Southern Village Restaurants, Chapel Hill, North Carolina NC

Description

Southern Village is a cute area in the southernmost part of Chapel Hill. It is a U-shaped road on a hill, lined with outdoor cafes with colorful flower boxes. You can see a Methodist church steeple and hear its chimes. There is a village green in the middle of the U, and some nights events are held here such as movies night or family games night. Some Wednesday nights there is live music on the patio outside La Vita Dolce, a gelato place that also serves wine.
Pazzo is a nice fast option if you'd like a slice of pizza. You can also order a whole pizza and sit outside on the patio or in the front of the restaurant, or get waiter service in the fancier area in the back of the restaurant. The pizza has a delicious crust and sauce.
Al's Burger is a popular option, also with a lovely outdoor patio in the front.
There is also a Weaver Street Market, a great health food store with a bakery, cute indoor seating area with huge windows, and pleasant patio in the front. Sometimes they offer live music. 
Other restaurants include Rasa Malaysia (food from Singapore), and Subway sandwiches.
It's lovely to walk around Southern Village at night, when the trees at the green are lit with tiny lights and the church steeple is lit up. There are always plenty of people enjoying the warm, soft air of the Carolina nights.
To get a little nature, walk west on Aberdeen Dr and you will come to a bike path. It leads south to Southern Community Park (a fifteen minute walk on the bike path or six minute walk along Sumac Rd) which has an amazing playground. You can also walk north, take the left fork to walk under Culbreth Rd in a pedestrian tunnel and then take Morgan Creek bike path to the right (to a pasture and pond) or to the left, ending at the Morgan Creek trailhead parking lot.
