Awesome little place for lunch or dinner well known by locals. Food is simple but well prepared and oh so tasty. It is one of my favorite places to go. If you haven't tried Serbian dishes, you must drop in for a meal. Prices are also very reasonable. Very limited seating, so might be best to order take-out or delivery. Within walking distance.

If you like South American savory pastries, sweet pastries, great coffee, or more importantly, Nutella, you must come here. They make a Nutella latte that will make you think you are dreaming. Then if you think things cannot get any better, they let you like the spoon they made your latte with. Perfect for breakfast, lunch, light snacks, but even better for first dates. Not within walking distance. Take Metro to King Street and walk or drive. Parking is on street and not very easy to find.

This is the place to be if you like authentic Vietnamese food. They often can adjust their ingredients if you have any allergies. They have a spacious dining area, but you can also get delivery or take-out. Within walking distance, but a bit of a hike.

Drinks & Nightlife

Local brewery with an ever-changing selection of ales, lagers, stouts, porters, and other tasty brews. Get yourself a flight and try six. Sometimes they have live music. They don't serve food, but you may bring in your own food or have food delivered there as well. A food truck is often on site, and they are usually very good too. Perfect spot for an inexpensive drink or few. Family friendly. Not within walking distance, best to drive or take an Uber.

Opened within the last year, this place is very popular, as it should be; they are amazing brewers. Try six different brews with a flight. You will not be disappointed. They do not serve food, but there is usually a food truck outside. Family friendly. Not withing walking distance. Drive or take an Uber, but well worth the trip for these brews.

I have a really hard time choosing a favorite local brewery or frothy brew, but this is in my top 10. Get a flight and try a few. They don't serve food, but do have light snacks and there is usually a food truck outside. You can have food delivered there. Well worth the trip.

Entertainment & Activities

Easy to get to from here. You can either walk, take the metro, or have someone swing you around and throw you. It's not far and it's surrounded by a number of chain restaurants. Good for a night out and you don't want to do anything touristy.
