This morning we had plans to have breakfast at another popular spot in Savannah. An hour before leaving the hotel, I was browsing the internet for “unique breakfasts” in Savannah, and kept coming across a place called b.Matthew’s Eatery. We finally decided to change our plans and give this new place a try. This #44 rated restaurant on TripAdvisor is located on busy Bay Street, which runs parallel to the river. From what I saw it looked like parking was limited, and had to be found on the metered streets, or possibly if it’s the right time of the day, across the street near River Street. The corner building appears to be apartments on top, with the small eatery below. Continue reading Trip Report: Savannah, GA (June, 2013) Day 3: 8:30 a.m. b.Matthew’s Eatery
While walking around Savannah, my wife was getting hungry (go figure, it wasn’t me this time) and we used the TripAdvisor app to find the closest restaurants to our location. We came up with #78 rated (they also have a #145 rated location on another street in Savannah) B & D Burgers. I didn’t think much of it when I came upon the building. It looked like any normal restaurant/bar. Continue reading Trip Report: Savannah, GA (June, 2013) Day 2: 7:00 p.m. B & D Burgers
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.

This morning started with breakfast at Henry’s, which was on the other side of the block from our hotel.
I didn’t bring my camera because after looking at their menu in our hotel room, there didn’t seem to be anything special worth photographing. It wasn’t until we got home that I regretted that decision. Not because the food was anything special, it wasn’t. I remembered my reasoning for these reviews, while they may be helpful to those of you reading, they’re really meant for me. They’re a way for me to keep a record of places I’ve been and foods I’ve eaten. This is useful for entertainment purposes looking back and seeing some great eats, but also to help me decide whether or not to go back to a place, and if I do, what might be a good or bad choice on what to order.

Dinner reservations for our first night in Savannah were made at The Olde Pink House. Considered by many to be one of the best restaurants in Savannah (#8 of 403 restaurants in the city on TripAdvisor), it was the one restaurant I had definite plans to visit before we even left for our trip. There is a lot of history to this 18th century mansion, which has been used as a home, a bank, headquarters for the Union General, and now a restaurant.
Located in Reynolds Square, parking can be found on local streets or in the garage at the square. Since I was staying at the Planter’s Inn next door, I walked. This building is also a popular stop on ghost tours, as the original owner, James Habersham supposedly hanged himself in the basement in 1799 and is said to roam around the house at times.

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
