The locals in Savannah know the best spots to visit for a bite to eat, and even the national crowd is beginning to catch on as various travel and food shows have visited the Hostess City recently. Regionally, an Alabama-based publication visited Savannah and crafted their own "foodie guide" to the city with many of those local and national favorites cropping up again.

Birmingham Magazine, in association with, posted their foodie's guide to Savannah recently and listed favorite spots such as Back in the Bakery, Leopold's Ice Cream and The Grey. The post separated the Savannah spots into seven categories: A Bright Start, Mid-Day Fuel, Snack Time, Happy Hour, Suppertime, Work Up An Appetite and Rest Your Head. The last two are more directed to the spots to visit or stay in Savannah rather than dining options.


To start the day, the magazine recommended Clary's Café or Back in the Day Bakery with a stop at The Crystal Beer Parlor, the Forsyth Park Farmer's Market and the 700 Kitchen Cooking School at the Mansion on Forsyth Park as a perfect mid-day break. Follow it up with a snack at Leopold's and a happy hour drink at The Olde Pinke House, Jen's & Friends or Artillery Bar, and it is a solid day already, according to the magazine. As for supper, they recommended Elizabeth on 37th, The Grey or The Wyld should give you the perfect food experience.

Outside of eating, the magazine recommends a stay at The Mansion on Forsyth Park along with visits to E.Shaver's Bookseller, the Flannery O'Connor Childhood Home and Museum, The Cathedral of St. John the Baptist or catching all of the work done by students of the Savannah College of Art & Design. Also, don't forget those "Midnight" stops.
