Thus place us just like an IHop with processed-like omlettes. It was okay, but overpriced for what it is. I believe it must be a local chain since I saw an Egg and I in the commercial district in Portland. Originally I assumed it was a yocal local diner. In the summer, the Parking lot is full of MA plates,... More

Food was ok, you don't get a lot for breakfast for the price that they charge. Very disappointing, we were a party of 4 and felt like a sardine crushed into a pan.

We timed it right getting here at 6:30 one morning because shortly after we arrived and got our order in a bus pulled up, then another, and by the time we left a third leaving the place packed. There is a parking lot across the street in the Lobster Pot that one parked but the other was tucked behind some... More

Year after year we dine at the Egg and I for breakfast. Our vacation takes us to varied restaurants and breakfast places are important. We enjoy the generous menu, each family member likes different foods and are always pleased with choices. Waiting in line for a seat sometimes is alright because It's clean and satisfying. We'll be back.

I stopped in with one other for a breakfast together. Right from the beginning our waitress rarely saw us and I was left needing a drink and cream cheese to go with my bagel the whole time. We never saw her again. We paid at the front and she was gone from the beginning. Laura, our waitress was nice at... More

Excellent service in a clean and comfortable environment. Service is fast and friendly. We always make it a point to go here on our way back home. The Mexican omelet is fantastic! I suggest you get there early as the property fills up quickly with a long wait list. The only improvement I can see is stronger coffee!

The food was very well prepared and the wait staff was very pleasant. Food was good and the restaurant was clean. The portions were adequate but if you a big eater you may want to order extra. The food was good but I may look elsewhere for a different experience the next time I am in Wells. I have no... More

It's a very small place with limited parking. The food is OK but the home fries are terrible. The service is very good as is the coffee. I'll look around for another breakfast spot, as home fries are my favorite part of the meal
