Yum, yum.

Egg Harbor is a local chain, but you always feel like you're eating at a local gem. Made to order breakfast and sandwiches. Friendly, efficient staff. It's worth it to look for a parking spot!

It is located in a very nice cute area for Arlington heights. The food here was lets just say decent. The coffee I got, Mocha was very good and so were the harbor potatoes. But the rest of the meal or I guess the main entree which was a aztec omelette was not very good, average at the best. I... More

Egg Harvor was recommended by our daughter to meet at for breakfast well visiting her in Arlington Hgts. Funny that Imlooked them up and agreed that the reviews were very good. We met her and we had our 16 yr old grand daughter with us. We're sat down at a table with a short 5 minute wait. Our server was... More

When we visit Egg Harbor .... we wonder ... why don't we eat breakfast here more often? Just reading their diverse menu makes your mouth water .... service is more than excellent with a smile on each & every person's face! We always enjoy their homemade jams - no little packets of jelly for them! Food is served quickly &... More

Great breakfasts and lunches! Their healthy Smart Start breakfast dish is also VERY tasty, and make sure you stop in at lunch time and have their Door County Chicken Salad

We visited this restaurant for the 2nd time for breakfast/lunch. We were seated promptly. I ordered the Special, a Sicilian wrap which came with potatoes and a salad. My wife ordered Joes healthy breakfast. Both were delivered quickly and were delicious. We will definitely return when in the area.

I've been here many times, still lives up to the hype. Great, fresh breakfast items. The specials are always good, but I really like the Eggs Benedict. Sometimes it can be a long wait, especially on the weekends, but its well worth it!

The best sandwiches and soups. Salads and breakfast items are always fresh. There is something for everyone. You can have half sandwich with salad or soup. Also you can substitute potatoes for fruit for a healthier choice. The wait staff is friendly and coffee carafes are on the table for all you can drink fresh and hot coffee. I have... More

Fabulous breakfast/brunch place. Busy and popular especially on a Sunday! Omlette's are delicious as are the eggs benedict. Coffee is good and plentiful, they even give you a to go cup when you leave! The coffee mugs are really cool too. Waitstaff are super friendly and attentive.
