Today's visit at Egg & I, it went very well. I went around 10 A.M., where rush hour for the morning seems to be slowing down a bit. We didn't have to wait too long for a table. The interior design was very cute. The place looked sanitized and I felt very comfortable. The pricing of the food wasn't too... More

9/10 the service is wonderful, the food is good and plentiful, and the services is quick. If you get bad food or service, it happens, but it is unusual. Recently they have cut down their menu selection, but I don't feel that the restaurant has suffered for it. Try the "Big Breakfast" on an empty tummy and you will be... More

After we ordered we were attacked by dozens of flies. The waitress just smiled and said they are bad aren't they. No attempt at killing the flies. Food was fair we ordered dinner maybe the breakfast is better. No wonder place wasnt busy.

I had avoided this spot since my last visit quite a few years ago as the restaurant was old and stale - in appearance, quality and smell. It happened that one day doing major home Reno projects my husband and I just needed a comfort meal out of the house so we decided to stop in since it is right... More

We have stopped in on at least a few occasions, hoping for a better experience each time but to no avail. We won't be indulging again anytime soon. It's a very busy place no doubt but the service is not up to par. Somewhat unattentive service and long waits to place an order is aggravating especially when you've been seated... More

In Ancaster on business, we were early enough that we decided to wait breakfast till we had been to our appointment. About 10 a.m. we arrived at Egg and I. It was moderately filled. We were seated at once with menus. Not having had our morning coffee, we ordered caffeine and looked at the menu. We felt that the prices... More
