I had breakfast for lunch here yesterday and thoroughly enjoyed it. The food was good, the staff friendly and there is plenty of parking in the lot out back. Well worth a try.

From time to time, I enjoy having breakfast at Egg Harbor Cafe. Food is consistent and like that they give you a pitcher of coffee to keep your cup full.

I often meet a coworker for breakfast. EHC never lets you down. Great choices, interesting options (b'fast quinoa bowl for example) and add-ins for your omlette. Can't go wrong. They do it with style.

Never seen one. My loss. Wonderful and unusual menu. Eggs a dozen ways I never heard of. I had the chicken sausage and goat cheese scrambler. It was out of this world.

It's all the little touches along with great service and delicious & wholesome foods that make this such a great place. The decor is fun and quirky. The coffee is GOOD and a carafe is placed on your table along with a carafe of lemon water. The menu is varied with something for everyone. I appreciate the organic choices and... More

I've been here so many times--at various locations and they are very consistent! Love it when you order coffee and they leave an insulated carafe on the table. Breakfast offerings are pretty much standard fare: eggs, bacon, sausage, pancakes, you-know-the-drill...but I think their potatoes are better than most. And their skillet dishes are pretty darn good!

Good food at reasonable prices. So good it is too crowded on Sundays. If you are free on a weekday, the place is ideal.
