Now is the Time. Memphis is the Place.

Eating at HM Dessert Lounge

The HM Dessert Lounge is a pretty chic café located in Midtown on Madison Avenue. It’s small and gives a down home vibe.  The décor of the lounge is really nice and reminds me of something I might see in a magazine. 

Now despite the name of the restaurant, their menu offers much more than sweet treats. In fact, most of the menu items are not desserts. The menu includes a variety of specialty waffles,  different styles of chicken, Southern style pork chops, smothered chicken liver & onions, and salmon croquette to name a few.

If you’ve been following me for a while now, then I’m sure you could guess which items I ordered from the menu. I’ll give you a second to think about it. Have you guessed it yet? Yes, No, maybe so. Well if you guessed Chicken and waffle then you got it right! I know, I know, someone is reading this and thinking or saying out loud, “She’s always eating chicken and waffles’. I can’t help it. I truly love chicken and waffles. Chicken and waffles will always be my favorite southern comfort food.

I do want to note that the one thing that truly sets apart HM Dessert Lounge’s chicken and waffles from other restaurants is the flavor selection of the chicken. Patrons can choose from flavors like southern fried style, peach glazed, jerk, double fried honey hot, sriracha mango, smothered, sweet & tangy Texas BBQ, and lemon pepper.

I look forward to going back and trying out more of their desserts. My mouth waters every time I see a picture of one their desserts.
