North Augusta Things to Do
A lot to do for a smaller city (Augusta,...
We have an art museum, Morris Museum of Art, which focuses on Southern art and artists. There is a history museum, a hands-on science center, Fort Discovery, and The Augusta Canal Interpretive Center, which is Georgia's only National Heritage Area. They also give canal boat tours. (Or you can rent a canoe and canoe down it.) We have several art galleries, antique stores, bars, and restaurants downtown. And from spring to fall, there are often festivals and outdoor events going on. And we have lots of golf courses and lakes in the area.Related to:

Manuel's Bread Cafe: A Terrific New Restaurant in North...
This is a wonderful fresh new dining option in the Hammonds Ferry area of North Augusta. The community is set up as a village with people living very closely together and able to walk and bike everywhere. Since it is a very pricey neighborhood the surroundings are nice to look at. It can be a little challenging to find (took us two tries) but you'll be so glad you did. With a dozen or so tables inside and out it is a little small and reservations would probably be a good idea for a group.
But the food is what makes this place special. They offer breakfast and dinner as well. I had a beef brisket sandwich which was on rye bread with mustard and onion slices. Sound boring? Not at all. The beef was smoked and cooked to falling apart perfection. The French fries come in a stainless steel cup (a la Tony Bourdain?) and were nicely crispy. My husband had the Pan Bagnat sandwich which is tuna, pesto, hard boiled egg, tomatoes, and lettuce on an eggy roll. Wonderful! A completely different taste. The dessert (cheesecake with chocolate ganache) was an expensive as either of our sandwiches and it was pretty good but the sandwiches really knocked me out.
And in the community there is a garden which is where Manuel's gets all of its vegetables. Mmmm mmm great! Fresh seasonal food with the touch of an artisan. We will return again and again
Favorite Dish: So far the Pan Bagnat. Different from anything else I've ever had in a sandwich.Related to:

Sabi Japanese: Excellent extraordinary eclectic sushi
Great exotic sushi (my husband had an assorted plate of things he'd never even heard of and loved it all) and I love the combo plates which start out with miso soup, then two fried shrimp with the japanese breadcrumbs, and then your main comes with whatever you ordered (scallop, beef, shrimp, fish) zucchini, squash and onions. Very very tasty food and for a reasonable price. You see lots of businessmen sneaking sushi at lunchtime!
Favorite Dish: The fish/scallop combo. I don't know what kind of fish it is but it always tastes fresh.Related to:
