They have really gone downhill precaution wide. The last few times I have been there or ordered carry out they have mixed up the order and added gluten items to the order (bringing wheat English muffins or toast to table, and adding them to take out order! Very dangerous for celiac!

No longer safe for celiacs! This used to be my go to place when visitng the Northshore. I have eaten there (celiac)many times. They have become careless. When I complained about being exposed to gluten errors (Wheat English muffin brought to table and placed in 2 carry out orders off the GF menu and regular pancakes brought to table) the young managers on duty were very defensive and took no responsibility. Extremely disappointing. Too dangerous to go back for celiac!! Beware!!

Not a GF facility, but my understanding is that they take precautions. The staff was diligent about keeping the two GF plates in our group separate and safe.

Amazing! There were so many options on there that I haven't seen on a restaurant menu since going GF 2 years ago. It was hard to choose one! Gluten free cinnamon rolls/pastries are brought in from a nearby dedicated GF bakery.

Staff was conscientious and answered my questions. They brought out the GF plates (2 for our group) separately.

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.

We always go here for brunch and I've never had an issue. They are very knowledgeable and they toast the bread in a separate toaster. Their options are varied and they have a fast service.

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.

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 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.

I love all egg harbor cafes. I will say the ones in Chicago area are a bit better tasting (especially the cinnamon buns), but this one was great overall! The server understood our needs and I did not feel sick afterwards. The best breakfast place to go if you are GF in my opinion!

Very good selection of gluten free items. Waitress was very reassuring that she will notify their cook of my allergen so to not cross contamination. The Cinnamon Roll breakfast is a must! It’s been 2 years since I could truly enjoy one :)

Fabulous! My wife is celiac, and she loves the food. Two visits here, and no reaction! Staff is very celiac aware. I, however, I am not celiac and I can eat all the gluten I want.! That said, I ordered my breakfast gluten-free just to ensure that my wife would not have any cross-contamination problems. Even for a “regular eater” the taste of their pancakes, potatoes, bacon, and cinnamon roll are absolutely fabulous
