I was on a two week business trip to Savannah and tried a number of restaurants and coffee shops. I looked for whole foods, gluten and dairy free and good cups of coffee.
The “Little Hilbo Awesome
Cold Smoked Dry Aged Rib Eye Steak Cajun Spiced and Grilled ~ Duck Fat Fried Hand Cut Frites ~ SauteÃ©d Organic Haricot Vert ~ Bourbon Green Peppercorn Cream ~Veal Demi-Glace ~ Not Served Past Medium to Ensure Steaks Quality Thirty-Seven Dollars
Lots of veggies. Good food. Real, not inexpensive though.
Ranco Alegre Cuban Restaurant
OK, but not a lot of veggies. Authentic Cuban.
Uncle Bubbaâ€™s â€” Uncle Bubbaâ€™s Oyster House
Unlimited fresh oysters and crab on the weekend. Wow. Also the regular fried stuff which most others eat. Interestingly the oysters are from the Gulf, not local. And the crab is Alaskan.
OK, good service. Regular American beef.
In downtown Savannah. Good salads, not very large (I like huge ones).
Burger beef is good, but they should do a better presentation when I get it without the bun. The optional Jalapenos were hot. The mushrooms option was good but not generous.
I saw the tomato soup but it has cream, so no go for me.
Crowded at lunch time.
A chain but didnâ€™t feel like one. Good food and service. Higher end, not inexpensive.
Good coffee. Good atmosphere. Good boiled eggs in the morning at the counter. The omelette isnâ€™t too interesting. They have a gluten free brownie or similar thing if you are into semi-processed carbohydrates.
They have musical performances in the evening. And they are next to Forsyth Park where there is, in season, a farmerâ€™s market in Forsyth Park.
Next to a Brighter Day Natural Foods Market. The store is expensive. Good macadamia nuts though fresh without added crap
If you really want â€œhealth foodsâ€ go to the very large Savannah Whole Foods Market.
The Coffee Fox
Closer to the main tourist area. Nice place too. Not as much food variety.
Apparently the oldest coffee shop in Savannah and across from the Savannah Theatre.
Good American. No hope for gluten free.
Kitty corner to the Savannah Theatre
I looked inside. It has a funky atmosphere .
Tangerine Fusion & Sushi Bar | Savannah, GA
I poked my head into a couple of them but looks like the usual rolls and farmed salmon in any of them I looked at.
Apparently a good lunch place with yummy salads and easy to make Paleo.
Looked at gators but didnâ€™t eat.

Savannah Theatre where I saw two great performances of Les MisÃ©rables.
Otherwise, the usual stuff. Lots of bars and at least in the tourist area they allow you to take your drinks outside and out on the street while you walk around going to the next drinking stop.
