Southern Kitchen's Chef Sokun crafts traditional European dishes with delicate Asian twists, employing fresh local ingredients. Thursdays–Saturdays the dinner menu plates up appetite appeasers such as the warm-goat-cheese-and-spinach salad, featuring a french baguette atop a swath of spinach, caramelized onions, pine nuts, cranberries, and goat-cheese crumbles, all drizzled in balsamic vinaigrette ($12).
The baristas at The Village Coffee House & Bakery source their beans from area roasters, supporting Fayetteville's economy while also ensuring that each cup of java has a rich, fresh taste. They also serve up shakes, smoothies, teas from Republic of Tea, and Italian sodas, which pair well with daily-baked pastries, including danishes, scones, and muffins. But perhaps the star of the bakery is their intricately decorated cakes. The bakers create custom-designed masterpieces for birthdays—which might feature the child's favorite cartoon character or professional chess player—weddings, and other special events.
Customers won't find any heat lamps within The Wing Co.'s kitchen, but that doesn't mean their made-to-order wings aren't hot. Instead, the increased temperatures come from nine sauces, which run the gamut from sweet chili to Cajun to teriyaki. However, the cooks aren’t content to just spread sauce on wings. Upon customer request, they can also splash the tasty liquids over salads, riblets, and sandwiches—including their signature wing burger.
Matching the wings’ heat is the dining room's firefighter-themed decor. Hardhats and helmets double as lampshades, while firefighter boots, tanks, and clothing hang from the walls, in case of an emergency costume party.

Décor can say a lot about the type of food a restaurant serves. How does your décor inform or reflect your culinary practice?
Warm yet well-lit. Burlap bags hang from the ceiling and the wall. Posters describing the history of coffee and funky art hang on the walls. You can sit in a bar-style chair or relax in a comfortable couch.
In your own words, how would you describe your menu?
Full of variety. If you are looking for a hot beverage you can choose from one of our more popular flavored lattes or a more traditional cup of coffee, cappuccino or tea. If you desire something cold then check out our real-fruit smoothies or enjoy a delicious frappe or iced coffee. Kids can enjoy a kids-size smoothie or a flavorful steamer. We also offer a small menu of baked goods to enjoy with your beverage.
