Seems If I want them, in my neck of the woods, you have make them yourself. Which we often do at home. Some bacon, toast sticks, orange juice, and a soft boiled egg in the shell.
I am not sure why it's not done more here. While in Europe, many of the breakfast joints in the hotels had a tank of boiling water on the bar with timers, along with some bread/pastry options. You made your own egg to your own desired doneness.
Why not here?

Perhaps the demand isn’t great enough?

That said, it doesn’t seem like the cost to offer them would be very high. How expensive can egg cups be?

I’ve never seen the boiling tank on my travels Brad, I’ve often seen the large heated tray of hard boiled eggs but never the boiler..... I like the idea though - 4&1/2 minutes for me if you please.

As I recall, from 2 years ago, we saw them in the Saarland, and Paris, and Strasbourg. 

Look like this one.

Tongue-in-cheek, compare the yolk of a soft boiled egg to the yolk of a raw egg.  That's why I like mine hard.  And when it's fried eggs in a restaurant it's "over, broken, harder than hard."    However, I still occasionally get one not quite done (?), but thanks to ketchup, pretty much anything is edible.    

I had a brother-in-law who didn't eat any eggs because: "I'm not gonna eat something that comes out of a hen's azz."

As always....  to each his/her own. yes

They are not a thing in my part of the world. I've never had one, never seen one offered on a menu or as a guest at anyone's home. They don't sound very appealing as I like my egg flavor wrapped in bacon grease or butter and these sound very "eggy".

Not that common. In my many years of travelling around Europe and staying in the sort of hotels that business travellers stay in I don't remember seeing one. And the high point of business travel is a hotel breakfast so I would have remembered.

One of my favorite breakfasts when I was a kid (Mom would only do this on weekend mornings): cornbread (from a mix, the sweet kind we get here up north); bacon; a soft-boiled egg. You put a slab of hot cornbread in the bowl, loaded on butter, tore up a few slices of bacon, added the soft boiled egg, mashed everything together and ate the whole mess with a spoon.

It's been 50 years since I ate that, if it's been a day. Or even thought about it, if I'm honest.

I might just have to dust it off.

I mainly know soft boiled eggs from Hercule Poirot, who insisted that the two eggs served him be EXACTLY the same size. EXACTLY!!!!!

I've tried the soft boiled egg thing with toast sticks.
Just a gooey texture that doesn't sit right on my tongue.

Hard boiled get sliced and diced into Tabasco egg salad stuffing for sandwiches.
A few eggs get fried "over hard" in a dab of bacon fat.
Part of a complete breakfast with buckwheat pancakes and blueberry jam.

Common in France and Switzerland, and I've seen them in Japan. Never seen one in a hotel in the states.

Common? I'd love to know where they are common.  I've spent lots of time on the continent, and I've never seen one. I would love to though, as I think they look great.

Every Ibis I've stayed at had an egg boiler: that would be St Cloud, Marseilles, and Versailles. The casino I stayed at in Geneva. And the buffet at one of the airport hotels near Narita.

We stay at an inn on Cape Cod that has an egg cooker similar the one pictured above that they put out for their breakfast buffet. They have a sign with cooking times for soft and hard boiled eggs.

Soldiers Brian, the toast sticks are called soldiers.

Boiled eggs and soldiers are a lazy Sunday morning breakfast here in my house.

Bill, i understand where he's coming from.  I have 5 hens and they all lay different sized/shaped/coloured eggs.  You could get away with one egg from Bob and another from chickzilla, but if you had one from bossy and another from uncle Chris, your breakfast would comprise of one runny egg and one hard as a stone smiley
