Darwin's The Hubbard Park

My favorite weekend morning activity is to walk to Darwin's to get coffee and the paper. Darwin's is a funky café that makes incredible sandwiches and also sells "local bakery breads and goodies." It was an unseasonably gorgeous day in Cambridge so after baking in the sun by the river we went to Darwin's to grab sandwiches for lunch.

I always get the same sandwich from Darwin's, The Hubbard Park. A certain meat-eater who shall remain nameless always gets something with roast beef and then admits that my Hubbard Park is better. Vegan victory!

The Hubbard Park sandwich from Darwin's is: whole wheat bread with hummus, carrots, green apple, tomato, avocado, sprouts, and honey mustard. It's hard to describe in words how good it is. One of those perfect combinations - crunchy apple, tangy honey mustard, and creamy avocado.

My sandwich was so good that I had to walk to the store to get the ingredients to make Hubbard Parks to bring to work for lunch tomorrow. After making two of these out-of-control-tasty sandwiches I had tons of leftover veggies, hummus, and honey mustard so I decided to see what else I could throw together from the remnants of my Hubbard Park inspiration. These two ridiculously delicious reincarnations are what I came up with:

1st picture above: Hubbard Park Salad with Pea Greens
2nd picture above: Open-faced Hubbard Parks on Big Wasa Crackers

One cool thing about Darwin's is that their sandwiches are named after neighborhood streets, so the Hubbard Park at the Darwin's near our apartment is called the Magnolia at the Darwin's by the Divinity School. Just a fun fact. Here are the stars of the show:

I think any combination of these ingredients would be tasty:
Green apple
Honey Mustard

  1. I know this is an old post -- but I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Hubbard Park! I miss it tremendously. Which Darwin's do you frequent? I loved them both but was partial to the one on Mt. Auburn. And please tell me you go to Veggie Planet...
