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.

Canoe: Part 1

Last February, my wife and I visited Canoe for Valentine’s Day dinner. Ever since, we’ve considered it one our favorite places tried in Atlanta. After a little over a year we decided to return. Some of the dishes will be repeats from last time, others will be new to us.

We split all the appetizers and desserts between the two of us, and ordered our own entrées. The first appetizer was a repeat from last time, and was definitely worth the second try. It was Canoe’s House Smoked Salmon on a crispy potato cake with Vermont goat’s cheese. Continue reading Canoe: Part 1
