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 32 years, Egg Harbor Café is comprised of 15 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 principle guides the development of management teams and service standards to 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 attentive service adds to the warm, casual ambiance that welcomes guests, whether first-time visitors or long-time friends. Egg Harbor Café is known for décor that features chickens, eggs and country artwork collected with love and care. The relaxed atmosphere attracts a broad range of guests – business men and women, families with young children, groups of teens, book clubs, friends, neighbors and more – all types of people and groups have become valued Egg Harbor Café customers.

And of course guests return 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 that is sure to please. A special kids menu offers a variety of child-friendly choices along with games and a coloring contest for our younger guests.

Throughout Egg Harbor Café’s history, relationships, ambiance and quality food have been a recipe for success… and will always be the central ingredients in our commitment to you.
