Interesting and reasonably priced. Good diversity of menu. Not very fancy. Asheville earthy. Pulled pork for lunch solid.

Amazing. Everything was so fresh and light. We started off with the pumpkin ginger bread. The flavor was spot on. A airy start to our meal. Next I had the quiche with a side of fruit and home fries. You can actually taste the food...More

I always enjoy this restaurant. It's very casual, laid back, and quirky. The wait staff are very chill, and the food is always locally sourced and tasty. If you miss this restaurant, you're missing a treat!

We loved the sunny room, hipster vibe, and great breakfast. Healthy choices, whole grains, items for the gluten free and the vegetarian. Service is fast. Near all the shopping. Start your downtown day Asheville day here!

Looking for a breakfast spot on a windy Friday morning in Asheville, we ducked into Early Girl. The entrance is less than inviting and you have to go past the open kitchen to reach the dinning room. Once there, you understand why it's a local...More

Early Girl is known for it's good food and that's what you get. This is not a gourmet restaurant, but a meatloaf and mashed potatoes type of restaurant. But, the restaurant puts in the time to make the meals very good at reasonable prices. Try...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
