Honeybee Burger in Los Feliz is the latest eatery to serve fast food favorites with a plant-based twist. From meatless patties topped with house-made sauces to vanilla soft serve dipped in chocolate, this buzzy restaurant is filling hungry Angelenos with classic drive-thru deliciousness that just so happens to be vegan.
Whether you’re all about In-N-Out Burger or a devout Impossible burger enthusiast, Honeybee’s yellow, bee-themed burger joint will make you feel like you’re exactly where you should be.
While there’s no scientific proof that the cute sayings on the wall like “No Cow All Wow,” the adorable bee designs, and the friendly employees make these delicious handhelds taste better than the competition, we’d argue that they do.
The short and sweet menu is divided into burgers, sides, and shakes/soft-serve, all of which are worth ordering, so plan accordingly. Even better, if you can’t decide which plant-based patty you love more (Beyond and Impossible 2.0), you’re in luck because Honeybee serves both. Feeling indecisive? Order the $5 sliders so you can have one of each.
And when you come across the "frots" don’t let the name scare you away, they’re a combination of sweet potato tots and fries that strike the perfect balance between crispy and tender.
You’ll want to make sure you save room for dessert — the sweet gem on the menu is their signature “yella” vanilla soft serve that’s made from coconuts and live probiotic cultures. No worries if you prefer a straw to a spoon or a cone, they also offer three types of milkshakes (vanilla, orange, and chocolate) made with the same creamy “yella” base as their incredible soft serve.
Fitt Tip: on the off chance you over indulge and need to make a pit stop post burger, Honeybee’s is located between a movie theater and Skylight Books, one of the coziest independent bookstores in LA.
