The ordering procedure is different from most other cafes. Instead of taking your seat and placing your order with a server, you will visit a countertop where you order and pay. There are menus on the left as you enter and two cashiers available so the lines moved swiftly. After paying, you will get your own coffee or drinks and find your way to a table. We chose to sit upstairs and by a window, a Trump rally was happening in the city on that day and we wanted to enjoy the show.
The ordering process is different and it can be a bit difficult to carry multiple drinks and silverware. However, on the plus side, you will not find yourself wishing that your server would come over to take your order. Overall, I am completely happy with the alternative approach.

During ordering, I noticed “baked oatmeal” on the menu. I was intrigued so I added a Bowl for my family of three to try for the first time. Everything we ordered came out hot and fresh, but the baked oatmeal was by far the best dish on our table. There was a mountain of oats topped with fresh strawberries, blueberries, pecans, and served with a small cup of milk. This ended up being a breakfast dessert of sorts, the three of us picked on it until it was completely finished. We highly recommend Southern Manners, and their specialty, baked oatmeal.
The Lost Treasure is one of the best mini golf courses we have ever played. The entire course is well designed, and very well maintained. Each round begins with a train ride to the top of the mountain, and many of the holes have a themed storyline revolving around the incredible Professor Hacker. This adventurous putt-putt course is very kid-friendly, my seven-year-old son loved it so much that we played both the diamond and the Gold course for a total of 36 holes. Please do not mistake “kid-friendly” to mean “easy”, each green on this course is easy enough for kids and still presents some interesting challenges for the adults.

If you do decide to give The Lost Treasure Mini golf course a shot, be sure to take advantage of the discounted second round. At the time of our visit, the second round only cost six bucks per person. I greatly recommend The Lost Treasure; I can't wait to check out other Professor Hacker mini-golf courses!
Visiting Patriots Point, the nation’s oldest aircraft carrier museum was an awesome experience! The Fighting Lady is a retired World War II aircraft carrier, at over 70 years old she is still very impressive today.

deck of the Yorktown CV-10
The inside of the USS Yorktown CV-10 is laid out similar to a museum. There are lots of military artifacts, scaled models, and several full-size airplanes. When you step out onto the massive flight deck, you will be in the midst of even more retired jets and military planes. This part of the tour was especially exciting to my seven-year-old son. The CV-10 is not designed for those with bad knees, many of the stairways are more like ladders than steps.
The USS Laffey (DD-724) is more interactive for the kids. This amazing vessel is much smaller and feels less like a museum. My advice would be to resist the urge to go straight for the enormous aircraft carrier. Take in the military destroyer and all it has to offer before embarking on the journey of exploring the CV-10.

I am not a huge military buff nor do I typically enjoy touring museums. I thought this would be a fun and educational day trip for my family and as it turns out, I was correct. I highly recommend visiting this exhibit, I would suggest that you allow at least 4 hours to enjoy this tour. Who knows, if we are back in the area again, we may see you there.
