Egg Harbor is one of our hits at both Eli Jay and back home in Arlington Heights. The coffee is always fresh and the selections filling. Definitely a must visit for a home town breakfast. Great place also for a morning business meeting or coffee with a friend or two. Tip: Try the flavored coffees in one of their uber... More

Egg Harbor Cafe in downtown Arlington Heights is OK, but there is nothing special that sets it apart as a unique breakfast restaurant. The service is good, but I found nothing special about the food except the cost In my opinion, rather expensive for breakfast. The place is small and noisy and accommodations for larger parties are crowded. Often long... More

A wonderful variety of breakfast and luncheon meals. Pancakes taste better here than any other place you might try. Food taste better here, fresher. Service is excellent with a staff of professionals. I like some specials like french toast with granola, blackberries and blueberries on top. Also like the Bacado omellet with 3 eggs, bacon, avocado.

Great coffee, wonderful wait staff (very attentive but not overly so). The wait staff suggested a lobster crepe and I must admit it was delicious.

This is the best breakfast food place I have been to. My all around favorite is the pecan cinnamon pancakes. But all of the food there is especially delicious. Service is always prompt and getting the food is quick. Don't be afraid if you get there and there is a line at the door. They keep things moving fast, and... More
