Highland Bakery, Part 3

It’s been a while since I last visited Highland bakery in Atlanta. You can find reviews of my last two visits here: Part 1, Part 2. I had been dying to get back and try a meal I had on my first ever visit, before I started doing these reviews. During my last meal that I reported, I ordered a plate of French toast, but made mention of their Peanut Butter French Toast. I wasn’t completely in love with the peanut butter version when I first had it, due to the brown sugar butter that was served in lieu of maple syrup. When I learned that I could order regular maple syrup for both French toast plates, I was ready to give the peanut butter another shot. Continue reading Highland Bakery, Part 3

It’s time for another edition of City Cafe snacks, and this one is a feast. I picked up several treats from my favorite local bakery to bring home and eat. As this was a to-go order, I’ll get right down to business and show you my selections. After this run, I only have a few items from their case to try, other than the rotating cakes and pies that are constantly changing. Continue reading Comprehensive Review: City Cafe, Part 5

Comprehensive Review: City Cafe, Part 4

I recently made another stop at City Cafe while running errands. My wife and I stopped here on the way home to pick up some desserts to sample. Previously, I started this comprehensive review by enjoying a lunch, then I came back for some desserts, and then back again for another meal. I didn’t stay long enough on this stop to get any new information on the restaurant, so this will simply be a quick review of some treats we brought home to enjoy.

Comprehensive Review: City Cafe, Part 2

For this brief second installment of the comprehensive City Cafe review, I will cover some treats I picked up after a late breakfast at Highland Bakery. You can read the first review here. City Cafe is open every day except Sunday. They have separate hours for the bakery and the restaurant, so check their hours before visiting. It’s all one room as shown before, the difference being whether the kitchen is open or not.

On this day they serve lunch between 11:00 am and 2:30 pm, and the bakery remains open until 4:00 pm. I arrived just thirty minutes before closing.

Highland Bakery, Part 2

Back in June I highlighted some bakery treats from Highland Bakery in Atlanta.

That was just a quick stop after lunch to sample a couple items. Today’s visit was to sit down and enjoy breakfast. It appears that since June, they have improved their rating on TripAdvisor from # 38 to # 28 of 3,353 Atlanta restaurants.

Comprehensive Review: City Cafe, Part 1

Since moving to the Fayetteville, GA area, I’ve had a couple opportunities to sample some treats from City Cafe. This cafe features German cuisine, and also embodies a fantastic bakery case. This will be my first comprehensive review of a restaurant. The plan is to eventually try everything available from their menu and bakery case, along with providing as much information about the location, owners, food, and atmosphere that I can. This will be a several month venture, but an enjoyable one. In order to not overwhelm you, I will spread the many smaller articles out, and intermix them with other reviews.

Trip Report: Savannah, GA (June, 2013) Day 2: 12:00 p.m. Leopold’s Ice Cream

After a lunch at Zunzi’s, we decided to grab a treat at Leopold’s Ice Cream. This #2 rated spot on TripAdvisor (yes, it’s two spots higher than Zunzi’s) is another place that has lines that are many times out the door. I didn’t get a lot of photos inside, so next trip will be a more detailed review. Leopold’s has 24 regular flavors of ice cream and 22 additional seasonal flavors available at various times throughout the year.

Trip Report: Savannah, GA (June, 2013) Day 1: 12:00 p.m. Clary’s Cafe

I visited Savannah, GA over the weekend and wanted to sample plenty of food along with the history of the city. Not everything I ate is featured here. I left out the bags of sweets I ate from the two amazing candy shops, River Street Sweets and Savannah Candy Kitchen. I also left out photos of one breakfast, which I explain later in this report.

For our first stop, we wanted to start with a breakfast meal, even though we wouldn’t be arriving in Savannah until about 11:00 a.m. Browsing the internet for a good place that serves breakfast all day we found Clary’s Cafe (rated #86 of 403 restaurants in the city on TripAdvisor). There some photos of people’s meals that intrigued me, one of which I planned to order myself. Continue reading Trip Report: Savannah, GA (June, 2013) Day 1: 12:00 p.m. Clary’s Cafe

Highland Bakery, Part 1

I will begin by asking that you please excuse the shoddy camera work. The photos taken here were done quickly, with the food shots taken in the car so the lighting and focus didn’t always work to my advantage.

After a disappointing meal at the Radial Cafe we decided to head down the street to Highland Bakery. Atlanta has three locations. I’ve been to the other one for breakfast, rated #176 of 1,378 restaurants in Atlanta on TripAdvisor, and loved it. The one we visited today is the original, and rated #38.
