You cannot go wrong in selecting this restaurant for breakfast or brunch. Many creative egg dishes, and many healthy choices as well. The pancakes are very good. You may have to request the Blueberry pancake if other seasonal choices are listed, as for some strange reason they removed it from the menu. They still serve it; you just have to... More

If you're looking for a quality, solid breakfast this is your place. They were busy but they moved customers really well and we never felt rushed. I had waffles and my wife had eggs Benedict. Both of us were happy with our meal.

We stopped in on a Thursday morning around 8 a.m. It was pretty busy. We were seated right away. The server came right away and took our drink orders. We both had eggs, bacon, potatoes, and toast. The food came out fast and it was hot. I always enjoy eating at the Egg and I as we have one in... More

What I particularly like about the menu is that I can go for brunch with a friend and, while I eat breakfast, she might choose to eat a salad. Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day so I'm not locked into eating a salad or burger just because of the time we get together for a late morning meeting.

Like many things on their menu and have had good experiences with their servers. Cute place with lots of breakfast options. It's a busy place, so be prepared to wait a bit at busy times. Wish it was a bigger place, and I'd go more often.

This one followed the standard set by other restaurants / franchises for The Egg and I. No reservations. Come early on weekends, especially Sundays. Enjoy coffee, free, while waiting. The service is efficient and friendly. The food can be simple (bacon & eggs) or more exotic - your choice. Menu is almost overwhelming - there are that many choices. The... More

The service and food are awesome! The staff makes sure your food is cooked just like you want it. Waffles are excellent and the fall pumpkin spice waffles are now available! Don't skip breakfast!
