Great coffee. Can you even eat breakfast without good strong coffee? Egg Harbor offers one of the best cups around. Eggs and breakfast meats are good. My husband goes for the Swedish pancakes. I like their oatmeal with alternative milk. Service is incredible. Comfy atmosphere.

Wow, amazing. We had breakfast before a trip around the City of Chicago - fabulous. The staff are very friendly and helped us poor Brits decide what was what. We didn't really need lunch! Yum. Recommend.

This place has always been our favorite even before our daughter Celeste started working here. The staff is always friendly and the food is always hot and tasty! I hope the Libertyville location will always be our neighborhood staple!

We have never been disappointed when we go to egg Harbor for a meal. The service is always very good and the food is always delicious. One of my favorites in the fall is the pumpkin soup. I wish they had it year round!!

I love this place. The food is excellent and the service couldn't be better. It's known for its breakfasts, of course, but they have plenty of great lunch options too. One minor minus point: their coffee carafes and to-go cups keep shrinking, shrinking, shrinking! Both...More

We had two breakfasts here, one after we couldn't get into the nearby Wildberry Cafe, which had a long wait. Very nice breakfasts, good portions, very friendly service. Easy to park in nearby parking lots. This place feels like a small town friendly family-owned place....More

It's busy here on Sundays right after Church, but they keep things moving quick. I ordered the blueberry pancakes, which were great until I discovered that one of them was not cooked all the way through. Nasty, but I let it go because at that...More
