Lake Geneva: Egg Harbor Cafe and Yogeeze

Craig turned 33 on Friday, so we headed to Lake Geneva today to celebrate. We started with lunch at Egg Harbor Cafe on Main Street.

The reason Craig chose this (over Simple Cafe, where I wanted to go, but alas it wasn't my birthday celebration) place was their large menu. I actually had trouble choosing what to order because everything sounded so good.

The interior was homey and cute.

Craig got the Malibu Chicken sandwich and thought it was really good.

I decided to go with the Egg Salad melt, which came with a side salad and potatoes.

We don't make it Lake Geneva that often, but we would definitely go back to the Egg Harbor Cafe again!

Next, we just wandered along the lake for a bit. It was hotter out than we expected, so we didn't last long in the sun.

Craig is fascinated with Chicago-based prohibition era gangsters who often came to heavily wooded Wisconsin to hide out from the FBI. Famous gangsters such as Al Capone, John Dillinger, Baby Face Nelson and Bugs Moran all stayed at the French Country Inn on Lake Como, so we drove to see the hotel today.

Lake Como was really pretty.

Bugs Moran stayed here, at the Watersedge resort, just down the road from the French Country Inn.

Although neither of us was hungry, we stopped by the frozen yogurt place in downtown Lake Geneva on our way home. The texture and flavor reminded me of YoMama's frozen yogurt, so I was impressed by Yogeeze! I am quite picky about my frozen yogurt and often find other places disappointing.

It's always great to take day trips to get a change of scenery and check out new restaurants and places! 


  1. I avoid egg salad but your sandwich looks tasty!
    Happy Birthday to Craig.

  2. Looks fun! We are finally getting back to Lake Geneva this coming weekend. I want to do that mail boat tour.

  3. Looks like a fun day in Lake Geneva and a great way to celebrate a birthday!

  4. Everything is lovely! I have never been to Lake Geneva, something I clearly must remedy (but not this insane summer probably...)!

  5. Looks like such a fun day!! Lake Geneva is such a neat place to visit.

  6. If you're going back to Egg Harbor, go for breakfast the next time. They're a chain in the Chicago suburbs and we lived near one in Lombard, our favorite breakfast place EVAR!
