It is always such a pleasure to come to Egg Harbor Cafe. Lunch is always reasonable, so much to choose from and delicious. One of our favorite places.

They offer breakfast and lunch on their extensive menu. My frittata came hot and fresh and tasty. My husbands pancakes were light and fluffy and came with fresh fruit with huge blackberries. The service was outstanding. The price was reasonable. The portions weren't huge, but just enough. They will even send you off with a to-go refill of coffee or... More

Egg Harbor Cafe provides a great spectrum of morning choices for the whole family. This is the perfect location for a family with small children to enjoy breakfast in a comfortable environment, at a great price, and to satisfy even the most discerning palette.

Their coffee is outstanding! I don't know why, but very smooth, never bitter. Lot's of items to choose from with options for healthy or the sausage gravy. Can be very crowded on Saturday and Sunday mornings, but the tables turn fairly quick. Parking in the lot can be hard, but there is a parking garage right across the street.

Lots of items to choose from. I didn't go fancy, just the traditional breakfast with eggs (which were cooked exactly as I ordered-a hard find sometimes), corn beef hash (yummy!), potatoes and an English muffin. They had a juice made there and hand squeezed outside of the pomegranate juice. Absolutely tasty although I couldn't tell you everything in it. If... More

Lots has changed downtown since I graduated from nearby Elmhurst College in 1983. Great to see so many watering holes and eateries which were lacking when I lived there. Egg Harbor was busy as expected on a Saturday morning. We only had to wait 5 mins or so though and sat down to good service, coffee and food. Many menu... More

OK, so here is the bottom line. Egg Harbor offers a broad selection of breakfast and lunch items. Food is good, service is attentive. Great variety of breakfast selections including some tasty creative items. Salads, sandwiches and other menu items make this is good choice for lunch too. Very kid friendly.

Can't say enough about our server, except his name (!) which I can't remember...a teenager who really knew his stuff and when he didn't went the extra mile to find out. We were in town visiting, went there with friends for breakfast. The menu has a lot of interesting as well as healthy choices. The décor is country cute, family... More

Been to Egg Harbor many times. Great food, fun decor, great service. Door County salad and melt are favorites. Don't miss it! Only open for breakfast and lunch.
