The Honeybee Bakery

by Hollie.xo (follow)
Any occasion is an excuse for a cake!

I pride myself on being a bit of a cake and coffee connoisseur, mostly due to the fact that I seem to run on these two staples. No matter what activity I do with my one-year-old, there must be caffeine and sugar on hand, just in case I have to deal with a tantrum or exploding nappy.

That's why I find it hard to believe that I've only just discovered The Honeybee Bakery in Milngavie.

The Honeybee Bakery

This delightful gem of a cafe, hidden in plain slight on Station Road, harmoniously marries great coffee and delicious food. The cafe also provides a charming play area, which allows for guilt-free refuelling, knowing your child is happily entertained.

I've passed this cafe on many occasions and although it's always looked inviting (the cakes in the window are beautifully handcrafted, pieces of art work and the pink exterior calls to anyone's softer side), it's always looked really busy, which is a good sign, but I wasn't sure my buggy would fit.

Today it was quieter and to my surprise, there was a whole upstairs with plenty more seating and the staff couldn't be more accommodating with helping me tuck my pram somewhere safe.

The counter is laden with a wide array of cakes and bakes, and the scones I had were totally delicious. I was truly spoiled for choice; the selection was far from your usual fare and you could try some really interesting flavours, as well as treating yourself to a classic.

They also offered a wide range of ice creams and sundaes – had it been warmer, I would certainly have tasted a few flavours (which were a bit quirky). I'll be sure to go back in the summer for a scoop!

The best bit about this cafe from a mother's point of view is the play room upstairs. Along with soft sofas to relax on and high chairs aplenty, the play area makes any parent feel immediately at ease and allows kids to enjoy the space in between sipping on a babychino (these were served in a real mini milk bottle - fab touch!) Or you can order a reasonably priced sandwich or bread based savoury snack that I believe you can buy along with the cakes for take-away to enjoy at home.

The atmosphere here was one of happiness, fun and relaxation and I would recommend it to anyone. They also do celebration cakes to order.
