A Farm-to-Table Southern Comfort Food Experience!

Since 2001 we’ve been combining the best local ingredients to create delicious Southern-inspired comfort food.  Thank you for allowing us to serve you for 19 years.

More than Made from Scratch ® guides us in every food decision. Sure we make all our food in house, but we go a step farther to source the highest quality ingredients. Our recipes reflect our belief that by making Local, Organic, Seasonal, or fresh ingredients our first choice whenever possible that we are serving the absolute best food to our guests.

We serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner all day.  Our specials change every two weeks.

Please do wear face masks when visiting us.

The County of Buncombe has a stricter than NC state capacity setting.  We have a max seating of 30%.  We utilize a text message waitlist system.   After texting a table is ready, these capacity limits also force us to hold a spot for a maximum five-minutes. 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.

  • 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.
