Best breakfast in Tyler

I have eaten at the Egg and I on four occasions. Each time, the food has been quite good and the service excellent. On this most recent visit, I ordered the raspberry granola whole grain pancake. It was excellent. The eggs were cooked to perfection and the bacon and sausage were both tasty. My... read more

Anything you want plus things you don't usually see in Tyler. Service was great. Will go again. Great green chile! Love the ranch potatoes they serve.

My first time here. Such a large selection to choose from! Egg white omelets, Frittatas, and more! Chicken apple sausage is a must try!!! The Greek is my new favorite. So different than the tired old Denny's or IHOP menu. Give it a try, you will be like me. AWESOME!!!

Went here for lunch on a lark - besides the full breakfast menu that is always available, there were lots of sandwich and soup options. I had at least 5 choices that I had to skip.

Whenever we want a great breakfast in a relaxing setting we choose The Egg and I in Tyler. It is located in Bergfeld Plaza, an older mall-type setting just off South Broadway, which is about 2 miles north of the Tyler south loop. It is only minutes from shopping and is what we call the "local's breakfast club". It's a... More

A bunch of waitresses at work but very few actually working. They were not busy when we got there. Waited and waited for a waitress to come take our drink order. I was finally able to flag one down and get some service. She was rude and hateful. I'm sorry you don't like your job. Took our order but didn't... More

Interesting and tasty menu like Texas Skillet, Crab cake Benedict, Bacon and Cheddar stuffed waffles with eggs also homemade soups, salads and sandwiches. Always fresh tasting but have never gotten out of there for 2 people - entree and coffee or tea for less than $25 without the tip.

We dine at this Egg and I often as it's convenient to medical facilities we use. It's always crowded which is good for them but not so much for the diner if waiting staff is to busy to give adequate attention. The staff is very friendly and attentive as much as possible but once the check has been given... Two... More
