Had breakfast at this location for the first time and it was fantastic. It is a bit expensive but the portions are big enough, service is good and quick. The staff is friendly and if you can't find anything you like on this menu, you belong at McDonald's. The kids had pancakes and loved them. We had egg meals (I... More

I have been spending 3 weeks or so every summer in Estes Park for 11 years, never ate here before but I have seen the busy parking lot. Woke up hungry for an omelette and was there at 0700 hours. I ordered an egg white omelette with turkey sausage, Swiss cheese and avocado. It was outstanding. I see what all... More

We were greeted with a smile and seated promptly. Our kids loved the dinosaur buckets and I love the omelet. Be prepared to walk; like many places in Estes Park, the parking is scarce.

The best thing about this place is that it opens early. The breakfast was ok considering greasy eggs, a couple of uncooked or undercooked potatoes, bizarre tasting turkey sausage. Service was ok. Overall it served the purpose filling a hole.

We loved this place and went there every morning before our hikes. It does get very crowded so go earlier, before 8. Service and food was great!

II am highly allergic to wheat, so anytime I can have gluten-free toast with my breakfast, it's amazing. I had the Athena Scramble, which was tasty and unique. Everyone in our party of four received their meals quick, hot, and perfectly prepared! We ate at Molly B's yesterday, and this spot was even more amazing. And Molly B was no... More

Went for breakfast and enjoyed every dish. Got there at 7am and were seated immediately. We had biscuits and gravy, the Texan steak and eggs plate, and the Coloradan scramble. The food tasted very fresh and was quick to arrive. Would definitely go back if in the area again.

The Egg & I has nailed the PROCESS of serving breakfast. In spite of the long line waiting outside, the staff pleasantly and courteously kept guests moving without creating an air of being rushed. The dining area was unremarkable except for the very good cleanliness. Our waitress was extremely friendly and helpful. The food was very good, but not great.

Everything was absolutely outstanding! I need to say no more except you need to go! The scrambled eggs were the best I've ever had including my own!
