    The very first time I discovered their gluten friendly oatmeal pancake, I figured I’d give it a try. I was also there to use my free birthday meal keep in mind. It comes out and I was very skeptical. It came with the wrong fruit sauce and no fruit cup. I had figured they had just messed up a bit. About halfway through eating, I finally said something to my waiter. He went back into the kitchen and came back within what felt like a few seconds. THEY HAD BROUGHT ME A GLUTENED UP PANCAKE! I was very upset and I said something to the manger. She gave me that meal for free and they never messed up like that again. Just be very cautious when you order this menu item.

    This place is excellent. GF menu, omelets, skillets, etc. Menu has oatmeal pancakes but I haven't tried those. I had the Vera Cruz Chicken and Avocado Omelette with ranch potatoes, all delicious! Spinach Bacon Mushroom Omelette is also good.

    The food here is amazing! I had an omelette with fresh spinach, huge chunks of delicious mushrooms, bacon, cheese, and hollandaise sauce. It was the best omelette I’ve ever eaten. Side was potatoes with fresh herbs. They had a delicious gf toast also. It’s not celiac guaranteed, but they went out of their way to toast bread in a separate toaster. They seem very careful. I hope to come back when we get to the area.

    The only gluten ‘friendly’ option was an oatmeal pancake. Cross contamination can occur.

    There’s a “gluten-friendly” oatmeal pancake. Delish! No GF bread, though, which is disappointing.

    The staff was very friendly. I asked them to clean the grill for the pancakes and they were more than willing. They changed their gloves and picked the fruit from the back. I am extremely sensitive and had no reaction!

    They offer a “gluten-friendly” menu, which has few options, but all of the options are delicious and filling. I highly recommend the Oatmeal Pancake. It is massive and so good! The staff is friendly and helpful as well.

    They have one gluten friendly pancake option. They warned me that cross contact was very possible and I got sick from eating a salad with no dressing. This is not a safe place to eat, even though my dining party all enjoyed their food.

    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.

    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.

    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 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?
