An EGGciting Experience: The Early Bird
The early bird gets the worm, but the late bird gets brunch (so who’s really winning here?). Brunch is one of my all-time favourite meals and you can never go wrong with the classic: good old Eggs Benedict.
I had previously dabbled around a few different brunch places in London, but nothing compared to the experience I had when I visited the Early Bird. Brunch at the Early Bird is definitely a place you want to get an early bird to.
The Early Bird is conveniently located in London’s downtown core, off of Richmond Street and just a short bus ride from campus. Walking into the Early Bird you are instantly greeted by a hip atmosphere that will automatically get you into a good mood. The décor combines both edgy and aesthetic vibes which helps to create a really eclectic and unique, but strangely homey atmosphere. Full of funky posters and rows upon rows of vinyls, the Early Bird has a timeless feel to it.
Just like their décor, their food also finds themselves with a unique twist on typical breakfast items. I ordered the Egg McJustin and my friend had ordered the French Toast. The Egg McJustin was described as your typical breakfast: two eggs, homefries, sausage, bacon, and some bread. I had no idea that I was in for a surprise when it all showed up in burger formation with the egg on top of the bread?!? I found myself kind of skeptical about the taste, but honestly I have no regrets ordering it.
You know that feeling you get when you eat something so good you are instantly overwhelmed with a feeling of warmth and happiness? That was the feeling I got while eating it. The sandwich was like a McDonalds Sausage Egg McMuffin, but on steroids and despite the unconventional presentation, I was more than satisfied with my experience and would definitely go again.
If you are looking for a different twist on a classic breakfast, try out The Early Bird for a breakfast experience unlike any other. The only thing you will regret is not getting an early start on this restaurant.
