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

A must for breakfast or lunch in Geneva! Usually a short wait but worth the effort. Great children's menu & terrific adult choices. Our families' choice when in town for brunch. Friendly efficient staff. Orange/strawberry juice a favorite!

First time at Geneva Egg Harbor. Have been to several other locations. Happy that we recently moved to St Charles and we now have a location within 10 minutes from our house! This will be a regular stop for us!

I love breakfast and this is the one place that my family and I go to. We love the food and the portions are huge. Skillets are fabulous. There is a line usually so expect to wait.

This is hands down my favorite place for breakfast! Every Saturday morning we meet friends for breakfast here. Like Cheers - "everybody knows your name." If you go in a few times they recognize you and make you feel as if you are a part of their family. There is little turnover of staff, which tells you they all like... More
