Savannah Afternoon

If you're a tourist in Savannah, chances are that eating at Paula Deen's restaurant is somewhere on your to-do list. I've never personally been there, but I've heard from friends and family that it really isn't that impressive. My in-laws compared the buffet to that of Golden Corral. I'm not sure about you, but I'd rather only pay $9 for mass-produced, low quality, all you can eat food. I still love you Paula!

Anyway, we have our own favorite little breakfast/brunch/lunch spot in Savannah. It's kind of randomly dropped in the middle of one of the historic neighborhoods, and we weren't sure how to find it the first time we visited, but it's totally worth the search. Clary's is a fantastic little diner-style restaurant in the heart of Savannah with some of the best stuffed French Toast you'll ever have.

I've always had the breakfast there, but since we went in the afternoon this last time, I had a cup of soup and a sandwich. Their Tomato Basil Bisque was spectacularly creamy with plenty of cream cheese (also my secret ingredient in tomato soup) and chunks of tomato. I got a BLT sandwich which was loaded with tons of crispy bacon and perfectly toasted bread. Hubs got the Elvis, which is French toast stuffed with peanut butter and banana. Yum!


Since we were headed to Forsythe Park after lunch, we brought our dog along. They have tables out on the sidewalk, so you're welcome to bring pets to eat with you. They're super pet friendly and even brought Caesar out a bowl of water, along with tons of tasty doggie treats.

Even though the park wasn't too far away, we drove to make it easy with the babies and their stroller. I seriously love this park because they water fountains for dogs right under the people fountains. And it's just beautiful. I know it's weird, but I love that the grass was so impressively bright and green. I laid on a blanket with the dog for the majority of the time and Hubs and his mom played with the girls on the playground. Since SCAD is in the area there were plenty of hipsters, but probably just as many families doing the same as us.

Being stationed at Fort Stewart and it's proximity to Savannah and the beaches has been wonderful! We'll be pretty busy in the next couple of months leading up to our PCS, but hopefully we'll be able to make it out to Forsythe again. Maybe next time without the dog, since he was wanting to play with all of the other dogs there, most of which were half his size. The last thing I need is to be sued because of my hyperactive pet.

I was not compensated in any way for this post.
