Hey guys! For my first food travel guide, I decided on Savannah, GA. I though it would be ideal considering it’s one of the best cities for foodie’s. My husband and I visited the city for our one year wedding anniversary. It was the perfect, low key, weekend getaway destination. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised to find that most of these places on the list are affordable. Enjoy!
1. The Collins Quarter
Brunch, Lunch, Dinner, & Coffee Bar ($$)
Get brunch here at least once, their Smashed Avocado and Brioche French Toast are absolutely the best breakfast dishes that I have tried outside New York (and that is saying something). When it comes to coffee or tea this place was by far the best spot for me. Hot & Iced coffee’s were always perfectly made. They also offered cold brews and Green Tea Matcha Latte’s which is now my hubby’s favorite beverage of all time. Lunch is also fantastic, try the Skinny Shrimp Salad, Fish Tacos, or the Brisket Burger (if you’re really hungry). Did I mention that the service is amazing? I guess that’s southern hospitality for ya!
2. The Olde Pink House
Best for Dinner & Bar ($$$)
While in Savannah make reservations to this place. It would have to be the most expensive restaurant on my list. We decided to splurge a little on the night of our anniversary and go to this historic mansion for dinner. Sorry no pictures for this one, we were too busy being romantic (also it was far too fancy to start taking plate pictures)! This home was built before the Revolutionary War, it is beautiful to see and a pleasure to visit. The servers are extremely accommodating (again that southern hospitality), and if you ask they’ll tell you stories about the homes rich history. First things first, try the Shrimp & Grits appetizer. My husband hates grits and he was astonished by how much he enjoyed it, most definitely our favorite appetizer. The salmon dish is perfection, but by what I was seeing it would be mighty tough to make the wrong call on an entree at this place. Everything looked amazing,.. you can’t go wrong.
3. The Public Kitchen & Bar
Lunch & Dinner ($$)
If you’re looking for dinner and drinks, this is another great place to visit. Not as expensive as the Olde Pink House but high quality food. I had Shrimp & Grits again (when in Rome…), my husband had their Seafood Paella. Both were fantastic but I also hear their menu is all top notch so you can’t go wrong with anything here either! Check out their cocktails, all very unique.
Lunch & Dinner ($)
Don’t let the small appearance fool you. This place has some BIG taste. If you’re in the mood for a good sandwich, it’s the spot for you. The CONQUISTADOR was my favorite, and one of their most popular items on the menu. Made with baked chicken breast with lettuce, tomato, and topped with their Special Sauce on French Bread. Perfect if you want quick food, without waiters.
5. Savannah’s Coffee Roasters
Coffee & Tea Bar ($)
This would be my second runner up when it comes to coffee. However you might think differently depending on your preferred coffee and taste. The only way to know for sure is to try both! They also have a food menu and pastries from their bakery.
