Local Eats: Shea’s Café & Bakery

Ok, so far I’ve been to this place twice now (I know, I am slow at blogs lately!!!) and have loved it both times!  I was voted best breakfast blah blah something or another but a local paper.  Whatever!  Friends told me it was good and I should go.  So I went.

First time there, we arrived on a Sunday around noon and oh my

Local Eats: Bobby Chez

Yesterday,we we pressed for time during dinner since we were still out doing errands. We tried just hitting Applebee’s since it was nearby but there was a 30 minute wait at 4:30PM! OMG! No way were we waiting for that so we headed toward our next errand and tried to think of places along the way. We realized we hadn’t been to Bobby Chez

Locals Eats: Thai Basil

This week’s stop as Thai Basil with some friends.  It was so hard to find!!!  It is in a shopping center that I am familiar with and we could hardly find it and here is why:

We drove around the whole place so confused.  I actually tried to scout it out on an earlier date and couldn’t find it!  My friend in the

Bar Hopping

OK this is going to be a quick post because Rob and I need to get on with our day!  Last night, we were meeting friends in AC for drinks.  We decided we would make a date out of it and go to dinner.  Rob knows I really like PF Changs and he is ok with their food so that is where we went.  I

Local Eats: Peter’s Diner

This was from last weekend.  We often stop at this diner on the way home from Philadelphia because it is along the back way home.  We usually stop in there pretty late then but this time we decided to meet a friend for breakfast on Saturday on our way to Ikea (in Philadelphia).  Its been pretty good every time I’ve gone and the service

Local Eats: Formica Brothers Bakery Cafe (Northfield)

Note: The Northfield location of Formica Brothers Bakery has closed since the date of this post. Their original location in Atlantic City is still going strong!

I love Formica Brother’s. I don’t go here nearly enough. It is just as it says, a bakery. You walk in, surrounded by amazing breads and pastries, temptation at every turn! I actually stopped here twice in one week!

Local Eats: Gourmet Italian Cuisine

This week has been crazy.  Rob and I went to this restaurant a few days ago.  We love going here but its a little out of the way for us so we don’t go often.  It just has nice atmosphere.  Think upscale bar.  We always sit in the lounge/bar area and not the main dining room.  We also had our rehearsal dinner for our

Local Eats: Cheese Board

Today’s stop was my favorite lunch place ever!  I don’t go here nearly enough honestly.  It is just never near where I am so I have to make an effort to go.  Anyway, I was really craving an fancy sandwich so we decided to head over.  Rob wasn’t hungry so he didn’t care where I wanted to eat!

You order at the deli counter
