Excellent lunch!

So many choices! I decided on a half egg salad sandwich with a cup of Vegetarian Vegetable soup. The egg salad sandwich was amazing. It was served on toasted sour dough bread with a tomato and avocado. A small house salad with poppyseed dressing was served on the side. The soup was hearty and... read more

Loved the eggs Benedict, and my server was helpful and quick. The place was filled in the late morning (11:20), which I didn't expect: lots of ladies getting together with their friends and catching up.

The only issue I have is that there is too much to chose from, everything on the menu looks great. The place gets busy but the service is very fast and therefore you don't have wait long, they give you one of those flashing things so you can hang around in the sun in the summer and wait. When you... More

Great place to eat. They have good food and a nice atmosphere. Service is excellent, and since we were there to catch up with each other,it was particularly nice of staff not to rush us. We were able to sit and chat without pressure to leave. Their prices are moderate, but food great.

My wife and I were looking for a place to have breakfast having just landed at O'hare. What a great place. The service was very good and friendly. The coffee was prefect, my wife and I had the hazelnut, cinnamon. I had the biscuits and gravy meal while my wife had the SF omelet daily special. I love getting biscuits... More

Love the breakfast here and would come every weekend if I could. It's a popular place and there is often a wait for a table but it's worth it. Good breakfast selection and good service. I really enjoy the granola & yoghurt with fruit but the pancakes are really good too. There I'd always a special on offer which is... More

It's good but not the best . I prefer walker bros. but is good to try . I'm always looking for pancakes or waffles . The place is nice but if comparing prices well it just depends on what you are looking for.

The reception desk was friendly and seating was prompt. The food was OK, but not exemplary. Service was rushed. Server failed to inform of refills on beverages

Egg Harbor is an excellent choice for breakfast or lunch. Their menu as you'd expect features many egg-based dishes, but the other things are very tasty as well. On my most recent visit I had a chicken salad entre, two large scoops of salad with mandarin oranges, apple slices and an English muffin. My wife's egg casserole was equally worthwhile.... More

Can't miss - great breakfast meals. We've eaten here many times and even though there is usually a wait - its totally worth it. Everything from eggs benedict to seasonal breakfast items is awesome.
