We went here not knowing what to expect. I am picky when it comes to breakfast joints. This place wowed me! I will go back again!

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.

This eatery is VERY busy on Sunday mornings. After a 40 minute wait we were hungry. Our waitress was so friendly and accommodating giving us extra time to examine the many offerings they had. (We had not eaten there before.) Breakast was very good

Not only was the staff tentative the link sausages was out of this world. However what impressed me the most was you were asked if you would like coffee to go and also coffee was available in the entrance way before you get into the restaurant.

Never in my life have I ever waited 40 min for breakfast. I'm sure glad we did. The entire staff was great. Our server Debbie (I think) was super helpful and far beyond helpful.

The entire experience at Honey Jam was excellent. It has a warm and inviting ambience with a lovely fireplace in the center of the main dining room. There is a very pleasing and unusual ceiling treatment of earth tone draped material which softens the atmosphere and noise level. The sedate tile and stained glass are attractive. Christiana was one of... More
