Restaurants & Food


“I would like to nominate Great Harvest as the BEST bakery in Greensboro!!  Even though there are a lot of great bakeries around Maxie B’s, Cheescake by Alex and so on, this one is exceptional.  Great for parents!  The whole wheat flour gets milled daily and the bread is baked from scratch every morning.  You can’t find that anywhere else.  Plus they use simple ingredients, no High Fructose Corn Syrup.  The best bread (Honey Whole Wheat) only has five ingredients 🙂  That is what got my husband and I hooked.  We eat natural foods, now it is even more convenient with Whole Foods right next store!  Of course for the occasional sweet tooth, they have yummy sweets.” – Holly V.

Kids Eat Free

“Making ends meet while having a family can be a challenge. With the current state of our economy and the cost of gas, we find ourselves having to pinch a little harder. Luckily, more and more restaurants are now offering Kid’s Nights with reduced or free meals for the kids. The trick is learning about these mostly unadvertised specials. MyKidsEatFree” – Barry Y.
