ZEST: The Egg & I’s winning formula for breakfast
Steamboat Springs — 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 downtown 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 themes, from the portobella mushroom and asparagus-filled Hiker to the portobella, ham, Swiss cheese layered croissant of the Parisian or the crab cake. Other favorites include a variety of omelettes, specialty waffles and whole wheat pancakes, as well as Skillets, from the ham, bacon and hollandaise-filled Cambridge to the seasoned steak strips, roasted peppers, onions and cheese Texas Skillet.
Its Southwestern fare is also popular, including such favorites as Huevos Rancheros, Sunrise Chile Rellenos and Santa Fe Huevos. Non-egg dishes and specials like the Mediterranean Frittata and Egg Byte omelette cater to the weight-watcher crowd.
Cappuccinos, lattes and other specialty coffee drinks wash it all down, as do flavored hot chocolates for the kids and pure squeezed orange juice. For lunch, comes creative sandwiches, salads and homemade soups.
Its large capacity also makes it perfect for family gatherings, business meetings and more, complete with a free private meeting room with Wi-Fi and customizable menus. Patio Seating Available
“It’s our large menu served in a relaxed environment with friendly service that sets us apart,” says Bradley.
