10. Cookies and milk at Swine Southern Table & Bar

We weren't all blessed with a family that would provide milk and cookies as an after-school snack. Have no fear -- Swine can make up for it in adulthood with homemade Oreos and bourbon-spiked milk ($10). The black-and-white sandwich cookies come filled with white chocolate, and you can wash away the embarrassing black crumbs (and your troubles) with ice-cold bourbon milk sipped through a swirled chocolate straw. Still not feeling better? Strawberries and a dark chocolate dipping sauce sweeten the deal.

9. Fried chicken at Joe's Takeaway

If you associate Joe's only with fancy waiters, stone crabs, and key lime pie, head to the neighboring gourmet to-go shop. A fried half-chicken costs only $5.95. When you are looking for comfort, a bucket of KFC, an eight-piece box from Publix, or Krispy Krunchy's "crack chicken" will do. However, Joe's has the best seasoned breading and crisp exterior combined with moist interior. It is also a fraction of the price of other food at Joe's, so you can be comforted by the same great quality with more padding in your wallet.
