Henrietta’s Table in Harvard Square is everything you’d imagine when you think of the perfect farm-to-table experience. With the sunny farmhouse decor and a bustling open kitchen, this atmosphere will make you feel right at home. The menu is a bit different than most brunch spots. On Sunday, their only offering is an all-you-can-eat brunch buffet for $50. On Saturdays (when we dined), you have a little more of a choice. They offer a three-course meal for $35, or you can order a-la-carte; all entrees are $19, starters are $9, and desserts are $10. Pretty steep on the entrees, but we guess we’re paying for the farm-fresh quality. Their menu is medium-sized across all three categories and has good variety, although most of the entrees seem more lunch appropriate. The mimosa here is one of the best we’ve ever had. The difference is in the addition of Stoli orange vodka, giving it even more flavor and kick. The Skillet Breakfast is a mash-up of classic breakfast favorites all combined into a pan. The eggs are cooked like a frittata, and are topped with spicy sausage, bacon, and shredded hashbrowns. The Smokehouse Turkey Sandwich is of an insane portion size, varying from the smaller-sized Skillet. The turkey itself takes up over half of the sandwich! It has a tangy topping of Miso BBQ sauce, along with bacon and avocado which of course make everything better. Overall, everything is absolutely delicious. But what really stole our hearts is the dessert menu (dessert at brunch? We’ll take it). We opted for the Peach Almond Crostata, which is a flakey and buttery pastry filled with sweet peaches and almonds, surrounded by a drizzled raspberry puree—heavenly. NOTE: the menu here changes weekly, so we can’t guarantee these dishes will be there when you dine, but we doubt the high quality ingredients or mouth-watering flavors vary at all.
