As graduation quickly approaches, friends and family of graduates will be celebrating in the area. Magnolia Avenue offers great restaurant options for those families to gather with graduates.
Brewed is a coffeehouse that offers an exceptional brunch and a fun atmosphere. It’s a great choice for Saturday or Sunday brunch with the family. Brewed accepts reservations.
“Brewed has amazing lattes,” said Alex Cheetwood, a senior fashion merchandising major. “The interior has just such fun vibes. It’s very artsy. I’m excited to bring my family to brunch there on Sunday.”
Another fun restaurant located right around the corner from Brewed is Live Oak Music Hall & Lounge.
It will offer live music on Friday, Saturday and Sunday night of graduation weekend.
Free shows start at 6 p.m. on the rooftop, but guests will have to pay for the next artist who begins at 8 p.m.. Live Oak also has a full bar and a great local beer selection.
“My relatives are coming down and Live Oak is a perfect place for drinks before going out to dinner,” said Taylor Reisdorf, a senior Spanish and strategic communication double major.
Cane Rosso is located right next to Brewed and offers true Neapolitan pizza.
The small restaurant creates an intimate setting and would be a great dinner spot for the whole family. Cane Rosso’s pizzas are cooked in a wood-fired oven at 900 degrees and are ready in just 90 seconds.
Other restaurants located on “Restaurant Row” include Lili’s Bistro, Shinjuku Station, Nonna Tata, Ellerbe Fine Foods, Cat City Grill and Magnolia Cheese Company.
