History

Since the first Egg Harbor Café opened in Hinsdale, IL in December 1985, a growing base of wonderful customers have encouraged us to develop and expand. After 33 years, Egg Harbor Café has 15 restaurants in the greater Chicago area, as well as five Atlanta-area locations (Johns Creek, Sandy Springs, Buckhead, East Cobb and Alpharetta). 

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 informal ambiance that consistently welcomes guests, whether first-time visitors or long-time friends. Egg Harbor Café is well known for its farmhouse-chic 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, 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.
