I went to Early Bird on a Saturday afternoon a few weeks ago (soon after it opened I suppose) and it was packed. People had to wait to get a table.

I don't know whether it's still like that now, or what their business is like during the week.

Yeah so much for the average hour wait...did I mention the staff were having lunch at the bartop while we waited for an hour, the management was also enjoying a mid-day beverage.
Fingas still rates very highly for me...good quality and range of food.
I can remember the fourth of July runnin' through the backwood bare.
And I can still hear my old hound dog barkin' chasin' down a hoodoo there

Still open?

Great food, a bit overpriced.

Got my bread there. Miss that place.

Just got back from Finga's. Pretty good! Greek Salad was fresh and the tomatos were RED. Minestone soup was spot on. The Lazagna was a spin off, not authentic but pretty good. More like a shepard's pie taste. Wife had the garden burger. They obviously make it themselves and it was really good. Kid's had spegghetti and meatballs. Not spiced enough and the meatballs were tough but it'll do in a pinch. Service was a bit slow but well intentioned. All in all, I'll go back. They also bake their own bread. We got some sourdough to take home.

How about the Food service?
I am telling Derek that you made a suggestive comment about Lily :eek:
Agree , I buy many Lasagne squares to take away. :lick:
Earlybird seems to be a weekend Breakfast/Brunch place now. Still enjoy a Ben Usually breakfast every week.

I just finished eating at Finga's, absolutely no problem with the service! The girl who looked after us was polite, bubbly, and full of smiles.

The food was (in my opinion) bland and uneventful.

I had the minestrone soup, which was watery and lacking in.flavor. My main was the Moroccan braised lamb,which was well cooked (not too dry), but again very bland in flavor.

My BF (Taiwanese) had the Irish Snapper Pie, which he absolutelyloved, but which I also found bland .

DISCLAIMER ...I have stopped smoking cigarettes, but am now a heavy user of the Ecigarette/nicotine vaporizer, I don't know to what extent that is affecting my taste buds.

Anyway, no problems with the service.
