I had a skillet and the cinnamon roll and both were really delicious and I don't think I had any reaction (i get bloated from other things than gluten so it's hard to tell sometimes). My only problem was that I asked the manager how the gluten free food was prepared and he said that they had a dedicated gluten free griddle for the pancakes, and so that would probably be my safest option. but then i spoke to the waiter who then asked the cooks and she informed me it wasn't a dedicated griddle, it was a dedicated place on the griddle and that she thought a skillet would be a safer option. Well that was confusing but it was very good and I feel good.

Celiac friendly and so delicious! They have a separate gluten free menu, and GF food comes out on different colored plates than the regular food. I always remind them to have the kitchen change gloves, use separate utensils, use clean pans, etc, and they always do such an amazing job! So many GF options!

Freshly squeezed orange juice is NOT (even though it says on the menu and I asked). I ordered the chicken sandwich and the chicken was extremely dry, bread was super crumbly and the worst thing is that fifteen minutes after eating it I was extremely sick.

They have a lot of GF items and a knowledgeable team, but the outdoor seating is always closed when I go. If you want outdoor dining go to Another Broken Egg Cafe down the street.

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...

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!

Good food, breakfast/lunch options. Most importantly, I did not get sick. Consistent Egg Harbor Cafe chain quality. Separate gluten free menu upon request with lots of options. I got the frittata, toast and orange blossom green tea which is served loose leaf. Everything was yummy! They have the Sweet Ali’s gf cinnamon rolls that everyone loves. I actually preferred the gf toast with jam though. I really liked their bread. Looking forward to going back and getting a sandwich or avo toast with that bread. I did not ask about food prep precautions as I was relying on the Egg Harbor chain’s gf reputation. That’s why I scored the Safety rating at only 3 hearts.

so delicious! I had the shakshouka, chicken sausage, and cinnamon roll - I couldn’t pick!

No reaction to anything, the cinnamon roll was DELICIOUS and gooey, and the sausage and shakshouka were both great as well.

Separate griddle and prep space with knowledgeable wait staff. I reccomend!!
