‘The Fat Elvis’ at The Early Bird in London, Ont.

If you’re in the mood for some classic diner fare with a twist, you might want to give The Early Bird, on Talbot Street just south of Budweiser Gardens, a try.

While the restaurant is reminiscent of the 50s diner, it’s all modern hipster, with great graphics and fun art covering the walls of the tiny place.

Oh, and the food’s great too. Everyone in our party of four loved their meals, with the kind of exclamations that make you blush just a little.

My meal was ‘The Fat Elvis,’ a French toast sandwich with house smoked bacon, honey, peanut butter and fried bananas all topped with maple syrup. Yum.

So now you understand what I mean when I say a ‘twist.’

The full menu is on their website, and outside of breakfast fare, perogies and fun sandwiches also feature prominently

If you don’t believe me, you can always watch their segment on Food Network Canada’s You Gotta Eat Here!
