Coffee/Beer/Wine Shops
Want to grab a coffee in the morning or beer/wine in the afternoon? We've got you. There are so many options within a mile of the house!
Great local coffee shop with a small menu of toast, muffins, cake. If you visit in the afternoon/evening, you might catch some live music on the patio or upstairs. They also have beer and wine options. They have wifi and the patio is perfect when the weather is nice.

Coffee, beer, or wine. Whatever your beverage need, they'll usually have something you'll love. Great spot in downtown Cornelius. They have live music at least five nights a week. Trivia on Tuesdays. Food trucks are usually on site for the weekends.

This has become a new favorite. Having just opened at the end of 2018, they stock a great variety of beer in cans, on tap, and wine.

Ok, this isn't just beer and wine but is actually a bourbon bar. They have other liquor items here but are well stocked with bourbon/whiskey options. They have an extensive wine list and prosecco on tap. It is a tiny spot but great before or after dinner. They have live music on the weekends.

Some of our favorite spots that we frequent often...
We love Carrburritos no-fuss, super casual setting. There isn't table service, you order in the line. You can skip the line and head to the bar, if you prefer to order there. Grab a classic or fancy margarita and make sure to get chips and salsa! They have a variety of salsas to choose from and you must try the fruitas salsa. Our favorites lately has been the tostada with shrimp or chorizo and the baja shrimp tacos. Enjoy!

I most highly recommend Kindred for lunch! Get the shrimp roll or the crispy chicken salad. They have great cocktails too. If you are looking for a nicer dinner, it is one of the top restaurants in the country by Boun Appetite. Make reservations if you can. Sometimes you can walk in, but not often.

Fresh is the name of the game here. They don't have a freezer. Great fish, great steak, great salads. We like to get the double dip appetizer, share an entree (unless we want leftovers), and then splurge on the key lime pie. Side note: their fries and kale side salad are fantastic

Our favorite spot is at the end of the street! Walk there...
WALK THERE! They have outdoor seating. Old school ice cream shop. We love sharing a chocolate milkshake. Second favorite is a sugar cone with lemon ice cream (it is like lemon cookies not lemon sorbet). Hits the spot on a hot day...or a Tuesday :)

Work inside or outside. Free wifi. Downstairs can get distracting but can also be a great environment to work and not feel secluded. The upstairs can get loud but is less distracting. Outside is always a great option if the weather is nice.
