I loved reading this! Thanks so much, Ronald!! We hope to see you again soon! P.S. If your wife loves the Veggie Benedict, you both have to try the Hiker's Benedict at some point! Both of those are two of my all-time favorites​! More

We visited The Egg & I two days in a row for breakfast and it was a wonderful experience both times. The food is so fresh and tasty along with offering a huge variety of choices on the menu. We had two different servers and they were both fantastic!

We had the soup and 1/2 sandwich specials. Very good salads and the cheese & broccoli soup and chicken tortilla soups were very good. We enjoyed being there during the off season.

A little pricey for breakfast food, but it was very good and you can walk there while shopping in town. Fast and friendly service.
