Honeycomb first lit the hearth in February of 2018, but the fire that guided us here has been burning for over a decade. Founder Benjamin Vickers partnered with Marcos Fernandez of Nineteen61 to build a local source for Lakelanders to find hand-crafted breads, pastry, and dessert. More than just a bakery, Honeycomb was built to be a gathering place for artisans and people who love and care about food to participate in the ten thousand-year tradition of baking. At Honeycomb, every early morning spent firing the ovens and shaping sourdough is a new chapter of that tradition. A new opportunity to practice, improve, and eke out incremental progress personally and professionally.
In his book, Trevor Wilson wrote: “Bread is an extension of a baker's very being. All of the baker's beauty, and all of the baker's struggles are baked into every loaf. A baker doesn't just create bread from flour, water, and salt—he creates it from the soul within.”
For the artisans who gather around our hearth, that soul of beauty and generosity is what guides our hands, shaping every sweet and savory that comes from our bakeshop.
