If you are a visitor in town, one of your first stops should certainly be the Huntsville/Madison County Visitor Center®, located in downtown Huntsville. But after you get your maps and brochures and make plans for all of the fun things to do in town, you may find yourself craving something to eat.
You are in luck, because just a couple blocks away at A.M Booth’s Lumberyard you will find a quaint little shop called Sandwich Farm — a locally owned restaurant with a knack for fresh and in-house made delights.
Now, I happen to love breakfast dishes, and not just in the morning. Thankfully, Sandwich Farm takes into account that there are people like me, and they serve breakfast until 3:00 in the afternoon. For those who want a traditional meal menu, they start serving from their sandwich menu at 11 a.m. So if you come in for lunch, you have the pleasure of choosing from two menus.
One of my favorite things to order there is the heavenly French toast. This isn’t just any French toast though. This is made of Cranberry Walnut bread – sourced from the local Fred Bread , dusted with powdered sugar and served with their own stout beer syrup. Yes, you read that right – stout beer syrup! It is rich and delicious and perfectly enhances the flavors in the bread. You might also want to order a side dish of sausage or bacon – both of which they make right there at Sandwich Farm.
But let me go back to that amazing syrup for just a moment. I have to admit that I am not a fan of beer. I know, I know – how awful considering how many local breweries we have popping up in the Rocket City! But it’s true. That said, the stout syrup wasn’t at all offensive to my sensitivities. In fact, it was downright delectable! However, if you would like something a little different, Sandwich Farm also has another creation – their own citrus syrup. I tried both of them the last time I was there – and really, I can’t decide which one I like better. You’d have a winner whichever you went with.
If you do find yourself craving a sandwich instead of breakfast fare though, might I suggest trying out their smoked turkey sandwich? Topped with Havarti cheese, avocado and their own garlicky mayonnaise, it is fresh and delicious. If I were to pick a favorite sandwich, that could be my favorite – but it is really hard to pick just one. They have such a great variety, and whatever you decide upon, I’m sure you will be quite satisfied.
Now that you have fueled up with a fresh and delicious meal from Sandwich Farm, you are ready to take off on your adventures in the Rocket City. The city awaits!
