My relatives always take home a box when visiting from SC. These donuts are always fresh, and filled while you wait. Several different types of donuts with glazes or without.

Filament Coffee + Tea

A full service coffee shop located in the heart of historic downtown Mebane offering a variety of high quality, locally sourced coffee beverages, teas, konbucha and baked pastries.

Reviewed By NotRealHoosiers - Valparaiso, Indiana

I needed a caffeine jolt and stopped at this very inviting place with outdoor seating. HUGE selection of teas and coffees. You can get them doctored with flavors, but why ruin the great coffees available. Good size cups with free refils, too. This just plain hit the spot.

Blue Ribbon Diner

Reviewed By sgec1105 - Winterthur, Switzerland

We stopped here for lunch. The diner is really cute, a bit like stepping into the 50’s with Lavern and Shirley. The angus burgers were delicious, the fries were average. Prices were very reasonable. The service was friendly, efficient and attentive. The restaurant is a short drive from the Tanger outlet mall and a very good option for a meal if you are in the area.

Reviewed By Elaine V - Durham, North Carolina

Whenever anyone from our office has to make the trip from Chapel Hill to Greensboro, it is a mandate that they stop here and bring back the "goodies". We make them feel bad if they don't. Everything is awesome! The highlight of our Bosses' Day breakfast is always Distefano's. I know people who make the drive from Durham when they get a hankering.

Reviewed By K1004WEdebrab - Cary, United States

We watched as they served our food to another table, walked away and then when that table brought the plates back to the kitchen themselves, the server tried to deliver them directly to us... such a disappointing visit when all of our other visits have been beyond expectations!

Asian Harbor

Reviewed By Linda B - Greensboro, North Carolina

We decided to try this Asian restaurant with its variety of Asian styles available. The styles are Japanese, Thai, Vietnamese, etc. We started with the steak bulgogi wraps.....yum! I had the Tom Yum soup with shrimp. This was the spiciest version I have encountered but it was wildly addictive. My husband had the pineapple fried rice with shrimp, chicken and cashews. I had the Mongolian beef. Both were delicious. Portions are big. Service was excellent and we were checked on several times. Prices are reasonable. We will return.

Cracker Barrel

Reviewed By D2821ITroberts - Heathsville, Virginia

There is rarely a bad meal at any of the Cracker Barrel Restaurants. While extremely busy Homecoming weekend the service was top notch as was their food.
Opting for a mid day meal, we stopped in for lunch and enjoyed a verity of wonderful home cooked meals.
The chicken and dumplings are fantastic and with a side order of fried okra and salad I was stuffed!
This is a must stop when you are hungry for some down home cooking and relaxing without the blaring noise of TV’s and sporting events. I just wish they would tell many other Cracker Barrel’s how they make their biscuits as they are nirvana in perfection.
