SEPTEMBER 16-20, 2016 UCW 25 Best of Fayetteville Best Wine Shop The Wine Café 108 Hay Street 910.779.2766 or www.thewinecafeus.com The Wine Café is a wine shop and tasting room. The shop, owned and operated by Angie Malave, offers wines by the glass. And if a wine catches your fancy, it can be purchased by the bottle for special events or even for quiet dinner at home. Unlike many specialty stores, Malave isn't looking to sell outrageously priced bottles. She firmly believes that great wine should be available to enjoy every day; it doesn't have to be limited to special occasions. All wines in the store are hand-selected for quality and price, guaranteeing that every bottle is a great investment. In addition to fantastic wine, the Wine Café also provides a place for community building, hosting events like "Color Within the Wines" and live jazz during the summer. Often the best of friends are made over a glass of wine. Best Breakfast IHOP 1935 Skibo Rd. 9910.764.1721 IHOP, or the International House of Pancakes, opened in 1958. In 2015, 1,650 IHOP Restaurants were operating across the United States, well as a few other nations. Regardless of which IHOP you visit, every restaurant is a little slice of home. As the name might suggest the specialty is breakfast. Pancakes, omelets and the like are available at any time. But the menu also includes lunch and dinner items for taste buds young and old. Best Sunday Brunch Hilltop House Restaurant and Catering 1240 Fort Bragg Road 910.484.6699 or www.hilltophousenc.com The Hilltop House, located in historic Haymount, is one of the most beautiful historic buildings in the area. Originally built by two Scottish brothers, Augustus Hiram Kelly and Duncan Ray Kelly, in 1910, the home has been renovated but has kept the home's original character. In 1985, the house served as an antique shop before it was eventually remodeled into a restaurant. The Hilltop House serves cuisine that is in some ways as much a reflection of the building as it is a beautiful combination of classic and modern. Since 2006, Beth Shearin-Smith has been the executive chef and owner. Chef Matthew Graham has also been the executive chef for 11 years. The restaurant regularly offers lunch and dinner, which are exquisite but come with the downfall of having to choose a single entrée. To remedy this, the Hilltop House offers a Southern Lunch Buffet Tuesdays through Friday. If you enjoy the lunch buffet, you are going to love the Sunday Brunch. Sunday mornings/afternoons spent at The Hilltop House are a culinary delight. The staff pulls out all of the stops offering a sampling of a traditional Southern breakfast, a great lunch and desserts that are too sinful to eat on a Sunday. But don't let that stop you. You can also indulge in the age old Southern tradition of mimosas while you enjoy a meal that will leave you smiling for the entire day. One brunch visit will convince you that our readers know what they are talking about as you indulge in the best of the best on a Sunday morning.
