Glad we weren't starving

My husband and I have been to The Egg and I maybe 6 times total. I will admit the food is pretty tasty but each time we have been the service leaves something to be desired. On our most recent visit a couple weeks ago we were able to be seated pretty quickly but then waited almost 15 minutes for... read more

This place claims "Best of Maine" If this is the best then don't go out to eat in Maine! The coffee is the worst we had. looked around at other diners and few were taking re fills. Breakfast was greasy eggs and nothing outstanding but the high cost .

I almost hate to say how much I love this restaurant for fear that it will become even more popular! Seriously, I can't understand why anyone would be dissatisfied with the portions, quality and service at this restaurant. My husband and I make it a point to eat here at least twice when we're up that way. The eggs Benedict... More

Servers were excellent. Food was served quickly and was just as I ordered and was delicious. When paying my bill, I received 10% off for being there early (it was 7:00am).

In Wells for a girl's weekend. We had breakfast at the Egg and I. The raisin bread french toast was amazing! The service was quick, efficient and friendly.

We went to the Egg and I for breakfast the first day of our vacation and liked it so much we went back each day. That is very unusual for us because we enjoy trying different places to eat. The food was good, the portions were fine, and the staff was very friendly and efficient and our food always came... More

Been here many times when in the area. Great selection of breakfast, Bob's hash is excellent. Don't let the line outside scare you away, they move fast don't rush your eating. Food is brought quickly. I don't understand the negative comments, food has always been cooked well, served quickly and great service. Considering this is a summer tourist town, service... More

My husband and I visited "The Egg and I" on Friday, October 3, 2014 for the first time. Nice place and the waitress was wonderful. Can't remember her name, a tall, thin woman with dark hair. We both ordered the "Bob's Very Special" breakfast for $10.99. It came with 2 eggs, potatoes, toast and hash. I had coffee and hubby... More

Bob's special hash was great; hash browns very good (ask to have them put onions in them) and the biscuit and gravy was very very tasty. Would go back next time we are in town. Our server was very nice and helpful and always available when we needed something.

Finally we got eggs over easy with the yolk not hard cooked. I had the double blueberry pancakes: filled with blueberries plus a warm blueberry compote on the side, whipped butter and a warm blended syrup. The coffee was good and Bob's special corned beef was really good. Service was great.
