Some friends and I met here recently for breakfast on a Saturday morning and although it as very crowded, we did not have to wait that long. Our server was great and the food was absolutely perfect! There are a lot of choices and portions are plenty enough to take some home. We enjoyed the skillets and frattatas.

This was just like home (NC)! Southern comfort food at its finest. The menu is enormous and I was overwhelmed but everything looked amazing so I could not go wrong. My colleague had soup and salad (she's a regular). I had a veggie panini - oh My GOSH! Soooo good!! I wish I could eat here daily.

Home style café with all the breakfast things you could want! Fluffy pancakes, fresh fruit, omelettes however you like, specialty coffees, and on and on! Fast service, even when busy.

Yummy food, great service! Always busy. Very large selection of choices! Every dish I have ever ordered exceeds my expectations. Owner could be friendlier.

This was our first visit to the restaurant and we thought it was great. We are gluten free and they accommodated us well. The service was quick as was food arrival. We would definitely recommend Eggheadz to others!

I love this place. When I go out to eat, I like to try dishes I can't make at home. This place has so much to pick from. I can't believe how delicious everything is. It's my favorite place for breakfast, brunch and lunch. There is something for everyone here!

Getting inside; getting a seat is the first challenge. The menu is not that different. The food is average-as is portion size. The cost is on the high size based on what is available. It must be me as people keep flocking in and waiting for a table and then the food.

Mey parents and I went here after my college graduation and now anytime I'm back in town. It's delicious with endless options! Pictured is the pumpkin cheesecake waffle. It was more of a dessert but to die for.

Eggheads has excellent food- omlets, skillets, pancakes- large enough to have some left for the next morning for me! Lunch is great as well with a wide variety of sandwiches all served with the soup of the day.

Thank SP1012
