GOOD OL' FASHIONED AMERICAN STYLE FOOD.
Very good meals, served quickly, and fresh. Nothing fancy here but the prices are LOW and the portions are generous. Breakfast is especially reasonable & the service is very friendly. I have eaten there many times and have not been disappointed!
Not everyone understands.
I have been to the Egg Connection several times. I have taken many dates there in the past. Now of course it is my wife's favorite restaurant. I even proposed to her there. I can not help but try to relate situations in life. I do my best to see both sides of any story. I love this restaurant. They have the best homemade French toast this side of the Milky Way.
I wanted to express my concern with the person that commented on the lemons. Most people who patronize a restaurant do not know what is exactly involved in running such an establishment. Especially with the cost of fuel increasing, having supplies -- such as produce -- delivered to the restaurant is not cheap. It costs the establishment money to purchase the lemons so why should someone else get them for free? A lot of people who order "lemon water" use sugar at the table to make their own lemonade. That sugar costs money too. I just want people to understand the other side of it. The restaurant is not making money on lemon water -- merely covering their costs to get the lemons there in the first place.
I hope that is helpful in understanding how a small mom & pop establishment has to survive. A major corporation such as IHOP or Deny's does not have the same worries as a small business. You might have to pay fifty cents for some lemon; but, you will not get the quality and service for a better price anywhere else.
My advice try it for yourself. You will not regret it.
Charging for lemons when ordering water with a meal!.
First time patronizing the Egg Connection today. One must read the entire menu (front to back). Food was good - the usual cafe type of food for breakfast for an omellete, homefries, and toast. I had water to drink and ordered lemons for my water - was appauled when I checked out to find that I was charged 50 cents a dish for lemons for my water. I had gotten two dishes (just the lemons cost $1.00 at checkout). They showed me where on the menu it states that they do indeed charge for lemons but I personally patronize many establishments here in Tucson and have never been charged for lemons when getting water to drink with my meal. I personally will never go back to the Egg Connection!
Best breakfast, best service, fantastic family-owned restaurant.
Tucked in the Ft. Lowell/Country Club shopping plaza is a family-owned restaurant that has both standard and innovative dishes, excellent service, and an irrepressible family atmosphere where everyone is welcome. The outside doesn't reflect what you'll find inside: character, funky ambience, humor, and dedicated professionalism wrapped up in a family package.
People who love where they work reflect that in their food and their service. These folks take pride in every dish that comes out of the kitchen, and in every order they take. When the owner gets behind the grill and their daughter serves it to you, it's clear they take quality personally.
The food, the atmosphere, the customers and staff -- this is a singular experience in Tucson. Packed on the weekend, but if you're game, dive right in!
Oh, and watch out for their signature cinnamon rolls. They put Cinnabon to shame!
