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

I love how they are willing to accommodate whatever you want. You have many options to customize what is included and what size you want your meal to be even though the smaller portions are not on the menu.

This is a good place to bring the family for brunch. It can be very busy, so try to plan to visit during a time when other people aren't usually looking for a diner. The staff is friendly and the menu actually offers a really delicious, vegan quinoa option. Of course, the side potatoes are tasty. Pretty good place to... More

My wife loves going out for breakfast and I gave up on going anywhere other than Egg Harbor because if we go to another restaurant there will be no little discussion about how this or that isn't as good as Egg Harbor. I've always found the food is good and the service is efficient. Yes it can be loud because... More
