Beaucoup's Spring Fling: Honey from Hive for Humanity
Spring has sprung at my all time favourite cafe, Beaucoup Bakery. Not only did they launch a new seasonal menu, they've embraced every opportunity to collaborate with local artists and businesses. You'll notice their seasonal flower arrangements from Flower Factory and brand new commissioned pottery, cups, and plates from Vancouver ceramicist, HiDe Ebina, which are now available on their retail shelves. To top it all off, the key ingredient of their seasonal menu is locally made as well. Here's a visual recap of their new seasonal pastries and make sure to check out the bakery's new mural when you visit. Thanks a million to Rick, Sophia & Jackie for the preview!

locally made from Hives for Humanity is the star of this season.
The non-profit organization have hives in Strathcona, Commercial Drive, Main Street, Mount Pleasant, Kitsilano, Hastings Sunrise, and Renfrew; each neighbourhood honey has its own unique characteristic. Beaucoup Bakery features the Renfrew honey into their sweet spring pastries. The bakery will also be selling the small-batch honey off their shelves.
