Honey's Sit 'n Eat
Posted by Tamiz on 07/04/2010
This place is a kind of staple in the neighborhood. The cuisine is always fresh ( and I have been here 10 times over the years), and the portions are big. The variety of dishes ate very eclectic, from Spainish to southern to Kosher... all very well executed! You must get a latke with your meal, the best I have ever had and a sort of " signiture dish"!

Ilove this place. Great food and great servers. It is one of the better places that a vegetarian and a meat eater can have breakfast without a conflict. Yes there is usually a wait but it is always shorter than they estimate. The service is great, the coffee is bottomless and frequently refilled. Their biscuits are fabulous and their grits are so creamy you would swear they are made with cream. They don't rush you in or out so its a great place to have a leisurely breakfast or lunch.

Honey's was recommended by a friend who told me about the wait. When we put our name in and inquried about how long we were told about 20 minutes or a little longer (not too bad) but the very charming host suggested we go up the block to Random Tea House and also recommended the Chai. Both were wonderful suggestions and he radioed there to let us know our table was ready. We enjoyed our brunch, the "granola/hippie" customers (as one snippy reviewer categorized them), and our service was just fine and very friendly. Afterwards we took a walk to City Planter to soak in some of that lovely environment as well. All in all we had a wonderful meal and an awesome experience with Honey's and the surrounding area.

My family and I went for breakfast, though by the time we were sat it was lunch. We were told by a "snippy" host that the wait would be 40min, 2 hours later we were seated. The place is popular, I get it however they could have given us a more acurate wait time. Not to mention there is no place to wait and it was 19 degrees out and I have 2 small hungry kids! So when our table was ready, right next to the kitchen doors, that hit my chair every time someone came out of the kitchen. Our server was great, very prompt and attentive. Food was good very creative diner homestyle type food. Prestley pancakes were great! Ruben just ok. Bacon cheese fries were great. The chicken fried steak needed major salt. Overall the food is good, if you can stand all the granola/ hippie type people that the place is packed with, and if you have half a day to waste.

This has some great down home cooking. I highly recommend the breakfast bomb. Weekends are especially busy, but the host was very nice and attentive. After waiting our server was polite and was always ready to refill our coffee. I would go again and again. Such good Hashbrowns!

Honey's is what every diner should be mandated to be or be forced to close - simply to preserve the General Good. <g> Because let's face it: diners in general have become total crap. Let us all heartedly Thank God that Honey's has it's excellent and interesting food - never the 'same old tired'. And . . . it's available morning-to-night. Great staff and service too. "Oh no! A crowd of people eager to eat at a great restaurant! Who ever heard of such a thing?" Who thinks this way? <g> Look; if you don't go to Honey's - it will certainly be Your loss.

Great home-style-eclectic-fusion type eatery. A bit crammed inside but great food and good service. A great place to go with a friend or two or to take your mom (which is what I normally do).
