Wednesday was very much a "Spring during Winter" or "Sprinter" kind of day. So naturally Erica and I threw on our shorts and wedges and took to the streets that afternoon to enjoy the sunshine and slight breeze.this post, one of the "Things I'd Like to Do in 2014" was try at least 10 new restaurants this year. Well, I began my restaurant hopping yesterday by dining at the cute and quaint Kayak Kafé in downtown Savannah.

Kayak is a locally owned casual cafe located in prime real estate on Broughton Street.. Broughton being one of downtown Savannah's busiest streets for shopping, dining, and entertainment. Known for its fresh salads, paninis, and boasting the "Best Tacos in Town", Kayak is open daily for lunch and dinner.
I feasted on the Kayak club which was roasted chicken, applewood bacon, melted cheddar, sliced tomatoes, red onions, organic greens and herb mayo. Erica had the roasted turkey cubano, substituting the turkey for chicken, melted swiss, chipotle mayo, dill pickles, organic greens and added guacamole. Our sandwiches were served with cole slaw, a pickle, and an orange slice.
We both agreed the location was optimal as we'd dropped in after browsing a few shops downtown.
It was very casual and inviting. We opted to sit outside, people watch, and enjoy the weather.
Most items on the menu, salad, sandwiches, tacos, burritos were $8-$11 including a side.
We both agreed our paninis were excellent! The bread was toasted just right.The toppings were tasty and fresh. Our only complaint was that the roasted chicken was considerably dry and tasteless. The overwhelming flavor from the toppings made up for the lackluster chicken. But honestly, I would have enjoyed a great BLT without the chicken.
Overall, Kayak Kafé is definitely a win in our book. Possibly somewhere we will both revisit later in the future. It also came highly recommended by our friends Ashley and Alexis. Maybe the next time Lex is in town, we can all grab lunch here.
We ended our afternoon excursion by me grabbing a cup of joe at The Coffee Fox and hopping into Ghost Town Tattoo to inquire about possible ink later on this year.
