Lovely spot for drink
Oct. 2020 • Couples
My husband boat here from our nearby summer home for our morning tea and scone - we highly recommend! We’ve had the grilled cheese and avocado on toast - would recommend both. The shop is lovely as well.

Hive -- No idea about sanitary measures!
Aug. 2019
Although nice location to have a coffee ( cups way too small which forces you to buy 2 minituare coffees to equal 1 regular size ) and a scone, and smoothies. No healthy practices used here in regards to food handling! They handle money and then go and grab the raw ingredients with the same dirty hands and put into your cup for smoothies!! WHEN BROUGHT TO THIER ATTENTION, THEY DIDNT CARE!! Have they noy been to Tim Hortons, Subway, Pita Pit, etc where they actually wash thier hands, and use gloves when handling food that we the consumers are about to eat!! Disgusting, irresponsible and no regard for cleanliness!!!! I will ask thelocal inspectors to visit this establishment in 2020 as I work for the regional government.

Amazing Shopping Experience

I am a cottager and love to show my guests The Hive everytime. The decor and atmosphere is amazing. Love the products and the designs of clothing. Great place to visit. there is terrace over looking Georgian Bay, where there are sometimes shows and music playing. There is also a coffee place right on the spot.

If you like "salted birch" scented toothpicks, overpriced vista print quality sweaters, and snobby staff you'll love it
Aug. 2019
The Hive - If you like "salted birch" scented toothpicks, overpriced vista print quality sweaters, and snobby staff you'll love it here. If you visit (don't) just be sure to do it on foot as you'll likely be asked to move your car...there are actually plenty of parking spaces, but it seems as though none of them are properly marked. As a result, customers are berated by this establishment's awful employees, who stare you down and make you feel entirely unwelcome.

I find it hard to believe that anybody would find this store affordable (as mentioned in a previous review) - $8 toothpicks and $50 infant knock-off Crocs convey "elitist" as opposed to "affordable".

This is the kind of store that WOULD give you instant buyer's remorse, could you afford to actually buy anything.

It's a shame that my first visit to The Hive will also be my last. I'd suggest skipping this on your next visit to Honey Harbour - You won't regret it.

Lovely place by the lake
Aug. 2019
This is a quaint and lovely spot to have a cup of coffee and something to munch on as you watch the boats sail by in the lake. We sat on the outdoor patio by the lake and enjoyed some freshly made scones while we waited for our Daytripper to the Georgian Bay National Park.

Yummy breakfast and Las Chicas coffee
Jul. 2018 • Couples
Full disclosure - I love Las Chicas coffee which is roasted in our hometown. We boated over to the Hive for a mug of hot, delicious coffee and a yummy breakfast wrap two mornings in a row. Both coffee and food were fantastic.

Staff were pleasant and helpful. The setting is magnificent and it is fun to sit and watch lake life. Once yoga class was done we chatted with some of the locals and they all seemed happy with the Hive.

A must stop whether boating, walking or driving.

So much better than a Timmy's
Aug. 2017 • Friends
Quick coffee en route turned into a relaxing and charming hour at the Hive. Wonderful deck. Great cranberry crumpets and lots of pretty things to buy (the kind you don't need but just want to have! ) Friendly staff at shop. Will stop by again and bring my debit card to shop!
