One of the things about life is how it just keeps surprising you with the re-birth and renewal of itself. When I first moved here, Cafe Loco was a local restaurant we went to on a regular basis. The location couldn’t be better, the deck overlooked the shrimp boats and Lazeretto creek. The sunsets were just the best- watching that big red ball drop over the marsh grass and wide Savanannah…. marshside heaven! The food was served on paper plates and was very causal, but still good. Then a fire happened and they were shut down and reopened months later. Even though my shrimp place ( buying shrimp right off the shrimp boats from Capt. Roy and the ladies at Lazeretto Creek Seafood) I just didn’t make it to the newly opened Cafe Loco. MISTAKE!
I met Joel Solomon at the Tybee Tourism meeting recently and he personally asked me to come and experience his restaurant. I truly love to support my fellow local businesses, for a lot of reasons, but the big one being I want to be able to tell all my guests when they ask about the best places to go and eat on the island…. Went to dinner last night, too late for watching sunset, but that will be a regular experience I’ve decided….)
