Each Tuesday and Thursday, ride with Rising to surprise locations around our area

CHARLOTTE, N.C. —  Tired of the same old sights?  Ride ‘Round Town with Rising!  We’re taking you to surprise spots each Tuesday and Thursday.  Today’s stop: NoDa!

NoDa, short for North Davidson Street, the heart of the neighborhood, is Charlotte’s historic arts and entertainment district.  Home to an array of talented artists, musicians, local eateries, shopping and more.  Whether you are looking for craft beer, award-winning food, custom gifts, or tattoos, you’ll find what you need in NoDa.

Featured on today’s drive ‘Round Town:

Smelly Cat Coffeehouse and Roastery – Smelly Cat roasts their own coffee and craft in-season single origin roasts and blends.  In addition to coffee and tea, they also offer a breakfast menu featuring classic, made from scratch buttermilk biscuits, baked goods and snacks.  Plus a cocktail menu for hot and cold spirits and a cold brew tap list.

Amélie’s French Bakery – NoDa is home to Amélie’s flagship location that rarely ever closes.  They may shut down for seriously bad snow, but they’re open 24/7/365, even on holidays — so you can always satisfy your cravings.  They bakery has three locations in Charlotte and one in Rock Hill.
