We had a such great time in Savannah, Georgia. The city is absolutely charming. I am sitting in the airport now, waiting to get on my plane back to Texas, and I thought I’d post a few more pictures and write about some of my favorite spots.
As with any vacation, we spent much of our time eating. We enjoyed many of the restaurants, but I’ll just tell you about a few. Our very favorite was a small brunch/lunch cafe just outside the design district — Soho South Cafe. It’s located inside an art gallery, and the food was some of the best I’ve had. The menu was simple — mostly soup, salad and sandwiches. I ordered a portabella sandwich with vegetables and a side of three bean soup. Absolutely my favorite meal of the week.

We also ate at Rocks on the River, on the street level of The Bohemian Hotel. My husband Brian had the “freeform” eggplant lasagna (which I’ll try to re-create for you soon). I had a sun-dried tomato pesto and four cheese pizza. Both were fantastic.
Today we ate at Paula Deen’s The Lady & Sons, the much-anticipated highlight of our dining experience in Savannah. Although the buffet was plentiful and wonderfully southern, we weren’t wowed by the food. Perhaps our expectations were too high.

We had a great time shopping in Savannah. The downtown design district is home to around 15 excellent shops, including many antiques and vintage ones. Some of my favorites were One Fish Two Fish and Madame Chrysanthemum (with whom I discussed her possible relocation to Austin). There was a small (fantastic) bookstore called The Book Lady, where we spent a solid 45 minutes looking through old and new volumes.
That’s all for now, but I can’t wait to share with you about my favorite spot in Savannah, The Paris Market & Brocante. I’ll also add information about some of the great historic sights, including the childhood home of Flannery O’Connor.
