    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    This is the first place I was able to eat pancakes after my diagnosis, and I am so glad they have GF options because I love going out to breakfast with my mom! The pancakes were fluffy and much bigger than I thought they would be (I guess I am used to GF foods having a high price for a tiny amount), but they were a bit bland. The GF cinnamon roll was delicious! This place always seems to have about a 30 minute wait on Saturday mornings so get there early.

    This place has a very good gluten-free bun for sandwiches and breakfast. They used to have awesome pancakes, but they switched brands to something that is awful...the pancakes are kind of beige when cooked. The cinnamon buns are not good either. The scrambles, egg dishes, etc. are all excellent, but the only gf specialty item there I can eat is the bun.

    The gf menu says they don't guarantee no cross-contamination. I thought I was going to a bakery and instead walked in to a very busy cafe during Mother's Day brunch! The register staff were a little clueless but the kitchen staff were great. They let me place a to-go order and worked with me to make a substitution when they were out of a gf item I ordered. Don't try to order takeout for the road like I did - plan time for a sit down breakfast and enjoy the full spectrum of their varied gf menu!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Many Gluten Free options. Traditional breakfast entrees, and also items that are hard to find GF like cinnamon rolls and pancakes. Bottomless coffee pitcher on your table and even a complimentary To Go cup. 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.

    I was so excited when I read about this place online. The staff was extremely knowledgeable about celiac. They have an entirely separate menu and it is HUGE! It appears that they put their gluten free menu items on red plates and the other food on white plates. I ordered the GF cinnamon roll breakfast with chicken sausage and a side of GF mini pancakes. Don’t be fooled, the mini pancakes are basically normal sized pancakes and you get two when you order it as a side. The food came out very quickly. The cinnamon roll is to die for! And the pancakes are amazing, very fluffy. Honestly I have never had such great breakfast food and have a menu have so many options since being diagnosed with celiac six years ago! And it’s right next to Sally’s gluten free bakery so we got some chocolate chip cookies to take home!

    I usually don't write reviews, I hope this will be helpful. My family is Gluten Free, my wife is Celiac. We got there early at 7am, not busy. For last day of school celebration as a family. We asked for gluten free menus, told the server we were all gluten free. My wife and daughter ordered 1st followed by me. As coincidence my wife and I ordered the same thing. Upon my order said GF meal name and wife said your getting the same thing, I agreed. Upon arrival my wife and daughters order were correct and mine was wrong. They gave me a random gluten meal, which I promptly sent back. 10 minutes later they came back with the right meal but missing a side. Since we had to be at the sitter at 8 had no time to wait another 10 minutes for a side. Upon checkout, the cashier asked of everything was OK and I said no. There was no Interest in remedies for my unhappiness. Only in a hurry to get me out. I am glad it was me who got sick and not my wife. She can be wiped out for days. I had to hurry to the bathroom. To get sick at a not busy place, Celiac BEWARE! Go somewhere better like Butterfields.

    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.

    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 :)

    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.

    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.
