Info

Give Huntington Street Café a try next time you’re looking for somewhere new to sit down and eat your mid-day meal. Their menu features sandwiches, salads, personal pizzas, wraps and quesadillas, all perfect grabbing on the go or pausing to enjoy. “All of our sandwiches are named after songs,” says owner Peter Vouras. “It’s fun, because grown, big, burly men asking for the ‘Fell in Love With a Girl’ or the ‘Don’t You Want Me, Baby’ is always fun,” he says. Everything at Huntington Street Café is made fresh to order, as well. “We don’t own a microwave,” says Vouras.

This is the saddest excuse for a cafe that I have ever experienced. We ate here tonight because of an Amazon Local voucher I convinced myself to buy...that and my never-ending optimism when it comes to patronizing local establishments.
To begin with, when we pulled into the parking lot we actually wondered if the place was still in business judging by the uninviting outside appearance. Once inside we were greeted by the waitress, who promptly supplied us with menus and took our order. That's pretty much where the positive part of our dining experience ended. Once the food was served it was all downhill...
While my husband's sandwich was satisfactory, I had to personally walk my lukewarm crabcakes back to the kitchen and ask for it to be thoroughly cooked. The chef was very polite and cared enough to prepare and personally serve me a whole new dish. Unfortunately, even the second attempt smelled and tasted like it had been in the freezer far too long (not to mention that the main ingredient looked, smelled and tasted NOTHING like crabmeat) -- not the chef's fault by any means and certainly not the fault of the waitress. However...
I do believe that when the owner is not on the premises, the onus falls on the hired help (assuming they are properly trained) to ensure that the customer is happy. Once our initial meal was served we never saw our waitress again. My husband had to go to the counter to pay the bill and no one seemed to notice or care that my meal sat on the table uneaten.
I have no clue what keeps this place in business or what makes people want to come back, but I sure as hell know it's NOT the crabcakes!!!
