Our favorite restaurant in Scarborough for breakfast has a great lunch too.
|The Egg and I|
My wife and I had been to the Egg and I in Scarborough several times before we moved to Maine last June. It was one of the first restaurants we went to for breakfast after we located to the state and continued to be impressed by their great food. We noticed some really interesting items on their lunch menu, so we thought we’d stop by for a lunch.

Chicken Apple Walnut sandwich, which is touted as, “A blend of chicken, apples, walnuts, celery, green onions and mayonnaise. Served with lettuce and tomato on grilled raisin bread.”
I felt like a burger so I ordered the Cheddar Cheeseburger, a “Grilled burger patty topped with melted Cheddar cheese, shredded lettuce, sliced tomato and mayonnaise.” I ordered extra “crisp bacon” on my burger for an additional charge.

Our server, Steve, was excellent throughout our experience. His timing was spot-on, he anticipated our needs, for example, he asked me if I would like a dressing for the cottage cheese. When he refilled our waters he included additional lemon. His friendliness was appreciated.
