Food: Honey & Co

Honey & Co has been on my to-visit list for the last three years, so it's only right that I ended up visiting twice in one week - on a rainy Tuesday evening for dinner and for a Saturday brunch. The food and experience was well worth the wait - the restaurant is tiny and the menu is small but still incredibly hard to decide what to order from it.

Green Shakshuka for brunch - eggs with spinach and herbs, goat's yogurt and sesame bread
Founded by a husband and wife team, Honey & Co serves up the sort of food you can imagine eating on holiday or at someone's home. Simple ingredients and perfect flavours meant that I left full and happy on both occasions after sampling the mixed mezze for the table and a main course each time. The desserts on the counter look beautiful if you have space for one and the ginger and pear G&T is a must-try, too. Brunch is the better value option, £16.50 getting a selection of dips, breads and cereal to start and then an egg-based main. Dinner is £28.50 for a bigger mezze selection and a main course - it's a lot of food!

The best hummus 
The downside of such a tiny restaurant is that bookings are a must and once you've got one, the table is only yours for 90 minutes. One to visit with punctual, fast-eating friends. I'm not usually a fan of table-turning but its understandable in a small space although shared starters, a main and a dessert may be an ambitious amount of food to get through in an hour and a half as service is not super-speedy until the end of the time window. That said, I'd definitely go back - as a vegetarian the menu presented a rare moment of indecision at both dinner and brunch and staff are lovely and happy to explain the menu and offer suggestions of their favourites.

Home made ashura cereal - would happily order this as a dish on its own
Make sure to head to Honey & Spice across the road after where you can stock up on hummus, labneh, pastries and the excellent home-made granola.
