The local Wake Forest Dunkin’ Donuts is a hidden gem. Tucked away in a Shell gas station at 1009 Durham Road, you’ll find the tasty treats and coffee through a side entrance or by using the drive-thru. The staff is always friendly, the management will chat you up, and the service is always stellar and comes with a smile. In …

Nuts, Knuckles, and More at the Wake Forest Farmers Market

We have a confession. Until last weekend we’ve never taken the time to visit the Wake Forest Farmers Market. That was clearly a mistake. It is freaking awesome. The part that will blow you away is how amazingly nice all the vendors are. They love to talk about the quality of their products and they should be proud of the …

Okay, maybe just the bumper sticker you can buy at NC General Stores in Wake Forest. We think it would keep people from tailgating. Bonus! And …

Seriously, you will get crabs if you come to Wake Forest. Backfins Crab House is a local establishment with a loyal following. We’ve met people in here who have traveled for hours to come sup on delicious blue crabs. It’s a claw cracking, hammer swinging, beer drinking, lip smacking good time.

Cannizzaro’s Pizzeria is Fantastic

Cannizzaro's Pizzeria

Cannizzaro’s is the latest occupant of one of the cutest local places to eat in Wake Forest. The dinning room, if you can call it that, can probably hold a total of 30 people but that’s just fine. While the food here is fantastic, it’s a wonderful place to go for the brick walls and old wood floors, as well. …
