Surprise stop

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 :)

Have been coming here for years. The quality of the food has really never changed. Every business has its rough days but early bird is as consistent as it gets. You know what to expect when you go there. They sometimes have political figures come by which is always a good time. I really like all of the food here.... More

it is regrettable that we failed to please you on Mother's Day...as things are prepared to order, and made fresh each morning, we sometimes under produce...that day it was the hash, not unusual, as we make it daily and sell it out often...the same with the hand cut fruit....it was all prepared between two am and six, we have to...

If you want a traditional breakfast out, give the Early Bird a try. It's our go to place any time. Food is great, service excellent and attentive.
