We have stopped in to other egg harbor locations for breakfast in the past. This location isn't that great. The portions are in the smaller side. 10 dollars for an egg Benedict that barely took up any space in the dish it was served in....More

BKNO, we are extremely disappointed to hear our location did not meet the expectations you have become accustomed to while dinning at other Egg Harbor locations. Our company goes the extra mile to ensure we are consistent at every location. As much as we understand...More

Typical American style breakfast. Open's early for jet-laggers. Kid friendly, polite staff. My grandpa loves to come here, wheelchair friendly. Large menu, good coffee.

Definitely not worth the price tag. All hype and little no substance. Too expensive for the little portions you get. I just don't get the hype.More

Stopped at Egg Harbor late on a Saturday morning. Hadn't been there in quite some time. We had to wait for a few minutes, but they were able to honor my request for a booth. Instead of ordering something that I had in the past,...More

During the week for breakfast around 10 wasn't busy. Coffee was good, breakfast omlette was a large serving. Everything was hot and fresh and I was glad we found this (tucked out-of-the-way) place. Server was awesome. Place is upscale so be prepared to pay for...More
