The Final Countdown

When we heard, we cried a little inside. No more carrot cake at Thanksgiving. No more red velvet at Christmas....

Unless you order now and freeze it for later! If you're a huge fan of VeryVera casseroles and cakes and you just can't live without them, then make sure you order before June 26th! Orders can be placed online at www.veryvera.com .

Vera shows off her signature icing technique for Atlanta planners and writers in 2011.

Vera will be taking at least a year off from her restaurant and catering business to work on a cookbook (which we're sure is going to be fabulous!) and we can't wait to get our hands on it. Fingers crossed that she re-opens a cafe in 2014! Bobby Flay better watch out - because with a year to perfect all of her recipes, Vera may just want to "throw down" again!

If you're in town before June 26th, make sure you stop by Vera's Cafe for lunch!

The Cotton Patch

Last week I was craving a huge burger around lunchtime, so my friends and I decided to head out downtown for lunch. I couldn’t remember the last time I’d eaten at The Cotton Patch, so we decided to give it a try.  The Cotton Patch has been a fixture in downtown for as long as I can remember.  They are in the heart of downtown, right off Reynolds Street and within walking distance from a lot of business and attractions, like Riverwalk.

My De-licious Burger & Fries

Our server Nick was really friendly and took great care of us. I chose a Signature Handmade Burger with fries and it did not disappoint.  It was cooked perfectly and with plenty of extra pickle spears for me.  My friends had chicken & dumplings, fried green tomatoes, a fried catfish sandwich, and chicken fingers, so we had a wide variety of foods at the table to try.

Chicken & Dumplings

Fried Green Tomatoes

Fish Sandwich with Fries

Everything was delicious and served pretty quickly.  We made it in and out of the restaurant in less than an hour, which is very important for a lunch restaurant! If only we had time for 2 hour lunches…

All in all it was a great experience and I’d recommend it to anyone looking for a quick, tasty, casual lunch in downtown Augusta.
