I have eaten at the Egg & I many times over the years. This time, the food was not up to par and the price of a cup of tea or coffee surprised us (2.95). Also additional charges for peanut butter (.45) and English Muffin instead of whole wheat toast ( .85). The scrambled eggs were somewhat dry.The bacon and hash browns were cool and not freshly cooked. The service was good. They do not have wifi.

The place was full, the waitress gave prompt and cheery service, and the food arrived quickly and the omelet special was very good.

Nice little diner with great food. I had a sourdough kamikaze pancake and the #2 skillet breakfast. pancake was good altho not much for sourdough flavor. very pleased with the breakfast skillet. The #2 has mixed veggies and American fries and two eggs. The variety of veggies is much better then your standard green pepper and onion mix. This one has in addition to that broccoli, tomato,zucchini...prob other ones I'm forgetting. The American fries were more scalloped instead of cubed which I liked. Our server was excellent as well. Overall I'm very happy with my visit and would go back again even without the Groupon

The Egg and I has always been on the top of my favorite breakfast places in the Twin Cities. In the last few years the food and service have slipped from Exceptional to Average. Don't understand why the owners would let this happen. It is obvious that the restaurant doesn't have the business it once had. I miss the old Egg and I.
