    Best Gluten Free breakfast I have had since being diagnosed Celiac. Server was very knowledgeable, and the pancakes were as good as the real deal. They had an 8.5x11 menu covered front and back with options. Very impressed.

    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.

    This is my favorite location in the chain to eat at. The staff is fast, efficient, and friendly, and they know their stuff! A couple of the servers are gluten intolerant and know what to look out for. Great location that serves Sweet Ali's products.

    Fantastic GF options for my 10 yr old boy. There is also usually a small " specials" menu in addition to their regular gluten free menu. That's where we found a GF French toast with eggs special. Staff is aware of GF needs. We feel very good about dining here.

    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!

    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.

    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.
