Honey B'S Cafe has the best homemade food on Fleming Island Florida and in the entire Orange Park area. The tradition of Honey B's homemade food started several generations ago and continues today with the third and fourth generation of the Robbins family.
Honey B's Cafe opened over a year ago at its location at 3535 Highway 17, Fleming Island, Florida. Its predecessor, The Sister's Tea Room, closed in late 2005 with a promise of opening in a new location in a few months. Those few months turned into years and finally last year, Holly Kelly and her two children, Heather and Ben, opened a new restaurant on Fleming Island.
The Sister's Tea Room was in business over 30 years in a quaint house on Highway 17 that is now the site of a doctor's office. Bobbie Jo Robbins (Holly's mom) and Gwen Chojnacki opened the Sister's Tea Room in 1974. Holly worked in the Tea Room from the very beginning and eventually took over pie making duties from Gwen.
Speaking of pie, the Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie ls legendary in these parts. Though The Sister's was mainly the domain of women, men would venure forth with the promise of Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie. Men are much more comfortable at the new Honey B's Cafe, although it's still a favorite for the ladies.
The original recipes are in use again at Honey B's Cafe, and area residents couldn't be happier. The famous Chicken Salad and Frozen Fruit Salad luncheon plate still makes me hungry. The chicken pot pie is homemade and marvelous! The menu has expanded to incorporate the tastes of today, but the homemade flavor is still as consistent as ever.
If you're new to the area or just want the best homemade food that Fleming Island has to offer, come on by. You'll be glad you did. Today, some of the ladies in our Bible Study had breakfast. I had Eggs Benedict and it was delicious! The home fries were the best I have ever eaten. I tried to get a photo with Holly, but she was busy in the kitchen getting ready for lunch. The crowds were already coming in when we left.
Honey B's Cafe also has English Tea on Saturday from 3:00-6:00. Reservations are required for English Tea.
