When you run a business that purchases international hospitality and food retail companies, you notice great service when you see it. As the director general of a company that does just that, Village of Barrington resident, Anthony Oliver says his daily destination for a cappuccino and occasional breakfast is Egg Harbor Café.
“I’ve been to many restaurants around the world and what’s really special about this place is its consistent positive energy and the vibe from all the people who work here,” Anthony says. “Anybody can build a restaurant. Anybody can hire a chef to flip a few eggs. Egg Harbor Café is getting this many young professionals to show up here every morning and serve with a nice, cheerful demeanor. That does not happen by accident. It comes from upper management and then trickles down from the top.”
Anthony calls himself a “creature of routine”, ordering a simple poached egg on toast or a waffle when he comes for breakfast. “The food is always great and, if something’s not right, they fix it. To me, consistency is very important and so is a serene, clean and welcoming environment. Being at Egg Harbor Café is just a nice way to start the day.”
In fact, Anthony says that service with a smile might be the secret ingredient that makes his morning cappuccino taste so much better. “It’s the best cappuccino in town, perhaps the country and maybe even the universe,” Anthony says with a wink. “The product is better, but I believe the taste improves dramatically when it’s served with a positive attitude.”
