Description: The Early Bird is owned and operated by a young Italian couple and recommended by The Guardian, The Huffington Post, Townsville Eye, MasterChef Matt Preston, DUOMagazine, TravelTalk, Visit QLD, Elsa's Wholesome Kitchen, Melbourne Weekly Review... & locals! Located on the left side of Horseshoe Bay, in a cozy place away from the tourist strip of the beachfront, under a huge Frangipani tree. #1 on TripAdvisor 2015|2016|2017, our menu is seasonal, because we proudly use only the best locally sourced produce available. Our sourdough bread, for example, comes from the best artisan bakery of North Queensland (Three Loaves Bakehouse), our coffee is ethically sourced and locally roasted by Coffee Dominion, we bake our own cakes and scones on daily basis and offer a huge selection of organic loose leaves teas and herbal infusions, stocked by The Tea Centre. We are also FULLY LICENSED, offering an Italo-Australian cocktail menu, artisan beers and a seasonal selection of wines.

It was a short br am on Magnetic and this gem of a cafe was such a highlight. Open bright and early, wonderful coffee, delicious food options for everyone.

Here is your day plan, a beach walk to the point and back (to earn your breakfast) 1st coffee at Early bird feeling grateful to be here, warm and caffeinated by lovely people and coffee then there is the view , send a message to the folk who slept in and watch them appear in time for coffee 2 and the food

Then it’s nap time on the beach with a good book. But for us it’s back to Geelong now and 6 degrees! See you next year early bird! We’ll miss you

Looking for an absolutely stellar and slightly pricey sandwich? This is your place. Great setting, adorable cafe, and delicious food

I could’ve come back 10 times and still not tried everything I liked on the menu. Delicious, healthy and environmentally conscious. Great spot with a beautiful view too! Loved it!
