a sunday poppy: earl's grocery

charlotte, north carolina  

yesterday i met a girlfriend at earl's grocery - nestled in the heart of elizabeth- charlotte
{our old hood}
and i fell in love.
charlotte friends- think dean & deluca meets common market 
or dean & deluca with a little more soul. 
the atmosphere, food, drinks, and company were incredible. 
i will be back- and often. 
here are some of my favorite parts about the eclectic, fun, and elegant spot 
with quality yet unique food and drinks:
lots of packaged and fresh desserts- reasonably priced and delicous. 
i tried the mini german chocolate cake for .49 and loved- it melted in my mouth. 
my friend tried the peanut butter rice krispie treat, which was also amazing. 
love the orange and blue fun organizers throughout:
there are about 50 chairs and tables - along with a bar area
{such a cute scene to be part of}
we sat by the window; feeling the warmth of the january sun on us 
{it's been so beautiful here}
there are garage doors all along the wall- looking forward to some slightly warmer days with them open and the fresh air coming in... <3
enjoy some fresh pasta to-go and lots of great sauces 

i always enjoy going to common market and exploring the craft beers
mr. monaco and i will go together and enjoy a few
earl's offers the same type of atmosphere- excited to go exploring soon.

i tried the bahn mi sandwich and it was INCREDIBLE. 
so delicious- i def. recommend this sandwich!
lots of great wine to choose from:
i also enjoyed my one coffee of the week by ordering 
a pumpkin spice latte with coconut milk- to die for.
adore this chip filled tub:
follow them on insta for daily specials 

if you haven't been yet- go enjoy! 

...i have no doubt you will love your experience...

do you have a place similar in your city? 


  1. so cute and cozy! I'd much rather spend an afternoon at a place like this vs. some huge/loud and trendy spot.

    1. thank you! and me too.. any day! it's lovely… have a great weekend!

  2. Putting this on my Charlotte bucket list :)

    1. yes, do!! it's adorable! and the food is delicious! hope you're well
