Came from shopping in Hamilton and stopped off for supper.

Several specials were offered over and above their menu meals. Specials included coffee (or tea), soup of the day (home made) and dessert.

Greeted and seated by staff (Michelle) and immediately offered a drink before ordering. Specials were listed on their wall for easy viewing. Ordered the roast beef special with mashed potatoes and coleslaw.

Enjoyed the meal and the service provided by Kendal and Madison.

We have frequented this restaurant often, and it is fairly consistent, and for quick, substantial meals, this is the place. It is hard to stray to other parts of the menu beside breakfast as they do seem to do that the best.
In recent years, it seems that the breakfast menu prices are creeping up, which does disappoint me. Yesterday's small breakfast of two buttermilk pancakes was $6.99. I felt like I should have eaten at home!

This is my husband's favourite breakfast restaurant. Great "greasy spoon" food, XL portions, costs less than home. It's always packed, especially on weekends, but the service is fast and they get you seated pretty quickly.

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.
