eat in savannah

probably my favorite part of our trip. we love to eat and savannah has a lot of yummy things to offer.

touristy, yes. delicious, absolutely. we stopped by river street sweets our first night in savannah and i had the pleasure of devouring one of their famous pralines.

for breakfast we loved the harris baking company. perfect croissants and the prettiest pastries!

for lunch we ate at soho south cafe per ellen's recommendation (thank you!) and it was a perfect, charming place. would be great for a girl's lunch, but sam loved it too! fresh, southern, and very charming.

we had two fantastic dinners and one not so fantastic dinner. let's keep it positive! we loved our drinks so much at the bohemian that we did dinner there the next night with a lovely couple we met who shared the same anniversary! dinner was fantastic, the atmosphere was great, and the servers were excellent. i recommend the french dip!

our anniversary was spent at alligator soul, which was so amazing. thanks kristen! we sat by the fire while we waited for our table and the beignet fried chicken was delectable! highly recommend.

for dessert you must go to leopold's! famous for their ice cream that simply melts in your mouth. leopold's has starred in several films as well!

stay tuned tomorrow for things to do!

glad you enjoyed alligator soul. Brian and I actually found a $20 bill on the street right outside the restaurant and just added it onto our tip because everything was so good!
