My wife and I have been eating here since they opened. I have a few favorites, while she more often tries the frequently changing special. Today, in celebration of my retirement next week, I took eleven members of my department there for lunch at one. They close at two. Michelle really went to a lot of trouble to be sure... More

We had a very nice family breakfast. The wait was easy with the complimentary coffee and other DG window shopping spots nearby. Nice variety for the whole family...giant pancakes for my son, tasty Skillets for me and my wife, and cheese grits for my daughter. On a Sunday morning, it can get a little loud and you may feel the... More

I'm an omelette kind of guy and my wife more of a crepe person, but we both can found something we like. The menu is big and varied, The portions are not gigantic but we often bring something home. Coffee is great,service staff are warm and friendly, and I never had a bad meal.

My wife and 2 kids (9 & 12) have eaten here multiple times. It is one of the few restaurants we can always agree upon and where everyone can find something on the menu that meets their needs. I like that there are multiple healthy options. My family are more traditional breakfast restaurant eaters. We always get good service and... More

My 4-year-old and I went there around 10:30 am on a Saturday and there was a 20 minutes wait. My son was hungry but the waiting outside on a sunny summer day was not that bad. Finally we went in and we ordered something typical you would order for breakfast. The food was large in portion and both my son... More

If you're anywhere near Downers Grove, you've heard of Egg Harbor. As you'll see on their logo, they've been an institution since 1985. Most popular for their breakfast offerings, they're open into the afternoon for brunch and lunch too. You would expect the service to suffer, given the volume of patrons served - especially on the weekends. But it doesn't.... More

This place is in a charming area of Downer's Grove and has an amazing breakfast menu. If you want it, they have it. Even the kids menu is one of the biggest I have seen. Food was terrific as was the service. Kudos!

I've been coming to this cafe since it opened (there are others in the chain that I used to visit occasionally, but a little further drive). The staff is always very friendly and willing to work with you on special orders or allergies. They offer a different flavored coffee (actually flavored beans - not just a pour in sugar) every...
