As much as I love developing new menu items, and sharing new recipes, there is something undeniably satisfying about returning to the classics. This Honey Run favorite was around long before I came to work here, and I can’t see it ever leaving. I am, of course, talking about our quiche. It has become a favorite both with our staff, and our loyal guests.
While we do mix up the flavors of the quiches we make, ranging from broccoli cheddar to mushroom leek, the version that remains my favorite is the Quiche Lorraine.
