Very busy, noise level isn't suitable for business lunch. Tables crowded into the space for maximum capacity. Food was decent though not really much to write home about. Staff was nice though seemed a bit overwhelmed. Really no place to wait until a table was available except outside the restaurant. One bench along the street provides the only resting area.... More

a relaxed setting popular with locals and tourists,Breakfast all day and locavore lunch menu, plus helpful friendly but relaxed servers make this a fine place to grab a bite.Food is good. prices reasonable .Not haute cuisine but a good default restaurant.Biggest problem is that if you don't get there early you are likely to have a wait.Worth it.

Just as they name implies you need to get there early since a line often forms before they even open the door. The atmosphere is just as good as the food and is a great way to start the day in Asheville. The biscuits are yummy and the shrimp and grits will definitely satisfy your hunger.

I love the Wall Street location, but the restaurant was extremely busy and loud. The food was so-so.

The Early Girl located on Wall Treet was difficult to find as it is tucked away. We arrived late in the afternoon for lunch. My omelet was just average and my husband's grilled cheese was okay too. We were the only people in the restaurant. For an easy simple meal try The Early Girl.

A friend of mine and I were in town for a short weekend and this place was recommended by a local. We had a great brunch and the service was excellent (and very fast). It was crowded and I completely understand why. It was delish!

Plan on waiting, but it will be worth it. Mixed berry jam excellent with the biscuits. Very friendly staff. Great breakfast and lunch entrees! Loved the grits!

We have been eating here for 10 years. We hate that the tourists take up all our tables as the food is great!!

It's hard to get in, especially on weekend but food is worth waiting! I strongly recommend sweet potato scramble.

Had breakfast for lynch. The fried green tomatoes were very hiid, but did not like the grits. They were hominy grits which I do not like. The omlet was greasy. The place was noisy and I found the waiters not professional. Not what I expected and very disappointed.
