The Honey Hive's signature Kinsey Cake | Provided

In the former HōM space at 563 King St., The Honey Hive opened its doors for late night desserts and cocktails last month. The late night “desserterie” celebrates famous women throughout history, with cocktails named after figures like Eartha Kitt, and prints of a diversity of women decorating the walls by local artist Lucy Boland.

“Our team of incredible women is thrilled to have our dream dessert bar now open in the heart of beautiful downtown King Street,” said owner Angela Marino in an email. “We hope locals and visitors alike make The Honey Hive their home for celebrations of any size with their favorite people.”

Pastry chef Payton Williams developed the sweet dessert menu, featuring desserts like foie gras cannoli, peanut butter creme brulee, key lime panna cotta and their signature Kinsey Cake, a honey soaked chocolate cake.

It isn’t all sweet, though — The Honey Hive also has savory dishes, featuring menu items like squash blossom tempura, tomato pie and sunchoke cannelloni.

The sweet party isn’t all late-night, either. Sunday brunch is 12-4:00 p.m., with special menu items like roasted bone marrow & biscuits, brioche donuts, and bacon popovers.

The Honey Hive is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays, but open Wednesdays to Thursdays from 5:30-11 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays from 5:30 p.m. to 2 a.m., and Sun. 12-9 p.m., with brunch hours from 12-4 p.m.
