Great place to grab breakfast

My husband and another couple were visiting Maine for the Columbus Day weekend and ate breakfast here before heading home. The food was good and the service was good as well.

We had breakfast here while in Maine this summer. It was amazing. The hash was to DIE for! My granddaughter who is two just loved it and the staff was very nice (and patient)! It is busy, and you will probably have to wait, but the efficient staff keeps things moving along and besides - you want to get on... More

Husband had a western cheese omelet and I had veggie omelet. He thought his was just ok but I really liked mine so that averaged out. Home fries were really just chunks of cooked potatoes - not all that exciting. Coffee was strong but good. Server was sweet but a bit slow even as the restaurant started to clear out.... More

Had a great breakfast several times and a lunch fish and chips that was very good. Usually very busy and a quick wait. Every worker very fast but nice.

I wouldn't go back, I found it pricey for not being wowed by the food. The quantity was there I just didn't feel the quality was there.

This place claims "Best of Maine" If this is the best then don't go out to eat in Maine! The coffee is the worst we had. looked around at other diners and few were taking re fills. Breakfast was greasy eggs and nothing outstanding but the high cost .

I almost hate to say how much I love this restaurant for fear that it will become even more popular! Seriously, I can't understand why anyone would be dissatisfied with the portions, quality and service at this restaurant. My husband and I make it a point to eat here at least twice when we're up that way. The eggs Benedict... More

Servers were excellent. Food was served quickly and was just as I ordered and was delicious. When paying my bill, I received 10% off for being there early (it was 7:00am).

In Wells for a girl's weekend. We had breakfast at the Egg and I. The raisin bread french toast was amazing! The service was quick, efficient and friendly.

My husband and I have been to The Egg and I maybe 6 times total. I will admit the food is pretty tasty but each time we have been the service leaves something to be desired. On our most recent visit a couple weeks ago we were able to be seated pretty quickly but then waited almost 15 minutes for... More
