There is also Kai's Kookies and More which has some of the best cakes, cupcakes and cookies in Charlotte. Not bad for a homegrown bakery.
Thanks for including NoDa Brewing's Woody and Wilcox IPA! I might also mention that brewery's Hope Stout, which was brewed in honor of a local girl that -- through her giving spirit and battle with cancer -- built a celebrity that continues to this day.
Dont go there they are rude
Really are you kidding me? Food was ok the staff was horrible.
They have kimchi at Harris Teeter in the salad section near tofu.. Surprisingly good. Cho won is my fave but so damn expensive! Can't wait to try out the others you all have mentioned.. China Wing on Arrowood is not that good and pretty pricy too. Their Kalbi marinade tastes just like bulgogi. Cho Wons Kalbi is delicious!
YES! this is what bread should be about and keeping bread flavors with the kitchen and not some far away industrial bakery! Thank you! Thank You!

Try Yogurt 101, it's the best I've found in Charlotte!
Boquete Mountain Coffee at Mama's Coffee House is Amazing!
Monk's Groovy Beans at the Atherton Market is up and coming. They also offer pour over, and just recently started offering espresso drinks.
I love the name they went with- Garden of Veg*n is genius!
Also, I want vegan caramel apple cinnamon rolls. Congrats on the new space!
Jake's so so Eats and Horrible Service - MUST READ!!!
Went to Jake's tonight for the first time with a friend and our combined 3 kids. As we walked in there was an old lady chewing on a frog leg covered with mushroom sauce setting right at the register counter as you walk in the door. Not an appetizing sight. We tried to make small talk, but her and the other old lady “working” there were about as friendly as couple of rocks. The waitress wasn't much better. She was very slow except when she came to the table, then she couldn’t run away fast enough after quickly pouring drinks and rushing away before we could even ask for forks or napkins to go with our complimentary, homemade, stale, rock hard, Ellie May Clampett biscuits. Every time we asked for anything like ketchup it was 5 minutes minimum and it wasn’t even busy. (What kind of cheap place doesn't put ketchup on the table?!) When she did bring it she practically slung it onto the table and not even near the person that asked for it.
We finally finished our mostly average meal and she gives us the check she says “we have a policy of an automatic 20 percent gratuity on checks of 5 or more.” Which brought our check to 57 dollars. That really chapped my a$$, especially since she was so insistent on knowing if we were all together when we first sat down and never mentioned the “ 20% Policy” at that point. Mandatory TWENTY #!@#*!* percent tip for crappy service! I guess they think because they have been on a cable TV show they can over charge you for lousy service and so so food.
Here's the killer though. As we were in the car pulling out, the old frog leg eating woman comes out of the side door waving a our ticket and our cash saying, " You didn't pay enough maybe you dropped some money." (Yeah on that BS automatic tip) Do you know how much we were short that she had to chase us down thru the gravel parking lot? ONE *&^#*!$ DOLLAR!! I say again ….A DOLLAR!! We stuffed TWO DOLLARS in her grubby little frog-greased hand and drove away never to return to this unfriendly, over priced, mediocre hamburger joint.
Denny's on a bad day beats this place and I hate Denny's.
Ah, ok. It was titled Southern Cake Queen in the article & since there's a truck by that name, I thought they were affiliated with the Pink & Chocolate Bakery somehow. My mistake. :)
Thanks for your comment. I didn't include Southern Cake Queen's cupcakes at all in the list, as they use ingredients I would not recommend. I mentioned the two kinds of vegan cupcakes they carry and offer in their truck by "Pink & Chocolate."
For clarification - I came up with a "C" grade for cupcake delirium because they still use artificial colors in the frosting and don't use organic ingredients.
Both the Roots Farm Food dessert and Pink & Chocolate cupcake use organic ingredients. Pink & Chocolate cupcake actually color their cupcakes with beet juice. I judge health on the quality of ingredients first and foremost and when I compared Cupcake Delirium to the others, it dropped the grade down.
Here's just one source of information why I feel so strongly about eliminating artificial colors. http://www.cspinet.org/new/201006291.html
Good Luck Goat!
Wow, I'm glad Vani said she was basing this mostly on environmental friendliness because I would wonder about the tastebuds and/or the crack-smoking tendencies of anyone who prefers Southern Cake Queen's cupcakes over Cupcake Delirium's.
Don't see any Indian or Chinese Restos who offer a lot of veggie entrees as well
just to echo the previous comment, I stopped by tonight to see if I could order for take-out. The hostess said no, not right now, but maybe in 15 minutes? And then she gave me their card a paper menu. And like the previous commenter, I left!
stopped in to eat at the new location. Was greated and asked if our family of four had a reservation. Five empty tables and.was told they were too busy to take walkins. We walked out never to return. Bad business policy on Carlos's part. Ever heard of a waiting list? Bienvenidos A Tega Cay. Adios
Amazing concept and exactly the type of gourmet Charlotte needs! Swing in and sample some of Sophie's flava combinations - with nine other than Dukes bad! My wife and I have forgone the wine as a dinner party gift the past two outings we've gone two and instead brought small bottles of hese concoctions - huge hit both times. Creative, yet thoughtful and always a conversation starter.
The website just went up: www.pouroliveoil.com
Growler's veganator is a joke. I hate to disparage any place offering vegan options but it's the sausage in a bun with some lightly sauteed peppers and onions. Zero percent creativity and it's dry as hell.
So many other options abound, it's really not that difficult being a vegan and eating out here in Charlotte.
