I've been to The Egg and I restaurants many times in Boulder and near Louisville. I've grown to know reliably fresh and delicious food from this small chain. This was my first time trying the one in Estes, and it didn't disappoint! Just what I was hoping for food-wise, and the staff was great. A no-brainer!

Always wonderful sunrise chili rellenos ! Actually everything I've had here is awesome! Ranch potatoes are the best! And I brought some of their hot sauce home.

When we came in we were informed there might be a wait. It was short, and the owners of the establishment were ready to help everyone get seated as soon as possible. Our waiter was excellent.

I'm not a fan of chain breakfast places, but I was very happy with the service and food here. The waffles and french toast were great, and the biscuits and gravy were just what I was hoping for.

We were looking for a quaint, local diner to have breakfast before entering RMNP, and we happened upon the Egg & I. The outside is more "chain" than quaint, but I'm so glad we gave it a try. The food was excellent and the coffee frequently filled :) They have healthy choice options, which are excellent. The service was very... More

The Egg & I is a chain restaurant ~ ate there once just to see how it was ~ reminded me of a Perkins ~ food was well presented but extremely salty. On the weekends, there is usually a wait to get in ~ not sure if they take reservations.

A sister store of the one in Loveland. Generous and creative breakfasts for the health conscious as well as the not so health fixated. Excellent service. Good seating.

Stopped by here for breakfast on the way into RMNP for the day. Coffee was good, service was fast and food was delicious and filling! I had the viva la French toast and it was fabulous! My hubby had a very tasty omelet. We would definitely return again!
