Brooklyn's Backyard

As an avid visitor of New York, I was hesitant to visit a restaurant called "Brooklyn's Backyard" in Ocala. After doing my regular foodie review research, I decided to give it a try. It is now my go-to spot! They aren't kidding with their tag-line: Great beer. Better food.

Do you love cheese as much as I do? Then you MUST try the fried cheese bites. They are beyond.

And on a healthier note (well, sort of), I got the gluten-free pizza. It was amazing!

And now for the award winner...the burger!  (and it's enough for 2 people if you a girl)

GREAT FOOD and GREAT ATMOSPHERE, a must when you are in Ocala!

And on Sundays they offer bottomless mimosas and bloody marys, if you're into that!

Leftovers Cafe, Jupiter, Florida

On top of the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse
 If you looking for a fun Florida weekend trip, I highly recommend a visit to Jupiter, located in Palm Beach County. I went to take care of a friend and had incredible food, and an amazing time visiting the lighthouse. 

I had the pleasure to eat at Leftover Cafe in Jupiter, Florida during lunch. The staff at Leftovers was very friendly and they automatically told me what the house favorites were, without even having to ask.

I ordered the crowd pleaser- Sweet Potato Crusted Fish over green beans, greens, tomatoes, apples, carrots, red grapes, onions and keylime garlic dressing. It sounded like an odd combination, but it was ridiculously good!
