I had the pancake with strawberries and whipped cream. It was enormous and delicious. The bacon I ordered was also excellent. The service was attentive and friendly. All in all a great breakfast spot.

We got to the restaurant about 8am on a drizzly Saturday morning. Walked right in and got a table. It's a small place with only about 20 tables of 2-4 seats. Four or five tables had guests when we arrived. The restaurant is in a strip center with plenty of parking. Very unassuming outside as well as inside. Diner like... More

Always a good choice for a yummy breakfast, but their lunch fare is good as well. Their fried chicken sandwich is sooo good. Their OC baking company fresh bread used is the perfect choice to seal the deal on this sandwich! Servers always friendly and polite. Only open till 2p during the week and 230p on the weekends. Healthy choices... More

Came on a Saturday around 10AM and was seated in around 25 minutes. We couldn't decide between some items, so we got all three! We got the Duck Hash, the Chorizo omelette, and the pork belly eggs benedict. The duck hash was delicious, as well as the eggs Benedict. However I thought the chorizo omelette was a bit too salty...

A group of six from work helped our boss celebrate an anniversary: color us happy and well fed. We each ordered something different and from great coffee to creative Benedicts to pancake-palloza we enjoyed lingering, laughing and friendly attentive service. A great spot to relax and enjoy.

Stopped in for breakfast on a Monday morning. The tables were not very clean. The service was not attentive. The food was just OK. Other people had great things on their plates so maybe I just ordered wrong. Single stall bathroom was adequate.

The menu is extensive and Hardy. Good clean food. Chairs are a little uncomfortable. Wish they had a coffee bar. But for Fullerton this is pretty good

We went there on Sunday, line was long but they can text you when table is ready, it took 10 mins for waiting. Food is good, stuff is great too. Portion is kind of big though. Benedict egg must try!

I have been a frequent customer of Early Bird since it opened a couple years ago. I love their version of a BLT (with tomato chutney instead of a slice, and delicious thick cut bacon) and their dutch waffle (crispy thinner waffle usually served with a delicious blue berry topping). They also usually have fun and delicious specials. The wait... More
