Bites Nearby: Fat Headz Diner

Each week Patch picks a local restaurant worth checking out.

How about some breakfast?

, a new restaurant in Stone Mountain Village, serves up pancakes, eggs, bacon, sausage and other typical morning fare - but on a whole new level -- all day long. You can also get sandwiches, soups and salads.

I had the Yard Bird and Eggs ($7.65). The eggs were light in color and texture, and as far I could tell, were very flavorful without the need for much seasoning. It came with a generous chicken sausage link (or you can get it with turkey bacon). My oldest had the sweet potato pancakes with pecans, cinnamon and brown sugar butter ($8.79), my son had the Egg-Celent Omelette ($8.25), and my little one had The Flap Jack from the "Lil Fat Headz" menu. We all shared an extra side of bacon.

I had a sample of all but my son's meal, because he inhaled it before I could try it. I took that as a good sign. Everything else I tried was delicious, but my favorite had to be the sweet potato pancakes. The topping was a lovely, crunchy complement to the fluffy, flavor-packed pancakes.

We also had grits. I've only had grits of that texture one other time; they were stone ground from a vendor at the Yellow Daisy Festival. The ones at Fat Headz were just as yummy and since my trip to the restaurant last week, I haven't even bothered ordering the grits you find at some eateries.

In addition to the good food, our waitress, Amanda, was very attentive and friendly.

The restaurant is in the former Mama Mia's location, which was most recently  The Crab Pot: 961 Main Street in the city of Stone Mountain. It is open from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. The phone number is (678) 691-9168.
