After our great Amelia River Cruise outing, we walked to The Happy Tomato for lunch. It is always delicious and has a great island flavor tucked away off the street. Locals love this place!! The pulled pork is to die for!

I try every so often to run downtown and get a West Coast Veggie sandwich with potato salad....my favorite. Others in my family love the BBQ. Cute courtyard seating if you have time but also a great take out place.
