ZEST: The Egg & I
Steamboat Springs — Wake up to wonderful.
With more than a decade-long history as one of Steamboat’s favorite breakfast spots, The Egg & I is conveniently located in Sundance at Fish Creek, halfway between town and the mountain. The eatery was established in 2004 by locals Bradley and Courtney Moline, and its winning formula has made it a local favorite ever since.
While its menu accommodates every taste under the sun, its award-winning Eggs Benedict top the list, coming in an array of choices, from the ham, bacon, asparagus, house-roasted crimini mushroom-filled Hiker’s Benedict to the homemade grilled Crab Cake Benedict.
Other favorites include a variety of omelettes, specialty waffles and whole wheat pancakes, as well as skillets, including the ham, bacon and hollandaise-filled Cambridge to the seasoned steak strips, roasted peppers, onions and crimini mushroom of the Texas Skillet.
The Egg & I also caters to those looking for non-egg dishes as well as healthier options with favorites like the Vera Cruz Chicken & Avocado Omelette, an egg-white omelette filled with white meat chicken, green chilies, house-roasted tomatoes and onions topped with fresh avocado and jack and cheddar cheese.
A new favorite on the menu is the California Avocado Toast with its thick-cut whole grain toast topped with fresh smashed avocado, extra virgin olive oil, lemon and Maldon sea salt.
Cappuccinos, lattes and other specialty coffee drinks wash it all down, as do fresh juices from their juice bar like the refreshing Kale Cooler made with kale, Fuji apple, cucumber and lemon.
For lunch comes creative sandwiches like the Bacon, Avocado Chicken, Chicken Apple Walnut and the Arizona Turkey, including the traditional favorites such as the Classic Club and Reuben, as well as salads and homemade soups.
The Egg & I’s large capacity and relaxing patio makes it perfect for family gatherings, business meetings and more. The restaurant also boasts a free private meeting room with Wi-Fi and customizable menus. Catering is also available.
“Serving our entire menu all day long, along with our creative seasonal specials, we have something for everyone in the family,” says Moline.
