Eating while riding horseback was pioneered by the efficient Mongols, who also adjusted to reading, receiving haircuts, and filling out their taxes atop their four-legged mobiles. Enjoy the convenience of chairs and tables with today’s Groupon: for $12 you get $25 worth of home-style cooking and drinks at Cafe Hon.

Inside Cafe Hon, bright yellow walls, blue-green trim, a 30-foot flamingo, and an Elvis statue greet and entertain diners as they contemplate home-cooked breakfast, lunch, and dinner options. Leopard-print booths and dinette sets lay the stage for a sweet and salty breakfast of two buttermilk pancakes and bacon ($4.99), while teacup chandeliers provide diners with excellent views of Bawlmers' best burgers ($7.99-$9.99), and homemade chili ($4.99). Night-eaters can sink their nighty teeth into the fried chicken ($12.99) on Tuesday while the "Much Better than Mom's" meatloaf ($12.99) provides hearty sustenance all week long. There are also salads, sandwiches, and the Maryland-style lump crab cake platter ($18.99 for one cake, $27.99 for two). Graze sweeter mouth-pastures with the bread pudding, a noteworthy Cafe Hon creation.
Café Hon was named as having some of the Best Comfort Food in Baltimore by Citysearchers, who give it an average of three stars. It was also named a Top 10 Restaurant for Brunch by Gayot, whose reviewers rate it 12/20. Yelpers give Café Hon three stars, but Forbes' Mobil Travel Guide gives it only one.
- What do you get when you combine the hominess of a take-all-comers diner with the sociability of a neighborly chat over the backyard fence? Why Café Hon. Friendly is the word for this lynchpin of Hamden's 36th street, locally known as The Avenue. We're talking meatloaf sandwiches, bowls of thick potato soup, grilled cheese with bacon and tomato, chicken salad on toast, and hot turkey platters with mashed potatoes and yellow gravy, all served up in a spunky second-hand shop setting complete with teacup-and-saucer chandeliers. – Gayot
