Trophy Brewing Company - Raleigh, NC

Trophy Brewing Company - Raleigh, NC

What Trophy Brewing lacks in size, it more then recoups in quality.


Trophy Brewing Company and Pizza have capitalized on an under served part of Raleigh and brought a great establishment seemingly out of thin air. That venue is now one of our favorite Raleigh places.

If you're new to NC BBQ we suggest swinging through The Pit - Raleigh based bbq powerhouse.


It begins with the local legend Pitmaster, Ed Mitchell. The king of southern cooking proudly serves classic whole-hog, pit-cooked barbecue with the best sides you've ever placed on a fork. Visit downtown Raleigh's Warehouse District and have a taste of the best culinary offerings of the City of Oaks.

Pie Bird - Raleigh, NC

Pie Bird - Raleigh, NC

A frustratingly good idea named Pie Bird sets it's roots into Raleigh's historic Oakwood district.


I paid my first visit to Pie Bird almost 2 months after their opening. Although they reside within a football throw of my doorstep, time simply hadn't allowed a visit. When the folks stopped into town last week I realized it was a perfect chance to check the place out, I was certainly not disappointed.

The Cupcake Shoppe - Raleigh, NC

The Cupcake Shoppe - Raleigh, NC

The Cupcake Shoppe is proof that buttercream should be listed as one of the deadly sins.


Sara Coleman (owner of The Cupcake Shoppe), owns what used to be a nondescript bakery just off of Glenwood Avenue. With the exception of the art store right next door, it was a part of the road we rarely visit. After hearing a few good things we decided to make a stop and I have to say, I'm glad we did.

It was way back in 1937 that Krispy Kreme opened their first store in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. The company’s national success and quick rise to popularity are partially due to Vernon Rudolph (its owner) and partially due to butter soft doughnuts they produce.
