— Pauley’s Original Crepe Bar —

I had the chance to meet up with Virginia, a good friend of mine for Lunch today. Pauley’s in downtown Athens was our destination of choice since she had never been. When we sat down we started having a good chinwag and so it took us forever to order but when we did we, of course, over ordered.

We started with the Pesto Tartine (these are also good if you add chicken) however, I will say that the Chicken Tchoupitoulas are my favorite! You must try those if you go.

For mains my friend had a Ceasar salad and I had the roast beef crepe. With this we both shared the smashed potatoes (so good and such a good idea!) and the pesto pasta salad (I’m a huge fan of pesto if you cannot already tell – my husband says I could live off the stuff).

There was definitely no room for dessert but the smores crepe is amazing if you save room. I am also partial to the peanut butter crepe.

After our bellies were full we had a little wander around downtown where we found this guy!

After a few snaps we headed home with the promise of not waiting so long to see each other next time.

For those of you in Atlanta…keep an eye out because Pauley’s Atlanta opens soon! I cannot wait.

P.S. These boots are sooo comfortable and versatile. I love that you can dress them up or down and that they are a bit different…definitely a great piece and one that I have worn a lot. They come in a bunch of different colours in the suede and then also in a smooth black leather.

Being from England and living in America (especially the South) has its obstacles; you can’t get good Pimms, you can’t have a classic rainy, cold ‘summer’ BBQ and you certainly can’t go for a stroll on the Heath! However, now you can have some good ‘ole pub food and The Royal Peasant fits the bill!

This small British Pub tucked away in the heart of Five Points is where you will find everything from half pints to crisps to bangers and mash….as well as some fish and chips! What more could a Brit ask for?!

The other afternoon my husband and I headed over there for a late lunch on my day off. We both had the Burger and a salad to share. I also recommend the house crisps, chicken curry and fish and chips (basically you can’t go wrong here!) While you are at it don’t forget to order a pint (of cider)…or half!

This is Corey’s mad face when I tell him I have to take a picture before starting!

I wore a dress I picked up a couple of weeks ago from Equipment. I love their stuff – it is so simple and comfortable, this dress especially because you can easily dress it up with these pumps (I wore this out for my husbands birthday back in May) or keep it casual for a pub lunch!

Stroll Around Downtown Athens

*LATE POST ALERT*

So this post is from way back before Christmas when the leaves were starting to change (as you will see from some of the pictures). A good friend of mine and myself headed downtown for lunch and also a nice wander around. She just got a new camera and so we also wanted to try it out! First shot was a mirror selfie!

We started off at Transmetropolitan for a late bite to eat.

My friend ordered one of their Calzones and I went with a Sicilian slice of the vegetarian pesto pizza. I can say we both had our bread intake for the week!

With full bellies we went for a stroll. It was such a nice day – blue skies, sun, and a crisp breeze! Here are some snaps from downtown Athens.

Finally, we made our way to Walker’s Pub for a coffee and a hot chocolate.

Right by Walker’s Pub is the best shoe repair place in Athens.

My friend had to drop off a pair of boots so we popped in quickly and while she handed them over I snapped a quick picture. When you get in there, shoes surround you! They are everywhere. However, they always do a great job and are very honest with you.

Some late minute outfit details are below.

A Taste of India

You do not see as many Indian restaurants in Georgia as you do England, but we do have one in Athens that is really good and does a GREAT lunch Buffet. A Taste of India does a lunch buffet from 11:30-2:30 Monday through Friday (12-3 Saturday & Sunday) that is one of my husband and I’s favourite place to go! It is not a huge buffet, it has about 4 different dishes, plus rice, naan, pakora and a salad bar, but the taste of the food is top notch and you do not really need any more options.

Outside

My husband and I decided to go there for a lunch a few days ago. We were having a late lunch and so we missed the lunch crowd and were the only ones in there. Just like the countless other times we have been there it did not disappoint. During Football season they lay the tables with UGA colours – red and black. The rest of the space is decorated with large elephants and pretty framed tapestries.

I had rice with chicken curry, vegetable pakora (fried vegetable fritters), dal makhani (lentils), and naan bread. It was all very delicious. They change up the dishes daily so you never know what you are going to get but I have never had anything there I did not like.

They also surprised us with some gulab jamun for dessert. Gulab Jamun is a milk dumpling that is soaked in rose flavoured sugar syrup. This is my husband’s favourite dessert there and again, like usual, it was great!

I kept it casual and comfortable and wore leggings. See more below:

I love these shoes because not only are they comfortable but they also give a “pop” to an outfit! The Zara leggings, as you can see from my other posts, are some of my favorites because they are a super thick, stretchy material. Lastly, I love Truly, Madly, Deeply tees because they are the perfect length to wear with leggings.
