Honey B Hives

Honey B Hives is a cozy diner known for its cheap breakfasts and filling dinners. The restaurant has taken up the corner unit of its quiet plaza for nearly ten years.

The logo features a stylized "B" with googly eyes and insect wings, alluding to the restaurant’s beehive theme.

True to its name, Honey B Hives is buzzing with activity. During our visit, servers flitted from table to table, while customers loaded up on carbs and couples conversed loudly over coffee.

Our waitress explained that, while breakfast tends to be the main draw, both service periods are quite busy.

Two Belgian-style waffles come dusted with icing sugar and topped with a huge piece of fried chicken.

Sides of maple syrup and whipped butter give the meal a little extra sweetness, but honestly, the seasoned chicken is flavourful enough to enjoy on its own.

Though not as fancy as pastas I've eaten in the past, it nevertheless took me by surprise with its spicy-sweet taste.
