Unfortunately Egg Harbor can not be trusted. As a family that has 3 celiacs, this restaurant has been a wonderful spot for us to eat without worry of getting sick. They have a gluten free menu and have always been so kind, understanding and careful. Today, we ordered the gluten free pancakes and the lady that brought them out stated that they were gluten free. After a closer inspection, we noticed they neither smelled or looked like the pancakes we usually get. We flagged our waiter down and questioned it, and he assured us they were GF. After my mom took a bite, it was clear they had gluten. Instead of apologizing and admitting the huge mistake, he apologized and started covering himself and almost acting as though we were wrong. The manager said yes there was a mistake and they were in fact regular pancakes. My mom is already feeling the effects and told him she would be very sick because of this mistake. The manager apologized and then handed us the check AND CHARGED US FOR THE PANCAKES! I am in disbelief and SUPER disappointed that we will no longer be able to eat there.
Exceptional service, large selection of gluten free items on menu. Pancakes can be dairy free but none of the pancakes or cinnamon rolls could be egg free. I tried the gf pancakes, thick cut bacon, and applesauce and it was phenomenal! Highly recommend if you are anywhere near Atlanta! Very attentive and patient with questions.
Super quick service, knowledgable of GF menu and how food is prepared. Good experience!
I have celiac I have been there several times and I never got sick.
every time I go I love it. it sucks cause its so far from me. ... I actually never get sick here! love their gf cinnamon roll. makes me feel like I'm eating a regular cinnamon roll!
This is my favorite place to eat!! I've eaten there at last 20x and have never had any cross-cont issues. Nice GF selection.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Good food and many options but nothing that knocks your socks off. I do recommend eating 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!
They have the best gluten free cinnamon roll I have ever tasted!!! They have a great breakfast menu and always have pleasant service.
Absolutely amazing. Service is great and there are many items to chose from. Plan to wait awhile on weekends but so worth it!
They have a pretty good size gf menu but my food was bland and very expensive. Save your money and make your own breakfast. Won't be back. Gave 2 stars bc staff was very friendly.
They have a separate gf menu, with several yummy choices, we have gone twice, at both locations and had great experiences both times!
OMG I had lunch there yesterday. Ordered the GF pancake combo and a cinnamon roll, too. The cinnamon roll was divine. I wanted a whole tray!!!!! Pancakes were great, too!!Potatoes were just average, but the eggs were good with pepper jack cheese.
Gf pancakes were awesome!
Make a special effort to come here for breakfast food. GF Pancakes, cinnamon rolls, Potatoes, egg dishes galore- they have it all. The excellent coffee and green tea are great compliments to an already awesome meal. We had a group of 9 and service was outstanding. Food came quick and everyone was served a HOT meal. My only regret was not taking pictures of everything we ate. The photos alone could convince any GF CRITIC that good GF food is a reality. 5 stars!
Very large GF menu with great options. Even though I informed the server that I required GF and I watched her write that on the order, my selection was brought to the table by a different person and had a non-GF muffin on the plate. They apologized and corrected quickly. I have learned the hard way that I always have to be observant of every detail. Other than that slip up, the food was excellent. Will definitely return.
I am celiac and I eat at more than one of their locations often. They make me GF, DF pancakes, French toast and many other things that are great. I highly recommend.
This place was great! We took a trip to Atlanta over the weekend for an expo. We decided on breakfast here because they had lots of gluten free options. I love the atmosphere. It's so down home-y. The staff are very nice and well mannered. The sweet tea comes out in a Mason jar :) I ordered the gluten free cinnamon roll with scrambled eggs, bacon, and cheese grits. The only disappointment was that the cinnamon roll was a little on the small side, BUT IT WAS AMAZING! The best cinnamon roll I've ever had, gluten free or not. It was so buttery and soft, and the icing was perfect. Cheese grits were good, eggs and bacon were average. They do very well at making sure everything is clear from cross contamination (the server said they literally wipe down everything and have dedicated pans for gluten free). All in all, I really enjoyed eating here. I wish there was one closer to home cause I'd eat there all the time. Definitely stop by if you're in the neighborhood! There's more than one location!
Cannot express how much I love this place!! The gluten free pancakes are delicious and the GF cinnamon roll??? Oh my gosh. So yummy. The staff is incredibly nice every time I come. I've now made this my breakfast stop on the days I don't work from home, so I'm here 2-3 times a week and I've been coming for about a month now. Haven't gotten sick once and I have zero complaints!
This is my mom's favorite gluten-free restaurant by far! She is highly gluten sensitive and has never had a reaction. Every time she comes to Atlanta she asks to go to Egg Harbor and sometimes I think she drives 2 hours just to eat here. They have a very large gluten free menu and their gf pancakes are delicious. Highly recommend!!
Biggest gluten free menu I have experienced so far! The cinnamon roll is a must! It is to die for! Our waitress was extremely friendly and trained on celiac. Can't wait to go back again!
My son, who has Celiac, loved the GF pancakes, eggs, and sausage breakfast. The staff was well educated about cross-contamination issues, and the restaurant has strong procedures in place to keep GF foods separate -- they even serve GF food on nice red plates. We'll definitely return!!
Excellent food, tremendous menu options. Very friendly staff!!!! Justin was our waiter and super!!!! Now for breakfast, the g.f. cinnamon roll is a must and deserves a moment of silence to enjoy all its yumminess. Everything, eggs, harbor potatoes, cherry bacon, delicious.
Oh my goodness! I absolutely loved this sweet breakfast spot! They understood the difference between Celiac and Gluten. They have the BEST cinnamon rolls and amazing GF pancakes! Definitely recommended coming here! Also, props to Shea and Amanda for being so helpful!
Very good selection on the gluten free menu. I was excited to try the cinnamon roll since that isn't something I see as GF very often and I haven't been able to make them for myself. Unfortunately I was disappointed by the cinn roll - the flavor was decent but it was actually bits of GF dough put together more like pull-apart bread, not a roll at all. It was covered with sweet frosting so of course I ate it, but still wishing to have a traditional cinnamon roll again someday.
We LOVE Egg Harbor Cafe. The food is amazingly good HOWEVER on our most recent visit we noticed the menu says while they strive to serve GF food it its customers, they can not guarantee there will not be cross contamination. For those with Celiacs, this is a major bummer. They will do their best---no question but for those who can't afford to take a chance...buyer beware.
Dedicated menu, served on different color plates. Good stuff. Update: I've had stomach pain all day which I think is one of my symptoms. I can not be certain I got glutened but will definitely order something more simple next time to limit possible cross contamination. Changed to 3 stars because I can't be sure.
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.
