    The absolute best gluten waffles that I have ever eaten. The service is also amazing. We will be back tomorrow.

    Have eaten here a couple of times. The gf pancakes are awesome! All their food is very fresh. Treat yourself to some freshly squeezed oj, or juice. Enjoy!

    They have a GF menu and the pancakes were very good. The wait staff isn't very helpful but I've never gotten sick. Try the GF crepes with fresh strawberries.

    We had a great experience at Eggheadz! There were plenty of gf items from which to choose, service was fast, and food tasted great! We had omelets and skillets and shared the gf pancakes which tasted wonderful! We would definitely return to this restaurant.

    We stopped on our way back to Indiana from Chicago because it had a good rating. Worth the few miles out of the way! Just note that the GF menu only lists pancakes, but the skillets are naturally gf and they note allergy on your order ticket so the grill gets cleaned. The non celiacs in the group loved the extensive eclectic menu! Will definitely stop here again.

    My sister, husband and I are are all Gluten Intolerant. Eggheads Cafe is one of our absolute favorite places! The GF pancakes and crepes are delicious! It's great getting pancakes that actually have the light and fluffy texture of regular ones! We've not had a problem with their syrup either. Their staff and service are very quick and friendly too! There are plenty of options available for those who have gluten allergies and sensitivities!

    Great breakfast spot. All staff I have encountered are knowledgeable about allergies. Recently they have begun offering GF wraps for their sandwiches. Now I've got a new lunch spot. :)

    We have been going there several times a month since they opened and have never gotten sick! Their food is quick and delicious. We always ask them to put an allergy alert on the check & request that they clean the grill first, just to be safe. We love their GF crepes & pancakes (try the banana nut or fresh blueberry. Syrup has never been a problem for us) and have also never gotten sick with their hash browns and home made corned beef hash. Try the chicken salad in a tomato or avocado! Alas, no soup is safe, and no GF bread for toast or sandwiches. We love it here anyway!

    The crepes are excellent!! They have a very extensive gf menu on top of that, but honestly I always get the crepes.

    Stopped here while traveling. Was so pleased they had a fairly large gf menu for breakfast, including pancakes, waffles, crepes, omelets, etc. Pancakes were big and fluffy, but slightly gummy in the middle. Ordered the "American" breakfast with scrambled eggs and was given over-easy eggs. Not a big problem, though. Staff was friendly and helpful! Note: gf batter contains dairy and nuts (almonds).
