First up today is Clary’s, the semi-famous cafe where scenes from Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil were filmed back in the late nineties. Along with the knowledge that you’re sitting in an active part of Savannah’s history, Clary’s is known for their oldschool, southern style plates of pancakes, eggs, grits, and anything else you’re craving from that classic diner location.

Hours never change at Clary’s so come on down any day from 8 am – 2 pm and see what all the fuss is about. Don’t let the large crowd fool you, their service is so fast you won’t even notice.

Foxy Loxy

This particular restaurant and art studio is made up of three parts, coffee, Tex-Mex food, and baked goods. Locally crafted creative pieces line the walls regularly and you may even recognize their semi-famous “I Heart Foxy” stickers laying up for grabs on the counter. Everyone knows that you’re not a local resident of Savannah’s historic district until you’ve slapped one of those bad boys on a laptop or bicycle. From 8 am – 9 pm every day (closed at 4 pm on Sundays), you can pair your cup of locally roasted coffee (or a glass of wine) with Tex-Mex style burritos and sit in their courtyard.
