Visited after dropping our son off at UNK and were pleasantly surprised by the array of healthy options as well as traditional breakfast fare. Each of the breakfast items we ordered was served hot and prepared as ordered. I think it may be a seasonal item but the pineapple tonic was excellent. Service was prompt and friendly, we will definitely... More

Nice menu with the old standby breakfasts and some wonderful healthier alternatives. All were reasonable priced. I had a Berry Cheesecake French Toast (skipped the powdered sugar and syrup.) It was delicious and had lots of fresh berries. The service was excellent. The place was clean and the atmosphere pleasant.

We eat at the “Egg and I” now and then in our home town, but this was a visit to a location while we were traveling. We arrived about 9:30 on a Wednesday morning. The waitress seemed a bit distracted the entire time we were in the restaurant. The drinks were slow to arrive and the food was slower to... More

We ate here for breakfast on a Sunday morning. Oh my goodness! Everything was fabulous from my entree to my juice. Service was great. Can't wait to go back and try the lunch selections.

We wanted a big breakfast to finish off our week long vacation and this was the perfect place. They have great standard breakfast choices as well as unique creations that are wonderful. We had heard there was often a wait so we arrived about 10 minutes before opening. When the servers and manager saw us waiting outside in our car,... More
