I go to the Egg and I occasionally and enjoy their Corned Beef Hash topped with Eggs any style. They do a good job with this They have lots of interesting menu selections though and I feel you will be satisfied with their offerings. The food usually comes out nice and hot and this is a real plus and a... More

It had been a while since we had breakfast here and noticed several changes since last time. First of all there is mostly all new help and the place is not as spic and span as it used to be. The carpet is not vacumed after a family leaves with small children. There was food under a lot of tables.... More

Several of my group at the YMCA frequent this place for lunch after water aerobics. The food is a little different but wonderful! Many great soups and sandwiches and drinks. It is very clean an decorated so sweetly. The wait staff are friendly and helpful.

I came in expecting to eat breakfast but once I saw their menu, I simply couldn't decide. The breakfast burritto looked amazing, eggs benedict is always a favorite, and several other options looked equally tempting. That's when I saw it! Turkey on grilled sourdough with bacon, cheese, tomato, avacado, and mayo. YUM! And the ranch potatoes? Worth another trip to... More

Frequent eater here. Food is good but sometimes they get it wrong and that means it's time for me to give it break. Overall good food, especially the Wisconsin scrambled eggs and decent prices. Oh that berry French toast summer special should be a regular.

The food was fresh and cooked just right. I really liked their Pineapple Tonic although pricey at $4 a glass. (This may be a summer drink only) Would have given a 5 except after they seated me I waited a long time before flagging down a server to ask for someone to take my order.

I've eaten breakfast and brunch several times and it's an excellent place. It's a solid morning stop. I was not blown away with their waffles but still high quality. My wife gets the eggs Benedict. She says it's really good.

I just love this place for breakfast. They are not cheap but it is always done right, they always cook the eggs to order, they have a great house coffee and the service is good . They don't open until 6 AM and you will sometimes have a wait for a table, but it is worth the wait.
