Vikki & Huck's Favorite Eats/Drinks
There are lots of delicious places to eat in the Capitol City, but listed below are a few of our favorites!
This is one of our family favorites in Tallahassee. The cuisine is all vegan/vegetarian and prepared on site. Their entrees and brunches never disappoint! Even our meat loving father loves this place! They have a great selection of beers, homemade lemon ginger aide, and desserts as well. The staff is friendly, there are board games, pool table, outdoor seating, and nightly entertainment to boot! Also close to FSU, FAMU, and the art district, Railroad Square. Our favorite sandwich is the Tofu Bahn Mi - yummy!

This locally hamburger joint is not your average burger place - the toppings and sides range from All-American to what my hubby Huck calls "Healthy Hippie!" I love their milkshakes and quinoa salad. Our children love the fries and Huck loves the cheese burger - everyone wins!

Best kept secret in Tallahassee! Vikki lived in Tallahassee for twenty years before finding out about this small family-owned seafood restaurant. If you are looking for a real taste of fresh Florida Gulf of Mexico seafood, this is the place to go! Known for their oysters, Shell is a great place to kick back, relax, and enjoy some Southern sweet tea, hospitality and fresh seafood!

Hands down this is Vikki and Huck's favorite restaurant/bar/music venue in Tallahassee. The menu consists of dishes named after songs and musicians and the food is always excellent! The entertainment is diverse and fantastic and the atmosphere is fantastically funky! Definitely check this place out during your stay! In addition to grub, the bar is fully stocked and their original drinks are delicious too.

One of the best places in Tally for coffee, espresso, and homemade chai. They also have a handful of homemade meals that changes daily and there is often a vegan selection. The atmosphere is fun and the coffee shop is often filled with college students working on laptops. There are also two nice outdoor spaces to sit - one street side in front and a more secluded area in the back. Walking distance to many other bars, restaurants, Railroad Square art district, and both FSU and FAMU campuses.

Nestled directly under the upscale Edison restaurant and in the beautiful Cascades city park, this little coffee shop is Vikki's favorite place to relax outside and listen to the waterfall nearby. The coffee is delicious and the food is healthy and scrumptious! Highly recommend checking this place out and then taking a walk around Cascades park afterwards!

Cascades park is our favorite park in all of Tally!
