Egg Harbor had been one of my favorite places for brunch. The last several visits were very disappointing, so we had not eaten there for at least 6 months. Improvements have been made by this Egg Harbor location, and it shows. I had the Summer...More

The Egg Harbor Cafe is one of my favorite breakfast restaurants. They offer fresh squeezed juices include strawberry, yummy. One item that I normally order is a protein wrap filled with healthy alternatives like egg whites, quinoa, avocado, and spices.

Always amazing service with quality meals. I try other spots buy keep returning to this dependable favorite. Fresh brewed iced teas are fantastic. Seasonal rotations provide a nice variety. Ask for a side of Bacon Jam!

I had the roast beef skillet. One of the best breakfasts I have ever had. Although it was very busy my party was seated in a booth in five minutes. Service was prompt and very attentive. Coffee service was good too.

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.
