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. Ryan had a similar dish with jalepeno. Loved it. There is just so much variety. It's squeaky clean, especially the bathrooms. Service was excellent. For breakfast or lunch,... More

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! And they are served... More

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

I really like Egg Harbor's newly remodeled cafe. However, I much prefer eating lunch here rather than having their breakfast items. Their egg dishes are bland in our opinion, so are the potatoes they serve as a side. Pancakes and waffles are just okay. I think their sandwiches and soup type entrees are far better. We prefer Walker Brothers for... More

Great new space, always happy service, awesome food!! Now, if you are coming in on a weekend morning...you will probably wait..but it's worth the 20 minutes, usually quicker! Every server we have ever had over the years has been a delight!! Take the family for those special occasions for breakfast, or go every day!! Egg harbor is wonderfully yummy!!
