Are cold starts an issue?

I haven't used Next API routes as a primary API before, and from what I understand they are mostly serverless functions, are there cold start issues?

There are cold starts, but you can choose your runtime (serless vs edge). Edge should be faster to spin up, but it has some limitations:

Im thinking it would be better to not use serverless in my case and just keep a node process open
