With winter approaching, we’re all looking for some comfort food and cute little cafe’s. I have been eyeing Honeybun for a while now. Situated in a prime spot in Greenmarket Square, with big Truth Coffee umbrellas in front of the entrance, it’s definitely impossible to resist having a looking inside.
Entering the cafe, we were greeted with warm smiles on a cold Autumn day. Delicious looking croissants staring at me, begging me to take a bite! The place has a hipster vibe, something fun that caught my eye was an illustration of the different types of coffees. Kept me busy for like half an hour, figuring out the difference between a cappuccino and a flat white!
Those Truth Coffee umbrellas outside tempted me too much for some good coffee. I ordered an Americano. There is an option to have a coffee with Almond milk for R10 extra, but I feel that is a little bit expensive. The coffee arrived warm and warmed me up from the inside, just what I needed.
Unfortunately, as someone who freezes her butt off 95% of the time, I needed something warmer. I decided on the Spicy Butternut Soup, but sadly they had just given the last bit to another customer. So next choice was the Cape Malay Chicken Curry and boy, am I glad that they were out of Butternut Soup! They portion was huge for only R80! The curry was accompanied by basmati rice, a large pappadam, sambals and mint raita. I couldn’t even finish the meal! The curry was so flavoursome, the pappadam really tasty and everything combined was just amazing.
I would definitely be back soon to try some other items on the menu. The service was excellent and that croissant is still waiting for me to consume it!
