We got to the restaurant about 8am on a drizzly Saturday morning. Walked right in and got a table. It's a small place with only about 20 tables of 2-4 seats. Four or five tables had guests when we arrived. The restaurant is in a...More

Always a good choice for a yummy breakfast, but their lunch fare is good as well. Their fried chicken sandwich is sooo good. Their OC baking company fresh bread used is the perfect choice to seal the deal on this sandwich! Servers always friendly and...More

We went there on Sunday, line was long but they can text you when table is ready, it took 10 mins for waiting. Food is good, stuff is great too. Portion is kind of big though. Benedict egg must try!

The food was very good, but I was expecting outstanding food based on the other reviews. What brings this down from a very good to average is the atmosphere. The metal chairs/tables are not that comfortable and I never feel very relaxed when leaving. We've...More

I like supporting small business, especially local ones. Early Bird is definitely a local, small business serving up great breakfast and lunch. On weekends, expect a line with a wait time of up to an hour. The restaurant is small, the portions hearty, and the...More
