Sure, you know the ins and outs of one of Charlotte’s most lively place to live, see, do and play. But fall brings new experiences in SouthEnd and the chance to dive into new things and head back to old stomping grounds. We asked our friends at Savvy + Co. Real Estate what they love about SouthEnd in the fall and they dished!
Everyone eats at Suffolk Punch
No matter the damage you’ve done to your body this summer, start treating it right with real, clean, nutritious food from Suffolk Punch. The menu features delicious options for all “free” members of your squad including filling food without soy, dairy and gluten. We say head over and catch the Panthers or any other game worth watching with friends.”Beautiful decor in an inviting space with an awesome atmosphere. Stop by the craft coffee counter, order the Kiwi Jalapeño Coffee Tonic, and get your caffeine fix with a refreshing kick,” says Julie Tambussi of Savvy + Co. Real Estate. Healthier living, a place for everyone and a huge outdoor patio to take in the cooler weather….we say bring on fall!
Warm up at Not Just Coffee
One of the great things about fall (in addition to the “how much pumpkin spice is too much?” debate) is cooler weather. Face it, anything in the Carolinas under 60 degrees is a little chilly and the perfect excuse to warm up. Head to Not Just Coffee where they take coffee making, presenting and sipping to the next level. The decor is cozy, the people are welcoming and everything they serve is going to make you smile.
Savvy + Co. Real Estate agent Sarah Martin is a HUGE fan. “I Love Not Just Coffee! I typically start off every workday at their new Atherton Mill location and have been known to stop in again in the afternoon for my second dose of caffeine. The level at which they prepare and serve the coffee is one of the best in Charlotte.”
Grab a pizza and beer (super fast) at Blaze Pizza
There’s a reason they call it Blaze Pizza. They make 11-inch pies in three minutes (that’s 180 seconds) so you spend less time being hungry and more time getting your chow on. Here you are the master of your pizza so throw on all the toppings you can dream of and make it your own. Add a local, fresh brew and we call that success. Plus with the quick thinking and baking from Blaze Pizza you can eat, ride the Rail Trail, take in a festival and be home before dark.
Find your new favorite pair of jeans at Blue Hem
Our friends at Blue Hem have a saying – “You can never own too much denim.” We couldn’t agree more. Fall is the season for Twiggy, Stilt, mid rise skinny, Icon ankle, Vixen boot cut, – or whatever your style of jean that fits you best. Luckily they carry all of the above in both men’s and women’s styles – so you are bound to find your new favorite fall outfit.
Try a ramen bowl at Futo Buta
If there is a chill in the air, it means soup is on. One of the best places in SouthEnd to slurp the night away is Futo Buta. If you’ve been putting off trying a flavorful bowl of broth mixed with goodies like pecan smoked pork belly, hot smoked salmon and more – jump on the Lynx, get off at Bland Street and find this gem. Once you are nice and warmed up, keep the adventure going and cool down with their constantly changing ice cream selection like sesame or green tea. “Futo Buta is a hidden gem along the light rail line. A challenge to find parking, but the pho totally makes it worth it,” says Savvy + Co. Real Estate agent Shannon Lynch.
