Some GF Items

Having to eat GF, I was pleasantly surprised at what I could have. I chose the chicken salad on a avocado half, and fruit salad. The plate was full of all kinds of fruit. I recommend Eggheadz for anyone.

This place is only open at breakfast and lunch and is consistantly busy. Breakfast is served all day but a nice selection of sandwiches and salads are also available. The servings are large and omelets just great. Fresh squeezed orange juice. Yum.

This breakfast place is the bomb.com! My family goes her almost every weekend and are considered regulars! There's not one item on the menu that I didn't enjoy!

The homemade soups are fabulous. We have never had a bad bowl. The mushroom with wild rice is some of the best we have ever had. To go with a bowl of any of their soups try a Reuben, one of the best on the southwest side. Their breakfasts with fresh juice are also superb.

They offer a huge selection of foods! It takes a bit to get thru the menu but once you make up your mind, you won't be disappointed. It's a bit pricey though, but for the amount of food that you get, in my opinion, it's worth it!
