“Check out Fanny's Cafe”

Goodwood Museum and Gardens
Ranked #11 of 91 things to do in Tallahassee
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 2 September 2014

The museum and gardens are interesting and the main building is beautiful as well as historical. Drop in at lunch time and eat at Fanny's Cafe. My personal favorite is the fried BLT with fried green tomato, apple wood smoked bacon, and orange blossom mayo. Yum!

Very calm museum, indoors and outdoors. I liked the greenhouse very much. In an hour you have a good impression what a plantation was like.

The mansion is stuffed full of original furnishings. The most I have seen during a tour of this type. Good tour. A little expensive, but I was happy to support there efforts to restore and preserve this beautiful home for all of us to enjoy.

Gardens have a wildness about them but that seems to be the plan. This is not a manicured landscaped garden. There is a lovely reflecting pool that used to be the swimming pool hidden near Fanny's cafe.
Had a nice lunch at Fanny"s then took the house tour. Costs $12 for tour. Guide explained about all the previous owners. House contains items from all of them. Some interesting artefacts and stories about the owners and how the house changed hands.

Visited on a Friday morning, to catch the first tour of the day while it was still cool. No one else signed up, so we had a private tour with volunteer, Sue. She shared a lot of the "juicy gossip" and drama that played out in this house. Nice that each family left articles behind and these have been saved to create a place that doesn't feel stuffy and dead, like some old estates do. Sue was very enthusiastic, knowledgeable and interesting.
We had a great visit.

Thank Steve P
