Egg Harbor's menu packs a sumptuous punch of traditional and creative breakfast and lunch dishes for daytime noshing.

Thirty years of practice has given the chefs at Irish Rose Saloon a refined sensibility, which they use to craft accessible pub food that pairs flawlessly with the bar's selection of craft beer on tap. The chefs travel to Chicago markets each week to find the freshest seafood, meats, and produce. Once they've dreamed up inventive daily specials, the options are displayed on a chalkboard menu that hangs on the restaurant's exposed brick wall, featuring entrees like duck meatloaf, jamaican pork, and sustainable fish such as Lake Superior whitefish and shrimp that always bring fabric bags to the grocery store.

These specials join the regular favorites on the lunch and dinner menus, including housemade veggie burgers, linguine with housemade italian sausage, and chicken breast baked in a wood oven. Patrons can team their selections with dozens of draft beers, such as regular and seasonal suds from New Holland and Flying Dog breweries.

Handmade Amish blankets and local delicacies call to Tammy Herrara. On a trip to Wisconsin, she visited an Amish market and fell in love with the concept of selling natural goods in bulk to help keep community members healthy. With help from friends, she soon discovered a perfect location in her hometown to sell a slowly expanding inventory of gluten-free and homemade foods. Today, her market sells everything from Michigan blueberries and freshly ground peanut butter to Mystic Monk coffee—the proceeds of which go toward rebuilding the Carmelite monks’ rectory in Wyoming. Patrons can also stop in for a quick cappuccino and one of Tammy’s turtle brownies, or they can peruse handmade Amish wicker baskets from northern Wisconsin. With its wood laminate flooring, local radio tunes, and on-call phrenologist, Friend's Country Market harks back to neighborhood shops and general stores of yesteryear. A recipe board even sits on the store’s wall, inviting visitors to paste their favorite recipes for other customers to try at home.

Licensed chiropractor Dr. Nathan Stewart, of the eponymous Stewart Family Chiropractic, realigns corpuses and alleviates ailments including back pain, sleep trouble, and headaches. A 60-minute therapeutic massage kneads rigid muscles into lithe, limber appendage movers as stress beats a hasty retreat and tense tissues relax. During a chiropractic exam, the friendly physician runs a slew of tests to get a feel for which kinds of spine-refurbishing techniques would best get bodies into straighter shape or would help to relieve migraines, sciatica, or sleeping problems. If necessary, x-rays get a sneak peak into the spine's inner workings and assess skeletons for future careers as dancing skeletons.
