Why Would I Want To Visit Honey Badger Café?

Quality Products All of our menu items utilize the best quality ingredients reasonably possible. We hope you can taste the difference.

Free Wireless Internet We utilize some very special technologies to make sure the WIFI connection is fast and strong.

Plenty of Outlets You need to plug in your electronics. We have outlets at just about every table.

Reasonable Prices For the attention we put into our products, we hope that you find our prices very affordable.

Local Support We support schools with fundraisers, students with their academic pursuits, and our staff members' professional growth.

Unique Atmosphere The music is a bit hipster, the art on the walls illustrative, and the crowd opinionated.

Why 'Honey Badger Café'?

As impossible as it may sound, the café was actually not named after the infamous YouTube video. The truth is, there were many events that led us to name the cafe, the Honey Badger Cafe.

The awkward space The space is the strangest we've ever seen. Super high ceilings, narrow walls covered in '80s stucco, and support beams that run down the middle.

The fires During remodeling, our negligent contractors almost burned the entire building down -- twice. Incredibly, we were saved by old and well-constructed hardwood floors.

The politics The space belongs in a carefully curated business district of Alhambra called the 'redevelopment zone'. There were many challenges to creating the right fit for the city.

With so many unfortunate variables, it would have been easy to simply give up. Except the owner is kind of dumb. He insisted on pushing through the bullshit and the negativity to create something meaningful.

So when it came time to name the café, we searched for a metaphor for 'an underdog', 'a ferocious fighter', and 'an ugly son-of-a-bitch'. And so it was named, the Honey Badger. You're welcome.

Do You Have Any Rules?

Not really. We're pretty laid back about most things.

Food and Drink from Other Places Please don't bring in food or drink that we didn't serve you. We used to be cool about this. And then we realized that we make money by selling you food and drink. Doh!

Talking Loudly / Having a Great Time Totally cool. Our staff members may offer free earplugs to other partrons who might want to study. Don't be offended by that.

Hogging the Wireless Internet If you abuse / hog our free WIFI, we reserve the right to identify you, take a photo of you, and ban you from the café.

Where Should I Park?

You can park at Alhambra Place, at the movie theatre, in the lot behind Pho 79, at the public lot behind Starbucks, or behind 41 N Garfield on Sundays.

Please do not park in the valet lot. We really do not appreciate them, and would like to see them fuck off.

Why Do You Fucking Suck So Much?

Woah. Calm down. At least you're talking to us directly and not whining on some review site. If you have a comment / question / suggestion / gripe, please talk to us. We want you to have the very best experience.

Do You Take Credit Cards?

Yes. We have a $10.00 soft minimum. That means, if you absolutely only have a credit / debit card and cannot walk down to the ATM, we will accept your card.

Why Is There So Much Profanity On This Site?

Sorry about that. You can toggle the swearing.
