Went to visit family in Ridgefield and we went out to catch a quick lunch. Dining room was clean and had a friendly atmosphere. You could see there were "regulars" there which were greeted by name. Food was very reasonable and there were enough choices on the menu for all. I had an egg salad sandwich which was very large... More

My family and I have tried the Early Bird Café several times over the past couple of years.

It's just your average diner, but a little nicer atmosphere and staff. I personally would have their omelets and bacon.

It's a small town feel cafe-diner place. Love that children love it. Lots of very young artist drawings hanging. Good prices and friendly. Home town feeling.

Been coming here for years. By far, the best diner in Ridgefield. Definitely a local spot, whether you are sitting at the counter or choose to sit at a booth. Love the Ham, Asparagus and Swiss omelette. Definitely must try!

I love diner food and the Early Bird certainly does it really well. They always have lots of specials, a homey atmosphere and good service. Breakfast lunch and dinner are served and everything I've had there was great.
