Lovely Atmosphere, Terrific Coffee!

Tucked into the heart of Forsyth Park, The Forsyth Park Cafe could not have a better view or a better atmosphere.  The interior of the cafe is sleek, modern and done in colors to coordinate with the park.  The spacious windows give you the feel of being outdoors even when you’re inside.  The outdoor area is partially open to the skies and partly covered.  All in all, the setting could not be improved upon.  And the coffe, all Starbucks, is delicious.  The food, however, seems on the dicey side.  A week or so ago, my husband and I shared a lamb gyro.  The gyro was downright delicious, and plenty for a hefty meal for two, although the resemblance between the gyro and its Middle Eastern forebears is that of a second cousin, twice removed.  But the lamb was young, tasty and tender….we were content.  Alas, we got another one a few days later and …there was a different cook.  The meat was overcooked, on the dry side, and the wrap had a vaguely stale flavor.  The next day, a friend told me she’d ordered a sandwich there that was supposed to have cheese on it and had some sort of processed cheese food.  “I’ll stick to coffee from now on,”  she said.  They do have beer and wine….maybe a bit of alcohol would have helped!

A Terrific Burger at Sunnyside Up!

Two of our foodie friends had lunch recently at Sunnyside Up (800 DeRenne).  Now we know that Sunnyside Up has great breakfasts–super-fresh eggs, heavenly hash browns, wonderful omelets.  But we’d never thought of them as a lunch spot. One of my friends reported “best burger I ever ate!”, and the other said his Tuna Club ws the best he’d ever eaten.  Sounds  worth a trip to us!

Caraway Cafe a Big Winner !

Doubt that I’ve ever eaten a heartier, heftier, more delicious sandwish than the Tuna Melt I had yesterday from the Caraway Cafe at 202 E. Broughton St. This was light years away from the tuna melt that normally is some run of the mill tuna salad with a slice of American cheese melted over it. Here was a thick slab of tuna steak, grilled to perfection, and placed on a ciabatta roll. Filled with chunks of artichoke hearts, an interesting aioli-style dressing, bits of green, and topped with Gruyère, and accompanied by a lavishly large artichoke heart  salad,  the whole plate fed two of us hungry people with a fair amount left over to take home.  Lunch just doesn’t get any better than this!

The Green Truck rolls into Thomas Square neighborhood

Two of my favorite food scouts came back from lunch yesterday with broad smiles.  They’d just been to the new Greentruck Pub at 2430 Habersham (right off Maupas) where they’d gobbled “GREAT!” burgers with hand fashioned fries and homemade ketchup and homemade pickles.  I perused the menu they brought…. and believe me, I’ll be there soon.  It’s all salads, sandwiches, burgers of every persuasion, soups, and such and sounds downright delicious.  And yes, there really is a green truck parked outside .
