This place started out as a 5 Star in my book but recently I have changed my opinion. Before Geneva Egg Harbor opened we would drive to Wheaton Towne Square to EH and then Naperville occasionally after they opened. Since Geneva Egg Harbor opened my husband and I meet friends here every Saturday for breakfast. Our Favorite Place! About a... More

Hands down the BEST breakfast & lunch place on the PLANET! We have been coming here for years. The menu choices range from healthy to hearty. You just KNOW you are tasting homemade food that is freshly prepared, not just some slop thrown together!. Excellent service with a smile greets you when you walk in. We had the smoked salmon...

We love Egg Harbor. They have things most places don't offer like organic coffee, turkey bacon, grass fed meat (for burgers), and their food is very good. They also offer certified gluten free options from Sweet Ali's. This review would have been five stars except for a waitress named Annette. We went there on an early afternoon during the week....

We are deeply sorry that you had several bad experiences with one of our servers. We strive to be the best restaurant in Geneva and her attitude towards you was unacceptable. We try to create a positive and friendly culture and behavior such as hers will not be tolerated. She was severely disciplined and made fully aware of her actions.... More

Cannot pass up the Barrington benedict. They make the best hollandaise sauce plus the breakfast potatoes.

We really like this restaurant. Service is always great. Wait times for tables are reasonable. They keep people moving. The food is good. Menu has some unique items. I recommend the "Smart Start" breakfast! It is healthy and delicious. I recommend trying this restaurant.

The food was very good and the portions are large enough to share. The service is fast and efficient, only complaint is the very small waiting area with the long lines. I guess that goes with good food and good service!

Gary is the restaurant's manager and is always welcoming. The food is great. We have recently discovered the Georgia Grits. Excellent. You cannot go wrong here. The combo plate with Cinnamon pancakes is excellent. If you like Eggs Benadict, try the Eggs Michael. Again, excellent. And then afterwards go across the street to the Little Traveler store. You will get... More

Meeting my niece and her husband here for breakfast was a wonderful start to our day in Geneva. All dishes were prepared with fresh ingredients, delivered by a friendly staff and was enjoyed by all. We each ordered a different egg dish to start and the flavored coffee was an added treat, and everyone had high praise for their individual... More
