Books and Books

Yes, its a book store but the Cafe is great.  Its a must visit if you are in the gables, tho he also has locations at the Arsht Center, on the Beach and a few others.  Sitting on the Patio in the gables, enjoying a great sandwich, coffee and a really good dessert, surrounded by books and good people.  I love it here.

at Merrick park has become a new favorite.  Its so lovely to sit outside in a pretty though unnatural setting.  The food is great and varied, the service usually good tho never great. .  In my mind this is meant to be a relaxing place to waste away some time over good food with a good friend.

The Local

Logomakr_9igh41I was first to the Local with a group of six.. the perfect size group to eat there.  great sharing plates arrived one after the other and each was tasty.  You can also get a good burger, great Fries and i like the chicken dumpling soup.  On Giralda in the Gables.  Be cautioned- they have lunch hours, dinner hours, and an in-between hour where getting food isn’t necessarily easy.

The hardest part about never going back to a Wednesday night restaurant together is that sometimes you find a nice little one close to home, in the grove , that you know is good and you want to go again.  But time passes, you pass by every so often, say you will go back, but the rues of Wednesday night is we don’t go back together, so opportunities can be limited as most of my dining companions have other places in mind, or the drive is too long.  SO i haven’t been back.  Go for me.. tell me how it is .
