My family and I always have breakfast at the Early Bird Cafe! Any time we plan to have breakfast out, we know where we'll end up. Like the friendliness of the staff, how quick the food comes out and the variety of food they serve!

Love going there, always a good experience. Good food and service is always great! It is usually very crowded on the weekends but the girls keep the tables moving.

Love this place. Staff are always friendly and attentive. Reasonable prices. The corned beef hash is the best i've had.

It is a meeting place for small or large groups. Wide menu choices and attentive waitstaff. Breakfast, lunch or dinner, Early Bird is the place. Fast food but homemade taste. Stay a short time or linger over coffee with friends/family.

Was there for breakfast, got poached eggs. They came to the table with a long black hair across one egg. When we told the waitress, she took our plate and came back a minute later with it, minus the hair! So disgusted!!!

This is our default breakfast joint. It can get busy on the weekends, but the food is consistently good and the staff, friendly. They have an option to choose organic eggs, which is another reason we dine here. Great pancakes, too.

I really think this is the best budget restaurant. I'm lucky enough to live close to it. I've done a lot of traveling and have yet to find something better. Consistently great for years. Not a easy thing. Thanks please keep it up

We had breakfast here while visiting family in the area. It was a Saturday morning and the place was full! It is clear that it is the 'place to be' for breakfast. The menu is extensive, the food was very good, the servings were large, and the service was friendly and efficient. Who knew that you could still find a... More

There was no wait for our party of 6 at 9am. Service was quick and portions were big. A wait did start shortly after 9:30. The food was good and mimosas were a great start to the day.

We came early as to avoid the crowd of a Mother's Day breakfast. It's seat yourself and we found a table as soon as we walked in. The food was delicious I got eggs and french toast. The French Toast you look at and think that doesn't look to good but then I took a bite and it was pretty... More
