Egg Harbor Cafe - Sandy Springs Altanta Georgia

You can find this location of Egg Harbor Café at 5920 Roswell Rd, Sandy Springs, GA 30328 in the shopping center between Clifton and Hammond, sort of on the backbone of Whole Foods. Nearby is the excellent Bishoku Sushi and Chef Rob's Caribbean Cafe and down a level towards the back is one of the few remaining Lefont Theaters. Parking gets filled early so if you're coming for lunch you may want to arrive a bit before noon.



As my dedicated readers know, I frequently travel with my friend Sid who is a vegetarian (well I guess technically an ovitarian as he eats eggs) so we'll hit the various breakfast place that looks interesting. I had heard good things about Egg Harbor Cafe and thought that this would be a good candidate for lunch. We arrived about 11:30 (I wake up very early so this is a late lunch for me) and arrived at Egg Harbor with an already full parking lot. 


Egg Harbor Cafe's facade looks a bit barnish (or perhaps Hen-House-ish? Or maybe more like a farm house?) but the exterior belies the expansive interior. The main part of the atrium has tall ceilings with walls festooned with farmhouse and chicken/egg motifs. We only waited a couple of minutes before being seated and greeted by our server. I ordered some very good coffee served in custom mugs and started looking over the menu.










When the server came by Sid ordered something basic (Scrambled Eggs, Potatoes and an English Muffin which he said was very good). I asked for some recommendations and went for a n Eggceptional Skillet Combo - "A smaller Eggceptional Skillet with your choice of two ingredients* and melted Jack and Cheddar cheeses, topped with one egg, any style. Served with a slice of Banana Bread French Toast and fresh fruit $9.99" My Sillet was the San Antonio Skillet "Some like it hot! Spicy chorizo sausage, diced bacon, fresh jalapeno, onion and vine-ripened tomato" covered by one egg, over-medium and of course I got the Banana Bread French Toast! I thought the food delicious and the French toast exceptional - I can basically eat this stuff all day.



Service was extremely good with my coffee cup kept full and hot. So add this to the Flying Biscuit, J. Christopher's  and IHOP, all within about a mile of each other, as great breakfast-all-day options. Man I love Sandy Springs!
