The Early Bird

The Early Bird is the perfect way to start your day. Our daily breakfast starts with an egg, white cheddar and bacon on brioche.  If you have a hankerin' for something sweet, try one of daily fresh baked Hand Pie's or a Root Beer Float made with Stubborn Soda. The Daily Bird has a great selection, craft beers and wine.

Whatsa Poutine?

The story goes – in the ‘50s, in Warwick, Quebec, at Le Lutin qui rit, a customer asked owner, Fernand Lachance, to add cheese curds to his fries. His response was, “Ça va faire une maudite POUTINE,” or, “That’s going to make a mess!” And that's the moment one of Canada’s greatest inventions began ... the POUTINE. No, really. It’s #10 on a list by CBC in 2007, beating out standard time, the Bloody Caesar, and the BlackBerry, but was defeated by insulin, the telephone, and five-pin bowling. “Poutine” was added to Dictionary’s in 2014. Now you can get your "Poutine-On" in Sarasota at the Daily Bird.
