Early Girl Eatery is an excellent restaurant featuring traditional Southern foods. It's truly a destination place that always has lines and waiting times. Worth the wait so don't give up. You'll enjoy the experience. Have a good time and good meal at Early Girl.

Early Girl Eatery has a great atmosphere, a good menu and tasty food. The service is friendly and efficient. We had a tasty and satisfying brunch, everyone loved their dish. Only complaint was they were out of iced tea.

Interesting little food shop. Entry is through a screen door passing through the kitchen area to a small, comfortable dining area full of windows. The menu is pretty standard breakfast fare with some subtle twists. Service was friendly and efficient.

A super casual, inexpensive dining experience. The laid-back atmosphere is fun and the service is, too. Quick, friendly servers and wonderful dishes. Perfect for a quick bite or a leisurely meal.

A visit to Asheville isn't complete without at least one morning's breakfast here! Kitschy atmosphere and southern inspired "feel good cuisine", like homemade biscuits, sausage, grits and eggs any way! Unlike our southern grannies, they also cater to the vegan and vegetarian persuasions! Early Girls...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
