You’re in town for The American Roots Festival – where should you eat all weekend?  While at the Festival itself, enjoy the “Taste of Raleigh Food & Brews Celebration” which will take place throughout the weekend on the Festival grounds honoring the city of Raleigh (and surround communities) by bringing music fans together with local food, beer & crafts vendors. More information will be available in the coming weeks.  

For breakfast before the Festival begins, or if you’re looking for a place to hang out after the curtain has fallen, look no further!  We have some of the best Raleigh has to offer below:


Another Broken Egg Cafe

When you start with the finest ingredients, the dishes that follow are fresh and creative. They describe them as delicious twists on classic dishes and new favorites worthy of foodie blogs and Instagram pics. This passion for distinctive flavors is what makes Another Broken Egg Cafe so unique. Since 1996, when our original Broken Egg Café opened in Old Mandeville, La., it’s been our passion to create exceptional dishes for breakfast, brunch, and lunch that are “craveably” delicious with an artisanal flair! Mon-Sun: 7:00 AM – 2:00 PM.

C Grace Bar

Although the location had previously housed several bars, Catrina set out to build an interior and environment unique to the space and to Raleigh. With the re-emergence of cocktail culture being embraced in many mid-sized cities around the U.S., a cocktail driven bar in the heart of Raleigh, NC seemed a logical next step for the establishment’s conceptual evolution. C. Grace evokes memories of classic jazz clubs where the lights are low, the jazz is hot, the drinks are strong and the nights, full of merriment. A beverage program centered around classic cocktails, and a style of service designed to create a welcoming and neighborly environment. The drink menu continues to change and grow and there is always a friendly face behind the bar. Tues-Sat 5PM-2AM, Sunday 8PM-2AM.
