A very bland breakfast. Ordered the Huevos Rancheros and found it to be almost flavorless. I don't know how you do that but they did. It's also got a very dirty looking atmosphere to it. Almost like a Denny's or Ihop but without the good food. The coffee was horrible as well. I wouldn't return for it.

They have good daily specials. One of the best items is the create your own omelet with rye. Consistent service and good quality food. Only open until 2 pm.

I can see why the Egg and I is #1 on Trip Advisor for Estes Park restaurants! I had the Veggie Benedict, loaded with asparagus, artichoke, mushrooms--delicious! My husband had the corned beef and eggs--also good! Great staff and food arrived quickly! Well visit here again!

We ate here every other morning for our week long stay. I say we ate here every other morning because we had leftovers every time we ate here due to the size of the portions. If you order any of the omelets or specialties you will have a hard time finishing the food! Just a great place to have coffee... More

Try the kale cooler, it sounds odd but it really is fantastic if you like fresh kiwi! The food and service were great

Found this place by coincidence, without knowing it was #1 rated in town! Ended up eating here everyday because the food was such a value. Good food, good coffee, and big portions (great before a hike!). Loved the cinnamon waffle winter special... mmmm.

Fast and friendly service. We had a table of 8 and we got right in. Waitress did an excellent job. I had the breakfast burrito. It was good. I might try something different if I were to return. My friends raved about the carrot smoothie.

Good solid service and good food. I love hash browns which they don't have but overall always pleased with the quality and price of the meal. Will not let you down.
