    Pretty good gluten free menu available. I had a breakfast that was 2 eggs, 2 bacon strips, and a cinnamon roll with cream cheese frosting..... That cinnamon roll was OUTSTANDING!!! It had been a long time. I was very happy with my meal, the service, everything was terrific. Egg Harbor Cafe, Elmhurst, IL 03/09/2015

    SO GREAT! They are VERY careful with the food and well-trained. The food is delicious! On a side note: I also have some issues with HFCS, but they have organic Heinz Ketchup on the tables! I COVERED my potatoes in ketchup! I was so excited!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Very large GF menu with great options. Even though I informed the server that I required GF and I watched her write that on the order, my selection was brought to the table by a different person and had a non-GF muffin on the plate. They apologized and corrected quickly. I have learned the hard way that I always have to be observant of every detail. Other than that slip up, the food was excellent. Will definitely return.
