We stopped in Savannah on our way down to St. Augustine, FL. We haven’t been to Savannah in a few years. It is one of our favorite cities. The food, the drinks, the architecture, and the cemeteries – we love them. We only had about 24 hours in Savannah, so we did our best to hit up a lot of places. We ate and drank our way all around town!
The BBQ Egg Rolls were SOOOO good! I am still thinking about them!
Molly MacPherson’s is a Scottish Pub and Grill.
We stopped in for a pint. I got the Magners Irish Cider – yum!
We didn’t eat at Gryphon, but we wanted to see the interior. It is an old pharmacy. They kept the stained glass windows and drawers from the original business. It is a really neat cafe. They have soups, salads, sandwiches and desserts. It is on our list for our next visit.
We loved Six Pence!
We sat at the bar and did a mini beer tasting with the bartender.
She let us sample some of the beers on tap.
We loved all the beer mugs that were shaped like historical Brits.
We ordered a couple of appetizers – Nachos and Welch Rarebit (beer cheese).
It was all great!
This dog is in heaven! Notice his goggles.
17 Hundred 90 is our favorite drinking hole in Savannah.
They give generous pours and it isn’t expensive. Our two favorite things!
They have a restaurant, but I haven’t eaten at it.
The hotel was beautiful!
The building was built back in 1888 and was previously a funeral home.
I bet it is haunted!
The hotel offers cooking classes – I definitely want to check those out next time.
The Rooftop Bar at the top of the Bohemian hotel on the river is the perfect spot to watch the sunset.
Can’t miss the Mercer House of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil fame.
Another Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil celebrity.
I am going to make Chicken Legs go to her show. I bet it is spectacular!
We had dinner at one of our favorite spots – The Olde Pink House.
I got a “Pink Lady” (lemonade and raspberry vodka). Chicken Legs got a jalapeño margarita.
The bread basket was SO good! I could have made a meal out of it.
Since we had eaten at several spots already, we opted for some appetizers and cheese grits.
We got the BBQ Chicken Sliders and Crab Cakes. Both were great, and the cheese grits were crazy good!
Shopping on River Street
No trip to Savannah is complete without stopping at Leopold’s for ice cream.
All of the ice cream flavors are made on site.
I went with the peanut butter chippy. Next time I am adding chocolate sauce on top. YUM!
Clary’s is mentioned in the book Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil.
Clary’s is our usual breakfast spot. It isn’t a fancy place.
They have the usual diner fare. It is all delicious. The potatoes were my favorite.
This is the cutest bakery! I love how it is decorated. Feels very retro.
We drove over here after breakfast.
I indulged in a Cinnamon Biscone. O-M-G! SOOO good!
I bought the cookbook. The biscone recipe is in here. Can’t wait to try it!
Maison de Macaron
We walked past this macaron shop the night before. We made a quick stop on our way out of town.
I bought Vanilla, Key Lime, Bourbon Pecan, Snickers, Salted Caramel and Hazelnut.
They were SO good. I couldn’t pick a favorite. They were all too good.
They ship their macarons – I will be buying some soon!
No trip to Savannah is complete without visiting a cemetery.
Bonaventure is where “bird girl” was from Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil.
The statue has been relocated to the Telfair Museum of Art downtown, but there are plenty of other impressive burial statues.
There you have it!
24 hours in Savannah.
We are already planning on when to go back.
We have a few spots we know we want to go:
Vinnie Van Go Go’s Pizza is at the top of the list.
Mrs. Wilkes Dining Room
Soho South Cafe
Jazz’d Tapas Bar
Lulu’s Chocolate Bar
What are your favorite places?
