Black Honey was recommended by the waiter where we dined as I was looking for a delicious London Fog. He definitely sent us in the right direction as the beverage was yummy and the Kalhua Vegan Cheesecake was over the top deeelicious! Loved Black Honey, quaint and young feeling! I'd go again for sure!

I always go to Black Honey when I am in the city. The gluten free ginger cookies are amazing and if you have to eat g/f, do yourself a favour & go over to their bakery & pick up a loaf of their g/f bread? Yum!

Great food and thoughtful staff. Their avacado, bacon and tomato on molasses bread is perhaps my favourite. They poach eggs perfectly also. Anything chocolate they have will satisfy even the most discerning chocoholics.

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
