Food Scene
Easily walkable. A great spot if you just got in town and don't want to get involved with a lot of travel and parking. Good drinks, nice space, and usually humming. The food is pretty good too.

Great coffee shop. Pastries are generally fresh and rotating. The coffee is excellent. I also go here at night for beer and wine. You won't be disappointed.

Not easy to spot. Look for Pendulum. It's behind Chipotle. If you like ramen, and want it done well, this is the best place in Hampton Roads. As far as I know, it's Thursday through Monday.

Very casual take out place with tables. Their Shawarma pita with the works and some felafel on the side is a thing of beauty. So good! Really.

Gets crowded at peak times. Amazing fish dishes...also, very good hamburger dish. Not a fancy location, but food is well executed.

Not open for dinner. This place is busy most times. If you like sweet potato biscuits and don't mind minimal indoor seating, this is your place.

Excellent bread, croissants, and ...PIZZA. In these 3 categories, this place is so so good. I like a simple breakfast here. I also like sitting on the picnic benches and eating pizza for lunch.

Sightseeing
Walk along the waterfront for great views. Good spot to take a bike also. I do believe you can get on the Wisconsin without a fee, although that's not obvious when you approach the ticket desk.
