Don't really get why this place is so highly regarded. Certainly nothing bad about it, but we found the food pretty average. Service very good but I don't think we will be rushing back.

I love the decor and food at this cute, locally-sustained eatery.

My husband and I are breakfast people. We went here after hearing these great reviews expecting to have a hearty but healthy comfort meal in an ecclectic setting. the restaurant has a great location and a great view from the windows and interesting and upbeat decor. The staff fit right in with the ecclectic nature of the place, but we didn't encounter one friendly smile at all. They were quick though. My dish was tasty but my husband was not crazy about his. In fact, he finished less than half of a fairly small portion of sweet potatoes and sausage. Overall, I thought this place had a great atmosphere and good food at decent prices. The service was lacking in friendliness and the food was nothing to write home about. We'd eat here again if we lived in Asheville, but we probably won't make the trip back on our next vacation given all the other great breakfast options there.

The food here was simply amazing! We waited about 45 minutes on a Sunday morning to brunch here (which seemed about average around town). When we got our food, I could not believe how wonderful simple things like the homefries or omelet tasted. The fresh jam is also a treat, with the vendor standing outside selling it right there.

A wonderful casual dining experience

From the outside, Early Girl Eatery looks like your typical greasy spoon diner. Once you get inside you still have that feeling, but, that's where it ends. The servers are cheerful, knowledgeable, and accommodating. The menu stresses locally grown foods which is a nice touch. They offer a good selection of Vegetarian and Vegan dishes as well as down home standards. Desserts change daily with a variety of home made cakes and pies.
If you are in Downtown Asheville, you have to stop in for a bite or two or three.
