We have eaten here several times. If you get up and are out when the doors open it is great, but often time will be spent waiting to be seated as it is small. Food is awesome! Staff are great, but waiting for over an hour to eat can be a deterrent.

We used to go to Egghead years ago whenever we were in the area. So I was looking forward to returning on our vacation road trip. Totally disappointing. Expensive for an unremarkable breakfast. Got a better breakfast a few days ago at a roadside luncheonette in Orick for about half the money. Plus, 15 minutes after leaving Egghead, I got... More

Get there early because there is always a wait! Mmmmm... Eggheads. WHile your waiting go into the fun used bookstore next door. I bought a 12th... More

Had pumpkin waffle with real maple syrup. Good food for such a small place. Didn't wait long on a Tuesday am but every table was full. All the customers raved when their food was delivered. Can't wait to come back and have more

Can't not come here when you're in Fort Bragg. This charming little place has the best breakfast ever! Expect to wait in line, though, because they are busy. Had lunch for the first time and it was great. Really delicious Greek salad. Hubs had a sandwich that he enjoyed. Lots of choices here with vegetarian options and gluten free, too.... More

So good! So unique! Boyfriend ordered the Benedict with a tequila lime cilantro hollandaise sauce. Omg so good. I got Dorothy's Revenge with a champagne hollandaise sauce and crab and a local smoked Canadian bacon from Roundhouse smokehouse (that's a whole other five star review). I ate it so slow so I could savor all the awesome flavors. The service... More

Yes, there was a line out the door with pagers provided, BUT with only 2 of us, we were in FAST. Wizzard of OZ stuff didn't overwhelm or dominate us. It was just there. Hubby had b-fast of pumpkin pancakes (w/bananas and a wonderful almond whipcream on top) and a Side of excellent bacon. I had a Rueben with a... More

Worth the wait. (Visit shops along the street if there is a wait. You will be given a beeper that allows you to wander the block). Delicious breakfast and cozy atmosphere. Small place with friendly, efficient staff. Follow the "Yellow Brick Road" to a memorable dining experience.
