Pretty much sums it up. Relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff, good food. If we lived here, we'd make it a regular stop.

Very homey atmosphere with both local families and tourists eating breakfast. Mixture of Southern style cooking and Jewish foods and we tried both. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The restaurant was advertised that a wait was normal, but we went at 10:00 AM and were seated immediately. Not fancy but comfortable.

The food was substandard. The prices were high only because of the area. I paid for the location not the food. The staff was pleasant enough but my waitress was inattentive.

I live a block away from Honey's but it took me a few months before I tried it. Mostly because there is always a line. Honey's is breakfast & lunch only and cash only. The food is wonderful and locally sourced. Service can be spotty depending on how busy it is. So go early or weekends in the summer when... More

Honey's is absolutely the best for an awesome, hearty brunch. Cute decor and the best comfort food, plus it's a BYO! My friends and I love bringing champagne and indulging in some serious brunching. The flagship in northern liberties is smaller than the south street location -- both are often crowded and don't take reservations

Place is always packed. Downside is usually the wait time. Staff are okay depending on the day. Food is beyond amazing. Spiced and cooked to near perfection. Price is reasonable. Bad spot for hangovers as it's always loud in there. Great food but look elsewhere for a great experience.

Brunch was delicious, service wasn't fantastic. Three women out for brunch, overall we enjoyed our meal. I had the eggs benedict, the challah was wonderful.

The food is great, the atmosphere is nice and relaxed. There is a wide variety of choices available for kids and adults alike. The staff was so friendly, they were even terrific when we were lingering and they wanted to be done for the day, we never felt rushed or hurried. It's just an overall great place for everyone.

Come with a full wallet. Food and drink is expensive, and they take only cash. Everything was delicious and prepared with fresh, high-quality ingredients. I had some sticker shock at $13 for corn-meal pancakes, $8 for a glass of grapefruit juice, and $3 for hot tea. That's an expensive breakfast!
