The breakfasts are all really good and plentiful and love the sandwiches. Tastes like homemade. Good place to have a meeting in their separate area.

Egg and I has a good breakfast menu and the lunches are pretty good also. The only thing about this restaurant is it gets pricey. I like the Colorado scramble. Only thing that I have had that was "weird" was corn beef hash was not what I am used to.

We enjoy eating here, it's a cozy atmosphere, usually doesn't take too long for your food and generally they're receptive to "special orders".

This restaurant a part of a chain. It is located in a strip mall. That being said , it is a delightful space that is charmingly decorated. Food is wonderful, especially since they have healthy options such as juiced drinks. I had a harvest hash breakfast which was chocked full of delicious vegetables. My husband had a hardier breakfast, skillet... More

Visited after dropping our son off at UNK and were pleasantly surprised by the array of healthy options as well as traditional breakfast fare. Each of the breakfast items we ordered was served hot and prepared as ordered. I think it may be a seasonal item but the pineapple tonic was excellent. Service was prompt and friendly, we will definitely... More

Nice menu with the old standby breakfasts and some wonderful healthier alternatives. All were reasonable priced. I had a Berry Cheesecake French Toast (skipped the powdered sugar and syrup.) It was delicious and had lots of fresh berries. The service was excellent. The place was clean and the atmosphere pleasant.
