I get around Columbia a lot (cue your jokes here, please) but due to time and mostly budgetary restrictions, I haven’t eaten at all of the restaurants around town yet. In an effort to not leave a single one off, I wanted to round them up, and maybe get some suggestions on the order in which they should be eaten, though this list is in no particular order:
Baan Sawan– sometime in December. Cashed in a date night certificate.
Pasta Fresca– delicious, more fresh tasting than I was craving that particular day. will try again soon! brunch at 300 Senate– no longer available
- 2108 State Street (brunch and/or dinner)
- Solstice Kitchen & Wine Bar
Wine Down on Main (admittedly not a place to EAT but still, I gotta)Tiny little place to relax and have a glass with a close friend or two. They also carry Evolution Through Chocolate truffles and omg, try the red wine syrup truffle. Worth every single cent.
- brunch at Good Life Cafe
- fresh doughnuts from College Grounds Cafe
- Cafe Chartier
My goal is to get through all of these by the end of the year. Are you a Columbia food blogger and want to organize a group meet up at one of these places? Holla at me if you want to grab a bite to eat or organize, clearly we have options on where to go! This seems like a perfect way to organize my fall social calendar. Claim a restaurant, we’ll make a date. Emily R, this means u. Mr. Pblake, your wife would like a nice date night too. Jenn R, Solstice is near ya house. This calling out people is fun.
