  • 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!!!

  • 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.
