Charlotte is a vast metropolis, but luckily for residents and visitors, it’s defined by neighborhoods. Just a few blocks in any direction can put you into a totally different environment.
National Pancake Week (February 10 to 16) sends us on a hunt for Charlotte’s finest flapjacks. Our list includes gourmet, gluten-free, and family friendly pancake options around the city, including one spot where you can eat pancakes all night.
The hipster vibe is especially strong in the Plaza-Midwood neighborhood, where you’ll find cool nightspots, vegetarian-friendly restaurants, thrift stores, and the iconic Common Market.
