Something Good . . .

As I approach the first anniversary of moving into my neighborhood I thought I would share some of my favorite local food finds.

First up is Yvonne's Southern Sweets.  This bakery makes a killer butter cookie.   How killer is it?  I don't even like butter cookies but I LOVED this cookie.  While you are there be sure to also pick up a sweet potato pie.

The only downside to Yvonne's is her hours of operation.  She is not open after 5pm and is closed on Sunday and Monday so the commuter will have to find her treats in several other restaurants in the neighborhood.

For a filling omelet that you can enjoy while taking in a pretty cool view of the City try Bayside Cafe.

If barbecue is your thing than you must try Smokin' Warehouse Barbecue.  I recommend the tender Pulled Pork Sandwich.  

Also, just as an FYI; the first time I went to Smokin' Warehouse Barbecue I asked if they sold desserts.  The cashier told me, "No."   As I started to pull out my wallet to pay for my order I saw a display of cookies behind the counter.

"What are those?" I pointed and asked.

"Cookies," the cashier replied.

"Isn't that dessert?" I said.

"No, dessert is pie.  These are cookies," she said.

"Well, then I want some "not dessert" cookies," I said.   

So if you want something sweet to top off your meal like I do, Smokin' Warehouse Barbecue does sell cookies.

Last but not least, try this unique offering at Frisco Fried called the "Burger Dog."  The "Burger Dog" is a hamburger shaped to fit into a hot dog bun.   This meal is fun and tasty even though the meat is a little on the dry side. The "Burger Dog" comes with a large serving of really good fries.

  1. Wow, now I will go off to my bowl of cheerios...Looks good..Happy one year anniversary!


  2. I can vouch for the BBQ place and the Bayside Cafe. After a breakfast Bayside I went to a baseball game and ate nothing and still wasn't all that hungary when dinner time rolled around. Not only is the food outstanding at the BBQ place you are really out standing in the street when you order it. Talking to some of the other local customers is a trip.


  3. o, now you are really making me have hunger pains. i ate my cheerios way too long ago; i want some of your food suggestions!
    happy happy one year anniversary! i hope you have enjoyed your first year as much as i have for you.
    love, mom

  4. This anniversary calls for a housewarming party!
