I have gotten some adorable baby clothes for my son here. They are so unique -- things I have never seen anywhere else. They'll also wrap gifts in such an attractive and cute way. Love the name, too!
Main and Taylor has a great selection of high end shoes and a helpful staff. Having a very narrow foot, it can be difficult to find shoes that fit correctly but I have found several pairs at Main and Taylor. They can be pricey but they do have good sales.
The menu was spectacular at Bloomsbury and the food so good I wanted to lick my plate clean afterwards but the table next to me was so close I thought I might accidentally like the ear of a fellow customer. Seriously, the food was spectacular and the atmosphere was nice but the tables are a little too close for comfort.
This is my favorite Italian restaurant in Raleigh. I love the atmosphere and the food. The service is always good. I would be happy just eating a plate of the delicious focaccia they bring out before the meal. Salads are good, pasta is to die for and the specials are always a delight. Thumbs up!
I was thrilled when we got an Armadillo Grill in Raleigh after eating at the one in Carrboro when I lived in Chapel Hill. It's as yummy as ever and usually very crowded, particularly at lunch. The ingredients are fresh and flavorful and service is fast.
We redid our kitchen and browsed Cosmos to pick out the granite slab to use for our new counters. They had a unique and fabulous selection of beautiful granite.
I picked up some great jalapeno flavored peanuts here for my father, who loves spicy foods. The Peanut Roaster has quite a selection for the nut lover.
We used to visit the Vincent's on Capital frequently and were thrilled when it moved closer to our home. The owner/manager is super friendly, even once when one of my children was less than well-behaved. I have dreams about their garlic knots...seriously...and the pizza is delicious. They also have strombolis, paninis, subs, pasta, desserts, etc. I highly recommend Vincent's.
Cravings had some neat maternity items that you can't find in the typical chain maternity stores. Their items were pricier for something you'll only wear a couple months, but for that special occasion it could be worth it.
Tookie's is a great place to go find that unique toy you can't find at your basic toy chains. One great thing about Tookie's is that they gift wrap, too, so if you need to pick up a birthday gift quickly they are the place to go.
