Who Knew!

I've been to Bristol any number of times and not seen the Beehive, but at long last, a local friend suggested it for lunch. It's not much to look at, inside or out, but don't be put off: The food is excellent. Had I known how big the sandwiches are, two of us would have split one. The only minor... read more

Someone needs to tell the owners to have their staff to clean up the tables after diners leave their tables. We like the food at this place, but the place is not clean. One has to clean their own tables most of the time we visit this restaurant, which is pretty disgusting. If you visit here, just keep this in... More

I love the cozy warmth of this restaurant. The minute you walk in the door, the warmth just envelops you. The delicious smells of coffee, baked goods and food. We found this place by accident for lunch. The best black bean burger I have ever had. The burger is served on a homemade roll with pico de gallo, cheese and... More

Enjoyed a very hearty chicken soup with a daily special sandwich. Opted for iced green tea, while my spouse chose coffee. Both were good. The cinnamon sticky buns will bring you back again and again. After lunch, we walked around several blocks to enjoy the beautiful settings and homes in the town. Will go back for sure.

If you like your food made with lots of fresh, local ingredients -- and you like it delicious, too, visit the Beehive. Open for all three meals a day, it has some terrific dishes, such as its lemon-ricotta pancakes, smoked salmon BLT (with amazing, hearty flaxseed bread), butternut squash sandwich, and mushrooms on toast.

The All American breakfast is plentiful and full of flavor. I especially liked substituting the banana bread for the regular French toast.

We started going a few years ago and haven't stopped since. It's a busy breakfast place on weekends but worth the wait - grab a table when you see it! The black bean fritters are a must and to be honest nothing has ever disappointed, always well seasoned and creative. I love the you can get lunch at breakfast time... More

We could not find a breakfast café open in Warren so drove on to Bristol. How fortunate for us we did that as we had a great breakfast at Beehive in Bristol. Everything, according to the young man at the counter, is made from scratch. The cakes, pastries, biscuits (cookies) looked wonderful and the bread is home made. We both... More

Great place for breakfast! Nice trendy spot and very friendly with a cool vibe. I ordered the breakfast platter and my wife had the butternut squash sandwich. Both were great. Gotta try!

This is a little establishment with big flavor. We only had cinnamon buns early in the morning but the place was hoping with all sorts of goodies. We took our coffee and goodies upstairs (where there are more tables) and relaxed on the rooftop balcony eating area overlooking the nearby bay. This was a relaxing end to our vacation and... More
