Honeycomb & Co
Bright and sunny addition to the Bruntsfield scene with strong breakfast options, cheerful lunches and honeyed homemade baking and ice-cream.
With sunshine yellow seats and a picture-perfect cake counter, this is indeed a sweet spot among the throng of Bruntsfield eateries. Equally tempting breakfast and lunch menus mean that Honeycomb & Co really is buzzing all day. Inspired French toast and bacon, with a sticky chilli jam, generous pepperings of spices, seeds and tahini yoghurt, is served happily morning and noon. The sweet-toothed have the happy choice of a chocolate cardamom honey bun or pistachio, carrot, and coconut morsels. Owner Ian D’Annunzio-Green’s affiliation with ethical business Plan Bee makes for an obvious focus on the sweet stuff but savoury options are no less creative. Take the popular North African dish of shakshuka, which can be made into a shak and black with the addition of black pudding. Hospitality is competently professional but exudes warmth, both from the attentive staff and details like baskets of hot-water bottles at the door for al fresco diners.
