I only gave it 4 stars because we sat before a few tables but they end up getting their food faster. Qaitress told me that cook had to start over on my order. This should've been known before bringing our food to us. I would...still eat here again...More
This was a super popular spot when I googled so was excited to give it a try. The wait wasn't too bad. I ordered the chicken and biscuits with a side of grits and was super disappointed. The grits were a bit watery and bland....I've never had bad fried chicken until I tried the tenders - bland as well. Didn't taste like they had any seasoning at all. The service was great though!More
Ate here for breakfast and was really ho hum. And pricey! We all agreed our breakfasts were pretty nondescript. 4 of us ate here, had pancakes, a western omelette, and a yam omelette. Place is cute and trendy and staff was very nice. Service okay....I am a tea drinker and they had a nice local tea. The only sweetener they had was raw sugar and it never dissolves very well in anything. Our server asked if we wanted a biscuit with our meal, and we said yes, but they were $3 extra. ha! I collect glasses from restaurants where we eat while traveling and they had a cute little "Early Girl" glass for $7.More
This is a popular spot, and the wait is likely long in the morning, but the food is well done and more creative than most brunch joints. I would expect tourists as well as locals to come regularly. Service was quick, and there were no...issues. I definitely would recommend checking it out!More
What a great foodie restaurant for locals and tourists! My Apple and Berry Salad was a good recommendation by our very fun and sweet waitress, Erica. The side biscuits with the Southern Tomato Gravy, was icing on the cake! However, the Shroomie Garden Sandwich was...my wife's favorite, and by my one 'large' bite she shared, I can certainly vouch for her. The sandwich comes on a tasty, Rye bread that goes so well with the portabella mushrooms, carmelized onions on the spinach base. The Hot Tea was the perfect addition to this wonderful lunch we shared in beautiful downtown Asheville together. Will definitely be back, when visiting!!More
We had brunch. This establishment was excellent with following Covid guidelines of masks and social distancing. The chicken and waffles was fantastic! As was the herb and goat cheese omelet. Excellent service.
I fully recommend to visit Early Girl Eatery, the food is well prepared and you can feel the flavor of the natural ingredients. Make your reservation ahead, the restaurant follows CDC guidelines regarding occupancy.
