Tate Street Coffee grinds and brews only the noblest of beans, the fair-trade coffees of Larry's Beans, and serves up classic coffeehouse fare including sandwiches, baked treats, and specialty beverages. If you opt for the $5 deal, pop in any time and grab a steamy mug of fresh-brewed bean juice ($1.35) with a bagel and cream cheese ($2), one of the day's selected muffin flavors ($2), or a glass of locally brewed beer ($2.95). The 334, Tate Street's popular ciabatta sandwich piled with turkey, ham, pepper jack, and baby spinach with a sweet Vidalia onion spread, is served with salsa and chips ($4.95).
West End Station’s long list of menu items complements classic pub appetizers with quesadillas, melts, handtossed specialty pizzas, and chicken wraps. Diners can spice up traditional wings ($5.50 for eight) with one of nine sauce varieties, including Baltimore harbor, sweet honey mustard, garlic, and hot Jamaican jerk. Fingers that are usually relegated to handling steering wheels, stamp adhesive, and ice-cold forks can delight in diving for hot jalapeño poppers ($3.75) or a tray of tater tots ($2.50).

Reviewers rave about the dinner menu at the restaurant, though breakfast and lunch are also served.
Global Restaurant's Chef Bernard grew up along the sun-soaked shores of the southern French village of Nice, where his grandfather was a pastry chef and his father owned a fish shop. This rich familial and Francophilic culinary heritage inspired him to take chef apprenticeships in Paris, the United Kingdom, Russia, and upon globe-roving cruise ships. His travels infused an eclectic edge into his cooking, which still incorporates traditional meals, fusion concepts,
and a French spirit. His journeys also yielded him more than recipes — during one of his cruises, he met his wife, Shannon, whose experience with the front end of the food-and-beverage industry led the pair to open their own restaurant in Charlotte.
Inside the duo's creation, Global Restaurant, electric blues and oranges brighten the space, and crisp tablecloths lay a canvas for dishes with inventive flavors and artistic presentations. Chef Bernard's specialties include cauliflower-goat-cheese sauce, boldly splashed across a seared sea bass, and date chutney and caramelized apples that dance across an all-natural duck.
The menu, which is in many ways a travelogue of Bernard and Shannon's journeys, has snagged the attention of the Charlotte Observer and of WCNC's Charlotte Today, which invited Bernard on air for a live cooking demo, where he seared some of his famous diver scallops atop the weatherman's greenscreen.

The bar's sweet treats, which earned it Charlotte's best location for To Die For Desserts in 2012 by Elevate Lifestyle Magazine, include carrot and walnut cupcakes and chocolate fondue with seasonal fruits and marshmallows.
