The Early Bird is a small breakfast place in downtown Northville. Consistent good food with a great staff and fast service. We love our server Annie who is wonderful! She takes great care of us! The busssers are also top notch.

We've become regulars. This is the place we compare other breakfast places to. Fresh, quality food -- terrific omelettes, thick bacon, juicy sausages, old fashion freshly squeeze orange juice-- great stuff!! Only complaint is that it's pretty crowded on Saturday and Sunday mornings.
