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 :)

We've been frequenting the Early Bird Cafe ever since we moved to the area. We love their breakfasts. Super fast, convenient, yummy food, great service! Lots of new specials every day.

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.

For basic good food in a diner atmosphere, it's just so reliable. Breakfasts, burgers, sandwiches and daily specials. Wish they would serve a lobster roll there in summer, with NO celery though.
