The Egg & I

The Egg & IThe Egg & I has been around for several months now, and I just got around to trying it out.  I’d heard good things, but I’m not typically a big go out for breakfast person.  I was up early last Saturday and had some free time so I decided to pop in for some good breakfast.

We got a booth and I promptly ordered a Diet Coke.  I just can’t do the coffee thing.  There were several things on the menu that looked good, and I was having a tough time decided what to get.  I was leaning towards the breakfast quesadillas, but was still feeling very wishy-washy.  When our server, Ramona stopped by to take our order I decided to ask for her help.  She said the quesadillas are good but her favorite thing is the Athena Scramble which is scrambled eggs, feta cheese, tomatoes, asparagus, and portabella mushrooms.  That sounded pretty good to me so I took her advice and went for it.  My sister got the Mediterranean frittata which is egg whites, sundried tomatoes, chicken and cheese.

The Egg and IOur food arrived fast, and I thought mine was really, really tasty.  I was very happy with Ramona’s suggestion and ate almost all of my eggs.  It came with an English muffin and breakfast potatoes which were also delicious.  My sister enjoyed her frittata as well.

As impressed as I was by the food, I was even more impressed by the service we received from Ramona.  She was a fantastic waitress!  She was impeccably polite, she offered great suggestions, and she was quick and efficient despite the number of tables she was serving.  I suggest asking for her section the next time you visit.  I’d also highly recommend the Athena Scramble.

spinout1When I first discovered Spinout a couple of years ago I could not believe my eyes. I had no idea there was a place in town where you could find brands such as Juicy Couture, True Religion, T-Bags, Rachel Pally, Shoshanna, etc. I thought I had died and gone to retail heaven. I had been under the impression that as long as I was living in Tyler I would be destined to a life of internet shopping, never being able to see the items I so strongly lusted after in person. Sure, there are some other nice boutiques in Tyler. However, none of them have the current, hot right NOW selection that Spinout offers. Although they are primarily an adult clothing store, for children they even offer a good selection of Juicy Kids!

Spinout first opened in 1986 as a paint-your-own tee shirt store (hence the name Spinout). Through the years it evolved into Tyler’s leading boutique for stylish and unique finds. Spinout remains a family owned business, and the mother/daughter team that run it travel to NYC and LA on a regular basis to stay on top of the latest trends.

Be sure to check out Spinout online at, but you also really need to pay a visit to this store in person, especially if you love designer clothes as much as I do. You will be amazed!
