Piedmont Avenue Reviews

1 review
Piedmont Avenue has a lot to offer. There are many places to eat and get coffee, as well as stop by a locally owned store. It's very busy on the weekends, as people visit for lunch and dinner, and shopping in between. A lot of people also walk their dogs up and down, and some places allow the dogs in the store!
