I stopped in here for a quick breakfast. The person who seated me ended up also being my server, as well as the cashier when I was leaving. It appeared that there was only one other server in the restaurant at the time (not all that long after it opened for the day). The hostess/server/cashier (if I remember correctly, her... More

Not sure if they were sold with portillos but it was around that time that I noticed a change. Quality was good but not AS GOOD as it was before. My standard was the Julien which is a egg Benedict with spinach.

Honey jam Café has the most delicious breakfast I've ever had. My kids love the kids meals and my husband and I love the skillets. They have fresh squeezed orange juice that is really good also.

But we each ended up with eggs (our own style), toast, fruit, and bacon served with a smile and some friendly words by our professional waitress.

New Year Breakfast is here every year. They never disappoint. Try the sunrise cooler as a refreshing option besides OJ.

The staff works very hard to make sure you get in and get your food ASAP. The food is great the wait staff is pleasantl and efficient. If you want good food, and great service with a touch of family. Honey jam in Downers is you place. Call ahead they are busy for a reason.

My first visit to Honey JAM was a wonderful experience. I thought the decor was charming plus the Xmas decorations are first class beautiful. The hostess and server were helpful, friendly, highly skilled. I was stunned by the extent and variety of the menu, it made my mouth water. 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.

Came here for a business breakfast and it was very good. Had the Vegetable Omelet with diced potatoes and toast. I will return again and have something for lunch.
