Clary’s is one of those places where both Savannah tourists and locals meet, which for the most part is a pretty terrific thing.
Serving up no-nonsense, hearty and traditional southern fare, Clary’s Cafe is a must see/eat for anyone visiting the beautiful city of Savannah; and of course looking for an excellently authentic and filling meal. It’s nothing fancy here but it does everything it needs to do in spades, serving up what this Tampa native can only call the best breakfast I’ve ever had.
Terrific pancakes served along-side perfectly thick-cut and cooked crispy bacon, buttery salty grits, fluffy buttermilk biscuits and perfectly fried sausages; what’s not to not like? Lunch is equally
good, serving some of the best burgers to be found in all of Savannah and at reasonable prices.
The staff here is friendly too, an impressive feat given the bustling nature of the eatery. Servers, cooks and prep staff are constantly buzzing about the tight quarters seeing to the needs of their patrons all the while smiling and offering the cordial greeting or good morning to the dining denizens both local and tourist alike. A true homage to the hospitality capitol of the South, Clary’s manages to provide a warm and friendly place where even the most hardened cynic big-city
dweller will feel at home, relaxed and above all well fed.
I suppose I should also mention the cool factor; Clary’s was featured in “Midnight of the Garden of Good and Evil”, so be prepared to bask in the ambiance left over from the film’s effect on the town. A living breathing icon from another more laid back era, Clary’s Café serves as a testament to the dynamic nature of Savannah and to the resiliency of local owned and operated establishments in this town…well worth your visit!
