Went here with my family back in the spring to start off a fun day of activities. The six of us ordered a variety of food, from Mexican to Omelettes. We all really enjoyed the food and thought the Mexican options were great! We had good service and enjoyed the view of town from our booth. Great start to the... More

Came here for breakfast before hopping on S manitou ferry. It took much longer than expected for breakfast to come out to the table, but the serving sizes didn't disappoint. Its a good, basic breakfast spot.

Nice place for breakfast , but hostess needs a little refresher. Food was good and price was good. Very busy and pretty slow. The rain outside overwhelmed them.

Stopped on a Sunday morning and enjoyed breakfast at the Early Bird. Service was fast, facility was clean, and the menu was extensive. Coffee was great, and they leave a pot at your table. Food was hot and tasty, and didn't take long to arrive. Perfect breakfast

Went there for lunch on a week. They have very young people working there that was more attentive among themselves than the patrons. Once seated and ordered never to be seen again unless you call out to them. The food was pretty horrid...looked like they promoted their mexican menu but the taste was definitely not even close. My kids ordered... More

I wasn't really impressed with the Early Bird. I figured it would be excellent like the Bluebird however the breakfast we had was not that great.
