We Missed You!

All locations are open

8 AM – 8 PM

Dine In + Carry Out.

Please do wear face masks when visiting us.

Although allowed to be at 50% capacity, our commitment to safety has our dining rooms at less than the allowed seating.  We will be utilizing a text message waitlist system.  All guests on the waitlist will be asked to wait in their cars or outside (not in patio areas where guests may be eating).  Everyone’s safety is important and we really thank you for dining with us.

  • ...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!!!

  • 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.

  • 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.
