Excellent traditional breakfast

Clearly better than Naperville despite the same menu. Busy but extremely efficient. Very well staffed and service is quick and friendly. Coffee pot is on the table for extra cups. Traditional breakfast only $5.99- eggs over easy, their home fries, sausage and bread. Coffee $2.49. Third time here... read more

Traditional breakfast only $5.99- eggs over easy, their home fries, sausage and bread. Coffee $2.49. Third time here without a single concern.

Our family likes Egg Harbor and we have been touring the various locations. This is our favorite. It isn't as noisy as some of the others, great light from the windows, friendly service and great food. The gluten free pancakes are pretty good, the staff is helpful at making substitutions or for helping accommodate different preferences.

You may have to wait, but the wait is worth it! Food and service are consistently good and atmosphere is comfy, tho sometimes a little loud.

Very busy place in Downers Grove with good coffee and plenty of breakfast offerings. I had a business meeting in the morning and we enjoyed our entrees along with the friendly service. Parking spots all around the place seemed easy to find, at least at this time of the day. (9 AM) Menu was very full with just about anything... More

A very good breakfast place. We went on a Saturday morning, it was packed. They serve a very solid breakfast, everything was nicely done. Service could not have been better. I can see why they have such a following! Only complaint, unless you like the early farmhouse done modern with a bunch of plastic roosters around, the atmosphere was pretty... More
