My wife and I were visiting our family in The Woodlands and wanted to eat breakfast out one morning. Our daughter and son in law recommended the Egg and I and we took their recommendation.

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!

The Egg and I has good food, nothing special. As it states focused on breakfast, the selection is good, the portions are OK, and the taste is also OK. However depending were you sit, you look right into the kitchen, and it's not one of these high end kitchens. They do not have any (double) door towards the kitchen. It... More

My friend and I try to meet here for breakfast about once a month. The food was okay, but not great. They moved to a bigger location several months ago and they have more room. We haven't had to wait, but I am not sure it would be worth.

Great place for breakfast. Since they have expanded; there is more room altho it is always crowded on the weekend. Best omelette ever; and such a great variety of breakfast entrees. Service is quick and very pleasant atmosphere.
