SPONSOR NEWS!

Spring has sprung at The Root Cellar! Nearly everything on the menu at their new Pittsboro location is scratch-made in house, using seasonal ingredients from local North Carolina farmers and producers. The result? A quality that can’t be beat. So pull up a chair on their outdoor patio to taste the difference for yourself! Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner in Penguin Place at 35 Suttles Road.
