Granada Gossip

September 25, 2009

Low season is truly upon us, and the streets of Granada are pretty quiet. Now is the time to visit some of your favorite places or add some new ones to your repertoire.

How about breakfast? The Voodoo is now offering breakfast daily and they have great gravy and biscuits as well as many other good ‘ole American favorites.

Zoom Bar is serving breakfast Thursday-Sunday, and they have a Zoom version of Eggs Benedict you have to try. The Garden Café is also serving up breakfast with good food and great coffee.

I have unofficially been taking a poll on who has the best burgers in town and, by far, The Road House has been the favorite. I have also had reports that El Club has a good burger, which they serve during lunch Thursday-Sunday, and I intend to check it out very soon.

While not a burger place, El Garage, on Calle Corrales, has a fabulous Tandori Chicken Sandwich that you must try.

If you are looking for good food and great art, check out the new restaurant Café de Artistas located on Calle Guzman. It is a very nice space for both lunch and dinner with prices that won’t take a bite out of your wallet.

The Jardin de Orion Restaurant located on Calle Camito is a great place for happy hour and dinner. They offer half-price drinks from 5 to 7 p.m., plus they have a delicious appetizer tray for only $6.50. The space is beautiful with comfortable seating, a nice garden and the service is good.

The Granada lending library, Puedo Leer, has opened two additional reading rooms in Granada. One is located at the corner of Martirio and Calle Arsenal and the second is at the Hotel Con Corazon.

The children are not able to check the books out in these locations but they are welcome to come in, browse and read.

Make sure and drop by the La Calzada Centro de Arte and see their new look. There is some amazing art for sale, great mosaic pieces, posters and more. While you are there, stop by the newly expanded Olé Boutique and see their new Home Furnishings section where you can find everything from bed coverings to towel bars.
