We came to the Early Girl Eatey early on a Saturday morning hoping to get in before the crowds. Mission accomplished! But soon after sitting down, they put a huge table right along side of us so every time a waiter walked by, they hit our chairs or kicked the table. Sadly, It really took away from the experience.

Great breakfast and the home fries are delicious! The kitchen seems a bit cramped but it was packed and the food came out pretty quickly. Polite staff and friendly responses to questions. Will return.

Had a fabulous lunch here on a recent girls weekend. Stopped in after the mid-day lunch crowd - had a short wait. I had the chicken sandwich on wheat with bacon and goat cheese. Phenomenal.

Enjoyed breakfast , but waited for a long time. Pancakes good. May go to another restaurant, as seating is limited.

We ate here on a Monday and I was surprised at how crowded it was. We had a 30 minute wait so we browsed a few nearby shops. The food was great. The place was small and crowded, but the windows helped make it seem more airy.

We really enjoyed our first visit to Early Girl. As vegans, it was wonderful to find some things on the menu that we could order, such as the tofu scramble and the tempeh dishes. The roasted potatoes were quite yummy, too. Was a long wait on the weekend (about 45 minutes) but they offer complimentary coffee while you're waiting which... More

We ate here for dinner after spending the day at the Biltmore. My cousin and his wife had honeymooned in the area and discovered this place, so they had recommended it. I loved being able to order breakfast even though it was dinner time! I enjoyed some biscuits and gravy, eggs, bacon and grits. My husband had meatloaf and veggies.... More

My husband, son and I went here for lunch while visiting Asheville before Xmas. We arrived around 1 pm and waited for about 10 minutes for a table. My son had a scramble and my husband had an omelet...both said their meals were good. I decided to have just a piece of banana cake with chocolate frosting, as I didn't... More

The breakfast was excellent and it was worth the 30-45 minute wait. It seems that you have to get there early and plan ahead as to your level of hunger. They do have coffee while you wait, but it was so busy when we were there that the coffee pot went unrefilled for quite a while. At least you know... More

My husband and I stumbled upon this restaurant while vacationing nearby. Great find! So tired of the same kind of food everywhere else. I ordered sweet potato black bean cakes with sides of collards and Mac and cheese - everything was so delicious!! We came at an odd time and every employee was still very kind and cheery. :-)
