Tucked behind sister bistro Bucci, Hive serves up steaming cups of morning coffee and freshly pressed green juices and smoothies. Come midday, the Italian influence becomes apparent, with a selection of piadina stealing the lunchtime limelight. The Italian flat breads come brimming with simple pairings like ham, cheese and relish to more indulgent slow-roasted pork with apple slaw, while falafel with hommus beetroot salad and yoghurt dressing will appeal to the vegetarian-minded diner. Low GI salads like green lentils with potato, capsicum and celery keep health enthusiasts happy, while gluten-free sweet treats like chocolate brownies and slices tempt afternoon appetites. Hive also offers a daily soup special for winter – keep an eye out for the cauliflower soup with pork belly.
