Karen Bellian, one of the owners of the restaurant, said a few celebrities have stopped in during the last 10-years she and her husband, Andy, have owned StowNut, but none of them fit in as comfortably as Millegan.
"He's a really nice guy, we really enjoyed having him in ... some stars can just be kind of stuffy," she said. "He's a regular guy, you could have mistaken him for just another Stow resident."
Some of the other patrons in the diner that morning stared at Eric a little.
"With our place, everyone knows each other," Karen said. "A few people looked confused like they were asking, 'Wait, have I met him before?'"
Karen said one of her sons Joe, 20, works at Laziza in Kent where Eric was having dinner the night before.
He told the Bellian family that his partner is a Kent Roosevelt alumni and they were in town visiting family and attending an alumni function.
"So, we just told him to stop in for breakfast when we met him at dinner and he did!" Karen said.
The Bellian family is a fan of the show and said they instantly recognized him as the television star.
While at the diner for breakfast, the family snapped a few photos with the celebrity and got his autograph.
They chatted a little about the show and about the fact that he is on Broadway in New York City now.
Which, for all of you Bones fans out there, is the reason his character was put in jail on the show, so he could perform on Broadway.
Karen's other son, 22-year-old Mike, waited on Eric yesterday morning.
"He was a really nice guy," he said. "Very polite and we picked up his breakfast for him."
