I'm flying into Charlotte for a race this weekend and will be by myself. I'm staying in SouthPark, but would have a car and would like to explore the city some. As I'm coming from Alabama, I'm not too interested in Barbecue, but anything else I'm game for. I'm particulatly interested in: Good Italian; an early morning breakfast place open Sundays; and anything else that is a "local" and good. I'm not too interested in fine or trendy dining--rather, just straight up good food I couldn't get in Tuscaloosa too easily.
PS: Also interested in good bakeries and/or coffee places as well.
