Honeycomb & Co

1 Merchiston Pl
EH10 4NP
Open: Every day
Coffee: Artisan Roast
Also: Meals, cakes
Coolness: Streamlined, day-time opulence - for decor & menu alike

Honeycomb & Co. (3♥) is a cafe style restaurant (modern eatery) in bustling Bruntsfield on the corner of Merchiston Place and Montpelier Park.

They're friendly, service-oriented and use local roaster Artisan Roast, offering well-made espresso-based coffees.

You can eat and drink inside, or out the front on the spacious pavement area flanked by potted greenery. The decor and design is smart, warm and shiny. With honey as their theme, they've incorporated gold into their ochre soft furnishings, brass counter edges and feature wall, and the large windows, linear styling and plenty of height and white keep it chirpy.

The food is wholesome, varied and tasty - in a sort of Scottish-produce-meets-Ottolenghi way. The breakfast options should satisfy most with baked items (including their signature honey bun), porridge, fried breakfast, shashuka and avocado on toast among others. And the snacks and lunches tempt you with tasty, sharing and individual plates of fusion flavoured and inventive, chunky veggies, salads, grains and meat choices. From za'atar, to vinaigrette, skewered chicken to rainbow trout.

And then there's the cake display - which is equally eye popping

All up Honeycomb & Co. is a winner!
