In light of the latest developments surrounding the coronavirus pandemic, we have made the very difficult decision to close until further notice to protect our family, our incredible staff and our loyal customers.
Since the Early Bird hatched in July 2019, we have breathed much-needed life back into Mutley Plain. We are a proudly independent, family-run brunch and lunch destination with a small, in-house artisan bakery.
We would like to take this opportunity to say THANK YOU for all your continued support since we opened. It has been more than we ever hoped for and we are incredibly proud of what we have all achieved. We are so lucky to have provided jobs for 15 people, creating a team and attracting customers that have become part of our ever-growing Early Bird family.
We are at a particularly vulnerable time on our journey, having been open for less than a year. We want to come back after this pandemic stronger and better than ever, with plans to launch 'The Late Bird' - a weekly evening pop-up, build a mezzanine to allow for more tables, to extend the kitchen and expand our in-house artisan bakery with the aim to teach people to bake.
There's lots to look forward to, so while we understand that so many others are facing similarly uncertain times, we ask that you continue to buy from independents like us, buying our coffee, breakfasts, brunches, burgers, bakes, and buns as usual in the form of vouchers, and you will be able to enjoy them when we open our doors again. Perhaps you want to treat your Mum to a Mother's Day gift or surprise someone with a birthday brunch!
If you feel like you want to give more to help us through what is set to be an unprecedented time, we will be extremely grateful.
Stay safe, and we hope to see you all brunching with us again soon.
Love Rob, Debs, the rest of the Stander Family & our EB chicks.
