    Delicious. Eggs, bacon, home fries, and omelettes are all available. Last time I was there, they had added GF pancakes and cinnamon rolls to their GF menu! The pancakes were wonderful.

    Went in this morning with my family. My youngest daughter who has Celiac disease ordered of the Gluten-free menu. The food was fantastic! Our wonderful waitress, Grace, was aware of Celiac and understood the importance of my daughter's food. My daughters food came on a separate blue plate than ours. When visiting Chicagoland again, this will be the place to go.

    It's a pretty busy place, but for good reason. Huge gf menu! They are very vigilant about preventing cross-contamination as well. I have gotten a wide variety of delicious items here (omelet, quinoa bowl, pancakes)!

    I loved the experience there. The menu had so many options. Since I have been able to get pancakes at other restaurants I thought I'd try the gluten free cinnamon roll. I order that off the gluten free menu with eggs whites bacon and fruit. Let's just say I was fine until I got home and sat down on the couch. I definitely was glutened because of my leaky gut I got sick and my stomach is on fire. I would say this was a severe case of contamination. It was yummy but obviously not worth the next couple days of bloats and grogginess that I have to look forward to.

    We have had gluten free breakfasts many times here. We had breakfast this past mother's day. We ordered gluten free pancakes for our celiac son. Once we got the pancakes, we this time decided to test his pancakes with their gluten free syrup with our ELISA gluten free test kit(our 13 year old never gets sick-just stops growing when eats gluten). The test early on seemed negative(takes 10-15 minutes to complete). My son who is also diabetic could not wait thinking it was OK ate his pancake. At the end of the test, unfortunately, a faint positive appeared disappointing all of us. We had a long talk with the manager(who is celiac herself !) about somewhere cross-contamination occurred. The gluten free batter is from Sweet Ali's gluten free bakery-not questioning that-we tested the gluten free cinnamon roll(also from Sweet Ali's) after taking it to go at home, and it came out negative.

    Not a bad place for breakfast, offering pancakes and various egg dishes. I enjoyed one of their skillets. They seem to be aware of the GF needs, but I always have a little concern when I see a disclaimer about cross contamination. It makes me feel like I'm rolling the dice. That being said...I enjoyed the meal and would recommend it to others who need GF.

    Everyone at Egg Harbor is well trained and attentive to us with Celiac as well as other allergens. This store is exceptional with a GF menu, great options, great process ( the plate is a unique color for allergens and has a GF sticker for all to see ) and the food is delicious. I've been back many times in the last 6 months and will continue. I do wish they would open another store in south Naperville. Build it and they WILL come. Well done Egg Harbor.

    We did not have high expectations walking up to a restaurant in a mall, but it was fantastic! Loved the GF cinnamon roll! Too bad I shared it. There were so many menu choices. The server told me that GF orders are cooked in a fresh clean pan to minimize cross-contamination. I am very sensitive and did not get sick.

    This is the first place I was able to eat pancakes after my diagnosis, and I am so glad they have GF options because I love going out to breakfast with my mom! The pancakes were fluffy and much bigger than I thought they would be (I guess I am used to GF foods having a high price for a tiny amount), but they were a bit bland. The GF cinnamon roll was delicious! This place always seems to have about a 30 minute wait on Saturday mornings so get there early.

    WOW! I was so happy eating here today. I was thrilled with the amount of choices on the gluten free menu. I had a hard time deciding what to get, which is something I don't get to deal with often! :) I finally decided on the gluten free cinnamon roll meal. I got a cinnamon roll, eggs, sausage, and toast and it was all absolutely delicious and I felt great afterwards! My food was plated on a gf only plate which is always good to know! Absolutely recommended!

    This is not truly a gluten free menu. I have eaten 5 different gluten free meals here and have gotten sick on every one of them. There is cross contamination so if you have celiac disease like I do this is not the place for us.

    Ask your server straightaway for the GF menu (yes, they have a dedicated menu, woo!). There are many options for GF diners and the food is excellent. The cinnamon roll breakfast is a MUST. They do state, right up front, a cross-contamination risk but, quite frankly, I think most restaurants run that risk (unless dedicated GF) but don't bother mentioning it.

    This place has a very good gluten-free bun for sandwiches and breakfast. They used to have awesome pancakes, but they switched brands to something that is awful...the pancakes are kind of beige when cooked. The cinnamon buns are not good either. The scrambles, egg dishes, etc. are all excellent, but the only gf specialty item there I can eat is the bun.

    The previous reviewers are right about the cinnamon bun breakfast! YUM-TASTIC! The potatoes are off the chain delicious as well! The staff understood a food allergy and I am excited to report zero reaction! HUZZAH! The only con with all these pros is that I wish the portions were larger. But then, I'm not sure they COULD serve me a portion large enough if I'm completely honest!

    My husband and I had breakfast here and it was delicious! He had a skillet, which probably would have been gf anyway, but they prepare it so as to be sure. I had a gf cinnamon roll which was delicious! There is a wise variety of breakfast foods (including pancakes) as well as lunch sandwiches. The menu is very nice and includes the prices so you don't need the full menu too. They people were very friendly and understood our needs. I am celiac and careful about what I eat and I was very happy with the food we got here!

    The gf menu says they don't guarantee no cross-contamination. I thought I was going to a bakery and instead walked in to a very busy cafe during Mother's Day brunch! The register staff were a little clueless but the kitchen staff were great. They let me place a to-go order and worked with me to make a substitution when they were out of a gf item I ordered. Don't try to order takeout for the road like I did - plan time for a sit down breakfast and enjoy the full spectrum of their varied gf menu!
