The Pink Dipper serves up a tasty blast from the past

If you’re looking for a great place to get ice cream-you must check out the Pink Dipper, located in North Augusta, SC.

In the heart of downtown North Augusta is this cute ice cream parlor that has been around for more than thirty years, and still serving some of the best cold treats in town today!

They offer a variety of ice cream and specialty treats.  I remember coming to this ice cream shop as a child, and still enjoy it today! There is nothing like a hometown ice cream shop on a beautiful sunny spring day! Make sure you take the kids-they will enjoy the old time ice cream parlor feel and all the treats as well!

Rhinehart’s – It’s Beyond Casual

This casual seafood restaurant is by far one of my favorite places to eat in Augusta, and one of the most unique “hole in the wall” places to visit! Don’t let the run down beach shack feel scare you from the outside-because it is truly one of Augusta’s gems!

Rhineharts gives you that casual, laid back, beach good feeling! They have the BEST fried shrimp-I think it’s even better than at the beach! They have a variety of wonderful seafood on their menu such as oysters, po boys, crab legs, fish and so much more. They also have other varieties of food, such as the best hamburger and homemade french fries in town!

They offer specials everyday for lunch and dinner-my personal fave is their Monday night special, $2.99 dozen boiled shrimp-you can’t beat the price or the taste anywhere!

Dining is inside or outside-however I recommend sitting outside at the picnic tables and enjoying this beautiful spring weather in Augusta! Take the entire family and friends and enjoy this great atmosphere, food, and fun!

PI Bar and Grill

It was such a busy and fun filled weekend that when Sunday rolled around no one felt like cooking . The solution to this problem? The prestigious Partridge Inn’s PI Bar and Grill’s Sunday Brunch! It has been voted Best Brunch in Augusta by its residents for several years and held onto its title in 2010. It’s both  impressive and delicious!

The atmosphere of the Partridge Inn is incomparable to any other place in Augusta. It is located in the beautiful and historic Summerville neighborhood and sits on a hill, which offers a stunning view of Downtown Augusta.

It offers traditional breakfast  foods such as: bacon, sausage, biscuits and gravy and grits.

There is even an omelet station where a chef will make your omelet any way you would like it!

Because the Partridge Inn is known for its southern cuisine, homemade macaroni and cheese and collard greens can be found on the buffet! And I must admit, these dishes rival my grandma’s collards and macaroni and cheese, and that  is not an easy feat in my opinion.

They also have fresh fruit  and various fresh salads.

Fresh shrimp and mussels are also on the buffet.

And also desserts! Try some cheesecake, pecan pie or various fruit cobblers.

 Not the mention the live entertainment created the perfect atmosphere.

The PI Bar and Grill not only offers a fabulous Sunday Brunch, but has several other specials during the week. Including live Jazz entertainment on Friday nights with free cover, martini Mondays, Wine Down Wednesdays and more. Not to mention it serves breakfast, lunch buffet and dinner daily.

La Dolce Vita Salon and Spa in downtown Augusta, Georgia

I know it might seem weird to blog about where you get your hair cut, but it is such a fun experience at La Dolce Vita Salon and Spa in downtown Augusta, Georgia -  I thought, what the heck? Sometimes you just might want to be pampered when you are in Augusta and this is a fun place to do just that.

La Dolce Vita Salon and Spa in located on Broad St. Within walking distance of plenty of shops and restaurants. Also within walking distance of the City Conference City and the Augusta Riverwalk along the Savannah River.

The Salon has a great mix of old and new. The walls show the exposed brick that look as if they survived the great Augusta fire of 1916. The floors also look like the original wood plank floors from the turn of the century. But of course then there is the mix of funky music and modern art.

La Dolce Vita Salon and Spa actually even has its own philosophy. “To create an environment where our stylists can embrace their individual artistic spirits while providing you with the excellent customer service you deserve. Our pride is in the community we serve and we lead our business with one basic truth: our team + our clients…our family.”

I have not made it yet to the spa…but Mother’s Day is coming.
