Eat & Drink


Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, Eddie’s Place, has been a staple in the Charlotte community since 1997. The casual Cotswold diner is famous for its all-day breakfast, and its She Crab soup. Whatever your appetite, you’ll find something fresh and healthy at Mezeh Mediterranean Grill. Choose from flatbread wraps to Mediterranean bowls with items like falafel, chicken kebab, spicy hummus, chickpea salad, and caramelized eggplant. For dinner, sip on a margarita and enjoy Tex-Mex favorites like steak nachos and “Platos Tradicionales,” puffy tacos topped with cheese and shredded lettuce, at Superica in Strawberry Hill.



If you’re in the mood to shop until you drop, you’re in luck. Cotswold has its own shopping mall, Cotswold Village, which features major retailers like Ulta, a cosmetics and beauty store, Marshalls, an American department store, and World Market, a specialty retail company offering furniture and home decor.
