So I must confess something… I absolutely love food. My family and I were planning this awesome food filled trip to Charleston, South Carolina BUT with all the rain and thunderstorms we decided that wasn’t the best idea, unfortunately. So we decided to make our way to Columbia instead. Yelp is seriously my best friend when I’m going to a new place, so I found a few places that caught my eye but we went with this awesome little place called Cafe Strudel.
So coming into this place it was PACKED, (which definitely tells me that we went to the right place) our wait ended up being a little more than 30 minutes.
So to kill time we went next door and visited the Old Mill Antique Mall. This place is massive. When you think you’re done another room pops up out of no where. Old Mill has over 75 dealers selling anything from jewelry, books, pins, clothes, old cameras, you name it, they probably have it.
Once we were antiqued out we headed back to the restaurant and what a coincidence our table was ready.
Our waiter was absolutely wonderful and the service was great. BUT our food was even better.
Duck fat fry Basket: Fries tossed in duck fat and truffle oil with a green onion aioli.
Freshly squeezed orange juice. ABSOLUTELY AMAZING
Hangover hash browns: Hash browns with banana peppers, onions, tomatoes and scrambles eggs. WITH one pineapple french toast.
Sunrise Burrito: scrambled eggs, cheddar cheese, salsa, black beans and sour cream in a cheddar cheese wrap.
If you’re ever in Columbia you must visit this place! I 100% recommend it. They have great service and great food.
