The name may sound cute-sy (it's also a Fleetwood Mac song), but Honey Hi is serious about making flavorful, healthy dishes for the Echo Park crowd. The minimalist shop features a deli case and a fridge full of locally made goods—kimchi, kombucha and vegan cheese to start. Grain bowls dominate the menu: That One Bowl is a colorful mix of quinoa, pesto kale, watermelon radish, roasted pumpkin seeds and a turmeric poached egg, while the Miso Bowl is a little more hearty, with jade rice, cabbage, carrots, shredded chicken, ginger chickpea miso and spiced almonds. A selection of tartines abound—be sure to try the freshly made chia jam with tahini, bee pollen and torn mint. And before you leave, a chocolate chip cookie—gluten-free and oh-so-gooey—is in order.

This is a great new spot in Echo Park for healthy eats. Most of the options here are inventive and well-executed, save for a couple that feel like I could make them at home. The prices are a little steep, but they're very clear about using only the best ingredients, so I get it. The shop feels a bit empty, but they've only just opened, so many more plants/decor/grab-n-go options are on their way. Regardless, I'm glad to have Honey Hi as an option! I hope they eventually start dinner service.
What a cute shop! Honey Hi is a welcome addition to Echo Park, though it definitely has room for improvement. Here's what I love: the miso bowl, the chia jam toast and the chocolate chip cookies. I tried another bowl that was a little lackluster - and the service could use some work - but I can't wait to see what else this healthy breakfast/lunch spot has coming up.
