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... read 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

I am truly excited about this little place. I was in Geneva for a business trip and wanted to visit the no. 1 restaurant in Genea. So I asked to be brought here for lunch. We didnt have to wait on a Friday afternoon and were brought to our table immediately. Waiter was amazing. Not pushy and was attentive enough.... More

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
