Great Breakfast food, Fair Prices, just little busy

I come here very often. Seems to be less because they seem to get busier and the waits seem to be long. They have great breakfast food. From eggs, to pancakes, to bacon(if you ask to make crispy they will), favored coffee. Sometimes you get good service, sometimes just okay because they seem to be... read more

Couldn't enjoy our meal because we were too busy swatting flies.. one of them particularly doing the backstroke in my pink lemonade. Given we're in mid winter my guess is that this place isn't as clean as it probably should be. Our waitress quickly rambled off dressing, annoyed we even asked and was overall just rude. My advice.. go to... More

Give us a choice of which meal have to have at a restaurant and we'll probably choose breakfast 75% of the time. The Egg Harbor Cafe in Lake Geneva is our second favorite breakfast restaurant in Wisconsin. Often people are lined up on Main Street waiting to get inside, however things move along quickly. Once inside you are never rushed.... More

I have eaten here numerous times. Almost always I was delighted with the freshness, and quality service. Their homemade juice and strawberry jam are really very good. That was until the last time I ate there. I ordered a Meatless salad as the main course. We were enjoying our food (my extended family), When I pulled several hairs out of... More

We had the lunch specials a turkey sandwich and a pot roast sandwich. They were both really good. But I had been there before and the breakfast was amazing. It's a little pricey but the food is really good. Would definitely return again.

Not our idea of a comfortable place to enjoy a lunch. Looked like a tourist trap to us. Thanks, anyway.

The breakfast here is fabulous. The menu selection is impressive for breakfast. My husband had a skillet with ham, cheese, and veggies. I had the chillaquilles, tortillas with chorizo in a tomatillo sauce with cheese and avocado. I've enjoyed this dish in México and it was just like it. They had two types of coffee and even offered us a... More

Breakfast is my favorite meal, and Egg Harbor has some good offerings. They have a fairly large menu with the usual choices and also some specialty-type pancake and French toast options. The coffee is plentiful and good. The place is always packed so that's a good indicator. You can also get lunch here but I've only tried breakfast.

Been here several times and have never had a bad meal or poor service. Very nice atmosphere for couples or families with ample seating. I've become kind of a Coffee Snob unfortunately and this place passes too. Great Swedish pancakes if your into that kind of thing.
