Lunch: This rustic bakery, located in the trendy Starland District, has garnered national attention for its old fashioned cupcakes. But the sugary, moist, beautifully decorated cupcakes aren't the only treats worth trying. From the delectable banana pudding (arguably the best in Savannah) to the simple, subtle lavender bars to the dense, chocolaty star brownies, there is a confection sure to please even the most discerning palates. But you don't have to have a sweet tooth to find an excuse to visit Back in the Day. Several sandwiches, all served on homemade bread, demonstrate that Back in the Day has mastered the art of savory just as well as sweet. The standout sandwich, hands down, is the bacon-onion jam Panini, featuring gooey sharp cheddar cheese and an insanely decadent and delicious house-made bacon jam.
Local Expert Amy Pine Says:
Lunch: "Take your favorite recipes home! Pick up a copy of proprietor and chef Cheryl and Griffith Day's cookbook, available for purchase in the store."
Best for Lunch Because: Back in the Day Bakery's mouthwatering desserts are reason enough to go. But the eatery's sandwiches on homemade bread will make you a true believer.
