The foo dis good but because they are so busy there could be a long line to get in and the service is a little slow. If you're not in a hurry this is a great breakfast place.

Excellent atmosphere, with lovely inviting dark wood and fireplace. Hosts and servers all very pleasant at each of our visits. The menu is quite extensive (serving both breakfast and lunch - believe they close around 2:30.) with crepe, pancake, egg dishes. The savory crepes and Italian omelet are a favorite. I will admit their pancakes are iffy, one time they... More

Went here for a brunch with some out of town visitors and they treated us very well. The service was very good, the food was good and the prices were reasonable for a party of seven.

Way too many other way better breakfast joint in the area that know how to do breakfast right and do it much faster. Service was way, way too slow for breakfast and no obvious excuse as the place wasn't particularly full or busy. Serving size vs food quality vs price = very poor value. Most of the breakfast competitors give... More

Totally do not get all there at reviews. It only gets the two stars because our server was great. The mouse level was distracting. All of the egg dishes ordered by our group were runny and with little flavor. The added ingredients were not fresh. The salad entrees were likewise unimpressive. You can get a better salad at most area... More

Make your way over to Honey Jams to experience the food, worth the wait. They're always crowded, but that's the sign of a good thing! They have excellent reviews, great food, fast & friendly service, with reasonable prices...what more could you ask for?

We discovered this gem as it was very close to our hotel. What a find. First off you must know we visited Chicago during a foot plus snow storm, so coming into a restaurant with a cozy fire was wonderful. Even though it was a rather large establishment it felt quaint, not overbearing. We had crepes, belgian waffles, a number... More

My daughter convinced me to go there with her and my two grandchildren. The food was very good, but you have to go very early so there is no wait. When we left, there were people waiting everywhere.

We have only had breakfast here a few times but had great experiences each time. Good food, nice menu, quick service, reasonable price. It is close to several hotels in the Downers Grove area and worth a little bit of a drive if you are looking for a good place.
