I lived in Glen Ellyn for a year just over two blocks from Honey. It was fantastic to be so close and I ended up eating there about once a week or once every other week. They serve as much local and organic as they can and offer vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free items.
The cafe itself is located in historic downtown Glen Ellyn, a beautiful neighborhood of old buildings and cute shops. It's a nice area to stroll around on the weekends.
The food at Honey is like a siren song to me - I can't stay away. I'm a vegetarian and Honey's menu offers many, many options for vegetarians. I'm particularly partial to their veggie burgers (they make their own with veggies and spices), which are huge, delicious, just spectacular; the pesto grilled cheese; and the sweet potato fries. I've also enjoyed their beet salad and any time they do a risotto. The menu changes regularly with seasonal options, so there's always something new to try.
Honey is also great for breakfast with some lovely omelette combinations and eggs on a motorcycle with rosemary.
For drinks, at breakfast I like the personal french press of coffee or the chai latte. They offer local beers as well, with a selection that changes regularly. The wine menu is small, but generally pairs well with their menu and is affordable.
The servers are great, a lot of them really friendly, funny, and full of personality. It can get really crowded on Sundays at brunch time (LOTS of families from churches in the area) but I've never had to wait for a seat.
In all, a great local find with lots of fresh, delicious options and a nice atmosphere. I will always look forward to going back.
