We have been here a few times. We are always pleased. The staff is super friendly. Quick service! We have never had to wait very long. The food is great! I would recommend everyone to try it for them selves. I will definitely be coming back.

Both My hubby + I ordered the classic, over easy eggs, homefries + turkey sausage. Had to send eggs back twice because they were raw (completely clear in the center). Finally got passable eggs, homefries were soggy and overly buttery, some bacon bits in homefries (we don't eat pork). Toast was not toasted at all, looked more like bread. Turkey... More

It was very busy when we got there with my mother and 2 children (4 and 1.5). It wasnt really that long to get a table, approximately15 min. Drinks were order and served quite quickly. Our order was taken quite quickly as well. Food took quite awhile to come to table and occasionally there was an overwhelming smell of burnt... More

Ate here on a Saturday morning with my husband and 1 year old. The breakfast I had was possibly one of the best breakfasts I have ever had- and I will admit, I am never satisfied when I go to restaurants. I had the English muffin with ham and guacamole topped with eggs Benedict. It was so delicious. Husband had... More

Been loyal customer for many years. Seen staff come and go, seen few renovations and décor changes. Food is very good on most part. One thing that needs improvement is the meal substitutes. Substitutes used to be ok with the management, but not anymore. "The Egg and I" needs to understand that meal has to be adjusted to individuals needs... More

The menu is the same as the Egg and I in Stoney Creek. This store is in a strip mall, the dining room is far nicer than Stoney Creek. It's also a more laid back atmosphere. The staff were very pleasant and not rushing around. The food was quite good, although, like the other store somewhat greasy hash browns. The... More

If you want homemade food and great portions with the coffee that keeps coming this is the place! Very busy but I see that as a good sign. I like egg white omelettes and often they are then very small but not in this case. With the addition of yummy home fries and rye toast included I left stuffed. Any... More
