Information about this business (6)


NOFO @ the Pig is located in Raleigh in the historic Five Points Business District very near Downtown and Glenwood South. Housed in a restored Piggly Wiggly grocery store building, it is a combination cafe, food market, and gift shop. NOFO's focus is on all things North Carolina and the South. It promotes "Love Living Local" with a wealth of carefully chosen products to eat, drink, wear, read,...

A gorgeous reinterpretation of the former Piggly Wiggly that used to occupy the spot (hence 'at the pig'). Downstairs, a restaurant with creative and tasty dishes; upstairs, a fabulous housewares/beauty/gourmet store.

When this likable restaurant and its crowded-with-novelties gift emporium opened here, in what was originally conceived in the 1950s as a member of the Piggly Wiggly grocery store chain, a team of designers added decorative touches such as a spectacular Murano glass chandelier. Menu items are savory, flavorful, and popular, including shrimp and grits; Thai-style chicken wraps; shrimp-studded...

A funky Five Points shop with great gifts and gadgets.

Definitely caught me by surprise. This place was one of the best breakfasts that I have had in a while. The pulled pork hash and French toast were amazing - highly recommend

For the gourmet palate there's inventive fare such as salt grilled salmon with roasted white grapes. For the vegetarian, wild mushroom, spinach and mascarpone pot pie. For the kids,...
