If you’re on the hunt for an independent yet Instagramable café that serves the most delicious food and tasty drinks, then Honey & Harvey is the place to go.
Since opening their doors to the people of Woodbridge and beyond in 2011, the independent café has expanded with another premise in Melton and there is even talk of expanding further afield. The mix of industrial and shabby chic interior makes it perfect for a catch up with friends that can make it onto your Instagram or the perfect setting to get some much needed work done with Wifi available and comfy chairs.
Even on a rainy summer day in August, it was bustling with groups of friends, families and couples of all ages. The queue was nearly out the door but that didn’t slow down the excellent and speedy service that was received. Serving food from breakfast to lunch, Honey & Harvey caters for any time of the day where you feel the urge to settle down to shelter from the rain or relax in their back garden in the sun. Be sure to follow them on their social pages too as there is always announcements of special evening events that aren’t to be missed.
For me the stand out items from the café is always going to be the homemade selection of cakes and pastries that are always on offer on the front counter. Most cater for those with dietary needs such as gluten free, vegan and lactose free clearly marked before ordering. It is priced reasonably for an occasional treat that you’ll be wanting to come back for again and again. At £2.50 per cake it is very much justified with the rich taste and quality ingredients. Another notable mention is the hot and cold drink selection with a classic latte being my favourite choice. The well rounded and warm coffee mixed with the creamy milk makes for the perfect pick me up.
If you’re looking for something a little more filling, there is a great selection of healthy hot food available ranging from sandwiches to salads with a twist. The smell alone from the street when walking past of the food cooking will entice you no doubt.
For all the trips you’ll end up making, you’ll be able to collect loyalty stamps towards a sweet treat of your choice.
