Eggspectation is coming back to Columbia!

In a surprise turnaround, Eggspectation will return to Howard County by opening a new location in the Meriwether District! They were formerly located off University Blvd and Waterloo Road, but it appears there was a break between the franchisee and Eggspectation causing the restaurant to relaunch as Jam Eateries.

Having an additional breakfast/brunch spot in Howard County will be very much welcomed!
