Excellent from start to finish. Friendly greeting, friendly server, fast, engaging service. Breakfast quality was excellent. I had the biscuits and gravy and grits. I would highly reccomend both.

They have several kinds, but our favorite is Barrington Benedict. The creamy sauce is the perfect blend of lemon to butter, and eggs. Topped off with a tiny ring of black olive, and wonderful potatoes side dish . And their Swedish pancakes with lingonberry butter and sauce is crazy! We Dalit both breakfasts to get a taste of both!

This is my favorite brunch restaurant in my old hometown - and it never fails to disappoint! Great service, and great original food choices! The new Rosti looked great, I always love the Shawna's Sun Up Parfait (yogurt, granola, fruit, walnuts), the Cinnamon Roll French Toast is fantastic, and they make perfect poached eggs on english muffins!

Egg harbor has many locations but each of them has a special place. We love this one in particular because its close and its in a beautiful area. You can grab breakfast and spend the rest of the day shopping, walking, exploring and more. Great!!!

Breakfast was very good, large selection of items. Staff was friendly. In particular our waitress was a sweetheart! My only negative is the noise level. The restaurant was full, but it was difficult to hear the people at my table when we were trying to converse. Outside seating would have been great on the day we were there, but it... More

Fantastic atmosphere and great food. Make sure to get there early or you'll be waiting a while. Otherwise worth it. Definitely a main stay for us
