I found myself this morning walking around downtown Southern Pines looking for a quick breakfast and StumbleUpon café known for its desserts. Little did I know that they also serve breakfast all day. This allowed me to finish my photoemission and return later to enjoy the most wonderful breakfast croissant before driving back home. The sausage egg and cheese croissant was one of the best that I’ve ever eaten.

Hot Italian

11 March 2016 in Delicious!

Toscani’s Pizzeria was a happening place today during lunch.   Regardless of the crowd, the wait time was minimal.  My cheese manicotti arrived steaming hot surrounded by garlic bread.   

 They are


open Monday and Tuesday 11am-8pm, Wednesday and Thursday 11am-9pm, Friday and Saturday 11am-10pm, and Sunday 11am-8pm. Toscani Pizzeria is a family-owned Italian restaurant located in the heart of downtown Fort Wayne. They’re just a short walk from Parkview Field, the Embassy, Downtown businesses, hotels, and events. Join them for lunch or dinner 7 days a week. They want to serve you well. They accept reservations for any day and time (except Thanksgiving eve). If you have a party of 4 or more, you will be seated sooner if you call ahead. Remember, the food is prepared and cooked when you order and sometimes that can take longer than a fast-food restaurant. If you are in a hurry, please let your server know – we can help you decide what’s best to choose from the menu. Their specialty is pizza, but they also serve pastas, sandwiches and salads. They have been told that they have the largest sausage roll in town. For the lighter appetite, they created a smaller version, fondly called “the bambino”! Besides Coca-Cola products, they have many beers and wines for you to choose from.

Pattan’s Downtown Grille

18 April 2015 in Delicious!

I have been anticipating the grand opening of Pattan’s Downtown Grille for several months.  I have eaten Tim Pattan’s (owner and chef) food in the past and enjoyed every bite.

Award winning, Tim Pattan, prepares daily pork, beef and chicken entrees.   This nice addition to downtown Rockingham is going to be a new favorite of mine primarily because of the food, but I am also partial to the artwork throughout the restaurant.

Poor Richards of Manteo

10 April 2015 in Delicious!

Manteo, NC not only provides a nice walk with the camera.  There are a few restaurants offering a variety of items for the hungry traveler.

Poor Richards is on the top of my list of Manteo restaurants.

Today, I ordered the Philly Cheesesteak.  Of course I asked for extra cheese and they delivered.   One thing that stood out to my taste buds were the few sweet peppers added.   To-date, this is the best Philly Cheesesteak I have eaten.   I could have immediately ordered a second.



Monday thru Friday, 10;30-3pm Saturday 8am-3pm Sunday 11:30-3pm Bar opens each day at 5pm with full menuSince 1984, Poor Richard’s Sandwich Shop has been serving the Outer Banks and the Town of Manteo the finest breakfast and lunch available. We use only the highest quality meats and cheeses in our menu items and our signature daily specials. So, whether you are visiting the area or an old salt, come on in and experience a true Roanoke Island Landmark.

Located directly on the beautiful Manteo waterfront, we offer a stunning experience for the senses. Our nightly entertainment brings local talent from all over North Carolina and beyond.

Made to order is a great concept if you like hot, fresh, custom doughnuts.

My favorites were the Reese’s peanut butter, cinnamon and the unusual maple, bacon doughnut.

Duck Doughnuts is based in the OBX area of North Carolina.  However, there is one location in Cary, N.C.

Panera Bread.  My healthy choice.

4 April 2015 in Delicious!

Obviously, if you have read previously posted food pics, I am not a healthy eater.  Sometimes, I order a salad in my own attempt to eat a healthier than usual meal.

Today’s visit to Panera Bread in Aberdeen NC allowed me to make one of my healthy selections.  I even chose an apple!

If nothing else, their presentation was simple and, to me, low calorie.

I, once again, found myself at a seafood restaurant.   I hate not to order the seafood at some of these locations, because they appear to offer a quality entree.  However, I also do not want to waste food.  Therefore, I choose more turf than surf from the menu.  Fortunately for me Paula’s offers a great Filet grilled with garlic butter, served on scallion mashed potatoes with red wine sauce and grilled asparagus ( I don’t eat asparagus) and Caesar salad.

Paula’s on Main is a fine dining seafood restaurant that includes a lounge/bar with live entertainment and a seafood market.

I crave sweet tea!

18 March 2015 in Delicious!

I am glad that I live in North Carolina where Sweet Tea is a standard on most menus.  A recent trip to Indiana provided too many opportunities for me to have to dump tons of sweetener to improve the flavor of tea.

Needless to say, I was very happy when the Monroe, NC Olive Garden waitress brought me a cold glass of tea made the correct way.  It was a good day to return to NC.
