Another recommendation for us from friends, a stop at the Early Girl Eatery was a must. The restaurant is homey and rustic with windows all along one wall to brighten things up. Even the tables felt like something you would have in your country kitchen at home. This is an obviously popular breakfast spot by the number of patrons inside. We were lucky enough to get there in time to get a table in a nice spot in the middle of the room. We were served a cup of coffee and apple juice and took a look at the menu.
I started off with the pumpkin ginger quickbread, served warm with butter, as a delicious appetizer, while waiting for the rest of our breakfast. For breakfast, Southern breakfast with eggs your way, which meant scrambled eggs, along with toast and grits. The southern breakfast was good, but even better was the cheddar cheese omelette we ordered along with toast and some real good home fries. Finally, this was a completed with one multigrain pancake, served with real maple syrup. The pancake was very yummy and I really appreciated the fact that they served real maple syrup with their pancakes, which seemed to be the thing wherever we ordered pancakes in Asheville. Along with a good breakfast, the service here was excellent.
