Wife and I ate breakfast here a couple of times during our recent Ashevile visit. Good coffee, very friendly service, and top-notch Southern breakfasts. The Early Girl Ben was amazing, and the multigrain pancakes kept me energized all morning and most of the afternoon (as...More

We were in the area to tour the Biltmore estate and had lunch here before heading over there. Busy little place, so plan on a bit of a wait but well worth it. Staff are friendly and accommodating and very efficient. The menu has some...More

They roast their own coffee and it tastes fabulous. Three entrees were all done well and tasty. Great service - ask a table by the Windows! Only down were the biscuits which were one goal short of hockey pucks. Get toast instead....Would return to try...More

If you are not in line at opening time on the weekend, be prepared to WAIT! The breakfast here is fantastic so we always make sure to visit Early Girl when we are visiting Asheville.

I ate here with my CFO, who was in town visiting from Boston. It is definitely an "Asheville" sort of place. It was lunch, but I had breakfast, which was delicious. Great Asheville atmosphere and good food at a decent price.

Food menu reads well but food is more bland then expectation. I ordered pancakes with "real maple syrup" I was a little miffed because the syrup tasted like it was cut with molasses. I thought I was crazy who would do that. Two months later...More

Early Girl is now just another one of those 'blah' kind of places now. The last several times I have been, it just hasn't been the same. It used to be fantastic. It's not bad by any stretch, it's just not a standout anymore. Wait...More

I believe so. For instance they use croutons made out of grits for their salads. I had a friend with Celiacs visit me here, and we found that it's pretty easy to find gluten free options in most restaraunts. There is a... More
