My wife and I visited Early Girl for brunch on a Monday in July with another couple. After having dined here once several years ago, we sought the place again. It did not disappoint. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Mine was a black bean and cheese omelet. My friend thought highly of the duck breast special. This is a casual and... More

This is a great breakfast spot. It is eclectically decorated and a fun spot. You walk in and pass the kitchen and into the dining area. It has a menu with specials on the board. The food was wonderful. I will be back!

I stop in early girl eatery often. On this occasion I just needed breakfast carry out to take to work and the biscuit sandwich and home fries were amazing as usual. Be sure to check them out for lunch and dinner too!

Visited Early Girl Eatery as part of a "Girls Night Out" with my sisters and daughter. We all really enjoyed what we ordered - swapping plates back and forth throughout the meal. My favorite was the Fried Green Tomato Napoleon. The ambiance was comfortable and the staff was very attentive and friendly. The unique menu items and interesting decor make... More

This is a popular brunch place and the food was pretty good. It has a rather rustic atmosphere and is rather crowded and tables are close together. However the service was friendly and prompt and the food was well prepared (although my first try of grits did convince me it will be my last). If you are after good, well... More

This restaurant had a long line for breakfast and for a good reason. The food was so very good. Everything the four of us ordered was incredibly delicious. The coffee was aromatic and strong as coffee should be. The service was impeccable, friendly and prompt. You might have to wait to be seated, but the food is worth it.

If you are looking for organic good, this is the place to go. We have been here several times and always leave full and happy. The atmosphere is "laid back" and the employees very friendly.

We waited 30+ min for dinner. when we arrived, we looked at the specials chalk board. I ordered the squash casserole as a side, only to be told that they were out of it. So why didn't someone take it off the chalk board??? My hubby ordered the hamburger and it was inedible. It was very dry. I ordered the... More

We waited in line about 15 minutes for the Saturday morning 9 o'clock opening. We were seated when the doors opened and enjoyed biscuits and gravy and a delicious southern breakfast! Yum! Yum! Yum!

While there is usually always a wait, it is totally worth it. The food is all fresh and of the farm to table variety (free range eggs, lots of vegan options, etc). We went for a late lunch and was not dissappointed! Our waitress was extremely upbeat and very helpful. I had the eggs and sausage while my wife had... More
