The Sun Inn Tavern: A SUNsational Culinary Experience

I had the pleasure of eating lunch at the Sun Inn Tavern recently, and let me tell you, they did not disappoint.

The service was amazing. Every customer seemed pleased and had immaculate-looking dishes on their tables. I sat outside with my family and it was very relaxing. We listened to some quiet tunes and felt the afternoon breeze. It was very refreshing.

The first item I tried was the Tavern Jerky Board, which consisted of homemade beef jerky, gouda, pepper jack, candied walnut, spicy pickles, grainy mustard, dried cranberry, and toast points (crusty bread).

The mustard was amazing, especially on the crusty toast points. 

I could have eaten a whole meal of just the mustard, spicy pickles, and bread. I wish I could have bought a tub of that mustard and a loaf of that bread. 

The bread was moist and crusty and just overall perfectly baked. 

Insert Oprah quote: “I. Love. Bread. I love bread.”

My main meal was the Lafayette sandwich. Oh. My. God. I almost cried tears of joy eating this. 

The sandwich had shaved strip steak, gouda sauce, tarragon butter, and au jus on an Italian roll. Just thinking about it is making my mouth water. 

The meat was perfectly seasoned and the gouda sauce wasn’t overwhelming the meat. I dipped my sandwich in the au jus which was the best decision I could have ever made with a meal.

This was practically a fancy cheesesteak, but I am not upset about it. I could have eaten at least two more of them. 

The sandwich also came with a salad with a white balsamic dressing. I scarfed that down so fast because the dressing was beautiful. 

If and when I go again I think I would try putting the salad on the sandwich to see if it enhances the experience in any way.

The final dish of my lunch was a no-flour chocolate cake. 

Screaming. Crying. Ascending to heaven.

This cake was stupefying. It practically had the texture of a cheesecake and had a chocolate drizzle on top. I am obsessed with chocolate so this made my brain and taste buds fly into outer space. 

The Sun Inn Tavern is definitely worth every penny that you could spend there and any food coma you may experience. It is located at 564 Main St, Bethlehem, PA 18018. Phone number: (610) 419-8600
