Love this place, the staff is the best ever and the food is awesome. The veggie breakfast bowl is my favorite. And the pancakes are fantastic.

We kind of stumbled across this place while wondering around town. We are big fans of tupelo honey and this has a similar, but smaller vibe. It was fun and delicious. We had fried green tomatoes to start. I had the special duck breast and grilled cabbage. My wife had country fried chicken. Both were excellent. The service was a... More

We Love Early Girl. Food is always great, service is always great. Waiting in line can be an issue, sometimes it's almost an hours wait but we've never been disappointed with our meal. Best advice is to go between breakfast/lunch or for a later lunch, beat the crowd and waiting line.

This is a small storefront on Wall St which extends back into a larger bright dining area. The menu is excellent, but check out the daily specials on the chalkboard. The spinach/potato cakes were an outstanding off-menu special. My Local Sausage and Sweet Potato Scrambled Eggs (menu) was likewise outstanding with complimentary side of sliced tomatoes. The desserts are in... More

Such a neat little spot hidden away on Wall St like a little nugget you have to search for. My favorite thing here are the fried green tomatoes. Their presentation stacked up with goat cheese, basil and a secret sauce is hard to beat. Everything I've had has been very good and a nice price point. My only negative is... More

Early Girl never lets you down. The food from breakfast to dinner is fabulous and the staff is friendly and fast. Good coffee - bold and flavorful. Great location right downtown on Wall Street, close to everything. Does get noisy.
