Egg-ceptional Restaurant is located at 5 Pigeon Hill Road in Mechanic Falls, Maine. They are open for breakfast and lunch from 6:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. seven days a week.
There's a diner-type lunch counter
And many tables in a dining room with lots of windows, which give it a really light, bright atmosphere.
In addition to serving meals, they offer a wonderful assortment of baked goods, including whoopie pies (some the size of a dinner plate), cookies, and various kinds of muffins that were almost as large as a football! Homemade fudge is also available. What's not to love?
Our waitress Tammy, who doubles as the assistant manager, was friendly, attentive, and efficient.
I ordered a cheeseburger and would you believe, a small order of French fries? The basket of fries was huge; I shared with Mr. Eva, and we still only ate a third of them. The hamburger patty was larger than the bun, and over-lapped by nearly half an inch all the way around! I was put off by it at first, because it had the look of a pre-formed patty, stuffed with non-beef filler to keep its shape. Happily, I was mistaken. It was delicious, as was the crisp pickle that accompanied it!
Mr. Eva had a chicken salad sandwich on toasted wheat bread with a small side order of onion rings. His sandwich was tasty and had lots of fresh lettuce in it. But the highlight of the meal were the onion rings! They were awesome! Again, even though we shared them, we couldn't finish them all. I would go back again to have those onion rings once more!
Tammy told us about their Omelet Challenge and their Wall of Fame. It seems the chef makes an 8-egg omelet; if you can finish the omelet, toast, and home fries, they take your picture and post it on the Wall of Fame in the entry way. Mr. Eva perked up at the thought, but I nixed that idea! No way does he need to eat 8 eggs at one sitting! Lots of people have done it, however, as the wall was plastered with photos of satisfied winners.
As we drove away, we agreed that Egg-ceptional was a great place to eat! If you would like to visit their web page, check out the menu, or see photos of the Wall of Famers, click here.
Note: I was in no way compensated for this review; we paid for our meals and the opinions expressed are mine and Mr. Eva's only!
