Hip coffee house with breakfast and juice
Order coffee and a smoothie to go or sit down for breakfast and a bloody mary. This hip market and cafe sells beer, wine, produce, and prepared foods in addition to the healthy, hot foods they serve. If you get hungry while you are perusing art, they also have a location at the Gibbes Museum. Stop by their sister restaurant, Butcher & Bee, and their food hall, Warehouse, if you are in NoMo.

The Park Cafe
Neighborhood cafe for breakfast and lunch
This bright cafe serves breakfast and lunch during the week and brunch on the weekends. No matter what menu you are ordering from, the delicious, healthy options are all delicious. Their coffee drinks are very good and their gin and juice pairs well with brunch.
The Park Cafe
Fried chicken, oysters and frozen drinks
Housed in a beautifully restored auto-body shop, this local favorite serves up seafood and southern staples. More specifically, their fried chicken and oysters draw in the crowds. And while those crowds will most likely mean a bit of a wait because they don't take reservations, order a frozen gin and tonic for an enjoyable wait. Once your done your meal, cap everything off with some soft-serve ice cream. If you like it here, try Melfi's and Little Jack's which are run by the same people who run Leon's.
Graft Wine Shop
Hip, casual wine bar and shop
This laid-back wine bar with great music is a perfect place to hang out at the bar with a glass of wine or make a quick stop in to take a bottle home. Either way, the helpful staff will point you towards something you will love. Come through for their Good Neighbor Sunday when they host a pop-ups and a local makers or stop by on Thursdays for their free wine tasting from 5-7.
Minor league baseball and a great time
With cheap tickets, food, and beer, it is no wonder that locals love going to RiverDogs games. And while the games are always a good time, they are especially fun on Thirsty Thursdays when beers are only a dollar. Keep an eye out for Bill Murray, a co-owner of the team who loves to go to the games.
Rustic, chic locals spot
Great for brunch as well as dinner, this aptly named cozy cabin grows some of their herbs and greens on it's roof and sources their meats locally. In addition to deals on drinks during their happy hour (Tuesday thru Friday 4:00 to 7:00), their burger is half off.
