“Farm Fresh, Locally Sourced.”
In North Carolina’s culinary world, diners and restaurants alike pride themselves on local eating. Somehow, the closer to home the food is grown, the better it tastes. At the Pickle Jar Cafe in Pittsboro, that statement could not be truer. In supporting local farmers and sustainability, their impact in the community runs much deeper than delicious meals.
As their chef, Mario Robledo says, “We strongly believe in supporting our local farmers, shopping small and overall sustainability.”
24 rotating draft beers, 400 bottled and canned beers, fill or buy a growler – it’s all available at House of Hops!

What goes best with a cool, summer drink? Outdoor music! House of Hops welcomes Sounds of Summer to their patio along with a multitude of North Carolina performers.
