Honey & Co Bloomsbury

Honey & Co on Lamb’s Conduit Street is warm and welcoming, the nutty hummus is super smooth, the fluffy bread is dunkable, and desserts like must-order kadaif cheesecake syrupy-sweet. The Middle Eastern restaurant is all cool neutral colours, pretty ceramics, and thick, off-white paper on the tables. The best seats in the house are at the front of the restaurant where it’s most buzzy or, if the weather’s playing ball, on one of the few patio tables with a direct eyeline to Noble Rot (where a post-dinner nightcap is encouraged). It’s open for breakfast and lunch but dinner is when the space shines—with the lights dimmed, candles flickering, and an orange blossom old fashioned to kick off proceedings.
