I love eating breakfast at Egg Haven! They have great breakfast and their soups are delicious. Everytime I go there I eat their southwest chicken skillet. It is great!!

As a resident of De Kalb, I have dined at Egg Haven a few times and have been aware of its success and popularity since it opened. It's almost impossible to be seated on a weekend without a long wait, so my fiance and I decided to go on a quiet Monday morning. We waited at our table without being acknowledged for quite awhile, and we finally gave our orders to a waitress that seemed bothered by us.

As we were leaving, my fiance told me that we didn't get served right away because the waiters were arguing over who would serve us. Apparently, somebody's shift was up soon or something, and no one wanted to deal with our table. I understand that these things happen, but it's best to carry on such an argument somewhere away from the customers. The food was decent, but it isn't worth the wait or the less-than-friendly atmosphere.

If you're looking for a delicious, inexpensive breakfast in this area and a warm, welcoming waitstaff, I recommend Lincoln Inn.

I have been a client of Egg Haven ever since it opened, and have been impressed since the get go. The line out the door on Saturdays and Sundays speaks for itself. The food is absolutely incredible, the menu is extensive, and the service is great as well. Serving sizes tend to be on the larger side. You definitely get a lot of bang for your buck. This is by far the best breaskast establishment in the area. The only down fall to this restaurant is that it can be less than intimate on Saturdays and Sundays when it is so... very busy. While the staff is great at claering tables and getting guests sat quickly despite long lines, the noise factor with that many people in one place can be slightly bothersome. My advice--either beat the rush (get there before 9), or go after 1om.

The waitress assured me that they use real eggs, but anyone could tell that the greasy yellow things that arrived on my plate were egg beaters. Egg beaters as a substitute for real scrambled eggs in a resturant called Egg Haven? It always too crowded, and not worth it. Don't bother, there are less crowded family resturants in downtown dekalb.

I did have one good experience where I was confused when I ordered and recieved french toast instead of pankcakes, and they gave me an extra plate of pancakes for free. But the fake eggs were just digusting and horribly disappointing, especially after the waitress lied.

the food was ok. My wife had coffee spilled down her back on accident from a waitress standing behind her at a poorly setup coffee station. The waitress was sincerly sorry but the manager wanted to look down my wife's shirt for any burns. Can you believe that? We were charged for the entire meal and he said he would rearrange the coffee station so it would not happen to anybody else. BAD MANAGEMENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Only open for breakfast, but they do it right! You pay a reasonable amount of money for a large amount of delicious food. It is a great little cafe with a good atmosphere. They have a lot of fresh juices that are really good, and their pancakes are absolutely awesome. I have to keep going back so I can try everything on the menu.

Somebody recommended Egg Haven and I'm thinkin - what kind of menu would a place named Egg Haven have? As it happens, a great one. Great service too!

PROS: Clean. Comfortable. Generous portions.
CONS: Why not 5 stars? Come on - WORLD class? It's not the Ritz Carlton.

If you are looking for a great breakfast with amazing fresh squeezed orange juice you have found your place. While they are only open for breakfast, they make sure you don't leave upset. The food is great, as I stated earlier the fresh orange juice is amazing and even if there is a line, just wait. They keep the tables turning quickly and it is worth the wait.
