1. Cheevers Cafe
Love fancy food. Love good friends. Love that my dessert was called a pecan half ball.
Cheevers is a little bit of a hidden gem found just off 23rd Street — an area in which you can buy gourmet cupcakes, start your next tattoo, and get a loan all on one block. Some people call it cozy, some call it cramped, but your day has nowhere to go but down after devouring the huge portions of chicken fried steak and their famed carrot cake. Before you leave, don’t forget to stuff the rest of the dinner rolls covered in sea salt butter and heaven in your purse for later.
