My favorite breakfast item at Early Edition is the Wheat Germ pancakes. The pancakes are so large that I always get half an order. On this visit the pancake seemed very dry. The service was good.

The restaurant was packed! Instead of waiting (15-20 wait), we chose the sit at the counter. Super friendly service...The server was fast and efficient...The food...AMAZING and there was a lot of it! As I watched the orders come out of the kitchen, I thought to myself; "I will never be able to eat all of that..." and I was right.... More

It was a busy Saturday morning , but we only had to wait a few minutes for a table. I love their Wheat Germ Pancakes and I got a half portion which is one pancake the size of a platter. Our server was good.

This restaurant offers large servings of tasty breakfast/brunch/lunch foods that taste great. I would classify this as good old home style cooking as they serve a lot of comfort food. Tables will accommodate one or a large crowd. Feels comfortable to be there. The only complaint I would have is I believe they should have additional bathroom facilities for a... More

Blueberry pancakes that are 12" around and the breakfast tamale made for an outstanding breakfast! Get there early as the crowds build quickly.

We had to wait a little bit for a table big enough, but the food and service was great. They even asked us if we wanted something to drink while we waited. (Which we only waited 15 minutes). We will definitely come back again.

I have eaten at Early Edition several times since I wrote my original review in 2011. I am sorry to report that the quality of both the food and the facility has decreased. Recently my friends and I went there for lunch. The menu has not changed at all over the years and the food was average at best. The... More
