There are two ways to get to this eatery- through a building and up the stairs or just off the street. It is set back in the building but has lots of room with communal tables to eat at. Food was delicious with daily specials...More

I don't live here, but have eaten here on my last two visits to Asheville and we LOVE it! I don't understand the poor reviews that this place has gotten. It's an adorable little cafe on a neat street. We've gone on a Monday morning...More

An excellent place to have breakfast food in (I had the porky breakfast bowl and it was amazing!) My friend had a fish that was a bit over priced for me. The atmosphere there was really nice and the restaurant design was cool. The one...More

The food here was absolutely amazing. We came here mainly because they offer Benton's bacon which in my opinion, is the best smoked bacon in the south. We ordered the biscuit and gravy (that had Benton's bacon), porky breakfast bowl and shrimp and grits. We...More

We have only eaten dinner here but do on a regular basis. The Early Girl appetizer plate with humus, pimento cheese and guacamole salad is a favorite. I was sad they dropped the trout from the menu but found another great entree. Atmosphere is fun...More

This was my favorite breakfast place during my trip to Asheville, and that's saying something. They offered a great American-style breakfast. For me the best part was that they had lots of high-protein vegetarian options. The service was good and fast, the coffee was decent,...More
