I am a long time fan of Egg Harbor Cafe back when there used to be just a few restaurants. The food used to be great. However, I wasn't overly impressed this time. Food was average.

We have been going here since they opened and always have a lovely time at Breakfast/Brunch. We try to go early before the Church Crowd lets out or later after the Big rush has passed so we don't have to wait long. Love the Coffee Pots on the table so you don't have to wait wait for a refill. Eggs... More

I have been to Egg Harbor Cafes in Rockford, Lake Geneva and Libertyville and they're always 5 star. My recent visit to the Rockford location was just as enjoyable as the rest. I ordered the Door County Melt which is all white-meat chicken salad blended with dried cranberries, toasted pecans and crisp diced apples grilled on multigrain bread with Jack... More

The egg as are free range 😀😀😀😀 this place is fantastic, the staff are happy and attentive the decor is lovely, they cook eggs anyway you like, the portions are big, ok so it costs a little more but so what? You get what you pay for, and as long as battery hens are not being used then I'm happy.

It's difficult to find a restaurant that's good at accommodating dietary restrictions, especially gluten-free for a celiac's person, but this place did it wondetfully. Our waitress was friendly and knowlegeable when I asked if they could safely work with my dietary... More

The interior of the restaurant is homey and country.the menu is extensive.I had the eggs benidect with spinach, artichoke and mushrooms. The fresh squeezed orange/strawberry juice is delicious the reason I didn't give five stars is the juice the waitress forgot it which happens but when we asked for it and she brought it which was at the tail end...
