A few months ago Dan and I went to Savannah for a college friend’s wedding. When I found out that the wedding was in Savannah, I was super excited because it was a city I had always wanted to visit. After hearing so many good things about it, Savannah definitely did not disappoint. All of the streets are lined with oak trees dripping with Spanish moss, which was absolutely beautiful and one of my favorite things about the city. I could have spent all day walking around and taking pictures of the trees. Savannah is also home to a number of great restaurants and bakeries, many of which we got to try during our visit.
Our first stop in Savannah was Leopold’s Ice Cream. I don’t think I have ever seen such a long line out the door of an ice cream shop. I ordered a cup of chocolate chewies and cream, which was somewhat of a combination between chocolate chip and cookie dough. So good!
Although we were pretty busy with pre-wedding festivities, we did find some time to explore the city and of course try some of the food. On our first morning we had breakfast at J. Christopher’s. Dan ordered the banana bread french toast, something I really need to try making at home. Anyways, he loved it and I also loved the few bites he let me try.
I ordered their famous blueberry crunchcakes, a stack of blueberry pancakes topped with crunchy granola. I enjoyed my breakfast, but overall I think I preferred Dan’s banana bread french toast. It was that good. J. Christopher’s was a great way to kick off our weekend in Savannah and is definitely worth a visit if you are ever in the city.
After breakfast we walked around the city for a few hours. We stumbled upon a tiny macaron shop called Maison de Macarons and decided to sample a few macarons. We tried the tybee turtle macaron, a flavor that was recommended by the cashier, as well as the chocolate-covered strawberry macaron. They weren’t quite as good as my favorite macarons from Bouchon Bakery in New York City, but still pretty good. …
