Lincoln’s Haberdashery has been on my must visit eateries since news of it’s opening first popped up on my Instagram feed. The haberdashery and market is located in Charlotte’s Southend on the site of the original Lance Plant.
Diners can enjoy their meal in amongst the market offerings which include everything from ready to go meals, pancake mixes, honeys to treats for the pet children in your life. During our first visit it seemed that the signature espresso beverage dubbed the ‘Mary Todd’ was the drink of choice as the barista called out each order from the bar.
Since we always like to have a view while we eat, we chose the table that both a view of the baristas as they made one drink after the next, and a view of the kitchen which was a bustle of activity. I don’t know if it’s a foodie thing, or just simply curiosity, but I always enjoy a view of the kitchen in a restaurant when you can get one. There’s just something so exciting about seeing your food being made.
For our first trip, I went with the Darning Egg (shirred egg, Benton’s bacon, potato, chive, sea salt, with house toast.) I’d seen pictures of the darning egg before our visit and knew that this would be the first dish I had to try at Lincoln’s Haberdashery.
Mom tried out the Stuffed Flapjacks that are filled with lemon ricotta and topped with pure maple syrup and berries. If ever there was a time that I wish I didn’t have issues with dairy this would be one of them! I mean seriously, doesn’t it just look delicious?!
Before we left we headed back up to the counter to order some of the desserts we’d ‘drooled’ over after ordering our lunch. There are so many things to choose from whether you’re in the mood for a tart (apple or pear), a pavlova, and perhaps some plum pie. The desserts start at just under $3 so there’s no reason to feel guilty if you go home with a box full of sweet deliciousness.
So… if you’re looking for a place to grab a bite in Southend CLT, Lincoln’s Haberdashery should definitely be on your list.
