Bonnie Blue

I love surprises. Today, I experienced a very pleasant surprise. On our way to have lunch at Cafe Nicoise in Old Town Winchester we passed by Bonnie Blue. I was instantly typing the name into my phone so I would remember to try it in the future.

Through an unfortunate chain of events we abandoned our lunch at Cafe Nicoise.  Hungry and curious, we went to Bonnie Blue. What a fantastic surprise!  I feel like they found all of my favorite foods, prepared them to perfection, and put them in a cozy, casual atmosphere. They source local ingredients when possible, and everything is house made.  We shared the shrimp and grits and fried oysters. We also had macaroni and cheese, collard greens, and slaw on the side. Then, we finished our feast with a chocolate chip cookie and a snicker doodle  As someone who meticulously counts calories, I can say every bite was worth it, and I can't wait to go back and have some more deliciously naughty food.

When I finished eating, I told my husband that I think this place brings out my Southern side. All I could think was that I was as happy as a pig in mud. If you don't know, that's really, really happy. I'm so glad our lunch plans didn't work out and we got to experience this lovely surprise.
