Always a hit at either location

Two locations (Kimball & Seth Child and just south of Blue Earth Plaza) with the same menu. The breakfast and lunch menus are extensive enough to please all. Our favorites include chicken pecan/avocado salad, breakfast enchiladas, and 'hold the yokes' (when we lean towards healthier offerings). No... read more

I only go to this place when under pressure to move about in this part of town. Last time in, in the morning but not busy, the waitress brought me water and never returned, so after 15 minutes I simply left. When I have been served, the food is OK (likely alot of frozen stuff) but nothing at all special...hey,... More

This place was fantastic to me, but it was a little different. The location looks to have been an office at one point in a strip mall... very open, sort of half-booths, very boisterous, certainly not meant for intimate dining. The quality of food was excellent, nothing like a greasy spoon at all... had several healthy choice options for the... More

This place has a great little menu with some unexpected twists. It will fill up quickly, but to-go orders are always fast!!

in the last week We went on a Sunday and the wait was ridiculous. This was to be expected on a Sunday, however they were understaffed and things looked like they were out of control. When we finally got seated, we ordered and after over a 30 minute wait for our food, our food came to us cold and old.... More

We were there for a meeting and had reservations. Good thing, the place was busy. It was also noisy so we had to work to here what everybody was saying around the table. Food was decent and the help very attentive. I will go back.

This place has the best Hamburger in Manhattan and possibly the best burger I have ever had. I really like the food at early edition.

If you like IHOP or Denny's then you will most certainly love Early Edition. You can tell they are not about pushing out as many orders as possible but take pride in the quality of their food. Their biscuits and gravy is one of the best I have had.

My family and I go there for breakfast from time to time and we love it. The food is definitely higher quality than the box chains and the price is great. Love the new location.

My family and I used to go to Early Edition for breakfast occasionally in the past. We were always satisfied with the breakfast that we were served. A couple of months ago I decided to go there by myself during the week. It was mid-morning and there were only a few people sitting at one of the tables. So it... More
