When you approach Salud’s mural-covered NoDa building, you get to pick from three doors. In the middle is the one you want, and it reads: BREWERY COFFEE PIZZA ART SALUD. Once you go up the staircase, you’ll find yourself in a spacious taproom that feels like a secret, grown-up clubhouse. And it’s a true community hangout in Charlotte that’s great for literally any time of the day. If you’re there in the morning, get a coffee and the breakfast crunchwrap with sausage, scrambled eggs, melted cheddar, crema, a crispy corn tortilla, homemade cheez whiz, and pico de gallo, all wrapped in a griddled flour tortilla blanket. The vibe is fun enough you’ll probably want to stick around, grab a pint and a Latin Lingo pizza, and play some old-school Nintendo games or post up with your laptop.
