Queen City Lunch | Pike's in South End

We have been so busy the past month that even though our apartment is set up and starting to feel like home, I still feel like this transition will end and we'll go back to Minneapolis.

Over the weekend I found myself feeling a bit melancholy and really missing Minnesota a lot, but it's nice to remember that, even though we've only been here less than two months, we've still managed to find a couple of regular spots to go out and feel like we're taking advantage of our new neighborhood. It's going to take time. Burgers help.

Pike's Old Fashioned Soda Shop is a sweet little burger/ice cream stop just a quick walk from our apartment. I always get a burger without the bun from the "Burger Bar" section of the menu. The last time we went, my brother was with us and he got the Black & Blue Burger; and Rob got the Buffalo Chicken sandwich, which looked awesome. The fries are really good and they have a $5 glass of rosΓ© that I usually can't pass up.

As I'm going to hit "publish" on this post, I'm realizing that the two restaurant posts I've shared so far have been about burgers...I'm not sure if that says more about me or Charlotte, but I promise to branch out a bit here soon. Next up will be either my favorite brunch or happy hour spot!
