Travel Insight: Grab a Table at Early Girl Eatery in Asheville, N.C

Pin It

Asheville, N.C.

You know a restaurant is good when you have to wait 20 minutes for a table before the lunchtime rush.

That’s what happened when my family popped into the Early Girl Eatery, located on historic Wall Street in downtown Asheville, when we were in town touring the Biltmore Estate this past weekend.
Let’s just say that a table here is worth the wait, no matter what time of day you go.

Farm-to-Table Restaurant in Asheville, NC

Since 2001, this Asheville eatery has been cooking up Southern goodness “made from scratch.” As you know, I’m a Southern gal, and all those farm-fresh veggies delight my palate. My entire family ordered a farm-fresh breakfast, which is served all day, except for me.

I went Southern all the way. Yessiree!

I ordered grilled pimento cheese with spinach and tomato on whole wheat bread with a side of honeyed beets for me.

It was melt-in-your-mouth fantastic! Gosh, those beets were good.

Early Girl Eatery is bright and cheerful in décor. Patrons can even buy the art right off the walls.

This establishment is one of the many farm-to-table restaurants popping up in North Carolina and Asheville. The menu relies heavily on the high-quality local produce grown in the area by family farms and community-supported agriculture (CSAs). The cheeses and some of the meats are also produced and raised locally. The menu changes periodically with the seasons, and the specials change daily. My spectacular honeyed beets were a daily special vegetable while I was there.

The Early Girl serves dinner Tuesday through Saturday night with a local craft beer and wine menu. It offers breakfast and lunch seven days a week.

Trust me, Early Girl Eatery is just one of those restaurants that will make you crave to go back to Asheville, North Carolina.
