Come to Early Bird to get breakfast like it used to be-piles of pancakes, mounds of eggs, hash browns, hot coffee-no surprises, all good food,

It’s crazy crowded on the weekends, long waits but once you sit down, you get why. The food is always great and the service is friendly and once they get to know you, they don’t forget. Go and enjoy!

Everything you want in a diner breakfast, plus friendly service. I don't understand some of the negative reviews here -- it's perfectly fine. Expansive menu, some specials, good coffee. Would be a good location for Jerry Seinfeld's "Comedians in Cars . . ."

Don't expect haute cuisine - this is a cafe, after all, but the coffee is decent, the staff is friendly, and their breakfast choices are competently handled, with fair pricing. Open for lunch and now dinner, although I have doubts about the latter! Very popular...More
