After months of checking out pics of their brioche french toast I decided to give it a try. While it was flavorful, the thickness of the bread really threw me off and it was difficult to eat more than half. The chilaquiles on the other...More

Let's Face it: We have hardly any choices for a good Breakfast in town. We have: Grits, Kimmies, Early Bird, Monkey Business and Rialto. While Rialto will always have a piece of my heart, Early Bird takes the win. The coffee is A+, the biggest...More

This little gem of a restaurant serves excellent, large portion breakfasts. Everything I tried was superior quality and very tasty ... egg dishes, hash-browns, breakfast meats, and breads were all great. Coffee was worth a 3rd and maybe be even a 4th cup!!! Get there...More

Taste is awesome. Benedict served with Smoked salmon with Spinach and the base come with kind of mushroom. Really healthy style. I like it so much. 雖然需要排隊、但非常值得。煙燻鮭魚班尼迪克。底部不是麵包而是大香菇、讓我整個很驚豔。值得一吃

First off, let me start with the rating was not because the food wasn't good, because the FOOD WAS GREAT! The staff, however, not so much. The hostess seemed overwhelmed and there was no communication, we did online check in and were told we would...More
