A space in Dorchester that once housed an ice cream shop is now home to a cafe with a name often seen in Greater Boston within the last few months. Honeycomb Cafe took over for Savin Scoop at 107 Savin Hill Ave., according to Boston Restaurant Talk, and opened on August 6, though the farm-to-table spot has no relation to Honeycomb Creamery in Cambridge, nor to Honeycomb Bakery in Hamilton.
Founded by Lara and Nicole Miele, who live in Savin Hill, Honeycomb Cafe features a menu with locally sourced ingredients, including breakfast and lunch sandwiches, like the Bird is the Word, with turkey, cheddar, vegetables, and house-made pickles. There is gluten-free bread available, as well as a selection of salads, in addition to coffee beverages, tea, and seltzer.
Honeycomb’s partnerships include Iggy’s Bread and Union Coffee Roaster, plus a handful of other farms, producers, and businesses around Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Vermont.
