I recently made my first visit to Parsons to experience Pickin in Parsons.
While there, I wanted to check out the local fare.
Piccolo Paula's Caffe is a very cute cafe that has soups, sandwiches, salads -- and more!
The interior has lots of twinkly lights, local crafts and a fun mix of decor.
The special on this day was a crab bisque with garlic cheese ciabatta. Yes, please!
When they said a large bowl, they weren't joking! But, it hit the spot on a rainy day! And I could've spent hours here just people-watching and relaxing.

My first time flying out of Charleston had me a bit on edge. I've really only flown from large airports, so I was cautious.
But my fears were put to ease when I saw a Tudor's Biscuit World IN THE AIRPORT. I'm sure not too many places can claim that.
And since I've tried most of the Tudor's in the Charleston area at this point, the airport was no exception.
And, I'll tell you what. This may be the fluffiest biscuit I've had yet. I'm looking forward to my next trip - if for no other reason than I will be sure to stop here as part of tradition now.

Cafe Appalachia is a new restaurant -- and concept -- in South Charleston.
From their Facebook: "A pay what you can, farm to table, lunch buffet and coffee house that serves the general public and provides job training for a hand up and not a hand out."
The restaurant has a set buffet menu each day, and you can choose large or small portions.
On the day I went, they had pasta - with or without meat sauce - so I went without because it was a delicious garlic basil sauce.
The sides were salad, bread and rice pudding for dessert. This was a large size to-go.
Have you been yet?

The Sawmill Restaurant is one I've passed in Davis for many years.
This homey restaurant also has rooms and cottages to rent overnight.
Once I made my way through the front door, and up the stairs, I knew I was in the right place when I smelled the bacon sizzling.
The menu has many classic breakfast dishes, but the bowl caught my eye.
It is a bed of home fries, eggs, gravy, cheese and biscuit. For someone indecisive, this pretty much gave me everything. So it was perfect.
What's your favorite dish here?

There's just something fun about an old-school, classic steakhouse.
Muttley's in Davis is just that.
The menu highlights those steaks and even does a special on Thursdays.
This is one of those places where folks come on every special occasion, as it was clear the folks knew the customers well. That was sweet.
I started with some of the fresh bread.
And a small house salad with this delicious garlicky dressing.
Then, the black peppercorn filet. This is two 4 oz. tenderloins over a light blue cheese and Worcestershire mix.
And, when blackberry cobbler is on the menu, it's tough to pass up!
A la mode is the only way!
