We've come to love NoDa as a hot spot for some of the best restaurants, craft breweries, cafes and hangouts. Just because it's trending, doesn't mean you have to shell out the big bucks. We've pulled together a list of the best deals in the area to keep you (and your wallet) happy! All you need is a crisp $10 bill (what up, Alexander Hamilton) to have a great time exploring this artsy neighborhood.
A coffee shop with an Asheville vibe, Trade and Lore offers a creative menu of coffee and tea beverages made with hand-crafted syrups.

The space has a cool, comfy vibe with decorative pillows, plenty of plants and colorful art—a place you'd definitely want to stay awhile.
A chill spot with a neighborhood hangout vibe, Free Range Brewing’s taproom features 14 ever-rotating beers all brewed in small-batches with local ingredients, which turns out one-of-a-kind creations. Stop in for a flavorful pint (it won't cost you more than $6!) and “let your taste buds roam.”

Saunter over to NoDa Company Store for affordable drinks served up in a comfy backyard setting (they even have porch swings!). Come for featured $2 drafts, wine by the bottle or their Make-Your-Own Mimosa Bar on the weekend. They also feature local art exhibitions and live music events.
Benny's is a special spot—there are not many pizza places where you can find a sizable slice. Get a 14" slice of cheese for only $4 or $5 with toppings. Great spot for a late night bite!
Local flair and eats under $5 are what make this small, roadside shop with a walk-up window a local treat. They have been serving chili and simple sandwiches for 40+ years. Enjoy an affordable snack and remember: cash only!
