Egg Harbor is the only place we feel completely safe eating! They are extremely good about keeping their GF food separate from the rest of the kitchen

One of our go-to places for good food and a good selection of gluten-free options. Very knowledgeable and even accommodating when possible. The GF Door County chicken salad is delicious as are their GF pancakes.

Excellent service and food. We took our new sailor here for Veteran's Day breakfast. They were very kind and several staff members thanked him for his service. Highly recommend. Plus, the gluten-free selection is pretty impressive. My grits were amazing!

This place was the most amazing gf restaurant find possibly in my entire 4 years post celiac diagnosis! The menu was extensive and actually a full quality print vs some paper flyer or just a couple notes on normal menu! I cannot wait to go back through ATL just so I can eat here again. I had pancakes with maple syrup and just yum! Also had first cinnamon roll I’ve had in years just wow! It appeared they served all GF meals on red plates and even had a separate person carry mine out to avoid any risk of cross contamination. I enjoyed a yummy mint green hot tea that was served with a bowl of real honey. Literally nothing bad to say about entire experience, service was great food was fantastic I felt like a regular patron for once and loved it

Egg Harbor is phenomenal. Great celiac friendly options. One of the largest gluten free menus I’ve seen for brunch, as it should be considering that several options for breakfast should naturally be gluten free. Solid customer service. You can’t go wrong here, especially with the amount of options. Their gluten free cinnamon roll is awesome and you can get toast here and it is done in a separate toaster. I appreciate that they know what celiac is and how to properly accommodate my needs.

Followed the advice of other users and got the GF Cinnamon Roll breakfast with fruit instead of eggs. They have a GF menu and use different colored plates to differentiate a GF meal. Very knowledgeable staff.

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.

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.

This place is great. I had the GF pecan banana pancakes (with grits and chicken sausage) and a ordered a cinnamon roll to go! Both were yummy. I have a gluten intolerance and I didn’t have any issues.

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.

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.
