Saturdays are generally a day to relax and have brunch and well Chicago suburbs do have a lot of breakfast joints to offer. But for some reason we had restricted ourselves to one from past many months till last week, when we got to know about this place from Zomato and couldn’t resist ourselves.
Honey Jam Cafe, its a perfect place to have breakfast and brunch on weekends as well as on weekdays.
It was 11 am and as we have expected the place was almost full. The ambiance is bit dark, but space wise they have ample seating space.
They took roughly 5 minutes to get us seated and after that we ordered 2 coffee(bottomless), they do have other options to choose from like fresh fruit juice,soda,lemonade etc. but we have a preference of coffee over others always. As most of other breakfast joints this one also has a lot to offer and the menu is quite extensive.
They offer a wide variety of pancakes, waffles, crepes, french toast, benedicts, omelettes, skillets, fritatas, burgers and sandwiches etc. So,we did what we always do, choose the specialty/signature dishes of the restaurant and taste the best they have.
We ordered San Francisco Chicken melt, Monkey Waffle & Red Velvet french toast with cream cheese,strawberry & chocolate sauce.
Monkey Waffle was a pure blend of sweetness with freshness of fruits topped with smooth peanut butter sauce. It was as good as it looked, totally mouthwatering !!!!
We have tasted a wide variety of french toasts. But while going through the menu my eyes stopped over this one, Red Velvet french toast, stuffed with cream cheese.. and the fusion of this delight doesn’t ends here !!! It was topped with fresh strawberries and chocolate sauce. The best french toast I had till date.
San Francisco Chicken Melt, a combination of grilled chicken breast with ham, cheddar cheese and tomatoes, serves on grilled wheat and it comes with fries(sides). The chicken was tender,full of flavors & best of all it just melted in my mouth.
Overall, this place has got everything what you can expect from a breakfast joint.The only con was the service which was a bit slow, didn’t liked it. But surely we would like to try out more of their signature dishes on our next visit.
If you are in western Chicago suburbs then surely make a visit to Honey Jam Cafe,Downers Grove, they are also located in Bollingbrook.
Please feel free to leave your suggestions or recommendations, they are very valuable for us.
