As a late breakfast lover, this is my favorite place.

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... read more

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

I have been going to this restaurant for years and every time I go there I am not disappointed. The servers are always friendly and the food is consistently delicious. Expect to wait about 20-25 minutes, but they have coffee out and the time always goes by very quickly. They serve breakfast and lunch throughout the day. They always have... More

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
