Good food with many healthy options

Staff very friendly and accommodating. Food was prepared to my specifications and was very fresh. I was able to trade a salad for my potatoes with my omelet (made with egg whites) and they even had wheat English muffins. I was waiting for a friend that got stuck in traffic and they still seated... read more

I recently visited Downers Grove for the first time and chose this restaurant based off the reviews on Trip Advisor. I would give it an A+ all around. The staff was very friendly and attentive. The food was very diverse and delicious. We came with a wide variety of ages and everyone left beyond satisfied. There was a good mix... More

I've been overseas for 5 years. This was the American breakfast I needed to come home to. Blueberry pancakes with blueberry compote, two eggs fried over easy, four pieces of bacon, flavored coffee of the day including a complimentary to-go cup. A huge menu including gluten free options as well. Very polite and helpful staff.

Egg Harbor is a small chain of restaurants in the states of Illinois, Wisconsin, and Georgia. The food is of very good quality, and I enjoy the sunny, country decor of roosters and chickens everywhere. The menu is large, and you can substitute healthy ingredients (eggs white, skim milk etc) if you are watching your waistline. I always enjoy the... More

I live near an Egg Harbor, and have been to the one in Hinsdale, IL several times. The staff are always friendly, the food always good, and it's always a nice experience. It's usually crowded because it's only open for breakfast and lunch, and it's a little pricey, but it's quality food and service. I would recommend stopping in!

Lovely place for breakfast and brunches! Food is very good, however the ambient noise levels are very counter-comfort, especially when sharing a meal and commeraderie is why we come! Everything about the Egg Harbor Cafe, is completely enjoyable - except the noise level - when full and busy, I could barely hear my table-partner, above the "ambient Din!.

A busy Sunday morning contributed to a delay in obtaining the attention of our server. Extensive menu with a large variety of egg dishes, along with specialty pancakes and wraps.

Egg Harbor is a good breakfast spot, but nothing special. Relatively small portions and the waiters and waitresses were stretched to their limit. My water was never refilled.

Food is good, however, a lot of the items taste the same. Breakfast crepes are really good - and the salads are great.
