We left Chicago's North Shore almost 3 years ago. We were regulars at Egg Harbor. Thankfully we live in Atlanta where Egg Harbor now has a store very close to our new home!

Delicious breakfast at a Sunday morning. 25 minutes waiting time, but it is worth it. Wifi however goes on and off.

I love eclectic breakfast restaurants. These are places that go way beyond the eggs and hash routine.Egg Harbor doesn't have a weak dish on the menu. The service is superior; the ambience is wonderful. I defy you to find a better place for breakfast, anywhere!!!

From a good perspective one of the better glenview breakfast options. (Albeit a quite low bar). Lots of interesting options both without and without eggs However the reason I don't come back and prefer other places is the service or lack thereof. An example-- on Mother's Day, a hostess went around with carnations asking women if they were mothers. If... More

ate here based on numerous recommendations. Our experience was yes to the service--friendly and attentive. But meh to the food--nothing special, quite bland, and disappointing given the general enthusiasm for the place. I had the door county sandwich, my wife one of the salads. my chicken salad was sweet, and not much on the sandwich, and the chicken was overshadowed... More

The tables turn fast so even a long line outside moves quickly. They take names and give those flashing, buzzing "table is ready" notifiers do that's a real plus. Great, varied menu with a few really weird options (Warsaw Sausage, really?) Mushroom and egg crepes are light and flavorful. Pancakes are flavorful and not too heavy. The home fries are... More

We come to Egg Harbor just about every weekend. The service is excellent and food is creative and delicious. Coffee carafe is left on the table- Intelligencia coffee is so good. We have tried just about everything. You can't go wrong.

This place was packed Saturday at 12:30 when we came in with two toddlers and 3 adults. Having come from the Kohl children's museum, our kids were hungry. The hostess told us 20 min, and we happily occupied them with some of the in-house Legos. Close to 35 min later we were called. Then the waitress who was super nice,... More

We were visiting friends in Glenview and had 2 opportunities to go out for breakfast. Egg Harbour had the best service. If you check breakfast options for Glenview on Trip Advisor you will find my 1st choice for breakfast was another restaurant. There was nothing special about our breakfast selections (We were a party of 6) other than the pleasant... More
