This is a quick guide about your hood. While we love to encourage a good “night in,” we also want to help you explore the amazing community around you. Curated by our team, this guide is full of recommendations of the best spots to eat, drink and hang out around town.
Get out there! Be sure to use #mynicheisyourniche while you’re out and about! We love featuring and gifting goodies to our Niches. ;)
P.S. Locations marked with an asterisk are within walking distance!
Best. Hot dogs. Hands. Down. You may be thinking, “Really a hot dog?”, but no: they will change your life. Any hot dog, any way. JJ’s was also featured on Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives so that should say it all. It’s just that good.
For when you want healthy eats. Kid Cashew is a still chowing down type of restaurant. Good drinks help you enjoy that date night a little longer.
This is a “let me take a picture before I sip” kind of place. Anyway, you can’t have coffee without a sweet treat or a breakfast sandwich (or maybe both)!
1900 EAST BLVD, CHARLOTTE, NC 28203
The go-to spot for local festivals, when you need a good backdrop for family photos, to burn off some energy playing tennis, volleyball & soccer, or just to take a stroll on a nice day.
Food Truck Friday *
This is on the corner of East Blvd and Scott Ave. It only takes place during part of the year, so on the 2nd & 4th Fridays from April-September 6-10pm you can try the best food from all over Charlotte. Different food trucks are featured each week and you’re never disappointed.
Reservations are probably best when going out to dinner, but you can do this pretty easily online via OpenTable.
