Early Bird does not look spectacular from the outside, and from the outside is just 'k, however the food and service was much better than the looks. I had a meat lovers skillet and I have rarely seen so much meat, sausage, bacon, ham, you name it, it was in there. Really good. My wife had the waffle, which was... More

Having lived here for two decades, I am ashamed to say that until recently I have never given this place a second thought. Until recently. Although the exterior is rather shoddy, the food and service are extremely good. The menu also came as quite a surprise. All kinds of egg dishes, as well as crepes, waffles, french toast, etc.I am...

Took our granddaughter for breakfast and the food was not only good but lots of it. Fair prices and great food, what a combo. The all in breakfast is awesome and our granddaughter had the chocolate chip pancakes. Been many times before and thought about time to let people know about this gem

Went for breakfast for a meeting recently. Service was quick and consistent throughout. Got eggs, bacon, homefries and toast. Eggs cooked proper, toast a lil dry but the bacon was just crispy and crumbled in your mouth - not the texture I like. Fair prices for sure. Parking was horrendous.

Lots of great choices. Very busy. I would have given a five but the coffee is bad. Don't let that keep you from going. The eggs Benedict are fantastic.

The food was great and inexpensive the restaurant only accepts cash. They do have an ATM in store if needed.

We have been coming here at least once a month for a weekend breakfast with the family for a couple years now. My two young boys refuse to go anywhere else. The service is always friendly, happy and you feel like you are being served in the comfort of your own home. It's that comfortable. The food is always fresh,... More

The title says it all! I love the food. I always get a plate with everything to eat because I love it all! Eggs are never crispy (I like mine over hard which tends to get crispy on the bottom) toast is good, bacon is almost never over done or under done, the home fries have a great flavour, and... More
