Took a break from the TDI Dance Competition in which the Woodstock High Poms — sorry, Dance Team, old habits die hard — did great (to our eyes) in AAA Pom. While in Geneva, we hopped over to pick up Bette’s mom, and headed over to Honey, a new nouveau diner in the Glen Ellyn downtown area.
You walk in the corner door from the -5 wind chill and it feels like a bakery. Case with food in the front, welcoming people behind the counter. A hostess seated us. Ceiling old school tin, very sparse decorating, track lighting. Lots of wait staff in crisp white t-shirts.
We quickly got coffees – bottomless, strong and good. The menu had lots of good looking things. One was a special oatmeal, cooked then fried in a pan. Lots of good salads, sandwiches. Had to pick one.
I ordered the breakfast burrito with sausage ($8.95). Bette had the veggie burger (8.95) with fries on the side ($2.95). Grace had the steak sandwich ($12.95).
After 20 mins and another cup of coffee, the waitress brought out the two orders of fries, explaining the steak was taking a long time. We nibbled on them, they were wonderful, with some crusty salt thing and a hint of rosemary. They were, however, trending toward cold, but not cold enough to complain. They must have been sitting there waiting for the sandwiches. The table next to us spilled a huge hot chocolate and moved over and we watched them clean it up.
In all, a nice place with a good breakfast. A welcome change from the usual.
