It’s been years since I’ve eaten at Henrietta’s Table, so when my “business associates” suggested meeting there for breakfast, I was more than excited!
Some positive advice for the day:
Henrietta’s Table reminds me of an upscale farmhouse with its rustic-looking wooden furniture, potted plants, and seasonal produce displayed throughout the restaurant. It was chic, yet very cute! I love fall decor! It makes me so happy!
I arrived at Henrietta’s Table about 15 minutes early, so I snapped some photos (like a good little blogger), then ordered a cup of coffee, sat at the bar, and just relaxed.
A little tip for the locals: coffee at Henrietta’s Table is just $1 and it’s really good! Nice and strong.
Henrietta’s Table serves “sophisticated” comfort food that is fresh, local, and often organic.Most the dishes on the breakfast menu were New England-inspired, like homemade granola and yogurt, fresh fruit, waffles and hotcakes, farm fresh eggs, and “New England favorites,” such as Red Flannel hash, poached eggs with Hollandaise sauce, house-smoked salmon, and buttermilk biscuits. They even had freshly baked pumpkin bread. I should have ordered a piece!
I ended up ordering a tried-and-true breakfast: Old Fashioned Oatmeal.I rarely order oatmeal at restaurants- mostly because I make a pretty mean batch of oats at home. Plus, I’d rather try something different from the menu. However, I had a feeling that Henrietta’s Table would probably make an amazing bowl of oats, so I just had to give it a try!
The Old Fashioned Oatmeal was served with cream, raisins, and brown sugar.
Simple yet delicious toppings! They make me want to revisit some of my more “classic” oatmeal combinations.
Mmmmm! The oatmeal was delicious! Warm and hearty, creamy and sweet. It was a perfect breakfast for a cool, crisp New England morning.
I pretty much ate the entire bowl of oatmeal, except for a few bites. It was incredibly filling and held me over until lunchtime, no problem.
I can’t tell you what my business meeting is about quite yet, but hopefully, it will pan-out and you’ll be hearing details soon!
