At first glance, this eating establishment is unassuming. Sitting in the midst of a small strip mall, one would think they are entering a dental office, nail salon or barber shop. Nothing could be further from the truth. You better know that the outside does not dictate what's on the inside. This medium-size restaurant packs a punch! You'd enjoy the... More

As a formen emplyee of Egg Harbor, I can say that all of their food is fresh, their kitchen is crazy clean, and the staff is always friendly and helpful. I still eat here at least 3 times a month. I aim to try something new each time, but I also love my regular order! They offer some amazing gluten-free... More

My family loves Egg Harbor so we go there pretty frequently. I went by myself after some tests at had which called for a fast. I ordered their biscuits and gravy, and I have to say I wasn't impressed. I'm also not a big fan of their Harbor potatoes. They are kind of dry and tasteless to me. I do... More

I am not one for restaurant chains, but this one is my exception! My husband and I always try to order something new when we go and haven't found something that isn't amazing. The fresh preserves are out of this world! I could eat them by themselves! The coffee is the best cup I've ever had! The staff is always... More

Went here in the spring for breakfast for the first time. We arrived at around 9:00 am and there was already a pretty long wait. That tells me right away that the food has to be pretty good. we were told the wait was about 15 minutes and, true to word, they paged us about 15 minutes later. Coffee was... More

This is a sprawling but still quaint cafe that serves delicious breakfast. I had a take on eggs benedict which had fantastic hollandaise sauce. Service was quick and laid back.

We had breakfast the other day and the food was surprisingly good. It was clean and our server was on the ball. Their potatoes are not greasy at all. I would recommend checking this place out.
