I like the Egg & I for a consistently yummy breakfast. It is always busy on the weekend, so it is always loud in the dining rooms, so don't expect quiet conversation. The classic breakfast is the best, with eggs, bacon or sausage, great home fries, and toast with jam. Pancakes and french toast are also a good choice. This is a good, lively place to go with the family or a group of friends. Service is quick and efficient, but not usually very friendly.

My family and I went for breakfast here today. I was impressed at how friendly and accommodating the staff were. It was very busy, however we were seated in a timely manner and were approached immediately by our server. My coffee was served hot and fresh. Our food came out shortly after we ordered, hot and the portions were great for the price. If you are looking for a restaurant to take your friends or family to, I highly recommend the Egg and I. Thank you to the staff for providing such a great dining experience. Great food, great service.

Went for bfst with my husband today. the restaurant was so cold I had to keep my coat on, eggs Benny was ok but the sauce got too cold too quickly. And I am not trying to be to picky or rude but the kitchen help did not appear to be the cleanest people. That turned us off. And bfst cost 32$ for the 2 of us, I know things aren't getting any cheaper, but that's pricey for bfst.
