When you arrive there are alot of different coffees on the coffee station,we grabbed coffee and proceeded to the counter to place our order. Honeys has all the... read more

If you like comfort food, this is the place for you. The pancake stacks are big, the sandwitches large, and the salads huge and healthy! They have a list of daily specials written on a wall chart. There are many coffee choices on canisters on a shelf along the wall. The place is old with lots of rustic wood decor... More

Nice place for breakfast. Order at the counter, then pick a seat and they'll bring it to you. Quite a few beverage options - different coffees, teas, etc.

This is a breakfast must! If you don't want a huge crowd, either go early or try a week day. They have pretty good gluten free options as well.

It goes without stating that most positive reviews are ardent advocates of any given establishment. In this case, I cannot support this perspective. Honey Bistro and Bakery is average at best. To wit; no table service, self service coffee and average food served by the cubic foot. If these are your criteria for excellent, them you have found your culinary... More

Honey's is one of the great Encinitas traditions. Opens at 5:30 am in case you've got early munchies. Great fries potatoes. Terrific omelettes and scrambles, several kind of eggs benedict (and you can get Half orders), friendly service, fresh donuts, just a great place...no fancy cuisine, just your neighborhood breakfast bar with a feeling of "home"

This place is amazing!! The food was fabulous and the prices were so reasonable!! Fresh juices and a great selection of different takes on eggs benedict...the lobster benedict was the best I have ever had! The colorful murals on the wall depicts the lifestyle of Encinitas...surfing, yoga, healthy living, sunshine & beach life.

Stopped by for late morning, so some had breakfast and others had lunch. Lots of daily specials in addition to what is on the menu. Order at the desk and they deliver to your table. This is a beach cafe, so very casual. Tables both inside and outside. Inside is cramped and the place is busy, but the food is... More

Seemed highly recommended so we had to try it. Went early on a weekday morning and wasn't busy at all. Huge coffee selection. Excellent menu selection. Went with hash and eggs for me and ABC croissant for my wife. Both were great and big portions as well. Food arrived quickly and staff there was nice. Want to go back soon!
