We dined at the Egg & I on Saturday and Sunday on our 4 day visit to Maine. Both times we were seated within a few minutes and our waitress was to our table shortly after with the menus. What delicious choices there were on the menu! There is definitely something for everyones tastes. I would recommend absolutely everything on the menu, as our table of 5 had something different each day. YUM YUM! I don't think we have ever had such a great, relaxing experience at a breakfast restaurant before and we will definitely be returning to try more things from their wonderful menu! A special shout out to the owners of this restaurant for doing a fantastic job in the appearance and the service of their establishment!

We were blown away by this restaurant. What a great experience we had! We noticed that our server, and others were diligently working to feed a hungry Sunday morning crowd. The kitchen was quiet, yet fast and efficient, the food was excellent. We saw the owner and manager making continuous rounds of both the dining room, kitchen area, and chipping in when needed. The entire staff was paying close attention to the needs of the customers and making sure that everyone was having a great meal. We noticed several things that we feel stand out. For soft drinks, they bring a glass and an extra carafe of your favorite drink, no need to wait for a refill...same with coffee and there was enough creamer for the second cup. One staff member handled all the money transactions, which is much more sanitary than each server handling their own. They offer a free meeting room, with a large HD tv, and free wifi. We also noticed several other things that make a difference....the manager meeting us at the front and asking us about our visit, the owner taking the time to talk with us about our breakfast experience, and overall, a nice warm welcoming feel of the restaurant in general. It is nice decorated, and extremely clean. I wish we lived closer than three hours, as we would surely be regular customers.

This chain is new to Maine, but has brought a fresh, wonderful menu with breakfast items to die for. I was blown away by the Tex-mex items like the Mexican Omelet and the Chicken Chili breakfast plate. My wife couldn't believe the Maine flavor that had been added to this western chain with a lobster omelet. Every item we had in two visits, one with friends was above average in size and flavor. I'd stop anywhere to have breakfast with them.

Just came back from our annual trip to the South Portland Me area, and happened upon this little spot in a strip mall...we stopped by on a Sunday morning for breakfast, on our way back home...We were a little bit leary since no one else has reviewed this place, and the parking lot was not full, but we were pleasantly surprised... looks like they haven't been open for business very long...The service for coffee/tea was a bit slow, but the waitress made sure we knew it was on its way. Breakfast arrived quickly..everything came as ordered and was quite good. Not the best breakfast we ever ate, but good. Decor was nice and the place was very clean. Prices were average. We would definitely try it again.
