The breakfast food is very good. I've heard the coffee is good as well. Nice location next to the Main Street in downtown downers grove. Prices have gone up in comparison to the area competition based on the amount of food you get, but as others have noted, they have classed the atmosphere up a little.

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 the ambience (also spelled ambiance). Very enjoyable I would go back here if I am... More

My wife loves this place and over the years they have converted me too! The daily soups and specials are always tasty and offer great value. The other upside is that service is quick and very friendly. They happily make adjustments to any menu item and likely would make anything you want if it's in the kitchen.

Egg harbor really focuses on the staff and it shows. This place is always hopping and you need to be in before 9 on a weekend. Menu is good, have had occasional hit and miss on food but servers and managers always make it right. They serve Intelligista coffee and love to give you some to go. All the nice... More

My friend and I walked in about 10 minutes before they closed, and we were seated promptly and served without any rush. There are a wide variety of items, all freshly prepared. I really enjoyed the side salad that came with sandwiches. And the free iced tea to go was a pleasant surprise on a warm day. Since I was... More

I know I am going to catch heat for this review because I know many people that absolutely love this place! However, I walked in and walked out after looking at the nenu...in my opinion it was just way too expensive for a small amount of breakfast. $13.00 for pancakes, eggs and bacon....However, try it for yourself, but the price...

Egg Harbor is a neat place to meet up with family or friends for breakfast or lunch. Great menu and fresh items on the menu. Can also sit outside, weather permitting, and watch the commuters/trains go by.

We came on a Saturday for lunch and were seated right away. Parking was a little tricky as there is a farmers market nearby. We received prompt service and our food came fast. They have a few iced tea flavors and they keep it coming. We were even offered iced teas to go! Omelets were good. Potatoes were average.

Love this place! Used to live in Downers Grove until three years ago and loved to come here for their Door County Melt and Harbor Potatoes. Was in the area this weekend and this is the one restaurant I absolutely had to visit again. Still love it!
