We were making a day of Saturday and decided to try The Early Bird as opposed to our usual spot. It was busy, but we only waited a minute or two and got to sit right away. Coffee was brought to our table right away...More

It's small, there may be a line, but it's worth the wait. Service is great and the food is served very quickly. The coffee cups are a generous size and mine was never empty. The prices are great and the portions are also a generous...More

We've become regulars. This is the place we compare other breakfast places to. Fresh, quality food -- terrific omelettes, thick bacon, juicy sausages, old fashion freshly squeeze orange juice-- great stuff!! Only complaint is that it's pretty crowded on Saturday and Sunday mornings.
