After hearing a lot of rave reviews we checked this place out. It was good. Not great. Just good. They screwed up my wife’s order but fixed it and mine was no better than anywhere else. The place is dark inside, looks like a chalet...and seemed worn and dirty. You won’t miss by eating here but we won’t be rushing back either.More

Our family was looking for a breakfast place as we were traveling through the area. Honey Jam has a great menu with many choices. All of us enjoyed our selection and we received a lot of food for the price. I chose the California crepes...and was happy with my order. It comes with two crepes and hash browns. Hot chai latte was yummy and prefect on a fall day.l The outdoor seating was spaced nicely to keep diners safe. Tables and chairs are basic.More

Review is for new Honey Jam in Naperville IL. Know this is a new location, but today’s experience deserves some criticism. Order arrived with eggs but not my pancakes. By time pancakes came eggs were cold. Asked for 2 hot eggs and they warmed up...my old eggs. My poached eggs turned into hard boiled eggs as they were just warmed up, not replaced. Pancakes were thick and heavy. Could only eat 1/2 of one. Fruit cup was a little light on fruit. Had exact same breakfast 2 weeks ago at Downers restaurant on Butterfield. Was excellent.More

Our waitress Katie actually gets 5 stars. The food was delicious and they would have gotten five stars if the outdoor dining experience was a little bit better. The tables look like party rentals with torn plastic covers. Kind of made me question the cleanliness....But the food was superb and so was the serviceMore

Great breakfast. They had a chicken fried steak on the menu, so I had to try it. Nice and crispy with eggs and sides make for a filling meal. Highly recommend. Had a large tent set up for out door seating during this COVID time.

Server was fabulous & kind, food was served very quickly, it was just mostly cold. Pancakes were stone cold like they had been sitting out waiting for me to order. Hashed browns were crispy on top, cold on bottom. Eggs were cooked to order, everything...else seems like it was served from a previously cooked batch. Requested new pancakes and they were brought out super fast, warm, but thin and uneventful. There is constantly a wait at this restaurant and I was completely under-whelmed. Kind of a bummer.More

Food and service were excellent. My husband loved the chicken and waffles. Even though it was very busy, we had great service.

My party of six ate brunch on Saturday 11/2/2019 for our weekend trip. The wait was around 30 minutes but the service and food was very good. They were accommodating with special requests and answered our questions about the menu; which there was quite a...bit to choose from. From the Honeyjam Waffle to the Egg sandwich, there is something for everyone.More

After being gone for more than three years, the place is unchanged except for prices. Upon arrival, I was greeted politely, taken to a table by the fireplace, and was able to order quickly. My food arrived quickly in generous portions. Big slab of ham...steak, pot of coffee, plenty of hash browns.More

The family decided to eat out on their last day here as others were joining us to say their good-byes and so on my granddaughters suggestion we headed to Honey-Jam Cafe. They offer a very interesting selection of pancakes and waffles and that seemed to...be a popular pick with the young adults all of which said they were very good. The adults ordered a few diiferent egg dishes which all said were good and the portions on all the items ordered were generous.I would recommend this location to those traveling through this area. Safe travels to all!More
