Brunch at The Ordinary Pub

It was my fourth day in Savannah! I enjoyed a cheeseburger dinner and beers the previous night, now it was time to check out another spot for brunch – The Ordinary Pub. The casual eatery with exposed-brick walls serves brunch daily and craft cocktails.

I took a seat at the bar and looked over their cocktail menu. It’s never too early for a drink, especially when it comes to brunch! (Okay actually alcohol can’t be served until 12:30pm on Sundays according to Georgia state law.) I tried the Queen Bee made with Old Grove gin, local honey, fresh squeezed lemon juice, house simple syrup, and fresh jalapeno. A refreshingly spicy way to start the day.

Everything on the food menu sounded great. I eventually decided to get the Chicken & Waffle Gyro. The soft waffle flatbread was stuffed with fried chicken and gobs of herb mascarpone cream cheese and topped with a honey poblano drizzle. It was served with a side of  bourbon maple stone ground grits. Good stuff!

It was a nice sunny day and after brunch I walked to the Jepson Center for the Arts. It’s a museum of contemporary art and activities housed in a cool modern building. I love checking out at least one art museum when I’m exploring a new city. The most famous piece of work at the Jepson Center may be the Bird Girl statue that was on the cover of the bestselling novel Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil.

You’re free to browse the permanent collection and special exhibits at your own pace. There were a couple interactive areas that used Virtual Reality (VR) headsets that completely submerged you in digital works of art. So cool!

The museum is one of three museum sites comprising the line of Telfair Museums. In addition to the Owens-Thomas House, the third is the Telfair Academy which was just a short walk away from the Jepson Center. The two-story mansion contains three 19th century period rooms and houses 19th and 20th century American and European art.

After a few hours of incredible art, I enjoyed the beautiful day and just walked around lovely Savannah for a bit before stopping by a popular eatery serving up one of the best sandwiches in town!
