What’s On The Menu At Houndstooth Scratch Kitchen And Eatery In Maitland?
The Houndstooth menu is quite extensive. From lovable sandwiches to gourmet sides, homemade turkey chili, pimento cheese, doggy ice cream, soups, tacos, and hotdogs. There is sure to be something on the menu for everyone.

We were literally drooling over the site of the elegantly prepared sandwiches, soups, and sides that the owner David presented us with. David is a true foodie and chef. During our conversations with him, he expressed his love of marrying flavors in all his dishes for the best possible outcome. Once you taste his creations, you’ll immediately recognize the work of a true master of their craft.

All the favorites are on the Houndstooth menu along with some other newly acquired favorites, thanks to David. The fresh salads are a must try, all of which are made with the very best ingredients and crafted with true love and attention. The Cuban sandwich is one of the best Cubans we’ve had, and we eat Cuban sandwiches all over Florida. The Reuben sandwich is another favorite that will not disappoint even the most stringent sandwich connoisseur. Chicken Avocado, grilled chicken pesto, and lemon thyme turkey are new favorites that are executed PERFECTLY. With each bite you can taste the time and attention to detail that has gone into making these sandwiches, as close to perfect as possible, over the years. The best ingredients are used. The homemade sauces, in house smoked meats, and fresh toppings, all make a difference that you can taste right away.

Houndstooth is not the only reason to visit Independence Lane, although it is the main reason. Every Sunday, Independence Lane hosts an extensive farmers market that should not be missed. The entire street is filled with vendors from all over Central Florida. Stop by for lunch at Houndstooth and grab a beer to go with your sandwich. Pick up some fresh produce, then go home and try to create your own legendary sandwich. Also, the first Friday of every month is the “Friday Night Get Down” with live music. Friday Night Get Down will re-start around September 2022, so keep your eyes peeled and hop over to Maitland for a fantastic time.
