St. Augustine Edition: The Hyppo

Location: 48 Charlotte Street St Augustine, FL 32084

After a long, hot day of exploring historic St Augustine, a sweet treat was a must! As we wandered through the small streets and alleys of St Augustine, we stumbled upon an oasis of frozen treats, The Hyppo!

We walked in and were greeted by friendly faces eager to have us try the popsicles! There were so many options. As I made my way down the frozen case of goodness, I was having trouble deciding on just one. After much deliberation, I settled on a cinnamon pear pie popsicle (or some flavor similar) and to add more decadence to the treat, I dipped it in chocolate.

St Augustine Edition: Maple Street Biscuit Company

Location: Multiple (but I went to: 39 Cordova Street St Augustine, FL 32084)

On an impromptu cousin day trip to St Augustine, we found ourselves starving and ready for food after making the rainy drive from Orlando. On the advice of a friend, we decided to head to Maple Street Biscuit Company for some satisfying comfort food.

Upon arrival, the menu alone was enough to send a tingle of excitement down my spine. Maple Street is one of those places where every single thing on the menu is a serious contender for delicious eats.  Continue reading “St Augustine Edition: Maple Street Biscuit Company”

Houston Edition: Rudy’s Country Store and Bar-BQ

Location: Multiple locations

How could I possibly go to Texas and not indulge in BBQ at least once!? After heading back to Houston before the flight home, BBQ was on the agenda. Lucky for me Rudy’s is a local chain of BBQ restaurants that my friend decided to bring us to.

I should put out there now, if I haven’t already, that I’m not the biggest fan of BBQ. I’m not sure why exactly, it’s just usually not a food I go out of my way to eat or try. Everyone has preferences right? Continue reading “Houston Edition: Rudy’s Country Store and Bar-BQ”

Houston Edition: Shipley’s Do-Nuts

This is not the first time, nor will it be the last time, that I blog about donuts. I mean, who doesn’t love donuts?! They’re perfect pillows of doughy, sweet goodness! Texas definitely didn’t fail to provide me with delicious donut options when I visited.

After deciding to take a last-minute trip to Texas to visit friends and go on food adventures, we picked up some Shipley’s before we headed out on a road trip to Austin. Not only does Shipley’s do donuts, they also have these delicious creations called kolaches (found all over Texas!) which are soft, fresh buns filled with smoked sausage and cheese.  Continue reading “Houston Edition: Shipley’s Do-Nuts”

New Orleans Edition: Central Grocery

Location: 923 Decatur Street New Orleans, LA 70116

I’m not one for tourist traps or eating at the most famous places when travelling. I used to do that and found it overrated and that as a place gets more famous, the food becomes subpar. That’s what made going to Central Grocery a risk for me. EVERYONE told me I had to go while I was in New Orleans and it was only coincidence (as in I was hungry and close to the place and nothing else was open) that brought Central Grocery and I together. Continue reading “New Orleans Edition: Central Grocery”

Philadelphia Edition: La Colombe

Location: 130 South 19th Street Philadelphia, PA 19103

La Colombe. La Colombe. La Colombe.

If you’re looking for some of the best coffee you may drink in your entire life, this is the place. I know it’s a bold statement, but it’s a true one. I have loved this place for years and that feeling hasn’t diminished over time. This is the coffee standard I hold all other coffee places to.  Continue reading “Philadelphia Edition: La Colombe”

Philadelphia Edition: White Dog Cafe

Location: 3420 Sansom Street Philadelphia, PA 19104

It was a sunny  morning and a lot of people were out and about brunching and relaxing. My friends and I were looking for somewhere local to eat (as per usual) and we came across White Dog Cafe. I’d heard of this place from some friends before, so brunch was the perfect opportunity to check it out.

The menu had quite a few items on it that sounded appealing to me, but I settled on the Lancaster City 3-Egg Omelette. I was also quite happy that they served La Colombe coffee (a personal favorite of mine, but we’ll get to that in another post)! Continue reading “Philadelphia Edition: White Dog Cafe”

Philadelphia Edition: Capogiro

Location: 117 South 20th Street Philadelphia, PA 19103

Capogiro is a sweet treat that I would pretty much devour under any conditions. I’ve eaten it in 20 degree weather and in the full blast of the hot summer sun. There are no limits to my gelato consumption, especially from this place!

Capogiro and I had a short but meaningful love affair back in 2013 when I interned a couple of blocks away. When I came back to visit one of my best friends in the city, I knew I needed to get reacquainted.  Continue reading “Philadelphia Edition: Capogiro”

St. Louis Edition: Gooey Louie

Location: 6483 Chippewa Street St. Louis, MO 63109

So I want to start by saying that I had never heard of gooey butter cake until I visited St. Louis. Apparently this is a thing? Well, I’m the adventurous type and gooey butter cake sounds delicious, so sign me up!

I asked around and got a recommendation for Gooey Louie, especially since I felt like this would have to be the one thing to bring back home ( I don’t think ribs travel too well). I got to the small store location and walked in only to be greeted by one of the friendliest men I’ve met, and that’s even by St. Louis standards.  Continue reading “St. Louis Edition: Gooey Louie”
