Reviewed 12 September 2013

We had a wonderful breakfast outside. Service was really terrific and the food was prepared just as ordered. They have a really good menu - not lacking anything.

“Great coffee, healthful food”
Reviewed 12 September 2013

We go out to breakfast a lot - socializing there instead of dinner - about once a week and often choose The Egg & I on Leetsdale & Holly. Great place for folks who like a selection of coffees in a regular restaurant - South American Blend, Rainforest Bold (from Alliance Certified farms), Hazelnut, Seasonal Blend, and Decaf - served in bottomless pitchers. The egg dishes are non-greasy, with fresh ingredients. Potatoes are ranch style, moist and flavorful; bread choices for toast are excellent, or you may order an English muffin, regular or raisin. What I like is that you can substitute fruit or tomatoes for potatoes, and the fruit cup is generous. Though this restaurant runs about $1 more per breakfast entree than most restaurants, you get solid value for that exchange, and - as someone else pointed out - they give you a senior discount at the register, which brings the price down for some of us. We have yet to find a better restaurant in Denver that pleases all of our family members' breakfast tastes, ranging from meaty to allergies and vegan. Can accommodate large parties, especially if you call ahead.

“Great breakfasts”
Reviewed 8 September 2013

This is an excellent place for breakfast and lunch. They don't serve dinner. Service is great, people are friendly and they have the most amazing Chile Rellanos and frittatas. They serve turkey sausage, as well as pork. Cost is reasonable and they give Sr.'s a discount.

“Great food, good service, vegetarian friendly!”
Reviewed 25 March 2013

My husband and I have been there 3 times, and it get better and better! The food is awesome, vegetarian friendly, and they have great healthy options too. Our server today was the best. He was one of those charming, yet goofy guys. He was friendly, made jokes, and knew his stuff. The food and service was great for the value. Try the veggie hash!

“Great breakfasts”
Reviewed 2 November 2012

I go to the Egg & I a couple times a month with either friends or family. The staff is always courteous, service is always excellent and I love the food. It's open for breakfast and lunch and serves a vast array of egg dishes, pancakes, waffles, cereal, salads and sandwiches. I've never had anything that wasn't great. I especially love the chili rellanos - with the red sauce, but their frittatas and salads are great too. They have excellent coffee.
