We are doing a quick revisit this week for some colleges for our senior daughter. Last year when we visited Charlotte we ate at Zada Jane's, Amelie's bakery, and the penquin.(Based on reviews of new ownership we will not return to the penquin) Loved them all so we are again looking for local spots that are fun without being over the top price point for this trip.
Also we have never visited Charleston, but are considering The gin joint, Five loafs, Glass onion, or Queen street grocery.
We do have a car so driving is not a problem, but we don't want to drive to far. staying in the Southpark area in Charlotte, and in the historic district in Charleston
Thanks in advance for any help.
