Beth R. – “Highly recommended based on my first experience with Eggsquisite this morning. We ordered directly from the restaurant for pick up. We had salmon Benedict and the croissant breakfast sandwich with hash browns. Pick up and ordering was easy and staff were super friendly. When we got home and unwrapped the food, the first thing that impressed us was they’d put the hollandaise sauce on the side. Such a considerate touch on a take out order so the Benedict doesn’t get soggy! Everything in our order was delicious. Everything! The bacon on the sandwich was crispy, the cheese to egg ratio perfect. Has browns were yum. Definitely adding this place to my regular go-to list.” – 5 Stars
