Writing this review is tough the apple crumb was amazing for dessert but the rest of the lunch was mundane supposed to iconic but really just an average meal. Fish and chips ok, crab soup and bisque both ok, the apple crumb dessert was transcendent however maybe caught them on an off day

We stopped here because we were in the area for another restaurant. We had already eaten dinner, but were drawn to Café Hon because of the cute exterior and we thought they might have desserts.

Cafe Hon is exactly what you would expect from a eatery that specializes ib good old Baltimore foods. The do offer a variety of dishes, but ya gotta try the crab soup! The decor, and atmosphere is wonderful. There is alway a mixed crowd of locals and "first timers" ... ya gotta visit this place, you will never forget it!

Had a basic breakfast meal: Egg and pancakes. Wife ordered their home made Chicken Pot Pit. Simple and good. Great, friendly service. Love the photos of HONfest on the walls. HONfest is June 11th this year. Looks interesting.
