“Tired premises, disappointing food”
Review of Honey Cafe

We arrived in the afternoon. There was little choice of food and staff were cleaning up and were too involved in washing the floor to remember our coffee.
The food was boring and stodgy. More people were coming in while we were eating.

We stopped at The Hive Cafe for coffee and cake on our way up North and were fascinated by the bees that we could see in a hive up against one of the windows. Its not often the you get to watch the internal workings of a beehive! The coffee was good and the cake delicious and afterwards, we browsed through the shop, taking home some fabulous Due North Sweet Chilli sauce and a bottle of honey.

On a very busy road the Honey Cafe is a unique take on a road cafe. There is a fully working bee colony visible to patrons. Bees have become a threatened resource so it is good to see they are cared for. There is a full range of bee products, honeys etc including Manuka.
The cafe is good with a range of food to suit all travellers. Good point: The muffins actually have fruit in them. Not so good: All coffee serving cafes should include double shots, this is one where you have to ask.

Stopped on our way north out of Auckland heading for the Bay of Islands. Lovely staff and good selection of cakes. The kids enjoyed the honey milkshakes. Good coffee too! We took a quick look round the shop and when we saw the bees at work and all the things to see we wish we had more time to stay longer. Do at least stop in and if you can stay and learn about the bees and the honey
