An eclectic assortment of breakfast options that all sound fabulous- it was hard to decide! I had the quinoa breakfast bowl- delicious and healthy! The bottomless cup of intelligentsia coffee made my day. We arrived at 8AM on a Saturday and were seated promptly. By 8:05AM there was a long line at the door! It is worth the wait though!... More

Egg Harbor is a great breakfast/brunch location. They offer a variety of breakfast items without being a traditional pancake house. All the items are fresh. My favorites are the banana bread French toast, pumpkin pancakes, summer in Italy French toast, and the strawberry-orange juice. They get very busy on the weekend so I suggest calling ahead for a table to... More

I took my family on a weekend getaway to Chicago. While searching TA for a breakfast restaurant I came across Egg Harbor. The food was delicious my two boys (age 9/10) enjoyed there breakfast. One had the Belgian waffles and the other the Swedish Pancakes. However, there was a hair on one of the plates. Me and my wife enjoyed... More

Love their pancakes, the traditional breakfast and everything is so good. You probably have to wait on sundays but it's worth it. The service es excellent to.

I'm one to review, rarely if ever to "rave". Egg Harbor gets a "rave". This is as good as breakfast gets. In some ways it is a typical breakfast place - busy with a line out the door on weekend mornings, a little loud, loaded with families coming from church and eggs fly out of the kitchen. The menu, however,... More

For a gluten free diner, this is a great place for breakfast. They have many options that are all delicious. Notably, their cinnamon rolls are terrific! The cheesy grits are spicey and moist, if not a bit too cheesy for me. The service is always attentive and pleasant. I think the employees like working here, which is a good indication... More

Egg Harbor Cafe is a great place for breakfast. It gets busy and they handle the volume as well as you can imagine. The food is really good quality. I don't think you can go wrong with any choice. Go early if you don't want to wait, or try and hit the "after breakfast but not yet lunch" lull. Good... More

The Egg Harbor restaurant has been a consistent high quality breakfast/lunch option in Arlington Heights for over 10 years. We enjoy the variety of the menu and every choice is outstanding. You get a quality entree with many lunch and breakfast options. My husband loves the Sir Duggan and they have many healthy options.

One of the new style of breakfast restaurants... high quality food that has never disappointed. This is not your old fashioned diner, Egg Harbor does strive to make food that not only tastes good, but is relatively healthy. I have never had a dish there dripping with grease or butter. They constantly are changing the menu to provide new items... More

This is one of the better places in Arlington Heights for breakfast... food is very good as is the service. It is a bit pricey but it is worth it... coffee is excellent. It can get a little noisy but its still worth the visit.
