Great breakfast to start the year

It's always good to start a new year with a good tasty breakfast and excellent coffee. That's what the Black Honey gave us. Great food and service with a smile. You would think that would be an easy thing for food service establishments to offer but more of rain than not we are disappointed. That... read more

What a nice restaurant and coffee shop. It was rainy and I was wet. They had a few seats and I decided this is the place. Needless to say I was not disappointed. The service was prompt and the food was excellent. I will be back.

Stopped at the bakery to pick up a dessert for dinner with friends. The person behind the counter was very good at explaining what was in each of the cakes, etc. Ending up purchasing what I considered an over priced dessert called Chocolate Oblivion. A couple kinds of chocolate cake topped with chocolate fudge frosting. Once we bit into it,... More

There was a really good selection of cakes to chose from in this independent coffee shop. After breakfast there wasn't a huge selection of other food, which was a shame as I fancied some more virtuous than cake this once! I had a house salad which was nice, and definitely healthy! This was paired with a really good coffee. My... More

I was on a flight home and thought wow! Peterborough has made it to an on flight magazine, so I must give this place a try. I was totally disappointed :-( The chocolate cake I ordered was their claim to fame (according to this mag) and I got the last piece. It was really dry, not to mention it looked... More

One of the staff brought desserts from Black Honey for a year end party. So fresh and delicious with quality ingredients.

I noticed this place had great reviews online, so we popped in for dessert and WOW! It smells amazing in there and everything tastes amazing too. The four of us had a butter tart, salted caramel brownie, lemon square and lavender shortbread cookie and everything was incredible. If I lived in town this place would be a regular spot for...

Lots of choice for drinks, relaxed atmosphere, delicious food. I have to eat gluten free, so their gluten free ginger cookie is always on my list.
