    Not bad, but the gluten free menu leaves a lot to be desired.

    Nice place but NOT gluten free. I asked for the gluten free menu and she said is was gluten friendly or something like that. I am guessing there was some cross contamination or something because I am dying right now!!

    Yes, they do have a gluten free separate menu but.... It wasn't anything you couldn't just handpick off their menu...eggs, meat, potatoes, fruit! No gluten free muffins, bread, pancake batter, etc.

    Waitress was clueless about gluten allergy. They do have a GF menu, but it is unclear why some items aren’t on it and she wasn’t able to explain this. My stomach was upset after eating here so I️ assume there is cross contamination in the back. I️ ordered an avocado ham scramble with fruit and potatoes. My husband had the corned beef and it was pretty gross - actually the 1st time he didn’t like a meal from this restaurant. No ill effects for him though.

    This diner is fine but for the same price you could have the fresh, classy food of Over Easy. I have Celiac Disease and while this place is gluten friendly and do their best to prevent cross contamination, the only options that would work for celiacs are those that are in a separate skillet. The oatmeal pancakes are made from gluten free oats but they are only willing to cook them on the griddle which is shared with gluten containing items. Also, the hollandaise sauce is not made fresh and does contain gluten. I ordered the corned beef hash without hollandaise sauce and the English muffin, with my eggs over easy and a side of dressed greens in place of the English muffin. The food was good but typical good diner food. The dressed greens were dressed with a lemon vinegarette made fresh onsite. I guess I should mention that we were not expecting a diner. My husband had been to an Egg and I in Alabama and raved about it. We didn't realize that it wasn't the same as that Egg and I in Alabama, which we should have been clued in by the use of the and sign in this Egg & I. My husband had the Athena Scramble which he said was good. Personally, we will probably be going to Over Easy, which we love, more than here but this is definitely a decent place and the staff seem knowledgeable despite claiming it's only celiac friendly.

    This is a chain restaurant where I always know I will get a gluten free breakfast and great service. They will substitute fruit for toast/bread. The breakfast potatoes are gluten free.

    The egg & I is a breakfast place that was just wonderful! They have 13 full options for unique breakfast combinations (thankfully you don't have to order al a carte). The eggs were cooked correctly and super hot. We tried two dishes and they both hit the spot! Even for lunch. The staff was extremely helpful coming to double and triple check with us that they were doing everything they needed. Ask for Michelle she is great!

    I really had to coach and educate the waitress on what gluten was... They have a "gluten friendly" menu and she interpreted (and was told by her manager) that it was a guide for those who want to reduce calories. I informed her on what Celiac Disease was and what we can/cannot eat. I ordered the Garden Frittata with fruit and it was very tasty... I didn't get sick and I'll be back.

    Their menu indicates "gluten friendly" not gluten free, but we think they are just covering their bases. Husband has Celiac disease and gets the omelets often with no issues.

    While they do have a "gluten friendly" menu, they don't guarantee that there is no cross contamination. The menu basically said everything to cover their butts. Just good to know if you have celiac and/or are very sensitive to gluten. I'd be cautious.

    While The Egg & I has a gluten "friendly" menu, you really must take to heart their caution that "The Egg & I Restaurant is not a gluten-free environment and cross-contact with ingredients containing gluten is a possibility." My daughter tried one of their gluten free plates (scrambled eggs, bacon, potatoes) and still got very ill. Be cautious.

    I had a great experience here. My waiter knew a lot about gluten sensitivities and celiac and helped me pick my meal safely. He said the only salsa that was GF is the green salsa. Also let me swap out my toast for fruit, no charge.

    I left after three tables seated after me had drinks, and no one had spoken to me. This was at least at 10 minute wait without anyone speaking to me, and the restaurant was less than half full. Who can tell if the food's good, if you're never served?

    My family always loved this restaurant! When I started eating gluten free I had casually crossed it off the list of "safe places". We eventually went there anyways thinking I could just order eggs and bacon, no sides. The waitstaff was amazing! They allowed me to switch out gluten items (toast or pancakes) for fresh fruit with no additional charge. They also took special care not to contaminate my food. Just mention that you have an allergy and they are awesome to work with you!

    Egg & I is franchised, so ask at each location what the GF choices are. In my experience, the Fort Collins College Ave location has the most options, but I've been happy with the Fort Collins Oakridge, Loveland and Estes Park locations too. At the one on South College, the pork green chili is GF, so take advantage!
