History

Since the first Egg Harbor Café opened in Hinsdale on December 28, 1985, a growing base of wonderful customers have encouraged us to develop and expand. After 31 years, Egg Harbor Café is comprised of 16 restaurants in the greater Chicago area, as well as four Atlanta-area Egg Harbor Cafe locations (Johns Creek, Sandy Springs, Buckhead and East Cobb).

Key to Egg Harbor’s growth has been the central belief that people – our customers and employees – are the company’s most valuable resource. This core principle consistently guides the development of great management teams and service standards that create Egg Harbor Café’s hallmark breakfast and lunch experience. Customer loyalty is the cherished result of our focus on excellent relationships. In addition, employee turnover is low at Egg Harbor – numerous employees have been with us for over a decade, providing the team excellence that boosts quality and service at all 19 Egg Harbor Café locations.

Egg Harbor Café’s friendly and attentive service adds to the warm, casual ambiance that consistently welcomes guests, whether first-time visitors or long-time friends. Egg Harbor Café is well known for its country-style décor that features chickens, eggs and country artwork collected with love and care. The relaxed, inviting atmosphere attracts a broad range of guests – business men and women, families with young children, groups of teens, book clubs, bridal showers, friends, neighbors and more – all types of people and groups have become loyal, valued Egg Harbor Café customers.

And of course guests return again and again for the consistently fresh, high quality and beautifully presented food that is an Egg Harbor Café mainstay. Whether in the mood for a traditional breakfast, a variation on the original, or a unique Egg Harbor Café creation, our guests have an extensive selection of breakfast and lunch creations, and something is always sure to please. In addition, the kids menu offers a variety of child-friendly choices along with games and a coloring contest for our younger guests.
