I enjoy eating clean food and the food at Early Girl was just that. It had good flavor, enjoyed the coffee and the cafe atmosphere. The service was exceptional, the food very good.

We were hoping to find that "other special" breakfast location on a recent weekend getaway. A coworker had recommended Early Girl and we had also read the high reviews. The food and service were both good and they have some atypical breakfast choices. Maybe we expected it to be a destination type restaurant, and found it to be a good... More

When we arrived shortly before the restaurant opened at 9 a.m., there was a long line but we got in and the five of us took the last available table. We tried the omelettes, pancakes, a side order of vegetarian sausage and gravy, eggs and we all tasted some of each. They were all delicious. The biscuits were tasty as... More

Got take out with excellent service from the staff. The menu is varied and we found something for everyone in our family of 4. The meatloaf and pork BBQ were the highlights of the meal, and the value was quite good. We didn't eat in - so I can't speak to the ambience or service inside.

My wife and I had breakfast here in August 2015. We had a table with a view of a downtown park and shops. The food was very good. A breakfast platter with meat costs about $9. Good bread, nice decor. We'll go here again.

Arrived and a large group of people waiting outside. We had a 45" wait. There are quite a few shops close by to occupy that 45". Food was generous portions, inexpensive and wait staff was terrific. They use locally sourced ingredients. Food tasted homemade. We had the sweet potato sausage breakfast scramble w/ a biscuit=YUM! Tastes and feel like you... More

We arrived about 15 minutes before they opened. A line had already formed. Sounds like this is the norm. Excellent service, very good breakfast. Larger on the inside than it appears on the outside... Maybe seats 65 people or so. You should try it!!

We had a delicious breakfast at the Early Girl Eatery. The service was excellent and the people working there really seemed to enjoy their job. The shared bathrooms with other establishments at the Wall Street complex were very clean. I loved the way the plants in the window were hung. Loved it! Everyone in Asheville must love it too, because... More
