Early Bird Hospitality Group is a locally owned and operated hospitality group focused on concepts that deliver memorable experiences through our restaurants. Danika and Zach Ohly have almost 40 years combined experience in the hospitality industry of Minnesota, Colorado, and California. Prior to moving back to his hometown of Rochester, Minnesota, Zach was cooking at one of the best restaurants of the world, The French Laundry in Yountville, California. Danika was working at the prestigious and award winning Auberge du Soleil in Rutherford, California. Using their combined culinary experience, they opened Cameo in November 2018. Early Bird Hospitality Group evolved from there! In addition to Cameo, they also own and operate Cafe Relish, located in the Rochester Athletic Club, and Ziggys, their new ghost kitchen concept.
Cafe Relish is located inside the Rochester Athletic Club and is open to the public. Our restaurant is based on the idea of chef-driven, fast dining in a casual setting. Our ingredients are responsibly sourced, always fresh and made to order by real chefs at competitive prices. In addition to dining in our restaurant, we also provide easy to take menu items for people with busy schedules who need to quickly grab lunch or dinner.
Ziggys is our new fast casual ghost kitchen concept serving hand dipped chicken tenders, smash burgers and other fun creations for all the connoisseurs of fried chicken. All of our food is freshly made in house to order, including our buttermilk brined chicken, house pickles, and all of our original sauces. Orders can be placed through our website or through Doordash.
