Came for brunch. I got the Cobb Salad, which was great. My fellow guests got the Apple Cinnamon Pancake (which the restaurant is reknown for) and an egg breakfast combo. Everyone was happy. The service was great and we were not rushed despite staying past...More

We were looking for a not-too-fussy brunch place that was nicer than a diner, and Honey Jam fit the bill! Everyone enjoyed their meals (we had some breakfast orders and some lunch orders); I particularly enjoyed my veggie skillet--it wasn't enormous, like some I've had,...More

This was our first time eating at a Honey Jam restaurant, and we would definitely return if in the area again. Not cheap, but all of us from age 10 through adults enjoyed our meals - one person is gluten free and has good options...More

Everything here is fantastic! And the service is excellent. Tons of pancake options. Their omelettes are the best. Fresh OJ. Huge portions.

We’ve given this place so many chances to impress us over the years, and still don’t get it. The only reason we gave it another chance was because of a gift card. Husband had sausage and eggs and said they were ok (who can ruin...More

The Honey Jam Cafe is near Oak Brook Mall and close to downtown Downer's Grove. It is a large restaurant with a high two-story ceiling and lots of cheerful pictures. The menu is huge, including several Benedict choices, a chose-your-own skillet, and a variety of...More

Everyone & everything was great! Very wide selection, but we came in for breakfast & it was perfect. Have to admit, I usually get just plain pancakes with bacon every time I get breakfast out anywhere. By far the best bacon ever! Tasted my daughters...More

Very nice room, probably suited for dinner over breakfast. Lots of interesting items on breakfast menu. I really thought the potato pancake sandwich was very unique and very tasty, would order again. Downside few smaller size less $$ items on menu, most around $10.00. Still...More
