This place is a fantastic breakfast/lunch place! It is sunny and cheerful. The wait staff is very friendly and leaves carafes of coffee or soda on your table when you order a cup. The food is delicious and in many cases, very unique! The Door County Chicken Salad sandwich is a "melt", and not to be missed. The Shawna's Sun... More

Country kitchen feel, perfect little breakfast/brunch/lunch place. We happened to check it out just in time as they close early (2:00 p.m.). They make everything: egg skillets, quiches, crepes, chicken salad,etc. Their Tomato Bisque soup was superb! They don't just give you a glass of ice tea, they give you the glass plus a carafe for refills. Truly a great... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant by accident after getting off the Metra train from Chicago. Wow, was it a delightful surprise. They had a terrific menu, that included a nice variety of vegetarian dishes. They wait staff was efficient, and the food spectacular. Prices are very reasonable.

I go here every year with my family, and it never disappoints. It's always packed, but for good reason. The omelette are great.

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 large selection of omelets and skillets but... 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
