My husband was so impressed by the menu. I would recommend the Hazelnut Coffee as it was absolutely amazing.

Bland and boring dishes passed off as breakfast. On every occasion that I have eaten here, I have been disappointed. The Falstaff is efficient likelihood, no personal interaction with the guests is allowed by the management.

The Egg and I is another of those places in EP that is always busy for a reason....great product and great service! This is my "go to" place for breakfast or lunch dates. I love their menu and you can find almost anything you would want on it. My favorite is the Greek Frittata for breakfast (and enough to take... More

Skip the pretentious atmosphere, bad food, and bad service at the Stanley and head to the Egg and I. Impeccable service by Josh, delicious food, nice atmosphere, reasonable prices. Best omelet ever!!!

Visited Estes Park in February 2015. This is a GREAT place for breakfast. We ate there twice because it was so good! Staff could not have been nicer. Be sure to try the eggs benedict - that was superb! Not too pricey, but very enjoyable. They offer traditional breakfast dishes and lots of non-traditional ones that all looked tempting. Service...

Our waiter was awesome. Very friendly and fast. He was from the Ukraine and we enjoyed talking with him about his home country. The blueberry pancake is freaking awesome! My wife mistook a lemon slice for a piece of squash so I had dinner AND and show, lol. The staff here were very friendly and we would definitely eat here... More

We had a lovely young waitress who knew everything about the menu. After flip flopping a few times(pun intended), I ordered the pancake flapper with scrambled eggs and bacon. It was on the table very quickly and perfect. The hazelnut coffee is excellent. Overall, affordable and delicious. The same dish in Massaequa would be about $3 more. We ate there... More

The staff at Egg and I did a great job of welcoming and serving a large group of us. My eggs were perfectly prepared and served. Coffee was hot. Juice was cold. Not fancy. Not pretentious. Just a great welcome and good food.
