Hunnybee Bruncheonette for Delicious Morning Lattes & Ricotta Pancakes

Brunch is delicious and amazing and when it is combined with sun drenched space, makes for the perfect Sunday morning. Hunnybee Bruncheonette is a magical offshoot of the beloved Gastown cafe, The Birds & The Beets, which happens to be one of my favourite places to hangout. Honestly, I could lose hours of my life just sipping a latte and basking in the warmth of the sunshine at either of these locations. 

Hunnybee is at the corner of Gore and Union Street in Chinatown. Wrapping the exterior of the cafe is outdoor seating and tables under a green and white striped awning. Floor to ceiling windows make you feel like you are basically sitting outdoors. Probably adding to that feeling are all the green plants inside and the dried foliage that hangs from the ceilings. 

On offer are caffeine classics like lattes and cortados, but I usually like to start my mornings with a glass of fresh orange juice. Also, on a hot summer's day, highly suggest giving the Hibiscus Lemonade a try. 

For food, there are a number of options. I also want to note that the pricing is relatively affordable considering that the food is made fresh in-house using great ingredients. My personal favourite are the Ricotta Pancakes because they are soft, moist delicious and amazing. The pancakes are topped with maple syrup and a house made crumble and jam. I think in the summers they will put fresh fruit on the pancakes too, but I cannot remember. For savoury, go with the Breakfast Sandwich or Shakshuka. Both are excellent! The Breakfast Sandwich has thick perfectly buttered and grilled sourdough bread that holds fried egg, tomato, herb aioli and either ham or avocado. If I want something lighter, I will opt for the Rose & Coconut Bircher Muesli or the Yogurt and Granola. 

During the evenings, Hunnybee Bruncheonette plays host to Thank You Pizza! An adorable apron wearing green coloured mushroom man is their logo. Thank You Pizza just wrapped up their first month in business and I cannot wait to see what more is to come. I have not tried their pizza yet, but I definitely see myself popping by on a summer's evening. Especially since I get cold quick and their seating is primarily outdoors, so I need the summer warmth! It is tough to miss Thank You Pizza because they literally have a big giant red trailer out front from which they throw classic pizzas and cook in stone pizza oven. I repeat, the giant red trailer LITERALLY has been transformed into a PIZZA MAKING OPERATION ON WHEELS! Something I have noticed with all the new hip pizza joints is the pricing and frankly I find it expensive, so I have high expectations. 

Hope you find yourself at Hunnybee Bruncheonette soon!
