Volunteer Park Cafe’s Heather Earnhardt was born in North Carolina, and the Wandering Goose is her “tiny but magical” Southern-influenced cafe—biscuit sandwiches, hush puppies, grits, country ham, various gravies, greens, and more, all “seasonal and affordable” for take-out or eat-in breakfast or lunch. The space has a wall of vintage windows looking into Ethan Stowell’s Rione XIII next door.
