jimmysI cannot believe I almost left off reviewing one of my favorite breakfast joints of all time- Jimmy’s here in Walker! What makes it so good? Let me tell you!

1: the atmosphere. They usually have playing coffeehouse cafe on their Sirius music which is right up my alley. Good tunes at a restaurant is well-played in my book. The lighting is dim but nice, you don’t need to look fancy to go here. The booths are roomy and comfy and inviting! We stay way too long when we go, but they don’t mind. There are also tables with swirly chairs to move around in which are also comfy.

2: the food. The food is good and the service is fast! Lightning fast! The servers know what they are doing and they do it well. Their food is delicious as well, which is top priority. I usually order breakfast when I go, the pancakes are killer and they hash browns are perfect. I have ordered dinner there as well. I usually order off the seniors dinner menu because I don’t like large portions and they don’t mind younger people ordering off that menu which is nice. You can also order a glass of wine or a beer with dinner if you’d like to! Prices are fair as well, not outrageous by any means.

So there you have it! We always bring our company here when they come to town and we end up staying and chatting and drinking coffee and sometimes they’ve even closed and we didn’t know it. The staff rocks! Jimmy’s has never done me wrong and I hope they continue with how they’re going for years to come.

Just be sure to call for their hours they are a little different up north! They don’t have a website yet- but check online for reviews on tripadvisor and urbanspoon. I will post a link to their google reviews! Stellar.

Longbow Golf ClubDo you love to golf? Or maybe you just really like driving around a zippy cart all day? You can do both, you don’t need to choose. Have you played the course at Longbow Golf Club before? No? You are missing out my friends. Longbow is truly pristine. It’s an 18 hole course that is so well designed and challenging you will be very impressed. Now, I am not much of a golfer myself and neither is the Guide however, we have come to Longbow many times due to close friends and family being avid golfers. And we find the course to be breathtaking. The golfers among us love the course, it’s a fam favorite shall we say. (There are other courses in town and they are very nice as well.) Check out Longbow’s website for rates, tee times, specials, membership details and you will find a host of pictures on their photo gallery. It’s beautiful! So you’re in town for the weekend and looking for something to do between 8am-9am, why not hit the links! If you bring your wife, maybe she’ll be your driver. (That’s my job, along with putting because I’m the pro). Here’s their site: book your tee time today!
