in brunch, restaurant, salads, travel

My press schedule got rearranged today, so Abe and I decided to take a little break from SXSW stuff.

We headed to South Congress Cafe for brunch:

I’ve been here once, years ago. It’s on South Congress next door to the famous boot shop:

There was a really long wait. They were slammed!  (If you follow me on twitter you’ll see I had a funny experience with the table next to me from Groupon.)

Complimentary cornbread muffins! We each had 2.5 for an even split.

Although their hearty brunch dishes looked amazing, we both just wanted salads.

I got the Beet one sans cheese – with grilled tri tip so they gave me a scary knife:

I traded non beefy bites with Abe, who got the special, a Greek one:

These were some of the best salads I’d ever eaten – and you guys know I consume A LOT of them. The dressings were flavorful, the veggies were crisp and fresh, and the meat was tender n juicy.

Afterwards we drove further down SoCo to do some laundry:

I heart laundromats. I haven’t been to one in so long that I was surprised they now have free wifi! Makes sense.

After we fluff n fold we head back to the Convention Center for more film fest madness! See ya later!

That’s a serious knife. You should have posed the part of serial killer in that pic :)

This sounds kinda weird but I loooove running past laundromats for the clean laundry smell!

And I am craving for a hearty salad now after seeing your pics.
