The staff was courteous and immediately alerted the manager to come to my table upon hearing of my allergies. The manager seemed frazzled and impatient. He gave me a gluten free menu which actually had a lot on it...the problem I had was that I’m also dairy free...I asked him what he thought and he straight up said “That’s going to be really hard to achieve, unless you just get a plate of meat” and that’s exactly what I ended up getting the plate is called “The traditional GF breakfast with Meat” on the GF menu.
I’ve come to this location for a number of years. I ordered an almond milk mocha and scrambler after alerting the server I have celiac. The server brought me a regular milk mocha and “almond milk on the side”???? And then told me they don’t make almond milk mochas. My food came with an English muffin and when I asked for it to be remade and gently alerted the server again that I was Celiac, the server brought the food to the kitchen, removed the English muffin and brought back the same plate. Horrible. Never returning to this location.
Finally went for the first time today and they did not disappoint! The staff is so super friendly and knowledgeable, and the gf menu is amazing!! Thought I was getting glutened because the gf pancakes were THAT GOOD! Gluten free pancakes that are as fluffy and delicious as regular ones!!! I cannot wait to go back and try more. Their gf cinnamon roll is next on my list...
Food was mediocre at best. Cinnamon rolls are hard, overpriced, and we didn’t finish it. Service was horrible. We did speak to the manager about it and let her know about our experience. We definitely feel it’s overrated and not worth it, but I suspect it gets rave reviews because they have an extensive gluten-free menu. I was not confident in the server in her understanding the seriousness of celiac (acted like I was annoying her and she knew it all), but ate because I was desperate. With that being said, I didn’t get sick, which is why I give them two stars instead of one.
Egg Harbor Cafe has locations all around the Chicagoland area. They have a large gluten free menu and prep food to avoid cross contamination. It is pretty tasty all-American food and great when you are looking to grab brunch.
Amazing GF menu and knowledgeable staff! All the reviews said the cinnamon roll and pancakes where the best. So I got both, I mean when else can you find gf items like this! The pancakes were ok, not great. The cinnamon roll was amazeballs!!!
Big gluten free selection! I had the gf cinnamon roll breakfast and it was so good! Eggs, chicken sausage, skillet potatoes, and a gf cinnamon roll-- the perfect breakfast!
They have a separate gluten-free, which they have now updated to include skillets with riced cauliflower instead of potatoes!! I had one with riced cauliflower, shredded brussels sprouts and fresh jalapeños — with two eggs on top, fresh fruit side, and gluten-free pancakes:)
Ok, so first of all I would DEFINITELY come back and this is one of the best options I have seen for someone looking for a decent GF AND DF breakfast! I really appreciated that there was oat milk for my coffee and I could have the potatoes (usually a no go) and the bacon! My (not allergic to anything) husband had a delicious hearty breakfast. There were, however, a couple of snafus. I ordered the grits after my server assured me they were DF, and although they caught the mistake in the kitchen, my husband’s food came and he ate breakfast as I waited for my replacement meal. Snafu #2-we were charged for all three meals and had to wait around for that to get straightened out. Also, I bought a mug that was chipped and had to exchange it. Everyone was super nice and friendly. Our waiter was genuinely upset at his mistake. Having said that, I’m in customer service and really surprised they didn’t comp the meal or at least the mug. We didn’t kick up a fuss though. Anyhow, options for a GF/DF breakfast are so slim I appreciate any restaurant that goes the extra mile to offer it.
Oh it was so extremely amazing, if i’m ever back in Georgia, this is where i’ll go as often as possible. They have so so many options, it makes you feel like any other regular person. The gluten free cinnamon roll and fresh toasted bread and pancakes and everything was amazing! I’ll for sure recommend it to everyone i ever meet
Best gf cinnamon rolls ever! I try to stop here everytime I travel through and stock up on the cinnamon rolls!
I’ve been eating here for two decades and find few breakfast places in the area that compare. I love their fresh-squeezed orange and strawberry juice, their skillets, sandwiches and specials. The gf bread for sandwiches is great as are their gf pancakes, although I usually play it safe and avoid starches since the egg options are plentiful. Staff have always been friendly and accommodating and meals are marked with allergy tags.
In town on vacation and stopped here before leaving town. I had gluten free pancakes, eggs, bacon, and cheese grits. Delicious! It was a wonderful brunch! Next time I'm in town, I will be coming back here.
Firstly, they have an interactive menu online where you can filter out allergens and see what is safe for you on the menu. Secondly, the staff were extremely helpful and accommodating. I am dairy free as well and the only milk alternative was oat milk, which I questioned if it would be gluten free. He willingly offered on his own to bring it to the table so I could see he carton. When I thanked him he said “of course, this is your health we’re talking about!” He also double checked there was no dairy in the potatoes. I’m extremely sensitive to gluten. I had the chicken chilaquiles and an oat milk latte and I had no reactions.
