Fantastic food!

This is our second time to Early Girl but first time for breakfast. There was a little bit of a wait but it was well worth it. Food was fantastic!

This place really epitomizes Asheville: funky, odd and terrific. Great selection of food and beverages (the burger was spot on) and their fries were wonderful as well. A definite spot to plan on when in Asheville.

We ate here for breakfast while on vacation. It was very busy and we were told a 15 minute wait, but they seated us within a few minutes. Dining area is very tight and cramped, but it has a cheerful atmosphere. Staff was friendly and prompt, and food was very tasty with generous portions. We had our toddler with us,... More

Love the homey atmosphere and vibe of this place. We also had excellent service. I got a glass of organic apple juice which was very good. My friend got an order of biscuits and vegetarian gravy for us to all share, very good. I got the Early Girl Benny with a biscuit, it was awesome. I also got one of... More

Asheville has a multitude of restaurants to choose from. As we walked along the streets on the downtown area, it was tough to choose, so we checked out TA. Early Girl offers fresh, many organic and local choices. Don't be fooled by the small entry area. The main eating area is in the back. The food is good, the staff... More

We ate breakfast here on Memorial Day. It was one of the very few downtown restaurants open in the morning. It was busy, with a fairly long wait, and the food was fine. They had a basket of toys--old happy meal toys I imagine--that they gave our toddler grandson to play with at the table. That was a helpful addition.

Food was very good as was the service, food prep, and the presentation. There are so many excellent eateries in Asheville, it is very difficult to rate them, but this one rates up there near the top.
