Small Bites: Charlotte Street businesses reopen after a break

This meat’s for you: Rob Mueller presides over a gorgeous looking case of meat in the newly reopened Chop Shop Butcher Shop.

Two neighboring businesses on Charlotte Street are back in business after a hiatus.

For the Chop Shop Butchery, the break was not planned — a few pipes burst on the upper floor of the building, soaking everything below. The business is now dried off and ready to satisfy all of your meaty needs.

The Chop Shop is located at 100 Charlotte St. Also, visit the meatery's Facebook page for details and deals.

City Bakery elected to close for a spell for renovations, reopening in late February with a new display case, an expanded dining area and big plans.

City Bakery has also begun work in earnest on a new location in Waynesville, and some of the production of baked goods will shift to that facility. What does this mean for you? Doughnuts.

The doughnuts are still in the recipe-and-development phase, says City Bakery manager Brian Dennehy, but about a half-dozen flavors at a time can be expected when the sweet breakfast treats debut. Expect classic doughnuts as well as jam-filled, made with local Imladris Farms berry preserves. A maple-bacon variety is also in the works.

City Bakery is located at 88 Charlotte St. For more, visit
