Bright, bold and bubbly are the words that spring to mind upon stepping into Mermaid Beach’s newest neighbourhood café, Honey Bee and Saint.
Keep your eyes peeled for the cheerful blue and white stripes which stand out as you cruise south on the Gold Coast Highway. The café is a first for owners Mel and Larissa.
Since opening last Friday the spacious, eye-catching cafe, on the corner of Seabeach Ave, has been serving up fresh baked treats, healthy sandwiches and wraps, all made in house.
Think homemade banana bread, spinach and cheese savoury slice, chocolate muffins with cream cheese icing and a variety of cookies (you know it’s all good because Larissa has a bakers license).
Larissa (the Saint part of the name due to her kind –hearted nature) is passionate about baking everything herself.
Like a bee to honey, you’ll be buzzing once you’ve tasted it all.
The cafes official opening weekend is March 11th and 12th when the café will also offer hot breakfast dishes and fresh juice.
On Tuesday nights Honey Bee and Saint will offer tacos from 4.30pm and on Thursday’s it’s fish and chip night.
With a homely, happy vibe that makes everyone feel welcome, Honey Bee and Saint, at the Montego Beach Hotel, is the spot to stop in for your morning coffee on the way to work.
Conveniently, if you’re holidaying in the area, Honey Bee and Saint is in the direct path of the beach so you can grab your snacks on your way to spending a day in the Gold Coast sun.
HOURS: 6am to 4pm weekdays and 6am to 3pm weekends.
LOCATION: Out the front of the Motego Motel at 2395 Gold Coast Hwy, Mermaid Beach (on the corner of Seabeach Ave).
