Neighborhood favorite!

We eat here almost every weekend for breakfast. Great food with a wide variety of options. A lot of healthy options along with the regular yummy fare. The staff always recognizes us and we love seeing their friendly faces. Always a pleasant experience!

This is our favorite place in DG for breakfast. Always very good food, always excellent service. On the weekends, it is always busy. We have tried many of the breakfast entrees and have never been disappointed. My husband's favorite (in the fall) is the combo with the pumpkin pancakes. When my daughter and her husband are in town, this is... More

We have breakfast quite regularly at Egg Harbor (there are several close to where I live, but Downers Grove is the closest) and have never had a bad meal. Food and service are always excellent. There are healthy choices and not-so-healthy choices and you can completely customize your breakfast. Prices are competitive but I would happily pay more for consistent... More

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 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.
