What a great spot to grab a filling breakfast. Earley’s Kitchen is a Southern restaurant that serves soul food for breakfast and brunch.
Finding out Earley’s Kitchen was not too far from Florida A&M University was an excitement in itself. Walking toward the restaurant, my friend and I couldn’t help but take notice of the venue and the cleanliness outside. There were also tables outside, giving customers the option to eat indoors or outdoors.
As I entered Earley’s, a delicious aroma welcomed my morning taste buds. It was around nine when we arrived so the wait was short. We were welcomed by two lovely young ladies who were eager to serve. Being that it was my first time the server had no problem assisting me with the menu. The customer service overall was a nine.
The food was inexpensive. I ordered two side plates, grits, and eggs with no meat and a pancake which in total cost less than $10. Disclaimer, pancakes are not on the menu so you have to ask. Unfortunately, I didn’t enjoy the pancake and exchanged it for a biscuit. The best experience at Earley’s was the biscuit. It was super soft and slightly crunchy. By far, the best biscuits I’ve ever had.
The food was also served hot and delicious. Between the grits and the biscuit, Earley’s has done an exceptional job. The eggs weren’t wet and the bacon was quite crispy.
Besides the amazing breakfast, Earley’s serves Southern country cooking such as fried chicken, pork chops and Savannah-style dishes such as shrimp and grits. Earley’s Kitchen is most popular for its fried chicken. Dining in, you could notice the many people who come in to get their plate and enjoy the Southern cuisine.
My overall experience at Earley’s Kitchen went well. The food was tasty and the staff was well put together. They tended to all their customers’ needs and for that I am impressed.
Earley’s hours of operation are similar to any brunch restaurant. They are open Monday-Friday from 6:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Saturday from 7 am-noon.
Earley’s Kitchen is located at 1458 South Monroe St.
