Life’s too short to spend eating mediocre food, especially when you live in a city like Charlotte with such a robust food scene.
We’re lucky enough to have truly incredible food options near each of our four locations to keep our tummies full (and our wallets a little lighter – no regrets). If you’re visiting with us and don’t know where to go or you’re just looking for some fresh lunch options, we’ve got your back.
Let’s break it down by location – here’s where we recommend eating when you’re hanging with us. You can’t go wrong with any of these options:
hygge hill street:
Community Matters Cafe (5 min walk) is an extension program of the Charlotte Rescue Mission, which helps people in recovery gain life skills. Come for the delicious breakfast, stay for the community support.
Graham St. Pub & Patio (10 min walk) opens for lunch at 11am daily, serving what we’d call elevated bar food. But the main attraction is the rooftop terrace with a lovely skyline view.
Little Village Grill (3 min drive) is a small Greek joint serving up all the classics. Note: the pita wraps come with fries in them… innovative stuff.
hygge west charlotte:
Pinky’s Westside Grill (4 min drive) is a CLT staple with an expansive menu of southern goodness. Open daily from 11am-10pm.
Dee’s Vegan To Go (2 min drive) is a takeout spot serving up vegan soul food dishes like mac and cheese, spicy jambalaya, chicken and waffles, and more.
Rhino Market & Deli (5 min drive) is a dependable option for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. We vote for the $5 breakfast burrito, available daily until 11am.
hygge jay street:
Not Just Coffee (1 second walk) because obviously we had to. Quiche it up.
Noble Smoke (3 min drive) might be the hottest bbq spot in town, coming from the folks behind the King’s Kitchen.
Lulu’s Maryland Style Chicken & Seafood (3 min drive) is another CLT staple serving giant plates of seafood and southern fare in a laid-back, no-frills environment.
hygge camp north end:
Leah & Louise (30 second walk) has a mouthwatering menu featuring modern interpretations of Southern classics. You gotta try this place.
Saru Ramen (3 min walk) is part of Camp North End’s impressive lineup of food stalls, and serves authentic Japanese ramen dishes. While you’re over there, check out Bleu Barn, Plant Joy and La Caseta, too!
Curry Gate (2 min drive) is right across the street from camp north end. It’s the perfect spot if you’re craving Indian takeout on your way home.
