The idea sprung to life in Montreal in 1993. We started out with just a few key thoughts and a passion for innovation and memorable experiences.
From the first, we wanted to take our favorite mealtime ingredients and creatively expand their culinary taste delights across not just breakfast and brunch but also to lunch and dinner—set in a welcoming and energetic bar and café ambiance. This new level of innovation has led us to today’s satisfying and diverse eggspectation menu ranging from freshly prepared artisanal brioche French toast, thin French crepes, Belgian waffles, fluffy buttermilk pancakes, pastas, burgers, seafood, steak and—of course—eggs benedict! Those Montreal beginnings have grown to fit today’s fresh, clean, and very tasty modern American cuisine.
Even after 25 years, we are thrilled to celebrate our customer friendly culture with its focus on service, an eye toward better eating, and a passionate reverence for all things “breakfasty.”
Surpassing Your “eggspectation”
See how our current patrons enjoy us so much
As the eggspectation reputation and guest satisfaction grew, international growth of our restaurant-cafés expanded, and now there are close to thirty locations worldwide.
We also wanted to make sure our flavorful recipes were presented by people who truly cared about the guest’s total experience as much as we do! So, we worked—and continue to work―to build restaurant-café teams relishing the chance to deliver a caring, casual, and engaging experience. To set the stage for our light-hearted and trendy cosmopolitan but casual restaurant and café ambience, we reached out for an industrial chic décor with contemporary artwork to convey the full eggspectation experience.
