Dining Out On 30A

Usually when we are at Seaside, we spend a lot of time in the kitchen or cooking on the Big Green Egg, but this past weekend we enjoyed a lunch at Great Southern Cafe and a dinner at Borago.  For lunch, we brought along the kids.  But for dinner, it was adults only, and it was soooo nice!

Anytime we go to Great Southern, we sit on the side porch, which kind of creates our own little private, outdoor dining room.  The kids can bounce around without bothering the other patrons, and we can relax knowing everyone is happy.  As the name suggests, Great Southern Cafe is a modern take on traditional Southern food, and there is everything from burgers and fried fish to a lump crab "martini."

Borago has been a favorite of mine for at least twenty years.  In most cases, I get bored with a menu that never changes, but in the case of Borago, it's more of an "if it ain't broke" situation.  The dining room is big with not much character, but the screened in porch is delightful, and the atmosphere at the bar is great.  Everything was delicious, but I regret to report that the Tiramisu was devoured at such a fast rate of speed that there are no photographs!

    1. Thanks! I really like taking photos of food. My camera is about 5 yrs old, but it's a Canon T2i with just the kit lens, which I would really like to upgrade. Thanks for stopping by! Cheers, E
