Eating Charlotte’s best could take a few weeks; but if you’ve got a single day to taste the Queen City’s quintessential Roadfood, here is the cream of the crop.
Amelie’s is the place to go whatever time you start; it’s open 24/7, and its true French pastries are unsurpassed. For a stylish breakfast, visit Zada Jane’s and be sure to try the sweet potato hash browns. Lupie’s is a locally-loved cafe known for superb southern-style vegetables (including everybody’s favorite vegetable, macaroni & cheese). Of the city’s several soul-food beacons, we like La’Wan’s best, mostly for its salt-and-pepper-crusted catfish. And no visit would be complete without a whole-hog barbecue feast at the legendary Bill Spoon’s.
