Little Egg was hoppin'

We went to the Lyndale location over the weekend for the first time. The service was great. Even though it was packed in there, our server was on the ball with the coffee, juice, food, and the jokes. Even the bus-boys were on need to wait for any refills.

Food was quick and really tasty. Even though I live on the other side of the city, I want to try the ""Big Egg"" now in St. Paul.

Great atmosphere, food prepared really well, I have never been disappointed with any breakfast item

Great atmosphere, food always prepared really well, I have never been disappointed with any breakfast item on their menu. The waitresses take alot of pride in doing things ""right"". For a great breakfast experience, go to the ""EGG and I"".

Consistent poor service

While the Egg & I offers a decent breakfast selection, they can't seem to fix their poor service. Over the years I've become used to having to get my own silverware, or sweetener, or highchair. Today my wife had to walk across the restaurant to pour herself a fresh cup of coffee, all the while our waitress sat and gabbed with her coworkers. We must have waited for 10 minutes with an empty cup (and they're glass cups).

The issues doesn't seem to be lack of staff, they always seem to have plenty. Our server today only appeared to have two tables. Today I had enough, and left my first $0.01 tip of my lifetime. Needless to say, I won't be going back.

Consistently Good

Great Breakfast, Efficient service, and our waitress had a little sass to her that we like, unlike the waitrons of other places. We look forward to breakfast here every chance we get. The seat yourself thing is kind of iffy but the staff have it worked out pretty well. Brilliant!

There are far-better places for breakfast

I have visited The Egg and I a few times and have always left disappointed. Compared to other breakfast places in Minneapolis, the portions are small, over-priced, and not particularly well prepared. On my last visit, I was conservative and just went with a standard bacon/eggs/hashbrowns plate. The hashbrowns were soggy, the bacon tasted a bit off and looked to be nothing more than the cheapest brand from the grocery store. For 7.95, not a bargain, either.

If this were the only choice in Uptown, it might be passable, but there are several others that are far better. I would not recommend the Egg and I.

A great breakfast place

As an out of town guest, finding a good breakfast is of the utmost importance to me. The Egg & I hooked me up famously with a nicely-prepared breakfast of generous portions. The coffee was good and the waitress took the time to shine her pretty face on us. Can't say a bad thing about this place.

Best Breakfast in the Twin Cities

We frequent the Egg & I. Never had bad service, food is always wonderful. I highly recommend the Eggs Comodore (I absolutely love their hollandaise sauce).

Disappointing. Server brought blueberry pancakes when blue corn was ordered. Very noisy, very crouded. I had a hard time understanding the long line waiting, and cheering as we left. Maybe they have a secret password to get the better food, but my order of eggs and toast was nothing to cheer for and the potatoes were dry and over cooked. The French toast looked good.
