Honeyberry Cafe, a new breakfast and lunch restaurant, has opened on Rand Road in Arlington Heights, where the former Max & Erma's sat empty for more than five years.

The restaurant is owned by Tim Panagakis, whose family also owns La Tascain downtown Arlington Heights and the Black Cow in Mount Prospect.

"I have been in Arlington Heights for 40 years and it's a good town so we thought this was a good idea," Panagakis said.

Honeyberry Cafe, 306 E. Rand Road, serves typical breakfast dishes, salads, paninis and wraps along with daily fresh-squeezed orange and grapefruit juice. Prices range from $6 to $10 for meals.

"We've only been open a few days, but it's going better than we expected. We've had a lot of friendly people," Panagakis said.

Business and Development Coordinator John Melaniphy said he thinks the formerly-vacant space looks "spectacular' and that he's glad to have a great tenant like Honeyberry join the shopping center.

Honeyberry Cafe is open 6:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily.
