Egg Harbor Café restaurants are actively involved in our communities. Each Egg Harbor Café is committed to our mission to “improve service in every sense” in the wider community by hosting events, contributing time and donating gift certificates to local schools, park districts, religious institutions and nonprofit organizations.

Just as Egg Harbor Café’s encouraging, rewarding environment fosters a sense of extended family for many Egg Harbor Cafe employees, our community involvement positively impacts the families, friends and neighbors around us. Our team members are dedicated to serving local charities and causes and making a positive difference in the world.
