From birthday parties to weddings, it’s nearly impossible to spend a Friday or Saturday evening inside during the summer — even if that means sacrificing early morning activities the next day.

Charlotte welcomed Denver-based Snooze eatery with open arms in anticipation of a space that serves breakfast items from open to close. This concept has long been popular in the Queen City, proven by an additional 27 restaurants that offer late breakfast and brunch selections on their menus.

Gone are the days where you’ll need to sacrifice a stack of hot cakes for a late night out. These spots let you have your (pan)cake, and eat it, too.
