REVIEWS OF The Egg Shell IN Colorado


45 minute wait and an overall 2 hour meal for very lethargic service and a hard boiled poached egg. Food otherwise was tasty. Better off elsewhere for my money.

Brittany Caldwell

Tried the banana bread french toast. I do not recommend it. It was quite dry, and though syrup and butter made it edible it was still way too dry. So the food was two stars but I added an extra because the service was great. Quick, attentive and friendly. I'll give this place another chance sometime and try something else.

Gershom Spengler

Omelets were haphazardly assembled and not visually appealing. The tater tots instead of hash browns as an accompaniment felt like a cheap substitute.

Erin Butler

The food was delicious & the staff was wonderful. Great choice!

Alex Dodd

We thoroughly enjoyed our first meal at the egg shell. The outdoor patio is a lovely space and our cheery server was prompt and attentive. The real show stealer was the shooting star skillet... Loaded up with tots and cream cheese. Delish!

Scott Anderson

Very attentive staff. Friendly interactions. Quiet location with moderate foot traffic. The food hit my taste buds out of the park. 5 stars no doubt, perfect place for brunch. Try the mimosas.

Kristina Getty

This place was absolutely amazing. We came during the week, and there was no wait.

Javier Bautista

The Huevos rancheros plate was great on my weekend visit. The staff is friendly and the place is very comfortable.

John Moffett

Cool breakfast spot. Super fast. Egg sandwich was excellent. Very pleasant staff. Light and airy decore.

Joseph Gillette

I had a good breakfast here. The service was good.

Adi Avishalom

Great food, great service. The tatet tots are amazing. Top notch breakfast place.

Lisa Groshong

Great food and fast service. Make sure you get the fresh donut holes for $1. They are amazing!

Heather Novak

Good food is important to me, and I like interesting! This lovely place delivered,. I loved the eclectic collection of mugs, herbs on the sill & local organic coffee. I had the huevos rancheros with green chili & crispy little tots tucked inside like a surprise. I meant to order the half, but devoured the full!


Ok not great.

Sean Lariz

Great prices, fast service. A bit of a wait but overall pretty good.

Leann Schrag

The food was really good. The menu had a variety of choices & the service was attentive.

Tamora Papas

Good service. Good food

Steve Burri

Great corned beef hash! Be prepared to wait

Michael Menard

Great food good price

Christopher Swindle

A great little spot near 16th Street, very good breakfast. I've been here three times and everything I've had has been delicious

Steve Purkapile

Best pancakes anywhere. I don't know why but the batter combined with real maple syrup is the best. They serve tater tots instead of hash browns so a little different. Coffee is strong but not bitter like the popular brands today. As good as the food is, I'm always amazed it's never busy for being in the heart of LODO.

Eric Weis

My mouth was really happy with the breakfast burrito !

James Leonard

Visiting from Atlanta for a conference. Perfect breakfast spot before first session. Reasonable prices, excellent service. Food was tasty and coffee was good. Highly recommend!

Tashina Taylor

Food is good, service is extremely slow.

Kailee Homolka

Kind staff, quick service right when they open, good atmosphere, and tasty food. Second day in a row having breakfast here.

Everett Taylor

Good food

Stanley Manning

Experienced The Egg Shell one morning while staying at a nearby hotel. The food was excellent, and so much so, we had breakfast there the next morning. Would highly recommend the Denver Omelette and the stack of pancakes. Also found the servers to be very friendly and helpful, greeting diners with a smile and pleasant conversation.

Jorge I Arroyo

Place was a bit overpriced but the food was okay.

Brittany Flokstra

Amazing food! Fresh, local, and no wait. I had a Shooting Star skillet with tater tots that was incredibly tasty. I'm still thinking about that meal and it's been days. Would highly recommend (skip Sam #3 and walk a block to this place).


Very tasty. Great service. As a guest it was very nice to have breakfast here.

Catherine Montegna

Relaxed atmosphere, tasty food, pleasant staff.

Isra Omar

Great ambience and yummy food. We were debating between syrup and eggshell. The food was light but delightful. We ordered the Swedish crepes, banana nut bread, egg Benedict, and granola French toast. All of the options were really good. The staff was awesome and it didn’t take too long to make. I highly recommend this place plus the wait was not too long. Not a fan of the hollandaise sauce with the egg Benedict but my friends enjoyed it. The tater tots weren’t too bad but you can’t expect much in that area I guess. Overall, it was a pleasure.

Mark Roseman

Pleasant space but food so so. The Californian Benedict is definitely to be avoided.


Great food and fast service with a smile

Maya Markham

Extremely kind staff, amazing waffles, and bearable wait times. One of the most underrated breakfast spots in town. Head on over, you won't regret it.

Gregory McBride II

Breakfast burrito was great

William McFall

Great breakfast. Fast, competent service!

Paul Garcia

Nice been, reasonably healthy. Nice patio seating and friendly service.


Food was tasty but bland. Slow service. Nice patio seating

Aleksi Derzon

The food and service here is incredible! I recommend the breakfast quesadilla. It was soooooo good! If you're downtown in Denver this is a must stop place

Jon Sheppard

The breakfast burrito is soo good I'm definitely going back to try more


The food looks horrible, the staff don't like freedom, and profile the citizens. There just as corrupt as the police.

keita thomas

Great food great staff

Phil Brown

Delicious food. Good Mimosas. Friendly Staff. Great View with big windows all around the restaurant. Loved it

Bill Lewis

I really enjoy this place, great coffee, nice staff and a perfect breakfast that really was quite to surprise! I had the Shooting Star Skillet and with poached eggs....that were just perfect! Thanks Egg Shell!

Robert Quinones

Lovely service by Nader. Delicious. Affordable.

Hunter G

Quaint breakfast eatery in the heart of downtown Denver. Anyone looking for a quick, but tasty, coffee and croissant should definitely stop here on their way to work especially if they want to mix it up and not go to Starbucks. The servers are the perfect amount of friendly and humorous for an early morning meal and the prices are quite reasonable.

Kevin Lindauer

This is a good breakfast spot. I friend or and will go back as it's conveniently located, has a good set of choices, and is reasonable. I did experience a problem with one of the dishes on my last visit that was quickly and correctly fixed grin the customer's point of view. I was a little surprised the owner started that she had yelled at one of the kitchen staff that had made the mistake. Good employees are hard to grow and worth keeping.

Jenna Crew

I loved this place. The food was amazing, drinks delicious, service prompt, and everyone was friendly even though the restaurant was busy. Great atmosphere!

Laura Klaversma

Great food! I've eaten here a few times. Everytime is wonderful. I especially like breakfast at lunch.

Roman Greer

Great food and hospitality. I enjoyed my French toast cooked to perfection. This is definitely one I will have to revisit

William John Pētry

The pancakes of from the egg shell were very good, however not extraordinary. They were above average for buttermilk, but what was truly delicious and worth going back for are the Swedish pancakes with Lingonberry Sauce. The pancakes were perfect, and the sauce was one of the best Lingonberry sauces I have had. Also, the coffee is worth pointing out. It was very good coffee from Boulder, Colorado, was no additional cost, and they will give you a coffee in a to-go cup for free as well as you leave.

Dee Cee

Good food at a great price. Very attentive service

Alana Zamora

Great menu, fresh take on traditional menu items and super friendly service. I ordered the half order of potato pancakes with egg (perhaps the presentation could've been better, but...) it was delicious.

Julia R

Off 16th ave, great for breakfast. Service was nice and food was great (or maybe we were too hungry)

james quinn

Awesome breakfast options that we're almost too pretty to eat. Family loved it here, ty!

Bradley Maston

Fantastic food. Good menu, great service. Got us in right away. I can't say how impressed I was by the friendliness of the staff.

Andrew Persichetti

We found this gem while wandering downtown looking for a late breakfast. The starfire skillet is to die for.

Gabriela Morales

Food was amazing. Ordered the half size chilaquiles and half size French toast.

s3ñ0r gu4po

Excellent breakfast, great location and fast service. Go check it out.

Sue Wilhite

Really good breakfast, friendly staff, nice ambience.

Chris McCullough

Wonderful little breakfast/lunch spot in the heart of downtown. The traditional breakfast and potato cakes are fire.

Rachel Matthews

This is the best place to come for a quiet business meeting or intimate conversation. The staff is great and very professional. My favorite local breakfast spot!

Thad Henry

Slightly understaffed on this fine Friday morning, but good service once seated and great food.

Dottie Schueler

This was a wonderful place for breakfast and get there early because there was a line up on the weekend. Eggs done right.

Austin Davis

Great french toast and iced coffee. 3 stars though because no wifi.

Paul Young

Nothing like the old Egg Shell but the same good food and service in a more uptown, downtown location.

Daniel Ayars

Great food, great service and great atmosphere.

Mia Garuccio

breakfast burrito is to die for!

Tami Young Cordova

Thank you! Wonderful hospitality and service; and the kitchen prepares food like they care! I thought this was going to be a tired, dated breakfast spot (sorry....)...but the atmosphere is clean and contemporary. We dug in, so here’s a pic of a mostly eaten plate and my Bloody Mary, after eating the full size olive and dill pickle. We’ll be back. (Initially went to syrup, down the street, but they had a 45 minute wait, 11 empty tables, no air conditioning and many many tables without food...what a blessing in disguise!) TIP: call in to place your name on wait list! ALSO, Patio has FULL SHADE :-)

Randell Russell

I had a really good bowl with some eggs over easy. It's quite close to the 16th street mall and even closer to my appartment so I'll be sure to be a regular.

Kayla Andis

The tator tots are a sad excuse for "home cooked style breakfast". They didn't put eggs in my burrito and it was partial cold. The French toast was pretty good saving a 1 star. Waitress was nice and gave us a discount on our meal. But the quality of the food for the price was subpar

Josh Gustafson

Very disappointed in quality of food given price. Rubbery cheese on omelette and tater tots as starch... yucky.

Sarah Floyd

Breakfast was delicious and the chai latte was on point.

Angie Broglio

Great food, slow service

Jennie Williams

Fast service, large portion sizes and the food tasted great.

Marvin Greer

Stopped in for breakfast and was very pleased. Service was good, food was top notch. Recommended.

Jesse Rooney

Great eggs Benny, looks as good as it tastes, they also bake their bacon, yum! Not a fan of tots, would prefer hash browns but it was already too filling with a full order, couldn't even eat the tots if I tried

Xavier Thompson

I like the setting and ambiance. The food was okay. Good customer service


Good breakfast, nice staff....but it would be so nice if you would change to organic eggs!!

Lance Garcille

Bland food. Poor service. Hostess and Waitress were Beautiful, i gave 2 stars for the pretty girls. Lol

Simran Sekhon


Overten Wilmot

Great place for breakfast! Staff does a great job of getting everyone seated even though it can be quite busy. Servers could be a little more polite.

Devin M

The food was amazing. Best French toast and really good breakfast quesadillas. It's a small cozy breakfast place nestled into downtown Denver. Relaxing atmosphere. The bloody Mary was one of the best tasting drinks ever.

Jake Rose

Luke warm lattes that tasted just like milk, relatively small portions, ok food.

David Evans

We are so glad to have chosen The Egg Shell for breakfast! Great food and friendly service!

Jay Finesilver

Good breakfast and service

Carlos Warwarick

Service and food was great... I'll be back

Kaitlyn Gulock

My dad and I ate here for breakfast and it was amazing. Everyone working here was incredibly kind, the coffee was great, and the breakfast sandwiches are AMAZING! The outdoor seating is very comfortable and cute. Would definitely come back for another feast.

Kevin Granville

Didn't look like much from the outside but the food was fantastic. So good my wife is wiping every morcil from her plate and took a picture of the menu. Good for gluten free as well.

Melissa Martin

Yummy bloody Mary and breakfast

Kevin Lynch

My favorite lunch spot downtown. The shooting star skillet is unique and excellent.

Harold Henderson

Good food, good prices. Only visible from Curtis Street (can be hard to find from other directions). But, worth looking for!

Tom Kuehnel

Popular breakfast or lunch stop. We popped in for breakfast and found the place fairly busy on a Monday morning. The service was pretty good although I found the food to be average. The tater tots had an unusual flavor which made me wonder what type of oil they have in the fryer.

Robert Elliott

Excellent service great portions. The half sizes are a great price

Winston Noles

This is an upstanding family-owned restaurant with quality food friendly staff and a genuinely Pleasant atmosphere!

Jacqueline Maldonado

Great vibe, yummy food and excellent service!

Mohamed Adil

I was surprised by their delicious food especially considering that it's from a breakfast restaurant in downtown! Highly recommended!

Lana Fernandez

Wonderful spot that offers traditional breakfast fare with subtle twists. Our waiter Jack was attentive and kind; overall A+ experience.

Susan Schiferl

This brunch was the best collection of flavors! I had the 1/2 order of the tot skillet and the portion was generous. Bloody Marys were perfect, and the patio is very cute. Service was attentive and friendly. Would go back again on our next trip to town!

Drew Lehman

Visiting from out of town and decided to try breakfast there. Cozy, clean and food was good.

j harding

Fresh & delicious. Friendly staff. Affordable menu items. Visited with a group as out of state travelers, worth a visit!

Grant Reed

Comfortable atmosphere, wonderful service, and delicious food. I recommend the potato cakes.

Jennifer Harvey

The was not wait, which should have been a huge red flag on a Sunday morning. Potato pancakes were under cooked. I could see there was bacon in the potatoes, but could not taste it. Over easy eggs were over cooked. Toast was soggy. Mediocre is how I would describe this meal. I feel you have to try to mess up breakfast food and that is what I experienced.

Eugen Geleban

Good place for breakfast

Sarah McKee

Incredible breakfast!!! The breakfast burrito was my favorite, very tasty.

Steven Stott

Great atmosphere, terrific food and a nice beverage selection. #localjoint

A Maur

Awesome food, ate there twice in one weekend!

John Sudderth

Great place around the corner from Sam's but way better and less crowded

El Liu

Get the shooting star skillet! Tater tots with cream cheese and mushrooms taste awesome!

Woojeong Choi

Half size order available. Good food

Marvin Ochieng

Great breakfast and good prices. Truly enjoyed this stop in Denver

Joey Costanza

Friendly staff and relatively quick service. My issue is with the quality of food. Ordered a coffee and the mug had lipstick all over the edge. Ordered eggs Benedict and the eggs were raw. Looked like snot running off of the English muffin. The whites were unbelievably raw. Both were brought to the attention of the server who apologized but offered no solutions. Spent $50 on nothing. Will not be back.

Cole Stratton

Excellent food and great service! GET THE BURRITO!

Tommy Joyce

Great little breakfast spot. Fiesta skillet is amazing....add bacon!

Ted Wallerstedt

High prices but tasty food.

Christopher Kelly

The food was fantastic and the service was excellent. Definitely will go back


Best breakfast burrito ever.

Zachary Jensen

4 stars for the food and free coffee while we waited ( for 45 minutes ). The hostess,, extremely rude. She seemed new. Hopefully that what it was. She is the reason I will not return. Everyone else seemed nice and the food was tasty.

Derek Foreal

This was one of my favorites! French toast was awesome! Coffee is good.

Maranda Graybeal

Great little spot downtown for a brunch. Very fair prices. Loved the outdoor area though we didn’t eat outside. It seemed like a very nice and quiet little spot to have a bite outdoors. The jam is really good. Best friend loved the banana French toast. I had the build your own omelette, it was also great!

Casper Penrod

Shooting star add bacon, AMAZING IS THE PERFECT DESCRIPTION, staff is great too

Carlton Spalding

VERY good place to grab some breakfast within the Denver area. The prices are reasonable and I'd recommend it to anyone else. My only gripe was the quality of the coffee and the staff. We almost went the entire meal with being given utensils and the coffee easily tasted like something I got from my days in the Navy, pretty bad.

Judy Petersen

Great service, great food!

Andrew Joerin

Great food at an awesome price

Mig Le

This place.. put me in a food coma breakfast ever lovely staff

Tim Burks

Great breakfast spot in downtown Denver! I arrived on a weekday morning just after it opened at 7 and found a clean and quiet spot with a broad menu, a friendly and attentive staff, and enough tea refills to wake me up.

legar gar

Don’t come here for the coffee. Food is good enough and location is great.

Christian Nielsen

For me, this place does not feel like a breakfast place, it’s a sandwich shop. The bacon tasted like it was reheated vs fresh. The hash browns are tater tots, which were good, but I would have preferred a good serving of Hash Browns. The sausage patties tasted store bought. The menu is confusing, like do I get pancakes or toast with my breakfast. I would suggest they do a little more to make it less confusing if this were my first time going.

Adam Bossert

Best breakfast burrito I've ever had. Loved the Russian Chai as well.

Abeer Baker

Half portions!!! This place serves full or half portions and was absolutely delicious! Friendly staff, I would eat here everyday if I lived in Denver!


I had the shooting star skillet (veg friendly) at the waiter's recommendation, and I was conpletely satisfied.

Rose Thomas

Great breakfast spot, excellent food and service! Veggie green chili was fab and Belgium waffles were delish!

dwight roberts

While in Denver why not a “Denver Omelet “ Light and fluffy perfectly cooked. Just the right size. Tater Tots Crispy fried. Sour dough bread and strawberry compote. Hit the spot!

Jill Harvey

Rather disappointing breakfast. I inquired as to whether the ingredients in the skillet were all vegetarian, and the server responded, "It's gluten free." I did end up ordering it after asking again, and the tater tots were soggy and the mushrooms tough, as if they'd been frozen. The toast was done properly.

Andy Quezada

Very friendly service and good coffee. Pleasant vibe

Orion Kingman

Fair. Nothing truly special. Decent food, okay coffee.

Christopher Barnes Williams

Food was borderline amazing and staff was super friendly and helpful i would reccomend this place if you only have limited time in Denver, its a win win

Shoshana Finkel

Great place for brunch; they accommodated our large group very nicely after a pretty last-minute reservation

Jesse Richards

Great service. Omelette was fantastic

Michelle Truter

Nice atmosphere and good service. But our meals weren’t amazing.

Tracey Carroll

Charming little place with an unassuming look, but wow, was the food good!! I'm not typically a breakfast person, but if I lived near The Egg Shell I'd probably become one. Hubby also loved that when we left, they sent him with his coffee refill in a to-go cup. Two big thumbs up!

Elisa Zeiset

Absolutely delicious food and extremely friendly staff....Mario was great!!!!! Would definitely eat here again and highly recommend. I would post a photo of my beautiful eggs Benedict, but I devoured it!!!!

Lisa Reina

Great food!

Norman Mottram

Excellent service and food was great. Was originally going somewhere else, but the wait was 20 minutes, this worked out well.

Chris Fehrmann

Not very busy, but should be. Good food and service. Only weird thing is tater tots for potatoes. I would rather have traditional breakfast potatoes or hash browns.

Lorie Jasso

The food was very fresh and delicious. Vegetarian alternative too. Our waiter Jack was very attentive. Highly recommend the place.

C. Frank

Food was delicious, we got an omlette and a skillet. Pretty busy on the weekends so expect a wait, but still had excellent service when we got seated.

Fernando Lins

They have a great deal on 5 dollar sandwich any lunch time. The sandwich varies depending on the day, sometimes it's a BLT other times a cheeseburger

Jennifer Thatcher

Great food and super cute.

Tom Sanchez

Good breakfast and friendly staff.

Chris Webb

Fine meal with friendly service. Their gimmick is serving tater tots not French fries or home fries. I got a burger for some reason. It was meh. The omelette at the table was fine. Nothing special.

Ara Freeman

The best breakfast place i've ever been to!

Jane Mason

Yummy egg salad sandwich!

D.J. Shea

The service and food we had today at The Egg Shell was fantastic! If you want a solid meal check this place out!

Ahmad Alhammadi

One of the best breakfasts I had.. very good food and very good service..

Chris Braun

Light and airy space to enjoy breakfast. The granola crusted croissant French toast was really good as was the banana bread French toast. Appropriate sized servings, not some monster meal. Coffee was good and staff was friendly. It wasn't very busy, even at 9:30 on a Saturday morning which was nice too.
