Café Hon is all about home cooking done right. We are predisposed to adore any restaurant whose menu standouts are unglamorous foods such as chili cheese fries (drowning in meaty, spicy chili and tons of gloriously gooey cheese over hand-cut, perfectly fried potatoes) and succulent, silky, unabashedly homely bread pudding. But then every menu item lives up to expectations: Hamburgers are fresh beef, cooked right; blue plate specials like meat loaf truly are, as named, “better than mom's”, and the hearty breakfasts are worth waking up for.
This off-the-beaten-path Rotunda counter offers the standard subs and salads options, but we really only hit it consistently for the pizza by the slice. Casa Mia's nice-sized cuts of pie--try the veggie or the spinach and tomato--are perfect pre- or post-movie snacks when hitting the Rotunda Cinemateque or the perfect self-reward for surviving a trip to Giant without having a nervous breakdown from having to navigate the Schylla and Charibdis of the elderly and the collegiate, both equally confused in crowds.
Tea house with a wide complement of teas and coffees. High tea served by reservation.
It's tough to nail down a place as eclectic as Golden West Café. The place where New Mexico meets the Far East has a whole lot of thrift-store paintings on the walls and menus that arrive in old record album covers, with food that ranges from Frito pie to warm Vietnamese noodle salad (aka the Mental Oriental). Weekend breakfast-time waits can be long, but are worth it--the kitchen churns out righteous huevos rancheros and hot cakes (three crucial words: real maple syrup), though our perennial favorite is the blueberry Bismarck. (“If butter offends you, do not order this,” the menu intones.) Lunch and dinner bring burgers, green chile soup, and other Southwestern treats, plus amazing homemade layer cake for dessert. Best of all, the Golden West's addition of a bar means, at long last, margaritas with that quesadilla.
