Best modern breakfast in Encinitas

Honey's gets super busy on the weekends and it's quite small so securing a table can be a bit stressful. Also you have to go up to order which can add to the stress.

The food is very tasty and their coffee bar offers a lot of choices. Prices are reasonable and they have an extensive menu. The problem is poor service. We have eaten here several times before and the service was ok. Today we came for brunch and the service was awful! No one smiled or asked us if we needed anything.... More

Great, fresh with abundant portions. I had the California Scramble and it was heaping with all that it promised. I saw a grilled tuna salad go by to another guest and it was equally huge! On a Sunday it was super busy but it all works. Place your order, find a table and before you know it your order will... More

I like this place a lot. Finally got my husband to go back here with me and the food was great (we split because the portions are large). We were early enough (before 9 am) that there was only 1 person in line ahead of us and tables available! One of the best breakfast places around for sure.
