This place is a joke...we went there once, and frankly that was one too many times. The food is OK but if you want to feel like you're no longer part of the human species, this would be a good choice of restaurant. The screaming from fellow patrons gave me a splitting headache - what a zoo. I can't even remember anything about the service, which is unfortunate. I realize this review reflects more on the diners there than about the restaurant, but the restaurant staff seem to do nothing about the noise level - they probably figure this is acceptable behaviour in a breakfast place...

Save your money. There are other places, like Sunset Gril, which have decent breakfasts, and where you can actually enjoy your meal.

Comfort food in a relaxed small town diner atmosphere. This place is routinely jammed with regulars, so avoid the peak hours and enjoy!

The Egg and i has been around for a long time. We have eaten at this location and the one now closed on Hwy#20. I find that the pile of pre-cooked potatoes sitting by the grill is a bit off-putting. I worry about cleanliness and hygiene practices. Food is okay but just not impressed any longer with its food. Bathrooms are not great.
