I have breakfast every Thursday at Egg & I. Why? First off - the staff is friendly and over the years have come to be like family. Second, though I rarely order the omelets, when I do they are great. Their breakfast specials are a bargain. If I can just make one criticism, the oatmeal leaves a lot to be desired.
For lunch, think more like late breakfast or good yummy greasy spoon. I love the Rueben, although it is nothing like I would expect in a New York deli.
Overall, it feels like home and is very affordable.
