When you are in Savannah, you must try the pralines at River City Sweets. They give out free samples and they are the best. Make sure to take some home with you! Their praline ice cream is delicious too!

You can tell where someone is from by the way they pronounce "praline." Born in Atlanta, I always say "prawlines" while others say "praylines." In any event, these are some of the best I've ever tasted. They beg to be eaten slowly, savoring each bite...More

The treats available here are absolutely delicious! You really will want to buy everything :) I did find that the staff were more interested in each other than the customers which made the atmosphere less welcoming than it could have been.
