“This place is the place to go if everyone in your party wants something different to eat. Great variety, good affordability, fun atmosphere, patio space. Right next to one of our local breweries, Burial Beer Co. It’s not really walkable, but definitely bike-able. That’s what we do. 5 minute drive.”
“Raleigh's latest hot ticket! Reservations a must, you might be lucky with a 5pm bar seat. ”
“Our favorite pizza place, not within walking distance but within bike or scooter distance! Their margarita pitchers are my fave!”
“Lots of eclectic shops, food and entertainment. Big Ed’s is known for their fabulous country breakfast. Homemade biscuits, grits with red eye gravy, best pancakes ever! Been around forever! ”
“Ice Cream!!! Need I say more? Good variety, local ingredients whenever possible, non dairy options (which I am very thankful for). Right next to a great wine shop if you want that kind of sweets instead. ”
