Being such a classically bohemian arts community, NoDa would not be NoDa without a laid-back neighborhood coffee shop. Smelly Cat is it. Cozy and warm, locals file in each day for nourishment. A wide array of coffees and teas are available, as are smoothies, ice cream drinks, pastries, and bagels. Some folks grab some goodies on the run; others pull up a chair and read, write, or chat for a bit.
No, this place isn't connected to the hit Broadway Smokey Joe's Cafe revue, but it wouldn't be surprising if it was inspired by the pop culture behind it. While this bar and entertainment venue offers superb live music performances and cheap drinks, it does pose as more of a dive bar rather than a sophisticated watering hole. This however has not deterred its patrons from being loyal, and its first-timers from visiting again. Smokey Joe's Cafe usually features blues, Americana, indie, bluegrass, jazz, jam band, country, rock, jazz, folk, funk, and acoustic music performances. And there's also a pool table, an outdoor seating area with a swing, and other past times that make Smokey Joe's Cafe the ideal place to chill out with buddies, or unwind at after a hard day at work.
Va Da Vie offers a huge array of natural ice creams and gelatos. Their mouth-watering selection are the perfect antidote to summer heat. Though the cafe is tiny, their variety and quality of flavors are unmatched. Seasonal fruits and carefully-procured ingredients are combined to incredible effect. Their milk is locally-sourced from Homeland Creamery, while they import pistachios from Sicily and hazlenut paste from Piedmont, making each serve a delicious treat. The owners are truly passionate about their craft, and it shows in each scoop. Try the pistachio, bacio, coffee bean and lemon ricotta. Seasonal sorbets are a refreshing, dairy-free choice.
What happens when you mix sushi and burgers? Cowfish Sushi Burger Bar serves this interesting combination of Japanese and American cuisines to its adventurous patrons.

Try a Deliverance Roll which contains pork wrapped in seaweed and covered with barbecue sauce or sample a Bento Box with a burger-sushi combination. An open mind is all you need as you experience two diverse cultures come together in a memorable gustatory experience.
