My wife had an appointment around the corner from this café so I figured I'd grab a bit while I waited. The service was adequate but the coffee was burnt. They exchanged it with an iced tea. I had a piece of pie that could have come out of a box. I woukd give them a second change but might... More

My husband and I have started going here after church most Sundays. The food is always good. The service is what distinguishes this restaurant from other brunches/breakfasts/lunches in the area. The people are always pleasant and courteous. They are always prompt with coffee, food and any extras. They check back with you during the meal. The check is always issued... More

(Have had the black bean burger here before... YUM!) We were in the mood for b'fast. The couple we were with - one had a traditional 2 eggs, sausage... More

We travel to Rockford 2-4 times each year and going to Egg Harbor for breakfast is always on our must-do list. Everything is very fresh and flavorful and the coffee is some of the best you'll find anywhere. The staff often goes out of their way to ensure we have a very pleasant experience.

We stopped here before shopping for Christmas gifts. There was about a 5 minute wait but that was worth the time. The two breakfasts that we ordered were very good. One was the Power Skillet with sweet potatoes and other veggies and eggs. The other was an egg dish with potatoes. Both were good and served with English Muffins and... More

Egg Harbor has the best breakfast in town, hands down. Great specials every day. Unique pancake and egg dishes. Awesome coffee - and they give you one to go when you leave! The service is unsurpassed; friendly, attentive and fast. Don't miss this one!

Our first trip to Rockford Il. Didn't have high hopes for nice eating. Egg Harbor Cafe was such a wonderful surprise. First, they heated the tea cup, and served it with a special brewing device that made the tea just perfect. So many good choices on the menu to choose from. Swedish pancakes were great and the salad ingredients were... More

This local neighborhood restaurant features a great menu, outstanding customer service and fair pricing. It is a great alternative to all the franchised breakfast choices.
