Close to an IHop. Simple, predictable. Meal was good and service was quick. Great little place to grab a quick breakfast while in downtown Estes Park.

Good little breakfast place. Breakfast sandwich with the bacon was really good. Would recommend it for breakfast any day. Wish they had one in Dallas!

We ate here on two occasions: both breakfasts. The food was awesome with very generous portions. The service was also amazing, with the people being so friendly! Definatley, not your average Perkins sort of experience...

Even with a party of 8 and 2 small children, we were seated very quickly on a Sunday morning, and everyone loved what they ordered. The wait staff was excellent, the dark coffee was exceptional, and it was an overall pleasant experience.

We had lunch here in early August, around 2:00 in the afternoon. The prices were reasonable and our sandwiches were tasty. The wait was long, however--even to simply place our order. Other than that, a good place to eat.

Good service, decent food. The only problem that I have with places that serve breakfast is that if I ask for eggs, I want eggs, not a powdery runny slop, so unless you order your eggs over easy, expect fake imitation.

The food here was very good and so was the service. They were very accommodating with substitutions for our Gluten-free diets.

On the east side of downtown, this was another great breakfast stop. Very very fast service and great selection. Lot's of locals eating here also. Substitutions were not a problem. If the pre-packaged hotel continental breakfast will just not do, this is a great alternative.

We've eaten at Egg and I in other towns and always had good luck with it. The Estes Park restaurant was no exception. We had only a short wait for a table; the staff is very quick at turnaround and the managers keep a close eye out for special needs. The server spotted the fact that the kitchen had put... More

Every time I'm in Estes Park I make a stop. This restaurant is VERY kid friendly - they bring little activity boxes to the tables to keep your little ones entertained. I really enjoy the variety of their menu. I always get a fruit cup - its so fresh, sweet and healthy!! It seems like they have something for everyone... More
