The Honeypot on Lichfield was a great favourite for brunch and we had high hopes that it would be just as good in its new place on Colombo but we have been disappointed both times we have been there. Today we arrived just before 12 looking for brunch only to be told that the brunch menu stopped at 11.30 and... More

After going to Honey Pot Cafe for a takeaway coffee on a weekday and being greeted by friendly staff and quick service, we decided to go back for breakfast on a Sunday. When ordering, we were told our food would be a 30 minute wait on our food as we hadn't made a booking, we said that was ok, despite... More

Average coffee. Great eggs benedict. Only 1 chef to feed full restaurant. 40 min wait but a 20% discount for the wait made up for it a bit. OK

Not a very friendly atmosphere. Staff seem more interested in socialising than providing good service. Coffee was burnt and way too hot. Cold toast and poorly poached eggs. Needless to say I wont be back.

I have been a faithful devotee of the Honey Pot since its Lichfield Street days. Met my sis and bro in law here for brunch. All were very happy with our choices. The staff were friendly and efficient as ever.

Popped in for a late lunch and found staff friendly and polite. Not sure why other reviews have said poor service as we found it fine on quite a busy day. I am vegetarian and had the Roast Beetroot salad which was full of delicious taste surprises right to the last bite. NOT one of those boring salads whets all... More

Nice wee cafe with lovely atmosphere. The owner needs to update the location site address. It took a while to be given a menu even though they gave us water on arrival and I was about to go and ask for a menu when they came at last. The waitress was pleasant and our lunch dishes were tasty. Main lunch... More
