Bright and sunny addition to the Bruntsfield scene with strong breakfast options, cheerful lunches and homemade baking and ice-cream.

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2018 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £7.95 (+p&p).

In its enviably sun-soaked spot set back from busy Bruntsfield place, bright and cheery Honeycomb & Co blurs the distinction between café and bistro. Mornings see a concise breakfast menu, including choices like shakshuka, granola and avo toast. Lunch sees a handful of seasonally changing plates like macaroni, pho and lamb salad (if you’re lucky, the shakshuka may still be on for lunch). Apart from a Company Bakery sourdough, everything is made in-house including ice-cream whipped up in the discarded machines they found languishing in the basement. There’s a lot of experience and thought gone into this venture and it shows – not least in the pricing. That said, the confident, well-sourced food and sunny welcome means locals are positively buzzing about it.
