The Egg I Am Menu

Sorry, We are updating this restaurant menu details.

  • Rich S.

    Decent breakfast chow, in a nice setting coupled w/ friendly service. Broad menu and our party were all pleased w/ their food. Biscuits and gravy were just okay, but the pork sausage patties were very tasty. Sole potato option is of the diced variety, and it would be nice if hash browns were added to the menu. Service was friendly and efficient. We arrived on a Sunday before 8, and were immediately seated. By 0815, the place was nearly full. Outdoor seating is plentiful, which was good for the sweaty bicyclists that arrived en masse after their road workout. Cheers! RS

    Went to the Egg I am for the first time. We wanted to try something different and came across this place through yelp. There were a lot of great reviews so we decided to give it a go! Loved it! Food was delicious, reasonably priced and everyone was super friendly. Our order was placed and arrived at our table with in 5 minutes..It was so fast! The restaurant itself is a typical looking breakfast atmosphere...not huge, which I like. We ate outside on the patio which I love to do when the weather here in AZ. permits If you are looking for a new breakfast place, give this one a go. Looks like they have a great lunch menu as well.

    I love this spot for brunch meetups with my friends. The portions are large, the service is friendly, the food is yummy. They always take good care of us and I love their healthy options.

    Plenty of indoor and outdoor seating. Was seated right away on a busy Saturday morning. Outside has misters to cool you down on a hot summer morning. Started with their coffee and was pleasantly surprised. Rainforest Alliance certified Arabica coffee. Bold taste. I followed my coffee order with the Sante Fe Huevos. A warm flour tortilla layered with seasoned black beans, pepper jack cheese and two eggs over easy. Topped with salsa, guacamole, fresh tomatoes, sour cream and fresh green onions. Served with ranch potatoes. Can't go wrong with this! One of the best bfast dishes I've had eating out.

    Great food, great service, reasonable prices. Breakfast left nothing to be desired. Green Chile is awesome, must try not too spicy just good flavor. Have only had breakfast there, wife says that lunch is just as good.

    The food was ok, not anything special...especially not for the price! However, I would have rated it a 3 star had they been honest and forthcoming with me. I asked if I could substitute a pancake instead of the English muffin that came with the meal and the server said I could. He said nothing about any additional cost. However, when we got the bill there was an extra $4.30 charge!!!!!!!!!!! Is that not someting you think to mention?????? I feel like it was completely dishonest. I will probably never return.

    Always super, fast, friendly service. Even carry out orders are fast! They focus on breakfast, and it shows... Its delicious! Specialty coffees and teas as well. I love to add their pork chilli to the potatoes. Out of sight!!

    The place was packed on a Saturday but the wait wasn't too bad. My husband ordered French toast without powdered sugar. It came out wrong but they made him a new one fairly quickly. I had a waffle and bacon. Both were good, but mine was better ;-) Super yummy and hit the spot! I informed the server that I drink LOTS of water and he brought out a pitcher (and kept refilling it for me!) Our server didn't have much personality but he was efficient so I have no complaints there. My recommendation to the owners- have the servers take the checks so you pay at the table. The combination of people waiting to pay and people waiting to get in gets quite overwhelming. I think it also discourages business because people walking up see this mass of humanity and think their wait will be too long. Actuality is that at least 1/3 of them are simply waiting to pay.

    Showed up for breakfast at 615 left at 625 with no service. Great place to eat, but no one came up to greet us or seat us. We won't be coming back. At least have a bell to let yall know someone has popped in to eat.

    We recently moved to the neighborhood and thought we'd give The Egg I Am a try since we love all things breakfast. We went around 9am on a Sunday, and there was no wait (but it also looked like a full house, so we may have taken the last table at the time). This review is a week after the visit, so I don't remember exactly what we ordered, but here's what I do remember... adorable Mickey Mouse shaped pancake for my son, a steak scramble for my husband, and a chicken hash scramble for me. Everything was delicious! We'll definitely be back!

  • Mark A.

    Have been here several times, usually Saturday mornings (depending on the time you get there, you might have a slight wait, which is a positive indicator) and the food and service have always been very good bordering on the excellent if you are fortunate to have one of the 'veterans' be your server. I usually get the garden frittata and it never disappoints, it always arrives hot and the veggies are fresh; the help is always friendly and the prices are absolutely fair in regards to the quality. There is not an abundance of parking in this particular strip mall, so if you're meeting a group on a known busy (weekend) day, I would advise car-pooling. Recommended.

    Great place to check out on a Sunday morning. Our server was quick and pleasant. The food is pretty consistant and we rarely need to wait too long for our table or our food. One of our go to spots for a Sunday breakfast.

  • Anthony M.

    Took my 4 yr old for brunch yesterday, food was good, price was decent service was very good, but the man in the back screaming and yelling profanities actually scared my son to the point where he struggled to eat. If you take your kids ask to not sit by the kitchen. Food and service 4 stars, but had to give a 1 for obvious reasons.

  • Amy M.

    I have been here a couple of times for breakfast and the food and service have been very good. Their Benedict's are very good and just the right amount of hollandaise sauce. Coffee is delish and they put a carafe on the table so you can refill at will. My only complaint is the ranch potatoes...both times I've had them they were way over salted, almost like the potatoes were soaked in a brine. I have one request...make the jalapeno cake benedicts that you had as a special in August a regular menu item!

  • Lydia C.

    Great service! Made suggestions about loaded potatoes, which interested my hubby for our next visit. Like the environment, feels "homey," new and inviting, even though it's a chain restaurant. It was busy at 9:45, had to wait 15 minutes to be seated. But not bad for a Satursay morning! It was a bit humid in the restaurant. If it wasn't cold outside, we would've sat out on the patio. Although, they do have heaters on the patio. I ordered over-hard eggs, bacon and sausage. Bacon wasn't crispy and the eggs could've been cooked longer so the yolk could be completely cooked. But to be fair, I didn't ask for crispy bacon. Husband and niece loved their biscuits and gravy! Mother in law loved the sourdough bread, but thought the bacon was under-cooked. Our waitress was nice to ask if we wanted cups to take our drinks to go. Good server. I liked this place and the food was pretty good. We'll come back again.

  • Dee S.

    I'm giving it 5 stars b/c it is as good as it gets. We've never been to a breakfast place that puts FRESH blueberries, raspberries and pineapple in their fruit cups. My husband loves the Berry-ola steele cut oatmeal because of the fresh fruit. We've been here several times for lunch and breakfast and we've always been happy with our selections. We've always had cheerful, attentive servers no matter which one we get. The coffee here is pretty decent too. Very nice clean interior. theeggandirestaurants.co… I'm getting hungry just thinking about you Egg I Am!

  • Lisa M.

    We are big breakfast people and the Egg I Am did not disappoint! The portions were a good size for the price, that's always a plus with breakfast food! The staff was friendly and our waiter was fantastic. The only negative thing is that they don't serve Dr Pepper! We will definitely be going again (I'll just stop for a polar pop on the way)!

    Great service. Our favorite breakfast spot in the area. Love the eggs benedict and vanilla coffee!

  • Jules H.

    Good atmosphere, friendly staff, ordered orange juice (fresh squeezed) odwalla. For a $1.00 more you get a carafe for a second glass...nice. I ordered bisquits, gravy and eggs, gravy was a little spicy for me. The eggs were perfect. They don't have an option for hash browns only breakfast potatoes and an option for crispier potatoes.

  • Omar D.

    The only issue I have with Yelp is they don't have negative star ratings. I'm not typically harsh on these type of diners/cafes as you get what you pay for. It seemed like a cute place to eat, my food came out after about 25 min. and it was luke warm at best. I found what appeared to be a roach or some insect on my plate. The waitress quickly removed my plate and asked if I would like something else. The kitchen must be disgusting. No we will never return. If you have insects on your plate you have an infestation issue.

    I tried The Egg I Am on Sunday Morning at about 10 am. Upon arrival, we put our names on the list as there was a wait. After about a 15-20 minute wait for our table for two, we were seated. The restaurant has a typical breakfast joint feel; country. The seats were fairly uncomfortable. We were promptly greeted by our server and our drink order was taken. Shortly thereafter, our drinks were served. Our food took about 15 minutes which was an appropriate amount of time I thought for how busy they were. I ordered the Viva La France which was 2 slices of french toast, 2 eggs your way and 2 slices of bacon. They food expediter brought out our food and did not bring me syrup so I had to ask for it. The food was ok, actually the eggs were good and buttery but the french toast was so-so. All in all, The Egg I Am is good. While a little pricier than it needs to be but not exorbitant, it is an ok place for breakfast. Next time, I may try for lunch.

    My husband discovered this little gem on his way to school. He told me about it and said it's probably something I would enjoy. So glad he did! I've always tried something different and I've never been disappointed. Today it was the Colorado Jack Scramble with a small side of pork green chili. YUM! The waiter also brought me some guacamole because they put avocado on my meal, instead of the guacamole. Different, but surprisingly tasty. We've never been disappointed in this place. And the service is always stellar. We've been fortunate enough to have the same waiter, Payson, each time we've been in. He always greets us with a smile and comments if we haven't been in for a bit. I'll be disappointed when he eventually moves on because he's just a delightful young man. I always make sure he's tipped well. ;) Overall, we like this place for breakfast. We've never had lunch so can't comment, but that'll come someday. The place is clean, service great and we think the price is spot on. My husband commented this morning that he appreciates that there is not a ton of food on the plate that's going to be wasted. Many breakfast places throw a bunch of potatoes on the plate for their filler. We'll continue to patronize The Egg I am!

    Great breakfast spot, I liked the idea of the free meeting room. I had the Green Chile Chicken Hash and I thought it was great. The coffee (Pecan) was good too but wasn't that hot. Good service and everyone was friendly. I did go back with the whole family Debbie was a great server, breakfast was awesome for everyone. My only knock was when I ordered a side of corned beef hash I ended up with a side of hashed potatoes but since I'm a meat n potatoes kind of guy, I ate it anyway and was still ok with it. The picture of my son says a lot, propped up in the corner of the booth with 2 bites of his adult size pancake left on his plate with his hood over his head like he went to battle with his food and lost.

  • Lena V.

    Yes! Finally found a great place for breakfast. I asked the waiter what was good and he made some suggestions based on what he liked. Eggs with their chili verde sauce, so delicious. I'm not a fan of "country potatoes", rather have hash browns but it's not offered. My reply, who cares, the potatoes were perfect. Next visit, my husband and I both had the Texas skillet, it was beyond good. Bold flavors, cooked perfect! You have a winner!

  • Heather S.

    My parents actually turned us onto this place (usually we're the ones to introduce them to new places). We went on a Sunday around 11, they were pretty packed but we were seated quickly enough. The place has a quaint, country charm vibe. Our waiter was very attentive and after realizing how fast we go through iced tea and water he brought us adorable little pitchers! My Mom and I ordered the eggs benedict. I liked everything but the ham (I'm not big on ham to begin with though). I'm very picky about my poached eggs being cooked properly and can go all Gordon Ramsey if they're messed up. They were perfect! I really loved the hollandaise too.I forget what my Dad and hubby ordered but they loved theirs as well. We'll definitely be going back here regularly!

    Took my sister here for brunch. She had dietary limitations and explained to the server what she wanted. Her meal was beyond her expectations and was delicious. I had the breakfast sandwich and it was super delish. I like how you are served a carafe of your beverages and I especially liked that the cashier reminded me of a discount I wasn't aware of. I will be back for sure!

  • Walt K.

    Arrived 10:00 am on Monday. About ten minutes to be seated and server was on us fast. All orders were accurate and very good. Service was very good, nice place, small but nice. We sat on the large patio, tables could have used table cloths but was nice. Bathrooms clean as was the clientele. Food was well presented and both tasty and pretty. Bill for 4 was only 50.00 buck, will definitely return. The menu offered a large selection that satisfied all.

  • April A.

    The food and service at The Egg I Am are so inconsistent as to make frequenting here irritating. My husband ordered the Colorado Jack Scramble and enjoyed every bite. My 14-year old son tried the Cheddar Burger, which he noted, while tasty, was very greasy (not juicy, greasy). I tried the special Peaches & Cream French Toast, which tasted just okay. It was not prepared as described, the temperature was tepid, and the peaches were canned and sparse. As for the service, we were hopeful that we would be seated in Debbie's section but, alas, no such luck. Instead, our service was compulsory and falsely cordial. We received our order long after two other tables (in Debbie's section) who were seated well after us, and were largely neglected save for the requisite "How is everything" asked on the run. The check was dropped 1/3 of the way through our meal - a clear sign that our server was done with us, whether we needed anything else or not. So, while I'm certain we'll return, if only because of the restaurant's proximity to many of our other activities and the potential of a reasonable meal, we'll be sure to specify our choice of server or manage our expectations accordingly.

    Never disappoints. Overall fantastic experience every time we visit. The Hiker's Egg Benedict was probably one of the best breakfast items I have ever had. Friendly service. Insides could use a revamp but maybe that is a matter of personal taste so we won't hold this against them ever.

  • Brian F.

    To quote my wife "The best waffle she ever had in her life & it doesn't need syrup!" Place is pretty busy but they seat you fast and the service is always friendly. The eggs are really good and you can add cheese and even get stuffed French toast with eggs. Kids love the waffles and prices are really good for what you get. The waffle "Sugar & Spice" (Pumpkin Pecan) is the one my wife said was the greatest ever and it might be seasonal so for that reason alone we will be back next weekend.

  • Scott B.

    What an absolute joke this place is! We were told the wait would be 20 min. 45 minutes later we were told 15 minutes & the entire time there were many empty tables, 10 at last count. When I asked why we are all waiting so long the answer was, my manager asked me to stop seating tables for a while. I understand the kitchen needing to catch up, but it was ridiculous & completely unprofessional. Won't be back until we see the manager name on the door change, because this lady has no clue what she's doing!

    Wrong order taken.. Ok- mistakes happen. But please don't tell me what I ordered was wrong. Trying to make it right- they put in original order. But took 10-15 minutes to get- while my dining partner finished, visited with friends, and went to eldest room. Really? You can't put an order in and expedite? To add to it- waiter insisted he was right. Um. No Manager very respectful and appropriate- she was great. Not worth wait- food and service was mediocre at best.

  • Pick C.

    Our waitress was friendly at first but a little scattered throughout our service. My friend and I ordered different things to try some dishes and all were very yummy. The eggs, which for me is the most important part of breakfast, were cooked perfectly. We didn't feel rushed, considering there was a line to get in. We will be back.

  • Krissy H.

    Should be 2 1/2 stars. Nothing to write home about. I aways ask for onions in my hash browns why they can't ever get it is besides me. They give it to me on the side raw or forget them just can't ever get them they also cook them early in the morning not fresh so they are dried out and taste old. Not made to order. We have never had anything great there.always pretty clean.

    This was our first and last visit. I ordered a club sandwich and asked for extra pickles and the waitress had to ask how much they will charge. Half a buck for one pickle spear... I'm not cheap but that's tacky nickel and dime, oh I'm sorry half a buck. BS. Did I mention 25 min to get our meal when not that busy?

    I was super excited to see there was a breakfast spot near me that served grits. The atmosphere and service was great up until the moment I pulled someone's hair from my tooth. I was instantly mortified and expressed my concern to who appeared as a female manager. After I shared my discontent regarding the hair fiasco she begin to laugh and tell me her cooks wear hair nets. Lets just say I will never return to this establishment.

  • David M.

    I still like Egg I Am but feel like the quality of food has suffered a bit over the last year. I visit about once a month and I feel like my meals have been more hit or miss lately. They've also removed my favorite breakfast dish, the Wild Mushroom Veggie Hash. Yesterday I ordered an omelette with hollandaise sauce and my wife ordered a dish similar to Eggs Benedict but on a croissant (don't recall the name) and we were both let down by our meals; the sauce just tasted off. The coffee is still fantastic and the service is still great. Hope to see the food get back to the quality that made this place a solid go-to for us.

    We had great service,good coffee nice atmosphere. The food is the reason for the two stars.The potatoes where tasteless no shredded just frozen chunks. The biscuits where hard, not homemade and the gravy was bland.

  • Josh S.

    This place is amazing! I am a picky eater, and I tried 4 different entrées yesterday. The banana nut French toast was phenomenal even without syrup. The huevos rancheros was great. The fritada was excellent, and my sons waffle was exceptionally good. The price for four people with the quality of food was very nice. The service was excellent as well! I advise everyone within a 20-30 minute drive to try this place out. On a side note their hazelnut coffee is better than ****bucks. They sell it by 6oz. Bags and I went home with some. I am not typically a big coffee drinker, but I love this stuff. I encourage you to try it, and you will not be disappointed.

    My husband and I stopped by before 7am on a weekday so it was blissfully empty. Service was friendly and prompt. We got coffee right away, and it tasted pretty good. We got actual creamer instead of those plastic cups of half and half so extra points for that. I was pleasantly surprised by my veggie benedict. There were lots of my favorites veggies like artichokes and asparagus under my poached eggs, and the hollandaise had a good tangy flavor. My husband was satisfied with his biscuits and gravy, but we was wishing for more sausage. Special thanks to the waitress who mistook my long-haired husband for a woman. I love a good belly laugh that early in the morning.

  • j. r.

    The food was below the standard I expect for a mom & pop breakfast joint. I had steak and eggs. Although the steak was tender, it was poorly seasoned - even A1 didn't make it tasty. The eggs were bland as hell and don't get me started on the "ranch" potatoes. If I go to a mom & pop for breakfast I want real potatoes not frozen packaged potato squares. They were simply dismal. The waitress was nice though.

    Went for a drive looking for a nice breakfast place and was delighted to stumble upon The Egg I am. The atmosphere and décor was warm and inviting. The staff was welcoming with sincere smiles and attentive. My husband loves his breakfasts and is very picky - he was most happy here and thoroughly enjoyed his meal as did I! We're looking forward to our next visit in a couple of weeks as the menu of breakfast and lunch meals is plentiful! We may even try a table outside; looks very pleasant in the shade! We highly recommend to everyone.

  • Daisy G.

    I tried so hard to like this place. How can you go wrong with a giant pancake? I ordered an apple granola pancake. It contained two ingredients that did not belong - a raisin (not too big of a deal but technically was not supposed to be in the pancake) and a piece of avocado (it was bright green and definitely looked like an avocado - I didn't try eating it). I don't know how those two things ended up in the apple pancakes but I've never had that happen to me at a restaurant. The pancake was decent beyond those two things but way overpriced. I'm sorry but I won't be back. I don't suggest it.

    We have tried this place two times since my review and I have to say we have seen an amazing turn around. One of the owners did reach out to me, and apologized for the experience. True professionalism!! The Santa Fe Huevos Rancheros are amazing. On our last visit a male( one of the owners according to our server) was going around to the tables, filling waters, and taking real ownership in making sure everyone had a great experience. New Pre-Golf hot spot!!!

    The first few times we've been here, great experience. Went today. Sat right away but waited 30 minutes for our food to be delivered. Omelet was pretty flat. Bacon was under cooked. Scrambled eggs had large yolk pieces. Only highlight were the waffles. Probably won't be back.

    On a recent Sunday morning around 8:00 AM, I went here for breakfast with my wife and two young children. They were busy, as expected at this time of day, but not full. We were seated right away and there were several other empty tables. The hostess quickly brought a high chair, kids menu and colors. The waitress came quickly and took our drink order. Everything went fine until it took seemingly forever to get our food. We watched as two other tables (one also a family) received their food before us even though they were seated and ordered well after us. Our waitress kept stopping by and telling us that ours should be ready "any minute". Finally I pointed out the other two tables and within a minute she brought our food. However, my omelette was warm at best and my hash browns were cold. My wife's French Toast was cold as well. My omelette was also flat, think more like a fried egg texture instead of a thicker almost fluffy omelette as one would normally expect. So it was a disappointing experience because this seems like a nice place and it is close to us. Hopefully our experience was an exception so we will try it once more, but this experience was unsatisfactory due to food quality and timeliness of service.

    We will never darken their doorstep again. My sister recommended this after church today and she said it was amazing. We are always in the mood to try something new so we gave it a shot. Waited about 10 minutes for a table, sat down and looked over the menu. We ordered two breakfast sandwiches and a pancake, does that sound like a hard order? No. Waiting... Waiting...waiting... We are waiting for our food and our waitress says they haven't forgotten our order its the kitchen that's backed up, waiting some more but theres plates of food going out to tables that arrived after us. Our pancake and my sandwich comes out, both stone cold. Where's our other sandwich? And our potato dish? We send the first food back to get fresh and my moms sandwich comes out and that's cold, but the potatoes are hot. The manager comes over and we tell her our problem and she takes my moms sandwich and says it will be redone and that the meal will be on her. She brings my moms sandwich back out to only know that it was reheated, and wheres the rest of the food? "We claimed we didn't want it redone." So we just said forget about the food and we got up and left. Have decided to go to a better breakfast spot that's very popular.

    Food is great, service can be a little hit and miss. It's never terrible, just not always great. On weekends there is always a wait so be prepared for that. My husband loves the green chile chicken hash. I usually order from the "lighter" menu and get something like the oatmeal or yogurt parfait.

    Not anything special. Food wasn't too bad service was good. I would have rather gone to my ultimate favorite place The Gilbert House!

    The breakfast took a long time but when it finally did it was good! But a little pricey for eggs and bacon!

    I've been meaning to come check this place out since it opened as I live right across the street but I am just not really a "breakfast" person usually. However I had a friend visiting from out of town and thought it was the perfect opportunity. Went around 11:30am on a Saturday (ok, more "brunch" time than breakfast), and we were sat immediately. Quick and friendly service. The menu is incredible. It took us forever to decide because everything looked so good. We finally both decided, I got the Santa Fe Huevos and she got the Green Chili Chicken Hash. After waiting what seemed like forever (mostly because I was starving, but partially because it did take a while), we got our food... all wrong. Both of our orders had things missing. Hers was missing the green chili!? How is that even possible? THAT is what she ordered. It was also missing the guacamole, as was mine (guacamole shortage perhaps?), AND she had to ask for her tortilla. Oh but the waitress DID bring out a side of hollandaise sauce for her. WTF? Hollandaise?! With the green chili chicken hash?? So after flagging down the first person we could and telling them ALL the things that were wrong, they quickly brought everything out that we were missing, and we dug in. Have to admit, the food was very good. This, and this alone, will bring me back in the future. I'm pretty certain our waitress was brand new (she didn't seem to know the menu well, clearly since she brought out HOLLANDAISE for a chili hash), so I will give them another shot in hopes of getting a more experienced server who knows that the green chili chicken hash is supposed to actually have green chili and not hollandaise...

    Great breakfast spot. Clean,friendly,great service, obviously we'll managed. The Parisienne Benedict is fantastic. Returned in a few days for another. This will be a must stop whenever in the area.

    I don't know how long this place has been here, but thank you Yelp for helping me find it. My mom and I met here for breakfast, and we were both pleasantly surprised. We both ordered different varieties of Eggs Benedict, and they were pretty good. I liked the variety of the menu- lots of their menu items had unique flavor combinations, not just your typical "dineresque" selections. Their seasonal coffee was good, and their brand of hot sauce at the table was tasty too. One downside for me was the way you pay. I don't like paying at the front where everyone is waiting for a table. It makes the entryway super crowded in an already busy restaurant. Definitely makes it seem a little hectic and disorganized.

    Not the best but pretty good. I wouldn't make this place my fav rest but still ok with every once in a while. Not good service.

    Nothing special IMO. Long wait to get seated and for food. Server wasn't paying attention to things we requested. Wasn't outrageously bad, but we won't be back

    First time trying this restaurant, and we won't be back. It took 45 minutes to get breakfast. Water glasses were not refilled, and we weren't asked if we wanted another pot of coffee. The potatoes were lukewarm/cold and hard as bricks. The egg dish was OK. My husband said his biscuits were hard. Not worth the time or money to return when better places are nearby.

    NOTE: 4 STARS IS FOR THE FOOD. Service is a whole different story. Careful for the 16 year olds hosting because they'll likely drop the ball when you're there. I'm assuming that their inexperience and being overwhelmed by the high weekend volume is the cause for them to skip names. It's not the servers fault that they get double sat and lack in service because of it. I blame the hostesses. Also, they have no baby changing station. Isn't that illegal? However, in their defense I like this breakfast restaurant more than their competitors (the good egg etc.). Their corned beef hash and biscuits and gravy are amazing!!!! Great coffee and freshly squeezed orange juice, too!

    Great little place to do for Sunday breakfast with the family. Very nice servers, ok food (it was barely warm) at a fair price, colored pencils instead of crayons for the kids. :). They also allowed me to charge my phone at the hostess desk. 2 thumbs up.

    The menu is big which normally scares me because of complications in the kitchen, but the food was great! The steaks ares good cuts for breakfast steaks, the food was all hot when it arrived. The also give you a carafe of your drink or coffee so you can eat in peace. The owner visited out table and she was tuned in to our feedback. The only thing you need to remember is get there early! It was open for 2 weeks when we went. I was very happy with the experience!

    The service was great, Your server always has a smile and great attitude. I'm been there a few times but waiting to write this review. It is a busy place on the weekends, so plan a 30 to 45 min wait during the peak hours. The nice thing is that while you wait, they do have coffee and water outside. Not a big place so it fills up fast. The menu is simple,but good food item to select. Priced in the $6.00 to $9.00 range, not bad price for the food served. The food is good with a twist on the basic egg and bacon & hash browns. They kick it up a bit with some interesting menu selections. I'm a fan living in Gilbert, worth the drive.

    So cute. Good food. Super nice waitress. A little on the pricy side for being a breakfast/lunch place, but food is spot on.

    My son loves eggs everything about them how to prepare how to whip them hard boiled. I took him here before we have a day together of talking and walking to the comic book store, train store and he said Dad those eggs were good. They were sunny side up not burned not slimly and they made the smile face with the bacon and toast were ears. I like little touches like that seem like a gimmick but to a little boy without a high chair it's a big smile and it takes such little effort for the cook (I used to be a cook) or the server to make a plate look good.

  • Nancy C.

    Horrible. We were seated then ignored with 5 people standing around. When a couple came in several minutes after us and immediately had their drink order taken we decided to leave and go eat at Village Inn, where the service and food are dependable and good! On the way out the door At Egg I Am one of the lazy 5 standing around told us to have a good day. Really? Last time I will stop at this location to eat.

    It's rare to say breakfast is amazing, usually good or fare is my standard response. But this is amazing. All the ingredients are good. The choices are great. Service has been above average, very attentive. Our new favorite breakfast spot.

  • Dennis H.

    Good food, great service. I don't think I've seen a better managed restaurant. There is attention to every detail... Nice to have a selection of coffees too. The food is slightly generic and heavy on potatoes but worth coming out for.

    We were so excited about this place. There is NOTHING for a nice, sit-down breakfast that close by. However, after being there twice, I will be making the trip to downtown Gilbert when we can splurge for a nice breakfast again. (There are way better options and cheaper too on Gilbert Rd. in the downtown area.) The Egg I Am offers a GREAT assortment of egg-based items, and if they were better prepared, this place could be a knock-out. Instead, it is pricey for what it actually offers. The omelets are very generic -- ham and cheese omelet has really small preprepared diced ham (like from Costco) and then they throw a little cheddar cheese and melt it on top. There is no cheese actually IN the omelet. It is not bad-tasting, just really generic --- if you want a big fluffy omelet, DO NOT GO HERE. Also, compared from the first time and this time, they appear to be cutting way back on the companion potatoes. I had a frittata the first time. That is even flatter. As to environment, this place is nice, though I don't know that the wooden slat booths are all that comfortable. I loved my waiter, but I was delivered my check both times before we were even 1/2 done. That says something about the management.

    Been to this place a couple times and it's always been great! There is always a wait but it's well worth it! First time I went I got biscuits and gravy and the second time a salad. Both were delicious and the restaurant has a cozy feel to it. I will defiantly keep coming back! I highly recommend this place if you live near by.

    Been wanting to try this place. Gotta say the food was not great. My biscuits were hard and the gravy was congealed and crusted over. And we got charged for the coffee we ordered to keep warm because they didn't have the heat on and right next to the door opening every 5 seconds it was damn near freezing. The coffee mind u is free while you wait only 3 feet away from me, but because I didn't want to seem tacky getting up and walking over there for it, I asked my waitress for it. My food came 2 seconds later so it barely got touched. And they charged us $5! For coffee they give out for free to the person standing RIGHT NEXT to me! I asked the manager to take it off and she gave me total attitude. So not going back. That lady was a b**** and the food was no where near good enough to compensate for it.

    Food was okay, unfortunately the service is the worst. Being the only breakfast place around (for now) took way to long to get a table. Then once we did get seated and order, waited over an hour for food. To bad

    Great little breakfast place in south Gilbert. We've driven by several times and decided to check it out...happy we did. Food was tasty (Colorado jack scramble with real whole wheat toast) and service was great! It was jammin by 9:30 and around 30 people waiting outside. Definitely going back for future breakfast outings with no other decent options in the area.

    I went with the breakfast burrito for my first time. It's great to have a breakfast place so close to home now! The food was a solid 7/10, A bit overpriced, and the decor is a bit dated. But I'll back in the future!

  • Shannon B.

    My husband and I have tried The Egg I Am 3 different times and have enjoyed our breakfast food every single time. We've tried the Athena scramble, the MBA frittata and (just today) the raspberry granola pancake. All of the items were great, but the raspberry granola pancake was probably one of THE BEST pancakes we have ever tasted. Crunch, nutty, slightly sweet and delicious. It, kind of, tastes like raspberry pie. We're going back to try the pineapple/coconut pancake and also the cinnamon apple pancake. Try it, you'll love it. We haven't had any problems with the service and got our food quickly. They tend to get busy, so if you don't like waiting use their call-ahead seating.

    Tried this place on Sat. It was packed but they still got our large group of 6 adults and 5 kids seated in about 20 mins. The menu seemed great, lots of choices, I wanted to try everything on it and I will, eventually. Everyone at our table loved their food. I got the breakfast Croissant, I had them add bacon to it but I wish I would have had them add bacon and sausage to it, it was lacking in artery clogging delicious meat. It was good though. It did seem like the food took forever to get there but they were super busy and its a new restaurant so I'm sure they are getting the hang of things still. Server was wonderful and kept checking on us and apologizing for the food taking a little longer then expected. I will be going back and recommending it to our friends. I would recommend trying to go on a week day though, may be a better experience.

    I was glad to see a breakfast restaurant open around the corner from me. Since it's opening we've eaten here 3 times (breakfast only). I can't say I'm really impressed. The service is good, very warm & welcoming but the food is just okay. The price doesn't jusify what you get. I'd rather make the drive and get a better tasting breakfast for less money.

  • Ron D.

    Great atmosphere, friendly staff. I had the Greek frittata it was amazing. The Apple cinnamon granola pancake is absolutely incredible. Ordered it for dessert. Only thing I might change, next time I'll order the pancake for an appetizer so I can enjoy it before I get too full.

  • Andrea P.

    Gilbert needed a new venue to accommodate it's growing population and this place is spot on!!! The menu is amazing- food choices are unique and tasty and at a decent price. Staff is still new, but learning and have grown leaps and bounds since opening day. Try the Cambridge Skillet to start!

    We've been coming here since they've opened. I feel like the quality of the food has gone down big time. They've gotten a few orders incorrect. But the last time we went there my sandwich had a moldy tomato on it. I was super excited to have a new place in the neighborhood. But we will not be going back.

    I went here with my family for a late breakfast on Saturday. I had the Mexican omelett and my wife had the biscuits and gravy. It was all very tasty. My only complaint is that we had to wait about a half hour when there were clearly empty tables. We were there during a prime time for a breakfast/ lunch place. It seems strange to not be all the way staffed up.

    Today was our second visit to 'The Egg I Am' on a Sunday. We arrived around 9:00AM and not a bad wait to be seated, 30 minutes. The complimentary coffee is a nice perk to have available while waiting. Once seated, it took 30 minutes for our food to arrive (during both visits). It has been over 6 weeks or more since they have been open and it is a shame that at both visits it took over 30 minutes for our food ticket, of just breakfast food. This is a lack of prep in the kitchen. Owners please take note and work on the kitchen staff to speed up the times. The apples in the apple pancake were raw. They fell out of the pancake. The eggs were great the first visit and were cooked just right. Today, the eggs were runny and were not hot. The bacon was cold too. I just do not see a 3rd visit in my future.

    The food was average at best. It is a little pricier that your bigger breakfast franchise. Our drinks came out after breakfast was served. Our order wasnt quite right either. But they did quickly corrected it. I asked the manager if they would honor another locations coupon and she said no as they are seperate franchise. I completely understood. I politely asked if this franchise was planning on a coupon for this location . She responded in an arrogant "no". I, as a customer politely encouraged her as its great business and customer appreciation! Her response was rude rather than a polite, "great idea" or even.."oh yeah?" Even if she had no intention...just be polite! Instead I got, "business is doing quite well without it, I have no problem- we have been quite busy and we do take care of our regulars"....just a tad rude for my liking,especially from the owner. As if to allude that she did not appreciate our business? Make your own decision..but I wont frequent or recommend this restaurant. I just didn't care for her and the food was "meh"...Service can make or break a place. On a scale if 5 the food was a 3 (average), but the attitude brought it down to a 2:/
