The Egg and I is similar to a Denny's or Ihop, yet I don't mean to insult Ihop by lumping these two eateries together. I love Ihop! The Egg and I's atmosphere was a little too simple, country kitchen for me. Indoor/outdoor carpet. Very basic chairs and tables. That is completely fine if the service and food had been amazing. But, the food was nothing spectacular.
I ordered the Garden Fritatta ($8.29). Actually, a large amount of food came on my plate. But nothing that was just mind-blowing crazy good. The Frittata included tomatoes, green peppers, onions, portabella mushrooms, baby spinach, and cheddar and Monterrey jack cheeses. Fresh ingredients, but the fritatta was very thin and dry. The dish came with a side of potatoes and buttered toast. While the potatoes were moist and tender, there was no flavor.
I was disappointed by the lack of ambiance, so-so service, and hum ho food. For a chain breakfast, I'm hitting Ihop in the future.
