CCSC's Miracle Auction was a success thanks to all of you!! Thank you so much for your participation, your bids and your donations. We are Grateful.

To date, we have received more than $5,000 in proceeds from the Student Menus and Silent Auction.

This is one of my favorite places to eat in Charlotte. The facility is clean, the staff is pleasant and attentive, and the food is great! The bakery items are well prepared, and I wish it was open on the weekends.

Visited last week for the first time. Met friends for lunch. Honestly the best croissant roll I’ve ever had anywhere in the US!!! The staff was fantastic, helpful and extremely nice. Going back tomorrow for a friends birthday lunch.

Best kept secret in Charlotte/Matthews area. Food is always delicious and the menu is diverse enough to appease even the pickiest of eaters in your group. The mission of the location is a great story as well. Give it a try. You won't be disappointed.
