    Pretty good gluten free menu available. I had a breakfast that was 2 eggs, 2 bacon strips, and a cinnamon roll with cream cheese frosting..... That cinnamon roll was OUTSTANDING!!! It had been a long time. I was very happy with my meal, the service, everything was terrific. Egg Harbor Cafe, Elmhurst, IL 03/09/2015

    SO GREAT! They are VERY careful with the food and well-trained. The food is delicious! On a side note: I also have some issues with HFCS, but they have organic Heinz Ketchup on the tables! I COVERED my potatoes in ketchup! I was so excited!

    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!

    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.

    I am so glad I came here for breakfast while in town on business. They had a huge GF menu! I had a huge plate of skillet with toast and a cinnamon roll. It was the most "normal" breakfast I've had in years. I would recommend this place to anyone!

    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.

    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!

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!

    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.

    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!!

    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.
