Was my first location i have chosen to eat breakfast at and do not regret it, the staff was wonderful and the food was incredible. I chose to have the blt sandwich with house salad and it was delivered to my table in a timely manner. Service was amazing and made me feel welcomed. Would strongly recommend family and friends to enjoy a nice warm meal at this location. Cheers ?Parking: Parking was located right outside of the restaurant and was very convenient

I was introduced to the early bird by my friend Karla. Her family frequented this establishment for years! I fell in love with the early bird. A good ol’ coffee restaurant. And the coffee is good too.Kid-friendliness: Awesome for kids.Parking: Parking is great. Lots of parking in the area available.

I was very impressed with the Early Bird Cafe. I was in a 2 day business meeting workshop with 12 people, we pre-ordered lunch from two different restaurants to save time, when we arrived at the first restaurant on day one, even though we pre ordered the staff had no idea of who we were and it took them 35 mins to bring our food out.Day two, we arrive at the Early Bird Cafe, they were ready for us, we got setted and drinks were ordered immediately, our food started being served within 7 mins of arrival. The food was excellent and we even had time for a nice walk before needing to head back to our workshop.Well Done Early Bird Cafe, you blew the other restaurant out of the water.


Was very busy but staff friendly and service was fantastic . Food always good.

It’s very hard to find good restaurants like this in Canada. Food, Outstanding. Service, Impeccable. Humour, right on. Nice that they get their food local right from the farms ! Thank-you for making my day!

A lovely little cafe. Super friendly, homey atmosphere and reasonable prices. We were looking for a simple breakfast and found it here. Eggs done as requested, bacon done right. Will come again next time we’re in town.

Went for breakfast yesterday with my kids and grandkids. I haven't been there since I moved away 6 years ago but they still have the same great breakfast for reasonable prices and the staff were very friendly.

I love the Early Bird Cafe! This spot does breakfast and lunch, nothing else but it does it well and with great consistency. We stay in a spot in Courtenay with a kitchen but on each stay we have breakfast at the Early Bird at least once. I love the waitresses, they are older, and will make sure that you are well cared for while you are in their house. Go there, you won't be sorry!

It obviously takes a little bit of rewatching and all that, I have roughly doubled my money over the last 2 and a half years or so. Let’s hope I can do that again using the fundamentals taught by
