The Egg & I is a great place for a casual breakfast, brunch or lunch. I can only attest to great breakfasts, having never tried their delectable sounding lunch menu. Benedict's, frittatas, omelettes and scrambles dominate the breakfast menu along with pancakes, waffles and French Toast. Fresh juices juiced in-house with seasonal favorites along with special concoctions like a kale, Fuji apple, cucumber and lemon "Kale Cooler" are available as well as fresh coffee. The breakfast offerings are hard to choose from with a delectable mix of ingredients in the eggs Benedict, or frittatas...like crab cake Benedict, garden frittata or the Vera Cruz Chicken & Avocado Omelette (excellent)! Skillets such as the Texas Skillet (my favorite) with steak strips, sweet bell peppers, onions and house-roasted mushrooms on seasoned potatoes with melted Cheddar Jack, two eggs and English muffin share the menu with vegan and Mexican dishes as well. The service both times my wife and I ate there was exceptional. The waiters and waitresses act like they know you and they actually do know many regulars. We were treated like regulars and we would be if one of these cafes were closer to us.

My daughters and I ate breakfast here on Fathers Day morning. We got there at 10 and were told it would be a 20 minute wait but we were seated in less than 15 minutes. Service was friendly. Plenty of coffee refills. The food was delicious and plentiful. The restaurant is very clean and family friendly. I highly recommend it.

I am not much of a breakfast person, but admittedly, The Egg and I gave me a new appreciation for this meal. The menu had more than just the standard breakfast fare but the also had a variety of healthy and alternative offerings such as Avocado toast. They even have a kale drink on the menu. I ordered the Tuscan scramble which was eggs perfectly scrambled with avocado, smoke turkey, spinach, cheeses, and pesto. It came with fresh fruit (although it did appear to be frozen/thawed) and an English Muffin. It was delicious. Their sweet tea was perfectly brewed and sweetened! And the service was excellent. I will definitely be going back to this restaurant.

Note: they also have lunch options and gluten free options.

Have eaten here many times; latest time with spouse did not disappoint. Impressive menu selection, went with a whim (corned beef with eggs for breakfast? Why not?) and specialized order, no problem. Spouse got coffee (delicious, she says); server left carafes for water and coffee with us. More than we could eat, came out in good time.
Just as tasty as Magnolia Table with NO WAIT, cozy atmosphere, right price. 5/5!
