Have a Brew-tiful Day at Pearlee and Cille’s Bagel Cafe in Belmont

Categories: Belmont, News | Posted: August 15, 2018 | Comments Off on Have a Brew-tiful Day at Pearlee and Cille’s Bagel Cafe in Belmont

In Belmont, where gracious living is our way of life, the only thing better than a hot cup of coffee and a delicious meal is being able to share these simple pleasures with family and friends. In 2017, Pearlee and Cille’s redefined the meaning of “one stop shop” — not only do they serve coffee drinks, ice cream, and other treats, they provide a place for families to slow down and spend time together.

In the backyard of this charming little cafe, which was once the home of the late and beloved Belmont mayor Kevin Loftin, an expansive play area lets children run around and have fun. Here, parents and grandparents gather to mingle, enjoy their food and drinks, and take the time to enjoy their loved ones. It’s truly a hometown treasure!

How it All Came to Be

Although Pearlee and Cille’s opened its doors in February 2017, its story began many years earlier. Growing up, Kevin Loftin, Belmont’s mayor, and his second cousin, Tom Weathers, were often referred to as brothers due to their close relationship. After Kevin tragically died in a car accident in 2012, it was no surprise that he left the now-home of Pearlee and Cille’s to his cousin Tom to either live in or turn into something special. Tom’s choice was to turn this home into a place for Belmont residents to gather and talk to new people. He knew that coffee was the perfect avenue to good conversation and cheer, and decided on a name that reflects family; Pearlee is his great aunt, and Lucille is his grandmother.

Kevin and Tom had very similar ideals. Kevin embodied the values of family and friendship that is so important to Belmont, and Tom continues to carry on this legacy today. Belmont residents come together in this wonderful bagel shop, enjoy tasty treats, and preserve the graciousness that makes Belmont so special.

A place for adults to recharge and children to play, Pearlee and Cille’s is a perfect afternoon or weekend destination. As some things change quickly in the Charlotte area, others tend to stay the same. Hospitality, friends, love, and warmth have always been staples of this small community, and they always will be. What matters most is that it’s not about the dollar, but about everyone coming together.

Stop in and Say Hello

Today, visitors are encouraged to visit the bagel shop to enjoy standard delicacies, as well as a mini donut machine, Hershey’s ice cream, and more! The fenced backyard includes a 1,100-square foot patio with a fireplace, along with volleyball, a swing set, teeter totters, music, and more. A full kitchen provides breakfast, lunch, and dinner, which you can also enjoy with beer or wine. A local business in every sense, many people say that coming to Pearlee and Cille’s is like “being at grandma’s house, getting a treat, and sitting around talking.”

Enjoy hometown hospitality, spend time with your family, and connect with the residents from your town in a way that you never have before. This sentiment is even sweeter when you can go home to a spacious, comfortable Evans Coghill home in McLean, offering the privacy of a beautiful, peaceful community, as well as the camaraderie of a gracious small town.
