The most popular restaurant in town is called the Magnolia Cafe, and after reading the very persuasive Yelp reviews, Dev, Kenzie and I decided to stop by for lunch. The place was packed! A spacious enclosed patio offered a few larger tables, but no air conditioning and a slow rotating fan. The 80% humidity and I were no getting along, so we opted for a mini two person table on the inside. Tight squeeze!
And what do the perfect southern women do upon sitting down at a restaurant? I picture them ordering sweet teas, glowing and dewy from the hot outside temperatures, ready to relax with girlfriends for a few hours. So that's exactly what we did.
Devin & I ordered a famous Muffaletto sandwich (which I pronounced mufahletta, and was quickly corrected), which was basically everything I've ever wanted in a sandwich. Holy olive & cheese overload! To think this was a HALF order of the sandwich. Which we split...and people order the entire thing for one person? How.
We also ordered a salad to split, which came with cheddar cheese. Another heavy helping of cheese? We decided to pass, and asked to hold that topping. The salad they brought us had a heavy topping of jack cheese instead. Haha! Oh southern eating, I'll never be able to keep up with you.
Exactly how I felt when we left.
