We arrived a few minutes after 10:0AM. This is a large restaurant with lots of tables and booths. There was a small number of people in the main dining room at this time and one large group of ten in a separate room. Shortly after we arrived, another 10 to 12 people arrived. It was Seat Yourself so we found... More

We stopped here for breakfast on our way out and I'm so glad we did. I'm picky about my biscuits and gravy, and Early Edition delivered! They were fairly quick about getting our food to us, though our waitress didn't come by often. All in all, I'd eat here again in a heartbeat.

The breakfast here is really good. I've been several times and the service is always good the everything I have eaten has been great. The french toast is very good. You won't leave hungry. It is very busy on the weekends.

This is our "go to" family breakfast stop if we want a friendly smile and tasty consistent food. Good stuff.

I was told by the locals that this was a great breakfast spot, and they were right! The chicken and waffles were delicious, and the breakfast potatoes were very good as well. There was a short wait on the Saturday morning I was there, but well worth it! Clean and modern with moderate prices! I recommend!

I did the Salmon Omelet with a side of red potatoes, my friends got other omelets with various sides. We all enjoyed our meals.

My favorite breakfast item at Early Edition is the Wheat Germ pancakes. The pancakes are so large that I always get half an order. On this visit the pancake seemed very dry. The service was good.

The restaurant was packed! Instead of waiting (15-20 wait), we chose the sit at the counter. Super friendly service...The server was fast and efficient...The food...AMAZING and there was a lot of it! As I watched the orders come out of the kitchen, I thought to myself; "I will never be able to eat all of that..." and I was right.... More

It was a busy Saturday morning , but we only had to wait a few minutes for a table. I love their Wheat Germ Pancakes and I got a half portion which is one pancake the size of a platter. Our server was good.

This restaurant offers large servings of tasty breakfast/brunch/lunch foods that taste great. I would classify this as good old home style cooking as they serve a lot of comfort food. Tables will accommodate one or a large crowd. Feels comfortable to be there. The only complaint I would have is I believe they should have additional bathroom facilities for a... More
