I've been here for lunch and dinner, but it's breakfast when/where it really shines. You feel welcome, the coffee is hot and refills are always offered, and the food is hearty.

Food was good but pricey for a diner type place. Nothing special and seems a bit run down. Was close to our hotel . Milk was not cold and waitress replaced ours n customers next to us. It tasted off. Did not go back .

Breakfast is fabulous at the Bluebird! The omelettes are great and so are their homemade donuts that are made in Sundays (I highly recommend the coconut ;-)). Go hungry because they serve large portions.
