Great Breakfast

This is one of those restaurants that, upon leaving, we always say that we have to come back soon. Although they have a luncheon service, we usually have breakfast. The menu is always changing and the dishes are always excellent. They have a daily special which is usually very good. They have a... read more

Egg Harbor has a high-rent location and nice décor. However, its (many) offerings, produced in an attractive open kitchen, are no better than typical diner fare and, in some cases, not as good. For example, poached eggs ordered soft were not soft -- plus, they were tiny. Sausage patties were greasy, the mark of cooks who either do not care... More

Four of us ate here last weekend and as usual had a great experience. My husband and I are regulars but the couple we were with hadn't been in several years. I had the Swedish pancakes and a side of sausage patties. Husband had blueberry pancakes, our friends had an omlette and a skillet and some lemon pancakes. Service was... More

So wish we had an Egg Harbor in metro Indy. This is our fave breakfast spot when visiting the Fox Valley. Always accommodating. Fast and friendly service. Never have to wait long for a table - even on weekends. Coffee service is provided in the entry. Many choose to eat outside on the grassy treed lawn. Menu has something for... More

There were 12 ladies enjoying breakfast and of course each wanted their own check. There was no issue about this as there might have been at other places. The rosti is one of my favorites, being an egg harbor alum, but it was sub par this morning - not crisp enough. I did not complain and it seemed every other... More

Starting to walk Geneva on Swedish days and saw the restaurant while roaming. It has an extensive egg, pancake, and French toast menu. My wife had poached eggs and cheese grits. Which she declared as excellent. I had the cinnamon roll French toast Which was done well wit a side of bacon. The coffee was okay but not exceptional

Service is great, always quickly refilling water and coffee. Food is good, some dishes are spot on, others miss the mark a bit. Can be quite noisy too!

Prepare to wait for excellent service and delicious, well-presented food. This popular spot in historic Geneva won't disappoint. Lots of breakfast options with tasty potatoes and fruit and savory lunch selections. We like the skillets, omelets and eggs benedict. Sandwiches are accompanied with salad and potatoes. Outdoor patio can be enjoyed in nice weather.

Yogurt parfait was amazing. Banana bread was ok and didn't care for banana bread French toast. Pancakes, biscuits and gravy, skillet, we're all amazing! Sat out on lawn at table.

I thought it would be nice to celebrate Mother's Day at Egg Harbor Cafe in Geneva. It has been a family favorite of mine for years. I called and spoke to the manager/owner a week prior to the holiday and asked the procedure to get a table. He offered call a head seating, in which I understood which meant, 1.... More
