Went there for a snack and really enjoyed their Sweet Potato Scone. Also very good cinnamon muffin. A few months before, though, we tried their gluten free bread and it was virtually unedible....looked great, but it was dry and totally fell apart. Maybe they've improved on it since then. Gluten free bread is always challenging.

Away for the weekend looking for the Butter tart trail. Black Honey tarts were well worth the hunt. I have always been used to the traditional tart with raisins or currants these had neither and were awesome.

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

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.

Thank Omar B
