in..its a chef specialty) will knock your socks off and will be the best you will ever have. We also serve hot and fresh local roasted MillCreek Coffee.\r \r After reading some of the reviews I was sad to hear that food had been coming out hap-hazzardly. We have a head chef that has worked out the kinks of that from last fall. We hope you will give us another try. Also, in regards to being out of food. We get so busy on the weekends that we actually RUN out of food. We have also changed our food order to comply and it has seemed to work out nicely. Come in and speak with me and I will make your stay a pleasant one. \r \r Hope I have given some helpful tips. \r \r Come and see the crew down at Eggs In The City and we will treat you like family. \r Jessa Orme.... Pros: Patio Seating, Fast Service, Treated like Family, Smothered Burritos, French Toast, Reservations, Family Oriented, Good Coffee, Nice View. more

Overpriced Oatmeal and picky on price 1/29/2008

I basically wanted a bowl of oatmeal with fruit on top and for $6.50 they gave me the ""creme brulee"". a small bowl of oatmeal with some blueberries, banana, pecans and brown sugar. i asked for the pecans on the side and they tried to charge me for a side order of pecans. needless to say, i had a bad first visit to the restaurant. the egg dishes looked good and seemed to be worth their price, but don't come here expecting flexibility when ordering or universally reasonable menu prices. more
