Been wanting to try this place for a while . Got up this morning and drove about 45 minutes for breakfast -- and it was worth the drive . We may make this a regular weekend breakfast spot in the future . Everything was cooked to perfection .

We ate here with our granddaughter and her husband. We all found the food to be very good. Service was quite good. Wait staff was attentive but not overly so. In addition to breakfast, we were trying to enjoy a last visit before they headed back home several hours away. Fortunately, that was not interrupted, while all of our needs... More

All three in my party had breakfast items. Food was served fast and all liked the crispy English muffins. Plenty to choice from the menu. A good place to enjoy the AM in Tyler.

This is a chain restaurant, and as such, we weren't expecting too much during our brief visit to Tyler. But like all good breakfast places on a Sunday morning, there was a bit of a wait when we got there at around 10am, so expectations rose! It took about 30mins or so until we got seated, but the free coffee... More

Have eaten here many times and it's always very good. This resturant has many choices, I've had both breakfast and lunch and it's always very good. Nice place with good service and food, I'll be back!

We were travelling through Tyler and ate breakfast at the Egg and I. Arrived at 9 am Sunday morning, no wait. Excellent service. Husband enjoyed pineapple and coconut pancakes, and plain old American breakfast, over easy eggs and bacon were delicious.

Stopped in for breakfast after fasting labs at my physician's office last month. It did not disappoint. Ordered the blueberry pancake, and it was so large it hung over the plate. The pancake is whole wheat and is served with warm syrup and blueberry compote. Delicious! It is served with 2 eggs (any style) and either bacon or sausage. The... More

Brought my son and Mom for breakfast on a Saturday morning. I had the two eggs, bacon and potatoes. Coffee and juice. Mom had waffle and egg. It costs $26 and food was alright but not very interesting. Waiter was really good! I wanted to be impressed but just okay.
