The popular capital cafe is set to re-open after shutting its doors last month.

Honeycomb & Co will open again after closing in March due to the coronavirus lockdown measures, and is set to offer a takeaway and order collection service.

Honeycomb & Co To Go will be available from Friday 1 May, with orders being taken daily.

Orders can be placed by email or phone by 1pm each day, at least 48 hours ahead of collection time.

What’s on the menu?

Owner Ian D’Annunzio-Green commented: “We’re really delighted to be opening our doors once again in Bruntsfield – albeit with a different sort of offering while restrictions remain in place.

“It will be some time before we can return to our buzzy atmosphere and serve our full menu to customers, so we’ve worked hard to put a new plan in place.

“We hope that it can allow us to continue trading for the long term, and to get through what’s a very difficult period for all in the hospitality industry.

“Honeycomb & Co To Go brings together some old favourites and some new dishes for our customers to enjoy at home. Our amazing team will continue to make everything from scratch, meaning we can serve a range of home baking, salads and savoury snacks daily, great coffees and soft drinks.

“Brunch to go will follow in the coming weeks, along with our own homemade gelato in time for what we hope will be a sunny Scottish summer!”

Customers picking up food are asked to keep in mind social distancing rules, and only two or three people will be permitted in the store at any one time (depending on staff).

The new menu will feature some Honeycomb & Co homemade favourites from the cake counter with new additions such as a Lime and Coconut traybake, Tunnocks Teacake traybake and filled doughnuts, plus whole loaf cakes for those looking for something tasty to keep the family going.

Alongside the sweet treats there will be some savoury baking options too – Sweetcorn and Isle of Mull Cheddar muffins, asparagus pea and feta tarts (family-sized or individual portions) and some posh sausage rolls – expect chorizo or black pudding to feature.

There will be a choice of three flavour-packed salads, each of which can be topped with grilled chicken breast, lamb kofta, smoked mackerel or smoked salmon.

Salad options include: Jersey Royal potatoes, asparagus, broad bean, pea and mint with bagna cauda dressing, heritage tomato, sumac onion, toasted almond, house pesto and wasabi mascarpone, or roast aubergine, broccoli, crispy kale and pomegrant with dukkah and curried yoghurt.

Other options include homemade soup with sourdough bread, sandwiches and our own homemade gelato – ideal for sunny days.
