Around Town

Congratulations, Brian Cardoza, owner of 3/1 Cookies & Coffee Food Truck! You can now get his cookies at Savage’s Wood Burning Pizza — our favorite wood burning pizza in town, located at 303 Metcalf St. in Downtown New Bern.

We’d also like to give a shoutout to Jaydens Beef Fried Sausage Dogs located at 2700 Trent Blvd. We’ve only had the beef dogs and they were delicious!
