The food was really delicious and attractively presented on the plate.... More

Honey Jam Cafe is a Breakfast/Lunch cafe. We went on a Saturday morning. The orange juice is freshsqueezed, the breakfast offerings are diverse. More is more here. Service is attentive. Decor is nice. If you'd like a special breakfast or lunch, come here.

Great breakfast every time. We visited three days. The quality, quantity and appearance were perfect. The food was always hot and delicious. I had a restrictive diet and my requests were always met. We also requested Lauren as our waitress. Her pleasant attitude and willingness to please any request kept us returning. She is the epitome of an outstanding waitress.

Honey Jam is part of the Portillos' family of restaurants. It serves breakfast and lunch with a brisk takeout service. Before you leave, they offer a "to go" cup of coffe, which our server, Lauren says makes a great hand warmer. My family and I usually go for breakfast. However diners do have the option of ordering of the lunch... More

We went to this place on the recommendation of a friend. We were not disappointed. They had gluten free pancakes which my wife try's everywhere they are available. She was not disappointed. Service was excellent. Food was great. It was brunch around 1030am.

We went as a family and had about a thirty minute wait on a Sunday near lunch time. Our waitress was very very good. Even though they were busy, our waitress took excellent care of us. The food was very good and served timely. Prices were also fair. We had a nice meal.
