Respond to Review of Early Girl Eatery
by Diner Dave

Review: I was never the biggest fan, but I used to think it was OK until I had several poor experiences in a row. I can't really comment on lunch and dinner fare except that there wasn't much veggie food even worse for vegans and what I had was not very good given the other choices in Asheville. At breakfast or brunch they have some veggie options, but just one or two options for vegans. Breakfast was OK, but overpriced and lacked quite a bit in the flavor department. They just don't seem to get vegetarian taste there. For example the gravy (I love some good soysage gravy)tastes like flour water and rosemary giving it a funky flavor. They seemed to use the same gravy recipe at their now closed restaurant, "North Star Diner". Everything else there was much better than Early Girl. I don't get why the good menu got junked with the bad location and the good location has the bad menu. I used to go if an out of town guest or family member wanted to go, but after my last visit over a year ago I now refuse. I got cold food and the waitress was sour enough to spoil any appetite. Every time the two servers hustled past us they would slam against the back of our chairs making for a bumpy ride, I mean meal, in a tiny little restaurant. I even asked them very politely to please stop or asked if we should move over and she rudely took off and sent someone back who reprimanded me for "complaining about the tight quarters". I guess they can do just fine without my family's business and I really don't miss the food, the cramped dining room, the bad attitudes, or the long waits. And they keep traffic out of other really good breakfast or brunch joints on the block. So please go to Early Girl and leave the others for us. :)
