The Egg & I is a mainstay in the Hamilton area. For a diner that has serviced a wide variety of clientele it has maintained it's quality & service. Food tastes like home cooking, the coffee is the best I have tasted and the term "Fast Food" takes on a whole new meaning here.
Prices are fair and the menu selections are varied. They serve breakfast all day and their lunch/dinner menu is offered after noon as well as the breakfast menu. You choose. With so many new eateries in Hamilton to choose from, make sure you keep them on your list.

I recently had the pleasure of visiting the Egg and I on a business lunch with an associate from Toronto. We both had the toasted BLT and the portions were enormous. We ordered the fresh home fries that were perfectly seasoned and fresh cut fries cooked in sea salt we couldn't even finish.

Service was incredibly attentive and never let our coffee fall below half. The owners Patricia and Nikola checked in on our table and made us feel like family.

We will definitely be back and encourage anyone to visit this Ancaster gem.

This review is based on a breakfast of coffee, bacon, and homefries. I like that they serve a huge thermos of coffee and leave it on the table, but the flavour is average and not very strong. I like that they serve 4 large pieces of bacon, but if you like it crispy you'll have to ask. The home fries are edible but not very tasty, and not crispy (which I prefer). Overall it was an average meal and I would try somewhere else in Ancaster the next time.

Stopped for a later breakfast and wanted to fill up because I wasn't going to eat again before dinner.

Sort of typical breakfast food with some English influence. Prices, when converted to American dollars, were relatively inexpensive. Service was fast and cheerful. Preparation was average but solid.

Certainly met my expectations for a quick and hearty breakfast with ample portions that I really couldn't finish.

I meet friends for breakfast monthly. Food and service is consistently great. Portions are huge, food is hot and service is quick.
