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.

New Homeowners Will Love McLean’s Seven Oaks Cafe

Categories: McLean, Neighborhoods | Posted: July 17, 2018 | Comments Off on New Homeowners Will Love McLean’s Seven Oaks Cafe


As beloved chef Julia Child once said, “People who love to eat are always the best people.” In North Carolina, we know that a good meal is much more than just food; it brings people together and gives us another reason to be grateful.

Our Evans Coghill Homes team is excited about a new culinary experience just a minute away from McLean in Belmont, where we’re building new homes from the $340s in the community’s Overlake section! Having just recently opened, Seven Oaks Cafe is already making a splash in Belmont as a true hometown, history-rich spot to share a meal.

Located in the McLean House, Seven Oaks Cafe truly takes you back in time while offering modern options for brunch, lunch, and dinner. This stunning, newly-restored 1850’s home belonged to John Davidson McLean and his father, William McLean, who were the first doctors in Gaston County.

The beautiful land that encompasses McLean was acquired by Daniel Stowe during World War II, who farmed the land, and used it for celebratory events with family and friends. Today, Seven Oaks Cafe secures its spot within the traditions and history of this incredible, rich land.

Just like its sister restaurant, The String Bean, Seven Oaks Cafe provides families with a warm and comforting spot to enjoy a Southern meal. Adjacent to the gorgeous Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden, Belmont’s newest restaurant is a scenic food experience that makes you feel right at home.

If you love a good meal shared with family and friends in a welcoming and friendly environment, you’ll love this new cafe in one of Belmont’s most desired neighborhoods, McLean. Here, history and traditions are forever a part of our lives, and we graciously honor the legacy of our town by coming together as a community — which is easy with amazing food!

For more information on the brand new Seven Oaks Cafe, visit their website. For more information on becoming a new homeowner at McLean, contact our New Home Specialist, Kendell Burruss, at 704-899-4995. We have a variety of new home plans for millennials to families to those looking to downsize!
