Open for Breakfast & Lunch
Philadelphian's will know what I mean when I say The Egg and I is a cross between Little Pete's and Carman's Country Kitchen. It's got the feel of a Little Pete's - basic breakfast/lunch room bordering on a greasy spoon, and the creative menu of a Carman's. There are three boards filled with all the various specials the Egg and I offers.
I went for the New Yorker - "Dropped" (poached) eggs on corned beef hash and topped with Hollandaise Sauce. Picked up a couple of fresh baked muffins on the way out.
Other breakfast possibilities included banana and strawberry waffles, Irish and Italian eggs, and all manner of omelet combinations.
