Presents as self as gluten friendly yet as a breakfast restaurant and yet offers no gluten free bread or muffin or bread choice of any kind. If it doesn't provide something simple like that it shouldn't have "gluten friendly" at the front door.

Enjoyed my first breakfast here on a Sunday and found it to be great. The Bacon Avacado scramble was wonderful and our server, Laura, was pleasant and efficient. We would come back here without question.

This is an excellent, clean and friendly restaurant that is just as good to one person as it is to a large group. The food comes out promptly and hot and, while the menu has changed and some of our favorite things are gone, there are still plenty of choices. Most of my friends join me in giving this a... More

For breakfast you will find everything from health juices to pancakes,waffles,eggs,grits and lobster Benedict,plus much more. There really is something for everyone from kids to seniors; health conscience or not. There may be a line, but service is quick, efficient and pleasant, so everything moves smoothly without feeling rushed.

We had eaten at the Portland restaurant and liked it, so when we found ourselves in Scarborough a few days ago at lunchtime we were pleased to discover the Egg & I had another location there. I ordered the avocado toast with scrambled eggs and LOVED it. Who would ever think something mundane as scrambled eggs could be that good?... More

The food at Egg and I is fine. Certainly not gourmet, but good home style cooking. Atmosphere is pretty basic. Staff is friendly. A good local spot to grab breakfast with a friend!

Went to breakfast with my daughter, was surprised it was open on New Years Day. The wait was less than 5 minutes, service was good, friendly staff. A little pricey
