What people are saying about Early Girl Eatery…

“No place captures the flavor of Asheville and the rural mountains of western North Carolina like the Early Girl Eatery on Wall Street in downtown. …
a restaurant where people feel that they’re paying for the food on their plate and not everything else.
– Diana Schmitt, Our State

 “Was excited to check out this place on our trip to Asheville, and it didn’t disappoint. Located downtown, this place seems like the place to grab a bite on a Saturday morning. There is a nice vibe and energy to this place. Full of locals AND out of towners. Food is locally grown, fresh, and in season.”

"...we dream about the next time we will be able to come and eat at Early Girl. We finally got to come up yesterday, and it was fabulous as usual. Black eyed pea hummus is a must. We don't eat out much because it's hard to find a place where you know what you're getting, but Early Girl is it. Thanks!!!" - Russell in Easley, SC
