Food, food and more food

Cinnamon Roll at Bayside Cafe
Joyce Faulkner and I have more or less eaten our way through Port Isabel and South Padre Island, TX, in the last couple of weeks. In between book events, we have planning meetings with historian Steve Hathcock, author David Harry, Griff Mangan from Paragraphs, and other fun people.

If you're planning a visit, you won't go hungry. Great food is abundant on both sides of the causeway. If Mexican is your wish, we suggest breakfast or lunch at Manuel's and The Chef House in Port Isabel. If you're on the island, try The Chef's Fresh Mexican Food at lunch or La Hacienda for dinner.

Want a sandwich for lunch in Port Isabel? Try Le Sandwich Boutique for delicious soups and sandwiches. For a burger menu to tempt the hardiest eaters, you'll love Will and Jack's.

If you're in the mood for Italian, you'll love Gabriella's on the island. Many restaurants offer Gulf shrimp and fish. Pelican Station in Port Isabel is a personal favorite. Tonight we had a melt-in-your-mouth Filet Mignon at Sea Ranch on the island and of course, we topped it off with Key Lime Pie.

We've divided most of our breakfasts between Bayside Cafe in Laguna Vista and Grapevine on the island. Both have excellent omelettes and at Bayside, we can't resist the cinnamon rolls - we do share one because they are huge.

Can't believe we've been to all of those places but we've enjoyed them all. Think we've gotten any work done?
