A day date to a Sleeping Beauty matinee show definitely need brunch or lunch, so head Uptown a few hours before the matinee performance to enjoy some of my favorite restaurants in Charlotte. Mimosa Grill, on the corner of Tryon Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd (seriously just across the street from the Knight Theater) has fabulous Saturday and Sunday Brunch options. On Saturdays, you can enjoy some of Mimosa Grill’s most popular dishes, like Pecan Crusted NC Mountain Trout or Chicken and Waffles, with an a la cart option (also, chicken and waffles paired with a Bloody Mary flight sounds incredible to me). On Sundays, Mimosa Grill offers a brunch buffet for $24.95 ($12.95 for kids) with endless options.

If you’re feeling more of a lunch than brunch situation and still want to stick close to the Knight Theater, I highly recommend Halcyon Flavors From the Earth, in the Mint Museum right next door to the Knight Theater. There, you can indulge in a lunch of local flavors, with their focus on seasonal, locally sourced ingredients.
If you’re like me and brunch beverages are your thing, head over to Draught in the Third Ward and opt for their mimosa bar. Your waiter will deliver a bottle of champagne to your table and then you get your pick of five different juice options and fruit fixings.
