Good local townie diner

Early Bird has a wider selection than most local diners. In addition to the usual eggs and bacon and omelets they have waffles, Huevos Rancheros, and some inventive Benedicts. I like their Benedict with roast beef and roasted red pepper. Early Bird also has sandwiches and American dinners... read more

I can't say enough good things about this place. I drive 45 minutes to get here and it's always worth the trip. The grilled reuben is unbelievably perfect. The corned beef is melt in your mouth good, the ratio of dressing and sauerkraut is perfect...this would be my death row meal, seriously that good! The service here is always great.... More

I have eaten at the "Bird" many times and the food and service is Great !! The home fries with breakfast are the best and the owner is known for his huge, home made Blueberrie Muffins (or other fruits in season too). Daily Specials are posted each day and can be counted on to be a good value and tasty.... More

Stopped at this breakfast café based on trip advisor reviews. We got seated promptly and were provided menus from the hostess. After a few minutes, and no one came --- even to ask if we wanted coffee/tea, my friend suggested sitting at the "breakfast bar". I decided not to, as I felt we were fine where seated. However, after about... More

Stopped here recently for breakfast. It was quite crowded so we sat at their counter - service there was excellent. We had their pancakes - blueberry and cranberry, nut and both were huge and yummy. They have a huge breakfast menu with some very different items. You will leave this restaurant happy and full after breakfast here.

We usually get breakfast when we eat here as the choices are all excellent and varied. If you can imagine it, they have it on the menu. The poached eggs are done to perfection and all eggs are cooked to your exact specifications. The place is clean, the wait staff is very attentive and fast as well. The cooks are... More

After seeing nothing but chains on the way south, we happened upon this gem. Good home cooked food, pleasant staff and fantastic grape nut pudding.

This restaurant is fabulous! Great food, great service and great waitresses! You won't be sorry if you come here. My husband and I come here often, mostly for breakfast. Lunches are wonderful too. Please visit this place and you won't be sorry!

The food is great. No getting around that (the only reason they got so many "stars" from me"). However, certain staff members drove my family away. They're catty and sometimes inappropriate... just not conducive to a pleasant meal. I'd rather go to the pink diner down the street and have some seriously awesome french toast :)
