This week we went to Blue Star Cafeteria. We drank our coffee, and I was jealous of his cheese grits. (But he’s the best so he shared with me.)
This past Saturday we went and got dinner with Ross, but it wasn’t just any dinner. It was a lobster dinner at Quality Seafood to take advantage of their Saturday special and it was quite delicious. We got there right before the crowd so were lucky enough to not wait long and grab a table to eat our lobster and fried okra. We will definitely be going back because how many places do you get to go where you get to play with your food before you eat it? If you want a lobster close-up, check out the girl’s lobster saying hello!
A very excited Ross to be reunited with his Maine lobster.
I put all these guys plus a whole bunch more into a big box together. I am sure they had a huge party. My shop is a little empty and lonely now, but I am looking forward to adding some new friends soon!
And if you are in Austin, you can find these little guys at the coffee/gift shop inside St. David’s near 8th and San Jacinto!
This was our white whale. South Congress Cafe. We have attempted to brunch there several times over the past couple months. Each time, the wait was 2 hours or more. Sometimes, if you wait 2 more hours to eat, it becomes a different meal by then.
But we finally did it! Only a 30 minute wait. I got the migas, and I don’t know what they did to them, but they were sooo good.
Its finally summer weather here in Austin. The all-encompassing heat has returned. I will miss the spring, and having to wonder if I needed a light jacket in the morning. From now on, I know that it will always be hot. But I am thankful for the sun, which I hope will give my skin enough color so I don’t blend in with my wedding dress.
Today the girl asked me on an ice cream date so we walked down to Amy’s Ice Cream because it is right next door and it was such a beautiful day in Austin.
Getting breakfast on weekends is one of my favorite things ever to do with my one true love. We occasionally try new places, but we have a couple favorites we go back to over and over again.
Since everyone in the world is coming to Austin, I just wanted to give a hint about 3 places you should NOT get breakfast, since I would like to eat there peacefully as usual.
