“My wife loves it”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2012

This is a cute little place with an awesome bakery display. My wife loves it, and we've come here with her friends for dinner several times. Each time it's a treat with an eclectic selection of unique dishes.

“Hit and miss”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2012 via mobile

I really want to love this place, but the service is continually slow, and of the 6-8 times I have eaten here, they always make a mistake on someone's order at our table. I have ordered the same thing on three different occasions and found it to be very different each time. Sometimes good, and then very forgettable at another time. Wish they were more consistent.

“Great Cupcakes and Hors-d` Oeuvres”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2012

We went for a private gathering, and their party room is wonderful! The side is all windows so the room is bright and feels almost like you are outside! The staff was amazingly attentive with drinks and tasty bits to eat, and then came the desserts~cupcakes! Try the red velvet! Since these were mini's you could taste a couple and not feel guilty doing it. The Asian influence in the food and the sauces was obvious, and really tasty. The cupcakes alone would have been well worth the trip. Definitely a place to go back to and try a meal, and of course, cupcakes. They cater, you can take away, or dine in. Glen Ellyn has some cute little shops that look worth investigating too!

“Fresh and YUMMY”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2012

If I ever opened a restaurant, I would want it to be just like Honey. It was one of those places where I wanted every other thing on the menu: all the food was fresh, light, and full of perfectly balanced flavors. The chicken and salmon sandwiches were both tasty and filling, without being too heavy for a lunch-time meal. The restaurant was spacious and nicely decorated, full of light and nice, sweet touches, like succulents for sale and a yummy-looking dessert cabinet. The service was excellent- our waitress was attentive, but laid-back, and made excellent recommendations. It was overall a wonderful experience.
