If a person can't find something that will make them happy on this huge menu, then they aren't trying. Ask if they have a "special" juice if you are there for breakfast. We had strawberry and orange. Very tasty. The portions are very large which can be nice if you want to save some for a snack... read more

Very tasty. The portions are very large which can be nice if you want to save some for a snack later.

I frequent the Egg Harbor - usually at someone else's invitation - but it never disappoints. The service is ALWAYS friendly, the food is good and it's a decent value.

went for family brunch. Short wait, very courteous service. Food was good. Little crowded but good place for informal eating. I would go again.

We went here on a Saturday morning with our kids. The wait wasn't too long, which was terrific. The restaurant is large, feels like a "farmhouse" breakfast joint -- which was what we were looking for. But it felt like a diner for older people (even though it was loud) -- and we were surprised that very few kids were... More

My sister lives in Libertyville so we have visited Egg Harbor Cafe about six times and have been very happy every time. They are always busy so plan on waiting for a table but once you sit down, service is great and the food comes fast. I have ordered something different every visit and have loved everything there.

My best friend was getting married on Aug 3rd in Libertyville. So the day of the wedding we wanted to get the groom a good breakfast to start his special day and went to the Egg Harbor Cafe. We were seated in the patio area, which was nice and relaxing. The food was tasty, but the size portion kept me... More

Found this place on Yelp and TA while in town for the weekend. It was delicious with a wide variety of breakfast selections. The missus loved her Key West Crepes and my San Antonio Skillet was to die for. Will go back if near again

We've been going to Egg Harbor for years. We just moved to this area and tried the Libertyville location - and it didn't disappoint! It was nice to be able to sit outside on a nice day. The service is always impeccable - never an empty glass, they'll even bring you a carafe and offer you a drink to-go! The... More

We had a group of 6 friends, everyone had something different, and each of us was quite pleased with what we ate---from Bison burger to customized vegetarian omelet. Nice variety of unique entrees for breakfast & lunch, & they even offer a gluten-free menu, which was a special treat to my husband who is usually rather limited in choices at... More
