Best I could do was find recommendations for 30 East, located close to the Charlotte Nature Museum. Looks like a nice place for a nosh. Discovery Place also serves light snacks and lunches at its Community Cafe. Haven't eaten there personally, though my experience of museum-served fare is far from inspiring!

Answer this3 AnswersHi - we have lived outside of Charlotte for 2 years, and last year we purchased a season pass from Carowinds for the 1st time. It is a very good park to visit, and is comparable to other Paramount amusement parks. We have a 7 year old and a 3 year old, and there were plenty of rides to keep them busy. They also have a water park to cool off when you need a break, which is nice. The staff varies, so the service is adequate but nothing to brag about. But the rides are great! Tons of coasters, lots of games. You will need to spend the entire day to get your money's worth if you do not get a pass. Hope this helps - have a nice trip!
