A Foodie’s Guide to Charlottesville

With diverse crop of delicious eateries, Charlottesville is a destination that’s on the mind of foodies everywhere. But if you have just one day in the city, keep this guide – which covers breakfast, lunch, and dinner – on hand.

Breakfast at Bluegrass Grill & Bakery

This cozy cafe has been making Charlottesville’s best breakfasts from scratch since opening in 2001. In the mood to feast? Try The Freight Train, a belly-busting combination of bacon, ham, sausage, cheese, gravy, and two eggs. Vegans will flip for the plentiful options (like Gala’s Revenge and Cilantro Lime Tofu Hash) as well.

Lunch at Riverside Lunch

Located on Hazel Street, this no-frills, unassuming spot has been serving up the area’s best burgers since 1935. Whether you opt for a simple plain version, or one dressed with cheese, bacon, and grilled onions, it’ll be sure to satisfy. Make sure to pair your order with some crispy fries or onion rings. Even better? The prices are incredibly wallet-friendly.
