We at The Early Bird are proud to be part of the changing face of Mutley Plain & the rise of the independents in Plymouth. 

Inspired by the vibrant Australian brunch culture, we hatched only last year with the vision to create a hub where people of all ages can enjoy something we all love… BRUNCH. 

But we don’t just stop at brunch. With an on-site Artisan bakery, we make our dishes come to life using our own bread with real quality ingredients as well as our popular brownies, doughnuts, cinnamon buns & pastries.  We believe in good coffee & take pride in being the only cafe in the South West to serve speciality coffee by award-winning independent roastery, Assembly. 

With Rob & Debbie’s span of over 30 years of experience in the hospitality trade paired with fresh ideas and creativity from their children, The Early Bird is very much a family affair. All three daughters Meg, Beth and Hannah have been heavily involved from the beginning from running our social media and logistics to baking and front of the house.

We work closely with our talented chefs Adam and Chris, drawing on their international experience to create our unique blend of brunch ideas. Our passionate barista Megan and our award-winning baker Jack have been welcome additions to the nest!

The Early Bird has taken on a life of its own from the theatre of the open plan kitchen to the laughter and personalities our customers bring. You can only appreciate the vibe once you’ve been! 

So come and join us for brunch, bread, brownies, buns, doughnuts or coffee before you explore our amazing city and all it has to offer.
