I was a Honey Bear fan way back when they were near Green Lake. Used to get up early and trek there from my old Capitol Hill apartment to get warm pumpkin muffins. Then they closed. And I was sad.
A few years ago the Honey Bear re-opened in Third Place Book at Ravenna. Great space. Same great food.
My wire and I are pumpkin muffin fans. I sometimes throw in a currant scone for variety. My boys love the cinnamon rolls, with icing of course.
They've got just enough seating, particularly if you go earlier. Once it gets crowded the protocol is to grab empty chairs at the bigger tables, which means you get to meet new people. Oh, and they started offering wi-fi a while back, which is a mixed blessing (you can work, but seating doesn't turn over as fast).
