My name is Caitland, but everyone calls me Caity. That’s C-A-I-T-Y, not Katie, not Katy, not Kaity, not Catie, nor Caty. If you misspell it, you will suffer the consequences.
Anyhow, I met my husband in the fall of 2005 when I went away to a little college called Mercer University in the ghetto town of Macon, GA. We were friends at first, and friendship blossomed into love, and we’ve been inseparable since (except for that long distance relationship thing for a year). In April 2012, I followed my husband to Charleston, SC and I took a job as a marketing assistant for a commercial real estate firm.
Including the job, a lot has changed in the last four months. Moving to a new city has been difficult for the simple fact that I’ve left behind family, friends, favorite restaurants, favorite shops, and many other wonderful things. Now that I’m in a new place, I have to make new friends, find new favorites, but it’s the journey not the destination that counts! So here I am to blog my way through delicious cuisines and talk shop (literally)!
To start you off with my own personal adventures, I will tell you about my favorite Charleston restaurant–my tried and true staple– Lost Dog Cafe. I could eat here every day of the year, and I would NEVER tire of it (except maybe the one to two hour wait in the summer months). From the bagels to the quesadilla to the French toast to the BEST biscuits and gravy, I have never had a bad meal, or even a mediocre meal.
I even love this restaurant so much that I bought a T-shirt. A T-Shirt people. If that’s not commitment, I don’t know what is.
When you go to Lost Dog, you won’t find fancy decor or top of the line wine glasses, you’ll find wall to wall dog photos and Mason jars. But who really cares about the decor?
If you pay a visit to Lost Dog, here’s what I recommend: Biscuits & Homemade Sausage Gravy, Society Street French Toast with Fresh Strawberries, Quesadillas for the Hungry Dog, and the Pimento BLT ain’t so bad either!
Or, if you’re feeling lucky, close your eyes, and randomly point at the menu. I swear, no matter what it is you land on, you’ll love!
