“Best Breakfast Lunch and Diner are great too!”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

I have been going to The Egg and I in Ancaster and Hamilton for years. I LOVE the Breakfast! Large portions nicely placed on the plate and delicious. The service is quick the people are so friendly. How they keep up when it is so busy is amazing and keep everything so clean! Really great. Honestly, i don't know how anyone could write a bad review... SOUR GRAPES I guess.
I recommend The Egg and I to all my family and friends all the time and they LOVE IT!
Thanks, Sally

“Great food, fast”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

We went to the Egg & I for breakfast twice this weekend, both times we received our meals within 10 min. They are always refilling you coffee, the food was good and the service was great. We will be going back.

“Good stop for Brekky”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

A typical basic breakfast menu with generous helpings of everything one probably shouldn't eat for breakfast every day but once in a while is fine. Service is prompt and friendly; dinner offerings can vary, depending on who is doing the cooking that day.

“Good Food”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

The Egg & I 1242 Highway 53 WE L9G 3K9 Ancaster

There are 3 different locations for this restaurant and I went to the one in Ancaster. On the way to Brantford the restaurant is a popular place for all day breaky. It has a bright clean décor and the menu has all the favourites on it. I ordered the Eggs Bene and it was made with peameal bacon. The spuds were almost like fried mash, and tasted good. I have had the spuds before and it is the way they make them at the Egg. All the food was properly cooked and served hot. The coffee was good and you get extra refills. Good service and a smile; I’ll go back.

Nearby are the usual shopping centres and in Brantford attractions include the Royal Chapel of the Mohawk, Canadian Military Heritage Museum and the Grand River Conservation Area. If you’re a cyclist the Hamilton to Brantford Rail Trail is worth checking out.
