We were in the Glenview area to go to BestBuy, but they were not open yet, so out came TripAdvisor to help us find a place for breakfast.

When we first arrived, I was a little frustrated that there appear to be a long line to wait, but when we asked for the wait time, it was a reasonable time. So we decided to wait, and I'm glad that we did.

My husband says that the breakfast at Egg Harbor Café is the best breakfast at a restaurant that he has ever eaten. It is definitely in the top five of breakfasts that I've had, as well.

The service was prompt, efficient and friendly. Though the restaurant was crowded, I didn't feel afraid that I would knock into someone or something on my way to the restroom.

I loved their strawberry/orange juice; and while we didn't take advantage of it at this time, I liked the option for a carafe of juice to share at a table.

We are looking forward to eating at the Egg Harbor Café again...soon!

I enjoy having breakfast at Egg Harbor. I especially enjoy the Lobster Scrambler. Everything is great and I love the fresh brewed tea.

“Rancid children's meal”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2013 via mobile

Well it would have been an excellent rating however, our 4 year old ordered the Mac and Cheese. We kept insisting he eat some and he kept refusing. We kept making deals for him to eat some. Finally I tasted it and it was definitely rotten/rancid/disgusting. And it was some awful from a box mixture as well. You would think with such great menu items for adults they would put some effort into the children's meals. They compted the mac and cheese and brought him the mini burgers meal for free, but really, our whole meal should have been compensated. We were worried we would be sick, fortunately we were ok.
