All the Hype! I will pick a better dish next time.

This was a very cute place and the food was great! We came upon this on our last day in Geneva. It is a little pricey but we'll worth the visit! Highly recommended.

Great breakfast place - but get here early, or you may face a long wait! Good open atmosphere and the food is very good! Try something different and give this a try. A little off the beaten path of downtown Geneva, but worth it. Fast, friendly service, too. We spent about $15 per person before tip.

When visiting the historical shopping district of Geneva, IL and you are looking for some tasty breakfast, you must go to Egg Harbor. Located across from Little Traveler in the square, surrounded by the yellow buildings. It's a popular place and sometimes there is a wait but the taste and quality of your meal makes up for any waiting time... More

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. Food is fresh and plentiful and the atmosphere... 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.
