Consistently great food

We have enjoyed Egg Harbor Cafe for years. There are several things you can count on - great food, good service (from some of the longest-serving and friendliest staff I've seen) and a full house. Wait times can be on the long side, especially on weekend mornings, but you won't be disappointed... read more

We go almost every Saturday! I believe this place is so great because of low employee turnover. It is nice to see the same manager, servers, and staff year after year. Keep up the great work! Some of my favorites include veggie power skillet, Todd's breakfast tacos, French toast, omelettes, pancakes/waffles, etc... It is all good!

Trip Advisor reviewers steered us right with this one! The food was worth the 20 minute wait. I ordered a skillet chock full of deliciously grilled veggies topped with egg, and my hubby enjoyed the special- a cinnamon roll stuffed waffle. Both entrees were unique and delicious. Wish we lived closer!

I know breakfast restaurants get busy on weekend breakfasts....I hate it but I deal with it. 45 min wait was well worth it. I am not a fan of omelets but the chorizo one sounded delicious....and it was. Top notch place in Geneva!

My husband and I dined mid week and had a great meal. The service was excellent, our omelets were delicious, and the price was worth it. Fabulous!

Enjoy Egg Harbor every visit! It is always busy and for good reason -- plenty of delicious breakfast selections. Gives you lots of energy for 3rd Street shopping! Good service and good prices.

It's pretty hard to go wrong at Egg Harbor. Like many of the "EH's"....it's off the main drag but that doesn't keep people from flocking to it. The service is always exceptional and despite the fact that you'll have to wait on the weekends for a table, the food arrives quickly but you never feel rushed. The greatest testament to... More

I have been to a few different Egg Harbor Cafe locations but the Geneva location is by far my favorite! The food is always incredible and the service is quick and friendly. You may have a bit of a wait on the weekends but the food is definitely worth it! They have something for everyone on the menu. I am... More

Egg Harbor is a great breakfast/lunch/brunch restaurant. they have a wide variety of different menu items. all the ones i have tried (waffles, pancakes, egg dishes, chili, salads sandwiches) are very good. there is often a line so, don't expect to get seated immediately.

Never been to an Egg Harbor Cafe before, but sounded like a good choice. There were seven of us family members who met there for breakfast before shopping in downtown Geneva. We were very pleased with the service and the food. They became very busy around 9:30, but the staff is very efficient. The food was outstanding! I think we... More
