I must admit that I was sick of all the rain and gloomy January weather we’ve been having lately, but this weekend the temperatures have risen so dramatically, you’d swear we’ve already hit May. I, for one, enjoy chilly, winter weather, and I am trying to hang on to the littlest bit that we probably have left this year in Southern Louisiana. (To me, chunky sweaters > tank tops)
I spent the night in Baton Rouge this week to visit one of my oldest friends and her family since they will soon be moving away to Alabama. We woke up the following morning and had coffee on her back patio while watching her little girl, Evelyn, play around the yard. Afterwards, we all got dressed then headed out for a girls’ lunch and some shopping.
We planned on going to a favorite restaurant on Government St., but en route we passed Doe’s Eat Place, and it struck our eyes. On a whim, we decided to venture to somewheres new.
Doe’s is set in a quaint 1940′s Southern style house that originally served as a grocery store turned honky tonk turned restaurant and is best known for their quality steaks and world-famous hot tamales. For the full story on the interesting history of Doe’s, click here.
Although I should have ordered one of the two, I was not quite in the mood for a steak nor tamales, so I settled for the sliders (which turned out to be what I’d call two regular-sized hamburgers). Liz decided on the filet tips, and Evelyn chose macaroni & cheese.
Doe’s offers true, homestyle Southern cuisine, and if you’re in the mood for a decent steak or comfort food, then this is your place.
Before heading home, we stopped at Time Warp Boutique where I picked up a great pair of vintage Levi denim cut-offs, and Evelyn showed off pairs of retro shades.
