another Tallahassee favorite

Black Dog Cafe
229 Lake Ella Dr, Tallahassee, FL 32303
Decor gets an "Excellent", which includes the scenic "lake" view from the twinkling back patio covered in leafy vines. Sunset is the best time to visit, as this cafe has the most unique vibe of any cafe I've visited in Tallahassee; mostly because it's situated on the banks of a nicely sculpted pond with a showering fountain in the middle, where visitors and their furry children (pets, I mean) can stroll the circuitous sidewalk.

I'm always about their Italian Mango Soda (Club soda with a shot of mango syrup), but they serve a slew of coffee roasts and some teas (maybe lots of teas, but I never pay attention to their selection.)

Service is guaranteed to be witty and/or sarcastic (totally welcomed this sense of humor.) The vibe of this place is comfortably unique.

Sometimes I also surf active volcanoes... :P I'll definitely save that expression to use in the future! It was trial and error on determining the right interval for the map, so using an expression that automatically selects multiples would've saved a lot of time.

Simple, reusable notepad to replace scratch paper at the office:

- acrylic "plexiglass" sheet (home improvement store)
- Chalk markers (craft store)
- self adhesive vinyl bumpers (home improvement store)
- Olfa cutter for slicing theough acrylic (not sure, maybe a craft store? I got mine several years ago from a local shop that catered to Architecture students)

Ink stays put after a couple of minutes of drying. Wipes off with a dry or wet paper towel.

Tan's Asian Cafe
2743 Capital Cir NE, Tallahassee, FL 32308
Try the Beef Randang, a slow-cooked-all-day coconut-based, lightly curried, caramalized beef dish served with Indonesian rice cakes and perfectly steamed, still slightly crunchy broccoli. You'll melt like this dish melts in your mouth. And guess what's more.....the dish is only $8.00.

I frequent Tan's Asian, maybe twice a month. The service is some of the friendliest I've encountered in the restaurant business, however, if it's a busy Thurs or Fri night you might wait up to 45mins for cooked-to-order dishes like Chow-mein or Curry with Onion. The servers have always come over and apologized profusely, and sometimes even served complimentary egg rolls. Even so, I think it's worth the wait on these nights if you're not bound by time-sensitive commitments in a 2hr time-span.

Tan's is a small place next to Esposito's, a landscaping company, so it's surrounded by an assortment of ferns, vines, and giant clay gardening pots. Kind of a unique feel for a restaurant entrance even if it may not have been intentional. The inside of the cafe is clean enough. No strongly themed decorations and they have several booths and your standard tables. Overall the atmosphere fits the "cafe" genre of restaurants. You'll keep coming back for the delicious food.

Anyone in the San Fran area, heads up. I'd LOVE to go, but can't seem to justify the $500 plane ticket for a one day fly-in, fly-out.

Great neighborhood coffee shop. They even make a latte with Cardamom which is my favorite spice!

Awesome wine and beer selection -- including sake and ports. Along with the general necessities of a convenient market, there's a deli that makes sandwiches and has specialty cheeses (to go with your wine!)

Perfect post hiking kind of food that'll fill you up. Generally friendly staff and average drip coffee. They also provide wifi. Visit In Place if you're looking to sop up a syrupy plate cakes, biscuits or steak.

After visiting Frolik a few times, my experience and opinion of Frolik hasn't changed. Go for the rooftop view and live music, and stick to drinks at the bar. Don't order food if you expect to have even an average service experience. The times we've sat down to order food and drinks, we've had a waitress who seemed fed up her job and took it out in us. Drink orders wrong, but she didn't want to bring out any replacements. One in our party asked about a drink recommendation and she literally retorted passive aggressively with, "It's on the menu. Cant you read?" Even basic requests like, "Could we grab a few more napkins from you?" were met with silence, a long stare and her just walking off. It almost become funny until you realize you're paying $15 for a cocktail, and the fact you're not at Dick's. I'd say the general feel towards customers here is aloof and not interested in being friendly whatsoever. Maybe it's the destructive party crowd who frequents late night - trashed bathrooms, broken glasses, "Woo!"s. But it's still not an excuse for such terrible customer interaction. So god for some drinks and enjoy them on the 5th floor patio. They have a nice fireplace setup and often have live music playing from late afternoon in the summer months.

Great campsites with ample tree coverage for privacy. We hammock camped here on 4th of July weekend. Expect to make reservations several months in advance. There's also a day use area where you can launch boats, swim, picnic, etc on the little pebbled beach of Lake Quinault. I recommend driving just north down the road to the Lodge to grab a coffee and some fruit on the patio that overlooks the Lake, or grabbing some iced beer at the general store and enjoying it lakeside. Lake Quinault/Willaby Campground is both great for a weekend destination, or a stop along your way around 101 around the peninsula.
