About

Honeycomb is a local artisan bread bakery. Our artisans specialize in naturally-leavened goods such as sourdough, focaccia, baguettes, rye, and hand-crafted pastry; all baked on a stone hearth. By sharing our love of baking with Lakelanders, we hope to achieve a simple mission:  make our beautiful city a better, yummier place.

OUR FUTURE

We have been open for less than a year, and yet we are already opening our brick-and-mortar storefront! This summer, we are transforming the historic Studebaker Building at 213 East Bay Street in downtown Lakeland into a beautiful new bakery-bistro; and we are sharing the space with Twenty Seven, who will be bringing an indie bookstore and design studio to the area! The future Honeycomb will feature a stage for live music and events, community-led garden and culinary library, comfortable patio seating, a second-floor mezzanine with cozy reading nooks, and full continental and bistro lunch menu! Did we mention we'll be open Tuesday through Saturday?? Our future is so bright and we hope you will join us on this journey!

FUNDING

We need an investment of $10,000 to help refurbish the space and purchase equipment. The funding is all-or-nothing, so every dollar truly counts so that we can make this dream a reality! We have some exciting rewards for you based on your pledge amount; PLUS, if we exceed our funding goal, we have some extra goodies planned for our backers including additions to the menu (croissants anyone?). Thank you so much in advance for becoming a part of the Honeycomb family!

Risks and challenges

We have set an ambitious goal of completing the renovation project by the end of summer 2019. Even with the best laid plans, sometimes the unexpected happens. Please bear with us in the event of any delays! Even if the shop's grand opening is a little late, we will still be at the Farmer's Market every Saturday morning, rain or shine. We love our beautiful city and look forward to pushing out frequent updates so you can see the progress!
