Honey Bee Bakery just introduced a new spring lunch menu with interesting new items such as a sesame-crusted salmon salad and the Henry Hill sandwich, featuring Stan’s locally cured Prosciutto and salami. Chef Sean Adams is still cooking up rotating soups throughout the week and says the bakery is also now selling NY-style bagels during weekend brunches.

Check out the new menu above or call Honey Bee at 662-236-2490 for more information.


Dessert Cravings

2 Jan

OK, so it’s the second day of your New Year’s resolution to get in shape and you’re already having dessert cravings. It’s nothing to be ashamed of, it happens to the best of us.

The good news is, if you decide to give in to those cravings, the new dessert menu at Volta Taverna can help you out. It’s been available for a couple of months now, but since I’m usually too full for dessert, I didn’t find out about it until today.

The complete menu is shown above, with a couple of the highlights including a warm bread pudding of the day and homemade chocolate cake topped with caramel and Heath bar pieces.

Afraid of diet guilt? Just take a stroll to the Square afterward and watch it magically disappear.

Another Yogurt Shop!

8 Aug

Just when you thought Oxford met its quota of frozen yogurt shops, a sign pops up announcing that a Tutti Frutti is coming to town.

Set to open next door to Dollar Tree in the Walmart shopping center on Jackson Avenue, Tutti Frutti is a self-serve frozen yogurt concept with more than 500 stores worldwide offering soy-based frozen yogurt in nearly 50 flavors.

No firm opening date has been set yet. More info to come as it becomes available.


Pinkberry Fan?

18 Jul

Good news for Pinkberry fans. The popular frozen yogurt chain will be opening a location inside the Ole Miss Student Union this fall.

Remember two and a half years ago when there was nowhere to get frozen yogurt in Oxford? This new addition will now make it possible to grab a yogurt from almost any corner of town. Makes a hot day a little easier.
