Eight + Sand Kitchen
Great place for breakfast/brunch. It was not busy when we came on a Saturday morning at 8:30. They are in the heart of South End on the light rail. For first timers, you grab a table on your own, grab a menu at the front, then order at the counter when ready. They'll bring out the food. Lots of seating inside and out with some shade covers. Dogs are allowed on the patio and I saw at least one with a dog bowl with water provided. We got salmon lox toast, avocado toast, and a grilled chicken avocado melt. The food was tasty but a bit on the salty side. I would have liked a bit more avocado. Ask for water when you order to get a carafe with cups. Loved the decor - very clean, open, and relaxing. I saw that they have a craft cocktail menu which seems promising.
Eight + Sand Kitchen was a nice little caf experience with a bar. The food was delectable. Good position sizes for the price. However, the service to order food and beverages was a bit slow with only one register. The line constantly reached the door or was wrapped around. You have to order prior to sitting down but once ordered food and drinks come quickly. I love that they do offer several vegan and vegetarian items. The craft containers make it extremely hard to pour your drink without spilling it everywhere. If you're in the area; check this place out.
Came in for breakfast. Had egg + arugula sandwich, it was good with a little bit of spice, potatoes were crispy and tasty but were too big, probably would work better if they are cut into smaller pieces. The regular croissant is probably one of the best ones I have tried in Charlotte, but the twice baked croissant not so much. On the bad side, the tables were sticky and I had to clean mine myself. Be ready to wait for your drinks because they take longer than the food.
This place is ALWAYS slammed on the weekends. And its easy to know why. The sandwich i had was so good and flavorful and everyone i went with also loved their food. Cappuccinos are spot on! Will return!
Came for breakfast and really enjoyed the croissant sandwich. Girlfriend got the green goddess avocado toast and rated 7.5/10. Crispy potatoes were a nice side. Didnt get cocktails but going to try next time!
