The food was very good, but the service was horrible. Waited ten minutes to get our ticket so we could leave, ridiculous because it was 11:30 and not busy!

My wife and I ate breakfast at this Egg on a Friday morning. We were seated and greeted immediately. Service was friendly. We were given coffee right away, but my coffee cup was dirty with crusted food on one side. I requested a clean cup which was delivered promptly with an apology. My wife had a frittata with egg and... More

Apparently there are not many choices in this town for breakfast. This was a pleasant surprise. They have an excellent gluten free menu with numerous options. It thrills me to find places that offer this. They will substitute for bread as well. I chose sliced tomatoes but got a side of fruit as well. I ordered the Athena scramble and... More

Went for a Sunday morning brunch with a group of 7 and had a short wait, but good service and the food was excellent. Busy place, so obviously quite popular. Would definitely go again.

We have been going to the Egg and I in Lincoln for a couple months now, and they definitely have the very best breakfast available in town. I have tried several items of the menu like the pancakes, omelets and waffles, but the best of all is their Stuffed French Toast. It is two huge peaces of french toast with... More

We were in Lincoln to visit our daughter and decided to go to Egg and I for breakfast on Easter morning. It seemed like a Perkins-style restaurant and was full, but not extremely busy. We watched many tables get their food and finish eating, and our meals had yet to arrive. We waited over an hour for our food and... More

I have been here for brunch twice now and I like it. The place is clean, the servers are knowledgeable and the food is great. My friend got the Wisconsin Scramble with toast. She said it was good and cheesy. I had french toast, eggs and bacon. All were cooked to my liking and delivered in a timely manner.

This place was very popular because there was a line to get into the restaurant. However, somehow, they were getting people in and out quickly. I had a skillet meal that was very tasty. The gal that waited on us was very friendly and attentive, even for being so busy. I was very happy with my experience at the Egg... More
