I love the Triangle and will be staying there a couple nights with my family before heading to the coast for a beach vacation in Emerald Isle. Typically we stay in Raleigh or Durham but this year the hotel we booked is near the airport, technically in Morrisville. Am wondering if there is any good food out that way. I will certainly drive for some of my favorites (like Guglehuphfs) regardless, but would love to find some spots nearby.
I love all kinds of food and will need to peel my extended family away from the convenience and predictability of chains. Love Indian (have heard there is good indian around), Mexican, bbq, thai - honestly anything good. However, only places that would be OK for a toddler or take-out. Also need some good coffee out that way. Doesn't even seem to be a Caribou in the vicinity. And good breakfast - otherwise my father will want to drive through Hardees.
Also are any of the Locopops in that area? Really want to get there this time around.
Also need to stock up on good wine, cheese etc before heading to the beach. Usually we go to Whole Foods but is there something closer that may fit the bill? Or does anyone know if there is a whole foods out near the big farmer's market (we always stop there on the way out for yummy produce to take with)?
Thanks much - you all have steered me towards great places in the past (Neomonde, Guglhuphfs etc etc) - look forward to trying some more this trip.
