For this week’s business feature, we hear from Be Just, a shop that houses a collection of household essentials that combine functionality, form, and beauty in the Belmont area of Charlottesville, Virginia. 

What do you love most about your area and how long have you been located there?

Be Just has been in our location in Belmont for going on nine months. Shawn, the owner, has lived and worked in and around the area for the past fifteen years.

Is your area known for anything in particular? (ie style of food, tourist attractions, architecture, weather, seasonal traditions, etc)

Charlottesville is best known for Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello and The University of Virginia Charlottesville is home to a large viticulture industry - multiple beautiful wineries are located throughout the surrounding countryside. The backdrop of the nearby Blue Ridge Mountains is a major draw for destination weddings. The city is located next to the Shenandoah National Park, which draws many folks looking to explore the park system.  Despite the small size of Charlottesville, it has been widely recognized for it’s incredible culinary scene. 

Describe your favorite sights and activities in your area

Some of our favorites include driving along Skyline Drive in the Shenandoah National Park, hiking one of the multiple peaks in the SNP, and perusing the farmer’s market near Charlottesville’s Downtown Mall (a large pedestrian mall will large shady trees and small businesses)

Tell us about some of your favorite places to get food/drinks in your area

Tavola:  Conveniently right across the street from the shop, Tavola offers beautifully prepared, authentic Italian. For a complete visit head to their Ciccheti bar located in the back of Tavola. Tavola’s knowledgeable bar staff will ply you with the most delicious cocktails. 

Bizou: A French diner serving Virginian dishes with locally and sustainably sourced food. Always delicious!

Little Star: Mexican-Spanish fusion style fare that is just plain fantastic

Bodo’s: A Charlottesville institution. They have hands down the best New York style bagels. 

Luce: To-go, authentic Italian pasta…. need I say more. 

Oakhart Social,Mas, andLampo are also top favorites to eat and drink.
