Had 3 types of cookies on the run, as dessert after Karma's Thai next door. Typically I have any of the bars or tarts and they are amazing. The cookies, not so much. They are good and homemade, of course, but nothing special. The lemon lavender shortbread was the best - delicate and smooth. The double chocolate was chewy and... More

Great stop in after dinner elsewhere for some cheesecake! Ordered a cake for my aunt's birthday this weekend and looking forward to yumminess.

I used to work near Black Honey and I went there every couple of weeks for their specialty coffees. In the fall, they serve pumpkin-spice lattes. At Christmas time they may have a special coffee with candy canes in it. You can always tweak an order by asking for a double shot of expresso in a latte. They have a... More

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 have never been the case... 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
