Egg Harbor Wannabe

My wife and I went here since there was little waiting time. The décor and menu tries to emulate Egg Harbor Café. Unfortunately, this restaurant did not come close. The food is okay, however it certainly is not great. I'll stick with Egg Harbor Café or Wildberry.

I got a recommendation to try Egg'Lectic Cafe from the front desk clerk at my hotel. I was very impressed. Besides the screaming child that got sat next to me at the end, it was a very quite and sweet restaurant. I was immediately greeted upon entering with a great smile, and brought to my table. I ordered the daily... More

Unsure of what to expect when my wife had me "just drive" in a particular direction initially felt like a breakfast-induced hostage situation, but when we arrived at Egg'lectic it was anything but an eggcentric delight. Namely, it was, last egg pun I promise, eggactly what I was hoping for. Immediately off Algonquin Road and, as such, ridiculously easy to... More

You get what you pay for and you will pay more for breakfast here. With that said, this is not Denny's and there are a few of those in a short distance if price is your price point. Superior choices and meals. Large quantity and exceptional quality. Typically a line that you will need to wait in and parking is... More

My husband is very particular about his crepes. His comment was that this place has the best crepes he has every had. I have to agree that this place has great food and very friendly atmosphere. We will definitely be back again and it's worth your visit!

This is a reasonably priced breakfast diner. They have pretty much anything one could think of having for breakfast. I had French toast and my partner had an omelette. Both were delicious. I don't think you can go wrong eating here. The staff was very friendly.

Keep coming back; great omelettes, breakfast burritos, and regular breakfast items with just about anyone's favorite. Place is quite busy but they get you in and out as quickly as you'd like unless of course you linger which is OK as well. Appeals to small and big groups as well as servers are attentive and quick to please. Mine and... More
