Pittsboro serves up culinary favorites certain to make first-time guests repeat visitors to the town. Whether you're looking for a quick bite, a sweet treat, or a sit-down meal, there's a cuisine to suit your hunger. The Phoenix Bakery on Hillsborough Street features decadent delights such as a banana swirl bun, jalapeño sausage square muffin, specialty cakes, cookies as well as gluten-free baked goods.
S&T's Soda Shoppe is an iconic Pittsboro favorite. The old-style décor complements the classic American menu - a long list of reasonably priced sandwiches, hot dogs, salads, and ice cream sundaes have made S&T's a crowd-pleaser for over twenty-years.
While visiting Pittsboro, we enjoyed a delicious lunch at the Pittsboro Road House & General Store. Located steps away from the Chatham County Court House, the former car dealership today houses one of Pittsboro's favorite spots for dining and entertainment. Traditional southern favorites made from fresh local ingredients are presented with a modern twist. The fried green tomatoes are out-of-this-world and the desserts are worth saving room for. In addition to superior food, Pittsboro Road House features a full schedule of live music. Pop in for Big Band Mondays or Acoustic Tuesday and Thursday or really cut loose on Friday and Saturday when the dance bands play.
