Our dinner (catfish) came quickly and was tasty. The price for the meal with an appetizer for two and ice teas was a bit costly however.

I enjoy the food at Early Girl, and eat there when I want a satisfying multigrain pancake breakfast or brunch downtown. They have a wide menu. I find the prices of the sandwiches high for what you get, so I tend to stick with breakfast-type...More

Staff was incredibly knowledgeable and upbeat! Wish there were more gluten free options but the almond salad was delicious.

I came here upon recommendations and I have to say was not wowed by the whole experience. Ordered the omelet special for the day which was a 3-mushroom omelet. Service is great and coffee brew is excellent, other than that, overall average.

Good catfish, cukes in vinegar like my mom used to make, great tempeh, terrific cheese and pickles plate, lousy and stale chocolate cake.

Hands down the best breakfast in town. I'm so happy that we gave it a try. The pumpkin bread will melt in your mouth and the cheese and herb omelette is to die for. Service was great, restaurant is quaint and food is outstanding!

We went for brunch. I had coffee and the black bean and cheese omelette. My wife had the sweet potato and sausage scramble. It was all great. The service was great too.
