Nice Lunch

Hot chicken sandwiches, with chutney, bacon, and cheddar in grilled buns with side greens hit the mark, for an above-average lunch. The building space is cramped like a beehive, but the food is very good. Excellent-looking bakery items, as well.

We had lunch here the burgers were big and the buns bigger. Gave you a nice salad on the side. I would not have seen this place or have known about it if someone hadn't mentioned it to me, sure glad they did, very nice for lunch!

Being a native Bristolian who know lives in NY, The Beehive is a must visit every time I am home. From their fresh breakfast, amazing and creative specials, strong coffee, and best ever Bakery items (who ever came up with that Flaxjack is a saint!), there really isn't a bad item on the menu. One issue can be how busy... More

A great staff that shows they really care about the food they serve and their customers. Starting with the best capaccino around and continuing thru the burittos, pancakes, crepe of the day fench toast good quality, nice atmosphere. The Beehive is a gem. Can accomodate a group of up to 8 during busy times. Eclectic mix of specials, great soups,... More

Interesting and delectible food. European/deli-bakery-cafe. Quality ingredients. Bohemian-hippie. Love it.

Heard great reviews and Beehive did not disappoint. The menu is different with excellent specials. Food is delicious. The grilled cheese with caramelized onions,Yum. The soup of the day was root vegetable, unlike any soup I ever had. More like mashed veggies which was so tasty but more like a side dish. Portions were very generous.

Being steps away from Bristol's beautiful waterfront Beehive Cafe is a great hidden gem. Great fresh food. and delicious variety of coffee and tea. I love it there. Try them out!

My wife took me here yesterday, having been once before. We shared the tomato and cheddar soup, with home made biscuit, and each had a Vegan Black Bean burger: one with a side salad, the other with Chickpeas. Both amazing: it was too much food ( not a complaint). So good, we're going back soon. It is a little quirky:... More

Excellent food. Eclectic atmosphere. A bit awkward, however, in that you place your order on the first floor and then walk upstairs and seat yourself while you await the delivery of your food. You must bring your coffee up the stairs after you "dress" it. Otherwise, cozy atmosphere.
