My second day in Savannah started off with brunch at B. Matthew’s Eatery. The casual bistro with exposed brick walls serves brunch Saturdays and Sundays in Savannah’s Historic District. I sat at the bar and started my morning with an Apricot Ginger Bellini.
I ordered the Bay Street Scramble made with scrambled eggs, mushrooms, bacon, tomatoes, green onions, cheddar cheese, breakfast potatoes, and mornay sauce (a béchamel sauce with Gruyère cheese). It came with a yummy homemade biscuit. I also tried the Cheese Grits.
Afterwards I walked around lovely Savannah for a bit where I saw the birthplace of Juliette Low, founder of the Girls Scouts. I strolled through Chippewa Square which is featured in Forrest Gump. It’s where Forrest sat on a bench and talked about his adventures.
I also passed by the Cathedral of St. John The Baptist and Colonial Cemetery.
It was fairly hot out and the perfect way to cool off is to enjoy some ice cream at Leopold’s Ice Cream. The popular ice cream parlor specializes in award-winning, homemade super-premium ice cream that hasn’t changed since 1919.
All the flavors sounded so good. I went with the refreshing Soulful Strawberry Lemonade Sorbet and incredible Rum Bisque. Good stuff!
When I left, a line was forming outside. It looked like I just missed the ice cream rush! I stopped by the hotel for a bit then went to a couple bars before I had to make my way to a famous cemetery for a tour.
