Great Place for breakfast

My wife and I always eat breakfast at the Egg & I when we are in Estes Park. Located near the visitors center, the breakfast offerings are very good and large servings. My wife and I always share a plate and have more than enough (we do not have large appetites). Restaurant is always clean and the... read more

I have eaten at The Egg and I in both Greeley and Estes Park. The food has always been good. The servings are plentiful and my daughter and I shared their strawberry and banana waffle that included 2 eggs and bacon or sausage. We ate there a second time on the trip because it was so good. The kids liked... More

Food was good, portions were big, but apparently this is where most everyone goes to eat breakfast, because they were crowded and people were waiting in line. But it's worth the wait. The pancakes, french toast, and omelettes were all delicious!

We got to the restaurant mid morning and had about a 20 minute wait. But once we were seated the service was impeccable. The portions of the food were just right for breakfast and the taste was what you'd expect from this type of restaurant.

We chose this restaurant based on Trip Advisor reviews, and we were not disappointed! The food and service were excellent, and the portions were generous. We had omelets, pancakes, and bacon, and everything was fabulous! I would HIGHLY recommend this restaurant for breakfast!

Best breakfast I ever had. Eggs Benedict were out of this world. Service was great. There was a line of people when we showed I o, but the wait was only 10 minutes.

Had breakfast at The Egg & I and it was delicious. The blueberry pancakes were made with fresh blueberries - Yum. The biscuits and gravy were really good too. The sausage in the gravy was a little spicy which I loved.

If you love breakfast, this is the place. I stopped here both days on my visit in town and brought my friends the second time. The blueberry pancake breakfast is served with two eggs and choice of meat. Hands down the best, and I mean the best, blueberry wheat pancake I have ever had. It is served with blueberry compote...
