It’s been a bit rainy in Tallahassee lately, but Andy and I still managed to make it out for brunch and errands this past weekend. Since we were feeling a bit adventurous, we decided to try out a place that someone had recommended to us, The Hideaway. Attached to the back of our local tiki bar Waterworks, the hideaway offers a bright cozy atmosphere and breakfast and lunch from 7am-5pm Monday-Friday and brunch from 9am-5pm on the weekends.
Unfortunately, we weren’t able to take advantage of the adorable patio area because the skies opened up shortly after this picture was taken. The interior was bright and airy, and the staff were quick to help us figure out seating and how to order. Everything is ordered and paid for at the counter and then delivered to the table; the beverage menu is on the back wall and the food menus are located in stands by the register. After placing our orders, we hopped up onto the stools at one of the tall tables and sipped on our chai lattes while our food was being prepared.
Our food came out right away, and we chatted and shared our way through the meal, like we do, and before you knew it, our plates were clean and our mugs empty.
Andy opted for the “Smothered Biscuits & Eggs”, and I went for the “Lox Benedict”. Personally I think I won the “who’s meal was better” award, but he said with a bit more spice mine wouldn’t have had a chance. Our chai’s were both nice and perfect for the weather.
Afterwards, Andy and I both agreed that we will be adding this place to our rotation. The food was good, the vibe was super low key, the staff were friendly and helpful, and you gotta love a good local hidden gem. I can’t wait to go back and try one of their famous waffles next time around.

Happy Monday everyone! I finally downloaded the most recent batch of photos from my camera; the majority of which were taken when my mom was visiting for her birthday. While she was here, we took a day trip across the border to Thomasville, Georgia which has a small, but eclectic, downtown full of quirky shops and eateries. After trying a few of these places out last year we knew exactly where we wanted to take Mom for Saturday brunch, this great little place right off main street called Liam’s . Liam’s was also part of the 12 new restaurants I tried last year for my 26 before 27. They recently had revamped their menu, and i’ll admit I was a little afraid that the bloom might have gone off the rose, but the food was incredible as always.
Did you see the two giant cups of coffee? Scroll back up, I’ll wait…..yeah, those aren’t cups they’re bowls. Allow me to introduce the Rude Awakening, three shots of espresso, two tablespoons of sugar and steamed milk. Definitely does the trick, I was so wired it felt like the hair on my arms was standing up.
