A couple of weeks ago, Daphne and I had kids at camp which meant we were able to do a Dining with Daphne!! Yay 🙂 It was a gorgeous day and not too hot so we decided to make our way downtown, to the bustling fourth street restaurant area and try one of Winston’s newest hotspots, The Honey Pot. As we sat down Daphne and I were taken by the small accents. The water bottle, towel napkin, and ever changing menu all popped out at us.
Daphne dined on the open faced tomato salad. She raved about it, when I asked her to describe it for the post she commented it was AWESOME! The tomatoes, brioche, mozzarella and basil were all so fresh and full of flavor she finished it with absolute delight.
One of my favorite things to get in the summer is a chilled soup. The chilled corn soup was a collision of fantastic flavors. I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect but our waitress instructed me to make sure that I got oil and basil in my bite with the soup. She lead me right to a powerful and delightful flavor. There is nothing else in Winston like this.
If you know me you know I love coffee, so I had to get it (it was only in the 80s that day).
I was so delighted to have a full bodied cup of coffee to go with our delicious dessert.
Our dessert … WOW! I believe they called it a Lemon Melange Cake (I should have written it down) with a strawberry and whipped topping. (I told you I should have written it down… Not a food writer just a girl that likes to eat, with a friend who is willing to come with me:)) We killed it. I mean not a crumb left on the plate.
Daphne and I outside The Honey Pot… We will definitely go back. When I asked Daphne what the best part was she said she loved being downtown, loved the attention to small details and thought it was good southern food with a flair. I couldn’t agree more.
