The people that run this restaurant are very friendly and accommodating. The offerings are very good and there is something for everyone to enjoy. Nice spot for a lunch with friends. Great chicken and wild rice soup too.

While I've been to other Egg Harbor Cafés in our area, this one was very busy & loud. The tables are very close together but OK. Our server, originally Manny, then a shift change to Tyler was seamless. Both guys were very friendly & accommodating since we wanted to sit and chat. My small cup of chicken with rice soup... More

This place is wonderful! Not just the food, but the staff as well. The servers are attentive, friendly and considerate. The food they bring to your table is fresh, tasty and plentiful. I come here often and many of their other locations. I've never been disappointed!

We found out this was the 3rd Egg Harbor Cafe - created in 1985. They have such a good quality from place to place.

We have eaten herd dozens of times, but almost always for breakfast, as the omelets are great, the ingredients fresh, and the service excellent. Thus time, we stopped in for lunch. What a great assortment of well prepared sandwiches, all with the freshest of meats ad vegetables, and served on varied bread codices. The sandwiches are accompanied by the establishment's... More

Everything here is delightful. Good service and wonderful food. A great neighborhood meeting place. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 star is that I have a hard time hearing in there. The accoustics aren't very good and it's usually very loud.

Ate breakfast one Sunday morning while passing through the area. My son met there, and we had a fine breakfast. Very good food in a very busy cafe. It is very popular, and had a waiting list by 10 am. The coffee was very good too. I'm picky about my coffee.

We actually picked up this place because it had good reviews on TripAdvisor and went there on Saturday for breakfast. We were kind of lucky, because we got a table immediately and after we sat down the line started forming in front of the entrance and remained there until we left. Despite being very busy at the time, the staff... More

They remodeled and although it has a more open feeling, nothing was done to address the noise level. It can be a difficult place to hear others at your table even if you're a table of 4. If I am meeting with friends, I go elsewhere because you can't hear. They have increased their pricing at least twice in the... More
