Everybody said "you gotta eat here for breakfast!" So we did the Sunday breakfast at around 11AM. We had a 45 minute wait for a table (but at least the hostess accurately predicted the time). Not much is open in Asheville at that time, so we mainly just hung around waiting. Breakfast was definitely good, but I just wouldn't say... More

It takes a special restaurant to get people to stand in the cold waiting to eat at 10 in the morning. They succeed. Smoked pork and eggs is very goid

Came in for lunch and found that they sell breakfast foods all day and ordered a stack of pancakes. They were delicious! All staff were very friendly and helpful.

I brought my vegan aunt here for dinner, and we both loved it. Quirky-cool, artsy decor, excellent service, and a unique and varied menu, which included offerings for every palate. Like that they had some local brews available, too (in cans, not draft). Truthfully, I was expecting this to be more appealing for her than for me, which is sometimes... More

Not much of an eating area, not much of a menu for gf, clean eaters, and not a great wait staff, not very clean. Small local spot for bland grandma food.

I have eaten in a fair number of places in Asheville but the best consistent and most creative menu continues to be early girl. Packed on the weekends, get out of bed and get in line early. If not please don't complain. I told you... They will have a line outside. There is a reason so get up and get... More

We had to wait -- but it was worth it! They offer you a cup of coffee to walk the street with. The street is full of precious little shops but don't go too far because they'll walk out to yell your name but they won't call your phone. Our table would recommend the black bean omelet (add the avacado!)... More

Went looking for a vegan restaurant downtown Asheville, but the one we planned on eating at was closed for the day (Tuesday), so found the Early Girl Eatery not far away. Was fairly busy, but easy to find a table. Service was quick and efficient. Breakfast is served all day, so both of us (wife) had the Vegan Tofu Scramble,... More

We went here for breakfast and had to wait 30 mins for a table. This restaurant was compared to Loveless cafe, but doesn't even come close. Everything is a la cartel or extra with breakfast. Although the food was good, we felt there was a limited menu. Prices a bit on the high side and dining tables are crammed together.

A fun breakfast spot with good breakfast food. I enjoyed a fun, tasty and filling breakfast here when my family came to visit! I highly recommend it when you are visiting!
