South Tulsa’s Cafe Seville Speaks My Love Language

fullsizerender-1My husband and I recently discovered Cafe Seville in The Shops of Seville at 101st and Yale and realized that this adorable restaurant speaks our love language: breakfast food!

Their staff arrives at 4 a.m. to begin cooking delicious pastries and other decadent dishes. At Cafe Seville, they serve breakfast items that you won’t find anywhere else. Among the mouth-watering options are French Toast flavors like Caramelized Vanilla Bean, Orange-Almond, and Cherries Jubilee. I would like to try one of each, please! Oh, and don’t even get me started on the Bananas Foster Pancakes!

If you prefer something a little more savory, I recommend the Savory Bacon Tartlet (right). It’s a tasty pastry filled with a sauté of bacon, mushrooms, sweet pepper, thyme and smokey paprika, then topped img_5012with egg and baked into a delicious quiche tartlet and served with fruit. It was extremely filling and flavorful.

My husband went a little South of the Border with his breakfast choice — Blue Corn Stacked Enchiladas (below). Your choice of bacon, ham or sausage, two eggs, cooked any way you like, with potatoes, onion, bell pepper and cheese, then layered between blue corn tortillas, served with Seville Salsa.

Cafe Seville also has a number of breakfast sandwiches and basic breakfast combos with eggs, bacon, biscuits and gravy, etc.

img_5011They are also open for lunch, serving a variety of sandwiches, soups, salads, and burgers.

Cafe Seville is open for Sunday brunch from 10-2 and Tuesday through Saturday from 7:30 to 2. They
have an adorable outdoor patio, complete with fireplace. If we can ever get some cooler weather this fall, it would be the perfect place to enjoy breakfast or lunch with a friend on a cool autumn day!

Maxxwells Restaurant Serves Up Delicious Eats Inside Campbell Hotel

maxxwellsIf you’re looking for consistently delicious food at a reasonable price in a classy setting, pay a visit to Maxxwells Restaurant inside the historic Campbell Hotel at 2626 E. 11th st. in Tulsa. I love the charm that both this hotel and the restaurant hold. Situated right along Route 66, the restaurant fittingly features black and white photos from Tulsa’s past and booths and a bar that will make you feel like you’ve stepped back in time.

IMG_4787When my husband and I recently visited Maxxwells for lunch, we were pleased to find that it wasn’t very crowded, making it the perfect spot for a little date in the middle of our work day. He ordered the Buffalo Chicken Wrap ($11) — grilled chicken tossed in buffalo sauce, lettuce, celery, and blue cheese in a flour tortilla, with a side of sweet potato tots. He said the wrap was a little spicy, and the celery gave it a nice crunch.

The real star of his dish was the sweet potato tots. He had tried those before and had discovered that they are basically golden nuggets of goodness. I tried a couple and was truly impressed. They were better than sweet potato fries and better than regular tots – the best of both worlds combined!

I went for a lunch menu item — the half sandwich and soup ($7). I opted for the Open Face Turkey Melt — IMG_4788bacon, tomato, lettuce, Swiss and chipotle aioli on toasted wheat bread with a cup of Tomato Basil soup. The sandwich was delicious! The chipotle aioli definitely made this sandwich. My soup was served very hot and flavorful.

Other menu items that we have our eyes on for future visits include the Smokey Mac n’ Cheese — tossed smoked sausage and diced chicken breast, their Chicken Fried Steak and Chicken Fried Chicken, and the Spinach Salad Hot Bacon Vinaigrette. Oh, and I didn’t even mention that they have a complete breakfast menu and serve breakfast all day long.

IMG_4789We decided to indulge in dessert and ordered a slice of House Made Cheesecake ($5). It was served with fresh strawberries and whipped cream and was simply divine.

Maxxwells is open 7 days a week, 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. It’s most certainly a Tulsa destination worth checking out!

Tulsa’s Best Cinnamon Rolls

Oooey gooey icing. Sinfully cinnamon-drenched layers of fresh-baked rolls. It’s what Saturday mornings (or Monday through Friday mornings) are made of…cinnamon rolls at Savoy! Your search for deliciously satisfying cinnamon rolls (and so much more) is over, Tulsa!

If you visit Savoy (located at 61st and Sheridan) on a Saturday morning, you will likely find a crowd waiting to be seated. But don’t let the crowd scare you away! They’re all nice, hungry people just like you who want to taste the Savoy goodness. Just grab a number, and you’ll be amazed at how quickly your turn comes! (Case in point: They were on #48 when I arrived. I grabbed #60, and they called me within 20 minutes).

Yes, Savoy is famous for its warm, half-pound cinnamon rolls. But they also have delicious pecan rolls, pancakes (of the blueberry and whole wheat variety), omelets, chicken fried steak, biscuits and gravy, and much more. Savoy’s menu is authentically Oklahoman. In fact, one of their most popular omelets, the Sooner Omelet, is filled with grilled chicken, onion, bell peppers and cheeses with sour cream and salsa on the side. Now THAT kind of food, partnered with a huge cinnamon roll, will get you ready and hyped up for an Sooners football game!

All of Savoy’s food, including things like salad dressings and syrup, is carefully prepared from scratch daily, and you can really taste the difference. Their chicken fried steak, roast beef and freshly ground hamburger is trimmed by hand daily from only USDA choice beef. That’s what I call good home cookin’.

Oh, and Savoy is not just for breakfast! They are open weekdays from 6 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., meaning you can check out other Oklahoma classic dishes like Skillet-Fried Catfish, Fried Chicken Livers, Stewed Chicken with Homemade Noodles, and much more.

Finally, the best thing about Savoy is the incredible service you’ll receive. Every time I visit Savoy, I am greeted by an extremely pleasant server, my coffee cup is never left to run dry, and my stomach is
