Good breakfast menu and good food once you get in. Hour or more wait on Sunday morning did not put us in a good mood to begin with. Group of 8 probably did not help. Food took awhile to come out and they forgot about someone's toast. Just one of those days I'll guess.

looks good! Their breakfasts and lunches are all tasty, no doubt. I do question the prices. I often dine at another place nearby and always have the same thing -- bacon and eggs, toast, coffee. The prices at Honey Jam were $2 more than the other. Not complaining about the food, just the price. AND, Honey Jam (as well as... More

Honey Jam Cafe is an extremely popular spot for breakfast at the weekends, with typical wait times at the weekend in the 30-40 minute range. Fortunately, they do call-ahead seating. Although the parking lot is a good size, it gets full at the weekend and we had to park on the street. Having called ahead, we were seated fairly shortly... More

I stopped in here for a quick breakfast. The person who seated me ended up also being my server, as well as the cashier when I was leaving. It appeared that there was only one other server in the restaurant at the time (not all that long after it opened for the day). The hostess/server/cashier (if I remember correctly, her... More

The staff and atmosphere was great, very friendly, warm and inviting. The breakfast came out with the omlet missing (family of 4) and the other food was just inder warm. I ordere eggs over medium and they came out over easy, bacon was way under cooked and I like my bacon chewy. Waffles were fine nothing spectacular, egg tacos were... More

Not sure if they were sold with portillos but it was around that time that I noticed a change. Quality was good but not AS GOOD as it was before. My standard was the Julien which is a egg Benedict with spinach.

Honey jam Café has the most delicious breakfast I've ever had. My kids love the kids meals and my husband and I love the skillets. They have fresh squeezed orange juice that is really good also.

It takes a while to get thru the large menu with so many good sounding offerings! But we each ended up with eggs (our own style), toast, fruit, and bacon served with a smile and some friendly words by our professional waitress. Not an easy job but done with a smile and a cheerful voice - so nice. The decor... More

New Year Breakfast is here every year. They never disappoint. Try the sunrise cooler as a refreshing option besides OJ.
