Breakfast at the Early Girl is always sure to be a win. No matter what time of day, year, month or season, the team here manages to consistently offer an excellent experience. Again, we make our pilgrimage to Early Girl as many times as possible during our visits to Asheville. It would be too difficult to single out any one... More

When you are strolling around downtown Asheville, looking at all the galleries and working up an appetite, consider stopping in to the Early Girl for lunch or brunch. The menu has a lot of variety. Have eaten their several times when we have visited Asheville and have never been disappointed. Soups, salads, sandwiches, special of the day. Desserts are wonderful... More

I ate here on a Monday. It wasn't too crowded and I was able to be seated promptly. I parked right in front. I had one of the eggs scrambles that had sweet potatoes and bacon and it came with a biscuit. I also had a cup (or several cups) of coffee. The biscuit was very good with the jam... More

We had an excellent brunch at this location! The food was so fresh and the hospitality was on point. The staff was friendly and welcoming:). It has its own unique vibe. I was pleasantly surprised! We will have to go back! I strongly recommend this local brunch place.

Dined here for breakfast on several friends' recommendations. On top of everything being fresh, local and scrumptiously delicious (they even had Rabbit on the menu!), I have RAVE reviews for Early Girl Eatery because it's the only restaurant, in my entire life, that makes my Granny's biscuits. They taste and look exactly like her's, which absolutely blew my mind! You... More

Early Girl Eatery was recommended to us for a light breakfast or brunch when we arrived in Asheville, prior to touring the Biltmore. We arrived at 10:30am and the place still had a lively breakfast (or brunch) crowd. We were seated immediately and waited on promptly. We had the quiche entree and biscuit with egg and cheese. The food was... More

The early girl is located on Wall Street in asheville and the entrance suggested a pretty small local eatery! The seating was in the back of the restaurant and was spacious and sunny. The breakfast menu is really good.....we had omletes that were huge and could chose anything from veggie healthy to heart attack between eggs. Chocolate cake creation was... More

So, the food was decent...but the LEMONDADE, though!! I would slap my momma for that lemonade, real talk. The atmosphere was cool, too.

Eclectic decor, windows were open to the beautiful fall weather. The service was lackluster. The food is bland and expensive. Convenient location downtown. Skip it!
