Off to Vancouver: Jam Cafe

It was time to meet up with my sister for our annual sisters trip! Since she decided to go back to school, we planned to go somewhere in March for her Spring Break. Our past couple trips included Thailand and Japan, but this time we stayed a bit “closer” and went to the Pacific Northwest….

Brunch at The Publican

After a wonderful dinner Friday night followed by some drinks and serious bubble hockey and a Thai fix Saturday, I woke up to a light dusting of snow covering the city Sunday morning. I was in need of a good hearty brunch and The Publican was calling my name. Walking in with no reservation, most…

Hominy Grill, The Charleston Museum, and 167 Raw

I just found out that the award-winning downtown Charleston restaurant, Hominy Grill, had their final day of service yesterday on April 28th. I’m glad I had a chance to dine at the iconic Lowcountry eatery before it closed its doors after a stellar 24-year run. Chef Robert Stehling, who earned a James Beard Award for…

Millers All Day, Pineapple Tours, and Revelry Brewing Co.

The small charming diner serves sandwiches, donuts, cocktails, and all-day breakfasts. I only waited for a few minutes before one of the five stools at the bar became vacant. I ordered the Seasonal House…

Breakfast at Steel Vintage Bikes Cafe

Breakfast at Tandem Coffee + Bakery

It was my third day in Portland, Maine and a much easier morning since I actually went to bed before 5am. For breakfast I went to Tandem Coffee + Bakery, another spot featured in Bon Appetit’s article. When I arrived, there was a line out the door. It was a gorgeous sunny day and I…

Brunch at Meat & Potatoes

It was my third day in Pittsburgh and the weekend has arrived. I walked over to Meat & Potatoes for Saturday brunch. The city’s first gastropub features unique takes on classic American fare and handcrafted libations. I took a seat at the large marble-top bar and ordered a cocktail. Boozy brunches are the best! The…
