Noodles & Company

From Sarah C. today:

Our mommies group recently had lunch out at Noodles & Company in Cary. Having 4 mommies and 4 little ones at one table can be quite a feat (although mild compared to the 6 of each we managed at Cheesecake Factory in Durham a few months ago). Arriving a bit ahead of the lunch crowd, we managed to find a table for six that would fit us all. Having enough highchairs was our greater concern, but no worries here - they had plenty for us plus other families that arrived after. I saw at least 7 plus booster seats.

If you haven't experienced Noodles & Company before, it's a quick service restaurant that, as the name implies, serves various pasta dishes as well as
soups and salads. You place your order and pay at the counter. The cashier gives you a number. Find a table, place your number in the holder and wait for a server to bring out your food.

With multiple little ones, we found it easier to first locate a table. Then one of the mommies went up to place the order for all of us while the other mommies kept the little ones entertained. The food came very fast which we were all grateful for. The little ones, who had begun their meals as soon as we sat down, were ready to bolt from their highchairs and crawl around.

Before leaving, D and I made a quick trip to the restroom for a diaper change. Note that there is a single toilet room for men and women, but the restroom was very clean and had a nice changing table. All pluses and worth the wait.

If you're looking for something else to do in the area before or after your meal, there are plenty of activities from shopping to movies in Crossroads Plaza. Further down Walnut Street just on the other side of US 1/64, you will find Monkey Joe's, Borders and Walnut Street Park.

Yup, Noodles & Co has a few locations in our area. Not only in CHill and Durham, but also Raleigh's Cameron Village.

I personally was so happy to see that one go in on Franklin Street; that space had been wasted for far too long!

Thanks for the reminder!

In fact, addresses as follows:

Chapel Hill
214 Franklin Street

Durham
2608 Erwin

Happy noodling guys.
