Fresh Strawberry Salsa

Headed down east? Or just looking for a fun day trip? Mosey on over to Goldsboro where you will find lots to do. While there, take time to stop by Ed’s Southern Food & Spirits (105 N. Center St., Goldsboro, 919-947-5143, for some “dressed-up grandma’s food,” so says area native and owner Ed Cogdell. Whether you enjoy his grandma’s crabcakes, or a cocktail with fresh juices, you’ll be sure to leave with a happy belly! Tucked into what once was Central Lunch (opened in 1905), you will find a quaint historic atmosphere and seasonal dishes featuring fare from local farmers and fishermen. Homemade desserts, like Pig Pick’n Cake, are a must, too!

—Wendy Perry
