Thanks to Emerson of An Apple a Day, we stopped at Back in the Day Bakery on our one day tour of Savannah. The bakery was darling but I got so caught up in discussing their wallpaper that I forgot to take a picture of it!
One of their walls was decorated with vintage paper put up in patches. It reminded me of some the plantations we visited in Charleston, where you could still see spots of their original wallpaper.
The sandwiches, served on vintage trays, didn't last long. Mr. M ordered the Madras Curry Chicken while I ordered the Rosemary Chicken Salad. Both sandwiches had large chunks of savory chicken nestled in chewy fresh baked bread.
We took our cupcakes to Forsyth park so we could eat them by the fountain. As we sat down on a bench and started munching a squirrel crept up towards us. Mr. M had to keep shooing him away and all of a sudden Mr. M says, "he is next to you." I didn't look because the squirrel had been circling around us the whole time. And then Mr. M says, "no, I mean he is right next to you!"
I jump up and that little guy was apparently getting ready to hijack the cupcake right out of my hands. He then raises his paws and starts begging which starts me giggling and almost choking on the cupcake(which I was not going to give up).
If you get a chance to eat in Savannah, this is where you need to go. The cupcakes are creamy rich perfection and I ate all three pink ones myself.
