Recker-mendation: Honey on the Table

I am embarrassed to admit that it took me this long to make it to Honey on the Table. It is in my neighborhood after all. But the good news is I finally made it. And, wow. I was immediately impressed with the menu. While it isn’t huge, it has just the right combination of sandwiches and salads to make it the perfect lunchtime stop. And while the space is small, it lends an intimacy to the entire experience. The owner was extremely helpful, explaining all of the menu items and pointing out her favorites.

I opted for the Great Granny Smith, a BLT with thinly sliced Granny Smith apples and cheddar on house-made raisin bread. The combination of the crisp apple, the salty bacon, the savory cheese, and the slightly sweet bread is outstanding. It’s so outstanding, I wonder why I haven’t thought of this particular combination before. It seems to go together better than peanut butter and jelly. I will definitely be stopping in again soon to have another.

My lunch mate, Sarah, chose the Boar’s Head Turkey sandwich, served deluxe with Havarti cheese and house-made peach pepper jam. While I didn’t taste it, I can attest that it looked delicious… and also humungous! Sarah was able to eat only half of it before giving in and saving the rest for later.

Honey on the Table does not offer fountain sodas, but they do have a nice selection of beverages in bottles and a large container of lemonade on the counter. The day that I visited, the lemonade du jour was ginger lemonade- it hit the spot on the 100+ degree day.

You can view the full menu online. I can’t wait to go back and try some of their salads. The baked goods looked amazing too!

  1. The Granny Smith is my FAVORITE sandwich there. Tho I think they use way to much of mayo / sauce. I love HOTT and have been there many times. The only thing I find discerning is their lack of consistency. I know that comes with the territory of new restaurants and when almost everything made from scratch but when you love something, and the next time it is different it takes away from your experience. Won’t keep me away however.

    1. Eek- I was worried about consistency. I had the same concerns for Lemongrass and haven’t been back since my first visit. Crossing my fingers that HOTT (love the acronym) works out the bugs.

  2. Granny Smith is SO good that it’s the only thing I’ve had there. I know, I need to branch out, but it is the best.
