I am celiac and I eat at more than one of their locations often. They use to have gf, df pancakes and French toast but now all have dairy. They said corporate won't allow special items made.
Very knowledgeable about Celiac. Great breakfasts.
GF cinnamon rolls are amazing!!
Huge variety on their menu. Their GF menu had so many options. Even the kids menu had GF options already included on it. Loves the GF pancakes.
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!
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!
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!
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!
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.
SO DELICIOUS and exciting to have a full breakfast that is safe and filling. Perfect cinnamon rolls, bacon, eggs, and potatoes. My husband enjoyed a skillet and cheese grits. We are both highly sensitive, and neither of us had any reaction!!!!!
love the gf pancakes.
Love this place!! So many great options it's hard to chose. Staff was great also. They are helpful and understand and friendly. Which is a blessing when it comes to eating out.
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!
Delicious GF menu and options!! I got the GF cinnamon bun breakfast, it was fantastic and the breakfast potatoes were safe :) they offer gf pancakes but can't speak for them.
I thought the cinnamon roll was delicious. Also appreciated the ability to sub for no extra charge (egg whites, turkey sausage, fruit instead of potatoes). Lots of options available!
Awesome place GF/DF options. Very friendly staff
This place is incredible! Best GF cinnamon roll I've had in my entire life!
I had a great salad here today. I was in a hurry, and the staff accommodated me perfectly. The combinations of flavors in the GF Harvest Salad was amazing, and the presentation was lovely. I will be back soon to try some of the breakfast items.
Horrible, thrown together gluten free items! Save your money and you time and skip this place!
Excellent food good variety, they do warn you on the menu that they may cross contaminate so beware. Staff is very friendly
Awesome! Loved everything in the menu, and my din lived the gluten free pancakes!
Awesome! Had the cheesy grits and eggs - so good! Lots of other GF items on the menu, too. Sandwiches and salads, and oh! GF pancakes! Going back for Benedict on hash browns.
hmm I was excited about the possibility of pancakes, but disappointed in the reality. IDK about the rest of the menu although there were some tasty sounding skillets & omelets.
Many Gluten Free options. Your GF selection arrives on a unique color plate so there is no confusion by kitchen or server. Top quality food, prepared carefully, provides a thoroughly enjoyable and Celiac safe dining experience. I have eaten here often without any reaction. On weekends it can be extremely crowded (it is right on the Naperville River Walk) with rather long waits, but definitely worth any inconvenience.
They have never gotten me or my girlfriend sick so I can confidently say their kitchen practices are very safe and thorough for Celiac people. and their customer service is great as well. On one occasion we thought they had given us regular gluten pancakes because they were very fluffy and looked too good to be true. The manager got us a double order of gluten free pancakes complementary and asked us to bring back our original order so he could show his kitchen staff upon arrival. He explained to us that our pancakes were in fact, gluten free. He still gave us the double order and we apologized for the inconvenience. But I have nothing but good things to say about this place :)
This place is definitely celiac friendly. They have a separate prep area, a gluten free menu, and the servers are very knowledgeable. All gluten free orders come on colored plates, whereas non gluten free food comes out on white plates. While in the area for business, I ate breakfast here 3 times successfully.
Was very disappointed to find out AFTER they served us our pancakes that they don't make dairy free GF pancakes anymore. We made it very clear to the server that a member of our party has a dairy allergy in addition to celiac. Again, very disappointing - not just because they don't offer dairy and gluten free pancakes, but more so that their standards for the care of customers with allergies has turned negligent. This used be a safe place to eat - not any longer.
I had the bacavado omelette and a GF cinnamon roll. While I thought $5 was a bit much for the small roll, it was delicious and something you don't find very often. There were plenty of GF breakfast and lunch options. Remember, they are only open till 2 pm.
Their GF cinnamon rolls are on the dry side and are made in muffin tins, but get the job done and satisfy my cinnamon roll cravings. I was a Cinnabon junkie for years, so I know a good cinnamon roll. Still haven't found one that's up to par, but these are pretty dang good for the time being. Their omelettes and pancakes are also amazing. They have a full GF menu. Definitely one of my favorite breakfast spots.
Short hair (pubic) hiding between my pancakes, syrup is fake with preservtives, eggs were so raw in middle the whites ran, people didn't know much about gluten, and their cinnamon rolls taste like freezer and were dry. I left without paying, disgusted.
It was decent. Very similar to Another Broken Egg. We had the cinnamon buns and were underwhelmed by them. I ordered an omelet and they brought it out with an English muffin on top of the eggs and potatoes. Since we all ordered from the gluten free menu it was a surprise. Had to ask for it to be remade- bummer! Not bad, just not super special.
We love Egg Harbor. Just recently we went to this one. The food as well as the service was exceptional. I love that they give me my own pitcher of water and my own coffee pot. They have a real gluten free menu too, not just a salad page. Highly recommended!
This breakfast place is legit! The GF cinnamon rolls are To. Die. For! I also had grits and a spicy jalapeño omelette. Worth every bite! Portions are generous, service was good even for a busy Sunday, and good phenomenal! There are tons of GF options. No reactions either.
I have come here before being diagnosed having an allergy to Gluten and the food was great. So I was nervous coming back. I didn't want just four or five things to choose from. Was not disappointed. They have a very charismatic and friendly staff that are knowledgeable about GF. Don't be fooled by the Gluten free pancake options on the regular menu. When you ask for the GF menu be prepared to have 20+ options available. Extremely impressed and I will be back.
My daughter (who has celiac) got glutened here - after ordering and verifying that her order was the gluten free pancakes. I called the restaurant after she got so sick and the manager told me that her plate should have been a different color, indicating that it was a gluten free meal, which all the wait staff should have known. Sadly, we don't feel like it is safe for her to eat here.
This place ALWAYS satisfys! Now that Ive switched to gluten free (and mostly dairy free) ive tried their GF Cinnamon Roll breakfast. OH. MY. GOD....sooo good! And very filling! GF pancakes are delicious aa well, but im sensitive to them due to the milk/butter. The service is always on point as well. :)
Ordered the gluten free pancakes. Quite good although will request a fruit topping or something on them next time. For those of you from the Chicago area, they use Sweet Ali's flour blend. The Gf menu in general is quite large for a breakfast place which is nice for a change. No reaction and love that they bring gf dishes out on red (instead of white) plates so there's no confusion.
Found another Egg Harbor Cafe in Rockford, Illinois...this place rocks. We were in town for a soccer tourney and was able to call ahead and place orders. Every GF order was perfect, no errors! Each came in their own separate container, utensils and all condiments in their own containers as well. A++ for the staff, service and food Make sure you check this place out!
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!
