Didn't seem terribly busy when we were there for lunch. I had eggs benedict and it was nothing special. Service was fine. We were traveling through, so won't return. But given it's apparently a chain, I also wouldn't ever go out of my way to eat there again either.

We had breakfast here one morning- very good standard fare, eggs, bacon, fruit, etc. but they also had some unusual items on the menu - for example; oatmeal pancakes. The atmosphere is light and bright- feels like a good place to start your day!

The food wasn't too bad. Our daughter loved the pancakes but my husband and I weren't impressed that it was canned gravy on their biscuits and gravy. The food wasn't bad but could've been better.

I avoid chain restaurants as much as possible, but one in our group had previously loved his "Egg & I" meal in Denver and wanted to stop. The food and service were both good, the atmosphere is what you would expect at a chain restaurant.

The breakfasts are all really good and plentiful and love the sandwiches. Tastes like homemade. Good place to have a meeting in their separate area.

Egg and I has a good breakfast menu and the lunches are pretty good also. The only thing about this restaurant is it gets pricey. I like the Colorado scramble. Only thing that I have had that was "weird" was corn beef hash was not what I am used to.

We enjoy eating here, it's a cozy atmosphere, usually doesn't take too long for your food and generally they're receptive to "special orders".

This restaurant a part of a chain. It is located in a strip mall. That being said , it is a delightful space that is charmingly decorated. Food is wonderful, especially since they have healthy options such as juiced drinks. I had a harvest hash breakfast which was chocked full of delicious vegetables. My husband had a hardier breakfast, skillet... More
