Food Scene
Incredible food and drinks, tapas style. Just a block away, but it is often crowded, reservations are not accepted, so get there early or be prepared to wait!

We love La Taza for the atmosphere, breakfast, bottomless coffee and customer service. They also have great brunch, lunch and dinner! They have a tiki bar that is open late and sometimes they have live music. Only about a block away from our place!

Another super restaurant just down the block! Wonderful food awaits, as well as great customer service, and great drinks. They often have live music Monday nights! The Local is a great place for those who care about the quality and source of their food, but there is something for everyone, even picky eaters. It's our best choice for the whole family or when we have parents come into town.

This is a great little find, a grocery with a fantastic chef in an informal setting. They make sandwiches and breakfast to order, and they usually have quite a few ready made things to pick up a well. They offer a to-go family dinner option, and the food is just exceptional.

If you're looking for a speakeasy or "secret" place, this is it! The food and drinks are spectacular and they've already been recognized internationally! You CAN get a reservation here, a major plus, but it is small, so get them in advance. Located on the Downtown Mall, about 12-15 minute walk from our place.

I love found market (located next door to the Belmont Arts Collaborative) because of their top notch customer service and their adorable and eclectic space. You can go and get some work done, have some wonderful baked goods (including some great gluten-free options!), buy gifts, take a class, or just enjoy the decor.

Incredible tacos, great price, and located at the IX Art park. It only takes about 15 minutes to walk there from our place and they have vegan, paleo, GF, and Keto options. Go next door to SweetHaus for dessert if you dare! I recommend the "I Love you So Much" taco!

Our #1 place for dessert in Charlottesville, well ANYwhere for that matter. They always have their amazing homemade tried and true flavors, but the owner is also always experimenting with new flavors and ideas. Great prices and customer service!

Entertainment & Activities
I founded this adorable little black box theatre, where you can find music events, plays, children's theatre and improv comedy. Check it out at BelmontArts.org and I'm happy to give you a tour if you like!

Our favorite movie theater is on the downtown mall. They have incredible food (and drinks!) you can eat at your seat - and speaking of seats - the front row reclines!

You can spend ALL day on the downtown mall, from coffee to after dinner drinks. You really can't go wrong with any of the restaurants or places to shop. We have such an eclectic mix of places and there is something for everyone!

You'll find some great antiques as well as modern pieces in this eclectic shop just down the road! We love browsing while we wait to have dinner at The Local or Mas. Great customer service!

The CAT bus line is great, but we especially love the free trolley. You can walk to the Water street bus station to catch it and take a self guided tour around UVA grounds and back downtown.
