Picking up breakfast for my staff.
Grabbing lunch for my staff. :)
Taco time! :)
It's been too long since my last Torchy's Taco.
Meeting lunch...at one of my favorite spots. :)
(The above are from my quick tips) and I haven't checked in everytime I've gone, but this is my favorite location. The guys here are always super cool and the food is always fabulous. You can order online and skip the line if you're in a hurry for to go orders.
If anyone ever asked me if I want Torchy's the answer is always "absolutely".
Hopdoddy, if you were a man, I wouldn't be single anymore. :) I am in love with the Ahi Tuna Burger. No matter how long the line is I will wait for you - in the heat, the rain, the snow - anything! Dangerous now that there is a location off of Anderson Lane. I used to consider it a treat to go to Soco and visit you, but now you're a little too close for comfort. I may need to detour my driving route to work before I become obsessed and wonder who are all those other people you are spending time with when I can't be there.
I have dreams about his place. Waffle Dreams. Yum.
I love the coffee here, too, and the staff have always been top notch. I tried their vegetarian breakfast sausage my last visit and was impressed. My friends always get the chicken and waffles, and I have never heard anyone complain. Oh, and give the mac and cheese a try! You won't be disappointed.
This is one of my favorite places to hang out. The coffee's always good and it's got a cool vibe. There's usually a line, but it moves pretty quickly, and before you know it, you're on your way to find a cool spot on the deck next to the water. Sometimes they have live music, usually just acoustic, but it adds to the laid back vibe.
The apple pie is REALLY good here. :)
Parking in the lot can be challenging, but there's a lot across the street that's easy to get to. I've actually been pretty luck most times I've been there, and was able to get street parking or parking in the lot.
This is one of my favorite spots for brunch. I've taken work clients, girlfriends and dates here and have always been delighted with the food, service and atmosphere. I've only been here once where there was an extensive wait, but I took advantage of the beautiful hotel and took my guest on a small tour.
No matter what time of day, I always order the 1886 cake. Most desserts these days tend to be very heavy, but this cake that is made from the original recipe from 1886 is light and delicious. I've also enjoyed the Eggs Benedict along with a mimosa for brunch. Never disappoints.
I've been hooked on paddle boarding this summer, and The Rowing Dock makes it easy to get a quick fix on the lake.
The parking lot is small, but I've been lucky enough to get parking there every time I've gone. They have small bins where you can leave your shoes and things, unlike the other place on the lake that you have to just leave them lying around.
I've only been there once where they said that there was a 30 minute wait, but it ended up only being 10 minutes, so don't get discouraged.
I don't know why I like this place so much. I guess because after a night on the town, it's got a comfy feel to it. Nothing fancy, but like I said, comfy. The mushroom omelette is one of my faves, along with the infamous dutch baby. Good tip - the Dutch Baby takes about 25 minutes to cook. Better to order it as you get seated if you want to save time. ;-)
