Angela's Local Loves:
The Orange Spot is our neighborhood favorite. It's the perfect bike ride in the morning and their new space located on Virginia Ave has plenty of room to enjoy a cup of joe with a toddler in tow.
Hands down, The Junction has some of the best brunch in town. It's casual, fresh, and coffee is available while you wait for a table. Order the Mexican Hash, you can thank me later.
Celadon Flea is my current home decor go-to spot. Check it out on the last Sunday of the month.
The Hurd Regional Library in West Ashley is our current favorite hangout on Wednesday mornings. My one-year-old loves story time, the drum circles, and the baby room off of the Children's section. There is plenty to keep kids of all ages intrigued at this library location.
The Cod Father is moving to Park Circle and I can't wait! I love everything they serve and they are fast. The fish and chips are obviously what you go for, but the mushy peas and pies are equally delicious.
Grocery/ Farm Fresh-
Check out the N. Charleston Farmers Market on Thursday's in Park Circle. We live in what is affectionately referred to as the "grocery store desert" so I hit up the Farmers Market as often as possible.
We've really enjoyed exploring Riverfront Park this summer. It has a nice long loop for stroller pushing and a splash pad for the kiddos to cool down.
Emily's Local Loves:
Collective Coffee is my favorite spot to throw my headphones in and chug out the work while enjoying their speciality brews.
Red Drum has a vibrant atmosphere with excellent service. Gets packed pretty quickly, so get there when they open or make a reservation.
Abide A While is where I go to get lost these days. My house plant game is benefitting from it. They also offer expert advice on the plants they sell, which has helped my not so green thumb.
Poe Library on Sullivan's Island is tucked away in an old bunker. Easy parking and fun to stop in while the Farmer's Market is taking place.
Five Loaves Cafe is always a good option, with their half sandwich/ salad/ soup options, there's something for everyone. Affordable and delicious.
Grocery/ Farm Fresh-
The Mt. Pleasant Farmer's Market is my son's favorite people watching spot, and rightly so. It's at full capacity most every Tuesday with many options for veggies, meat, locally made goods, and kettle corn.
Palmetto Island has lots to explore, with their walking paths, kayak dock, and playground options.
