Breakfast during tourist season Estes Park, CO

Real simply you don't have a million choices in Estes Park for breakfast and since we don't have an Ihop or Denny's here this is the equivalent. I realize it is hard to screw up breakfast so most breakfast restaurants are fairly good. The difference is how quickly you get seated and how good the... read more

The service was fantastic, the wait was short, and the food was delicious. Despite the myriad options near us, we ate multiple times here because we knew how good it would be.

I came here with my best friend a few years back when I was travelling through the states. It was by far one of the best breakfast's I've ever had. I would recommend the Wisconsin Scramble, if it's still on the menu anyway!

My husband was in the mood and I wanted a great salad. We both were totAlly satisfied. My chopped salad had tons of stuff in it, prepared just how I wanted. Service was great too.

Every time we come to Estes we grab breakfast here. It's not like any other Egg & I we've eaten at. It's by far the best! The food is always fabulous and the staff is super friendly and helpful. They had friendly conversations with our kids and brought special toys to the table for them to play with. Without me... More

The Egg & I is one of our favorite places to eat. The food is fresh and the service great. Raspberry waffles are great. The omelets are fantastic, especially the bacon & mushroom. The Hikers breakfast is delicious with asparagus.

We had to wait in line for about 20 minutes before we were seated but given it was a Sunday morning in Estes Park, it could've been worse. I ordered some type of Colorado scramble with a side of pancakes (instead of English muffin, add $3). Glad I ordered the pancakes because although the scramble was good, there wasn't very... More
