Start with the classics. The Diamond Restaurant has been serving double-decker burgers and hot dogs since 1945, and Zada Jane’s Corner Café provides that same comfort food approach to breakfast. Also mixed in with the neighborhood’s eclectic restaurant scene are Irish classics at The Workman’s Friend and finger-licking barbecue at Midwood Smokehouse.
When the sun goes down, Charlotteans come out to play in Plaza Midwood. Plan a bar crawl that begins with burgers and craft beer at Moo & Brew and continues with stops at the neighborhood’s four breweries—Legion Brewing, order a Juicy Jay; Resident Culture Brewing, where hazy IPAs meet coolship sours; Southern Strain Brewing and Pilot Brewing. Wrap up the night playing cornhole or ping pong at Thomas Street Tavern.
