1. Rhythm on Monroe

Sandwiches, Steaks

Rhythm on Monroe Drinks, Huntsville, Alabama

Rhythm on Monroe is one of Huntsville’s hottest rooftop bars and restaurants. In the dining room downstairs, you can get music-inspired dishes from burgers and sandwiches to filets and pork chops.

Up at the rooftop bar, space is first-come-first-served, and you can order from a small shareable menu and delicious cocktail and beer menu.

Honest Coffee Roasters is a local hotspot serving food, acai bowls, and of course plenty of delicious coffee. The is the place to go in Downtown Huntsville for ethically sourced coffee that is meticulously roasted and expertly brewed.

For an honestly tasty breakfast, try the Bom Bom Bowl with acai, cacao powder, granola, bananas, strawberries, almonds, cacao nibs, and local honey. For lunch, try the Chicken Basil Pesto Panini with chicken, basil pesto, Havarti cheese, spinach, and tomato pressed on naan bread.

I recommend trying the Hot Chocolate on a cold winters day.

Sandwiches, Comfort Food

Sandwich at Melt, Huntsville, Alabama

MELT is a delicious concept that originally began in 2011 as a grilled cheese food truck. The food truck is retired now, but MELT has three brick-and-mortar locations in Alabama serving classic comfort food with a twist.

You can still get a Classic Grilled Cheese, but I highly recommend branching out and trying any of their other amazing sandwiches.

I recommend trying the Ole Smokey or the Chicken Pesto sandwiches.

Their menu offers an array of burgers made with 100% American Wagyu beef. Their simple and basic burgers are all created with a twist on an American classic.

Oshi Poke Bowl and Sushi has a swanky corner location in Downtown Huntsville. You can grab a sushi roll at the sushi bar while you dine under a digital fish bowl projected on the ceiling; or you can create your own sushi bowl, grab a boba tea, or have a warm bowl of ramen.

This is only one of a couple places where you can get a poke bowl in the city. They have a number of signature bowls, or you can build your own. They also have Sushiritos, a burrito version of your favorite sushi rolls.

I recommend building your own bowl, but if you want to try a signature, then go for the Ohhh Oh Oh bowl.

It’s a small space with limited seating and a large island bar. Their menu features a lot of vodka-centric cocktails, beer on tap, and classic American and Southern food. When the weather is nice, they’ll roll up the large garage doors on the front wall for the perfect view of the bustling downtown street below.

I recommend getting the Southern Fried Chicken with roasted green beans and mashed potatoes with gravy.

This all-in-one spot has limited seating. There’s a bar, lounge seating, and a few tables. Their food menu is small, too, with a few starters and sharables like pretzel bites or loaded fries, and main dishes like a burger, steak, and a flatbread. They have nightly specials, as well.

I recommend getting the Standard Cheeseburger and their Pretzel Bites.
