Honey Cafe has been on our list of places-to-go for quite some time now, so we were pleased to finally make it there for lunch today.
The cafe is light and bright inside, with vibrant yellow seats and cushions adding to the lively atmosphere. We liked the feature wall patterned with geometric shapes and the original, upturned cane baskets, which hang from the ceiling and brim with lush green foliage and leafy tendrils.
We took a seat outside in the sun, ordered a coffee and tea, and sifted through the menu. Honey offers all-day breakfast and lunch, with some unique meals such as mince on toast, and mushroom & savoury churros.
Rachel loved her breakfast platter – a tasty combination of an egg on toast, baby tomatoes, mushrooms, quinoa and spinach, alongside a pot of granola and poached fruit. I probably wouldn’t order it again, but I thought I’d try something a little different so opted for the mediterranean terrine with charred capsicums, eggplant, feta and mozzarella.
To finish off we had a slice of the gluten-free carrot cake, which was sweet and fresh. Value for money was good and the service was attentive and efficient.
All in all, a trendy and pleasant cafe that is well designed and has lots on offer. A great spot on a sunny day!
