Hey y'all! We got back from Savannah last night and I have so much to show you! Honestly, all we did was eat, walk, and shop. But we had a blast!
Our first food adventure was J. Christopher's. We vowed to not eat at any chain restaurants but this one is SO good and it's only found in Georgia.
If you order coffee they bring you a pot to keep on your table! My kind of place!
The husband had a spinach, bacon, shrimp, mushrooms and cream cheese omelet. I was starving so I had the eggs benedict. Holy moly... My mom makes the best eggs benedict ever and this one was SO close to hers!
And since we were in Savannah guess where we went to lunch? Yep... Paula Deen's restaurant.
They didn't start taking reservations until 9:30am. We showed up at 8:30 to wait and that's what the line looked like. There were probably 50 people already ahead of us.
The husband entertained us by snapping lots of pictures.
We managed to get a 12:45 lunch slot.
We did what most people do and ordered the buffet. I figured either it was going to be incredible or a major flop... I'm not a big fan of buffets. Not only do I have no self control but the food is never good.
After they brought us our sweet tea (incredible) and garlic cheddar biscuit and hoecake (UNREAL) we hit the buffet line!
There weren't too many things on the line but it was more than enough. I had fried chicken, mac-n-cheese, mashed potatoes with gravy, and cheesy meatloaf. They did have a salad bar but come on... you don't eat salad at Paula Deen's restaurant!!!
Oh my gosh... IT WAS SOOOOOOO GOOD... Y'ALL!!! The husband had 3 chicken breasts and 2 plates full of food! I just had my one plate.
After dinner they bring you out dessert choices and I was torn between the banana pudding and oreo buttercakes. The husband offered to get one so I could have both (he doesn't like dessert).
However, he fell in love with the oreo buttercakes and wouldn't share!!!
We loved The Lady and Sons. I've heard so many mixed reviews about it but we definitely thought it was worth the hour long wait! Everything was fresh and cooked well. The staff was incredibly nice and the atmosphere was perfect!
For dinner that night we made late reservations at Belford's.
We started with the baked brie. It was served with fruit salsa and an unbelievable house made blueberry sauce. For dinner I had the famous crabcakes. Which were delicious! Instead of using breadcrumbs for the crabcakes they used puffed pastry! Anything in puffed pastry is delicious! YUM! The only negative thing... The portions were teeny tiny... and the prices were really expensive... The food was excellent though we just wished there was more of it for the price.
We skipped out of dessert at Belfords and went acrossed the street to Cafe Gelatohhh's. I had a child's size cookies and cream. This was the child's size (probably a cup of gelato)! I didn't even finish it!
For breakfast the next morning we went to Goose Feathers. Which was my kind of place.
I love just a good simple bagel place. I had an everything bagel with bacon, egg, and vermont white cheddar cheese. It was wonderful. The bagel was so fresh, light, and airy!
And on our way out of town we got some pastries to go... at Harris Baking Co.
We passed this place a couple times while we were walking around. The smell coming from it was incredible! I opted for a chocolate croissant. I also had a sample of a cinnamon roll while we were paying. It was the best cinnamon roll I've ever had!
We had so much fun but were ready to come home. It was the perfect time to go. The weather was gorgeous and the azaleas were in full bloom. We did so much walking that my legs were sore the next day! Here are some more pictures of our trip.
The husband goes back to work tomorrow so the squirrel and I will be back to our same ol' routine. I'll definitely be needing to spend some time at the gym after that trip!
