Always Wonderful

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.

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

Good breakfast, quite a lot of food; service is decent. Atmosphere is nothing special but food makes up for it.

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
