My husband & I had a late breakfast at The Egg & I at 70th & A in Lincoln, NE. We were beyond pleased with the food, the service, & the friendly staff. The whole wheat bread was the best I've ever tasted, the Blackberry...jam a tasty option, the bacon nice & crispy, & every change I requested was happily presented. Several servers checked on us, always with a smile. How refreshing! We shall return!More

Wanted to take one of my sons going to college in Lincoln out for breakfast, but wasn't familiar with the area. Did a google search and found this restaurant. Well I hit a home run! It opened earlier than most, at 7am, and was very...pleasant, clean, and nicely decorated and arranged. It was bright and cheery. The food options are fantastic, with every type of omlete, pancake, waffle, health, unhealthy, but all delicious by our generous sampling. I very highly recommend this place and will go back when I am in town again. I'm just a bit grateful there's not one near my house...I'm supposed to be LOSING weight.More

The club sandwich had so much oil on bread and the cobb salad had grey meat. Not appealing for us. Biscuits and gravy with egg egg way to under cooked and greasy.

I'm afraid that the Egg and I has been slipping in the past year. It used to be the best place in Lincoln for breakfast, brunch or lunch, but since the management has changed, the service is really dropping off. The food is still excellent,...but the service is not. We waited to minutes to be seated, and had specifically asked for a table for six. We were taken to a booth, that almost could hold four, then another 15 minutes. The waitress was very good, but we waited over 1/2 hour for our food. There are too many other places in Lincoln for a meal following church on Sundays. This drop in service has happened several times and we decided to give them one or try.More

My son and I stop by at least once a week. The prices are great and the food is amazing. It is difficult to decide what to order because everything is fresh and delicious. They close at 2 so make sure you get there early!...We have never been disappointed.More

I love breakfast and could eat it all day. This, this is a very good option for me. We went there as they have a private room. The room was cold but they accommodated. The waitress mixed up who ordered what (there were only 9...of us). Things like water weren’t remembered. One person didn’t get their meal for another 4 minutes or more. Someone needed silverware - and waited while the food got cold. I’ve waited tables. It’s important work. Don’t mess up orders! The music in the room was loud. We requested it be turned off or lowered. Why is on and Loud a default position when they’ve asked for a private room?More

Oh Egg and I, I try you, and I enjoy you, but there is always something missing. This location like others is friendly and busy. Good food but seems like it should be a little better.

We were introduced to this franchise thanks to a recommendation from someone at our hotel when we asked about a good spot for Sunday breakfast. We arrived at a good time when we could still get a booth: people were lined up waiting as we...left. We each had the Hiker’s Benedict, but the menu has lots of options. Our server was helpful and friendly-- we'll be back!More

Delicious breakfast. Special cinnamon chip waffle was amazing with cinnamon butter. Eggs were perfectly done and smoked bacon was perfect. Conflicted about the ranch flavored potatoes, but service was good and place was very cozy. Would return. A little pricey for the amount of food...on the plate, but it tasted good.More
