Not bad breakfast, but nothing to write home about. They don't take cards, so be sure to bring cash.

Everyone who works here is friendly. There is no cappuccino or Latte's served. Just good coffee for the bottomless mug. The food is spot on but not gourmet. There is often a several minute wait but the cheerful crowd and staff makes the wait an easy one. We go here often and just enjoy a good American breakfast Please remember... More

Today was our third visit to The Egg and I. We were there at 6:15 AM and had the place to ourselves. The service was good,the food hot and tasty. I added extras to my egg sandwich and it came out exactly as ordered. We look forward to having at least one breakfast here each time we return to Maine.

This place would be better served if they accepted debit and credit cards. The ATM inside the restaurant ran out of money and we had to find another one someplace else. When we got back, there was a 15 minute wait before we were seated. The food was decent and the waitstaff was attentive enough. Like I said, accepting credit/debit... More

Imagine someone cheerfully fixing you breakfast exactly as you want it. Eggs as you wish, sides as you want them, drinks as you request and quickly too. No wonder there are lines out front waiting to get in for breakfast. Go early and enjoy the specialties, which we're told are eggs Benedict, omelets any way, muffins. I had the poached... More

We ate breakfast twice at The Egg and I during our Ogunquit vacation. Delicious food, friendly fast service and affordable prices. What's not to love?

It was my first visit to The Egg & I in Wells Maine. There was a crowd waiting which was a hint that this was a special place and it proved to be true. We were warmly welcomed and service was prompt and friendly. The highlight was the delicious food....the best eggs benedict I have ever had. This destination is... More
