Got a quick bite to eat here. The coffee was fantastic and our server was just wonderful, so kind and accommodating. They didn't have chocolate chip pancakes. That's the only bad thing I can say. Otherwise we all enjoyed our food

Great food. Really fast service; I have rarely seen the food come out so quickly. Friendly staff. Parking lot out front.

It's a sorry indication of the reviews on all the restaurants in Estes Park that this ranked #1. It was a normal breakfast place, excellent service, food was good, plenty of blueberry sauce for pancake. Prices typical, not great. What all the fuss is about escapes me. Better than Dennys, but Overrated as # 1 in Estes Park.

My husband and I went to The Egg and I yesterday morning to have breakfast. I was very curious about this restaurant because it has such great reviews on Tripadvisor (it is even ranked #1!). But I was very disappointed because it was like all the breakfast places, very simple and ordinary. The staff was very smiling, and welcoming. On... More

We have been to this restaurant a few times over the past couple of years and have always been pleased with the food served there. Most recently, we ate there on a Saturday morning and it was a little hectic... Otherwise, it's all pretty traditional breakfast food and they have an amazing hazelnut coffee, for you coffee drinkers. If you... More

Based on it being the #1 trip advisor restaurant in Estes Park I was expecting something more unique. I was hoping/expecting fresh and unique ingredients but instead it was just an average breakfast diner. I'm assuming it just has a cult following as a breakfast spot in a resort town. I ordered the blueberry wheat pancake and honestly it was... More

Ate at The Egg & I twice during my first visit to Estes Park. The food and service was great. Even though there was a slight wait, we were seated quickly and the staff was very friendly.

This place is usually very busy so beware. We stay in Estes a few times a year and always eat here. Service is great, food is great, and they even give you a cup of coffee to go! I recommend this place. Especially and of the eggs benedict
