Very Good breakfast for personal or business in the Glen, Free Wi-Fi

Clean cafe with refreshing interior. Good wi-if. It appeared that most of the tables at 8:40 a.m. On a Monday were business meetings rather than casual diners. Lots of options for breakfast or lunch. Very proximal to the Metra stop at the Glen.

I've visited this restaurant countless times with my family. It gets crowded on weekend mornings, but don't let that deter you. The wait they quote you is almost always very accurate-- I've usually waited 10 minutes... 20 at the most, despite the crowd. (Plus you get free coffee while you wait, and they provide books for kids while waiting)... And... More

For breakfast you can not beat this place. Atmosphere is very inviting and the array of breakfast offering is very extensive. Service is fast and friendly.

We had breakfast here while visiting family during Christmas. We had to wait for a table, but not very long. It was worth the wait, because the food was delicious. Especially good are the Banana Bread French Toast, the custom Scramblers, the two-egg breakfast and their delicious jam. What's more, my sister and husband left with their iced tea in... More

While visiting the Chicago area, my family had breakfast here. The wait was minimal and we were seated. The staff was very nice and helpful with recommendations. The food was hot, fresh and correct. The coffee and juice were great and the staff were on top of keeping the coffee full. I had the blueberry pancakes with a side of... More

This Egg Harbor Café has the same yummy selections including seasonal offerings as other Egg Harbor Cafes do. I ordered my favorite - Cassie's Crepes - which were prepared just as I expected. The staff was very accommodating (we had a 14 month old along with) and the service timely! This Café, however, was a bit smaller than the one... More

Egg Harbor is consistently fantastic! From the minute you walk in until the minute you leave, everyone who works there treats you well. The food is consistently well prepared and is always fresh. Whatever they are doing, they are doing it right. Unfortunately, sometimes the wait is too long, but that's what you get with a great establishment. Keep up... More

I love, love, love Egg Harbor Cafe! My mom, grandma and I go often for lunch and we always have a fantastic time! The food is delicious, the atmosphere is comfy country grandma's kitchen, and the staff are so nice and friendly!

ordered breakfast special the eggs and sausage was not fully cooked and was served cold. The pancakes were fully cooked but just served cold. Hard to find wait staff to send back as once food was served they disappeared.
