Eastgate Crossing Plaza, Chapel Hill, North Carolina NC

Description

Eastgate Crossing is a modern shopping plaza with flower pots and some nice stores and restaurants. The liveliest is Babalu (in photo above), a tapa, burger and taco place where you can enjoy a drink or meal at their colorful outdoor seating. What a pleasant spot! There are some games for kids outside on the cement, like bean bags to throw. 
A Trader Joe's and a Whole Foods (up the stairs behind Babalu) make this a handy spot for healthy groceries. 
For yummy baked goods and bread, check out Guglhupf Bake Shop. What a great name! We enjoy their poppy seed rolls, berliner pastries, brezel soft pretzel rolls, and best of all, their banana chocolate chip muffins. There is a little indoor and some outdoor seating with shade umbrellas and flower pots.
There is a Clean Juice Bar, Twisted Noodles (Thai food), Starbucks, Bruegger's Bagels, Chopt (counter-service salads), Zoe's Kitchen (Mediterranean), Chipotle, and The Loop Pizza Grill.
Go up the stairs behind Babalu and you'll find a Staples, Whole Foods, and Living Kitchen (vegan, waiter-service restaurant). Around the tall apartment building from Living Kitchen is Market Street Coffeehouse, Monterrey Mexican, Jersey Mike's Subs, and Red Lotus Chinese.
After, cross Franklin Street and go for a stroll on the shady one-mile Lower Booker Creek bike path.
