Perfect Breakfast

Order at the counter and they give you a plastic animal to put on your table so they know where to bring your food. Coffee, even decaf, is freshly made and delicious. The eggs were fresh and cooked perfectly, poached for me and over medium for my husband. What I will crave until we return is the... read more

This charming little spot has great coffee, baked goods and excellent lunch and breakfast selections. From the outdoor patio, you can enjoy views of the park and waterfront.

The line is usually long and there isn't much seating, but this place makes the best food. We have only been for lunch, but look forward to trying breakfast one day. If you are looking for great vegan/vegetarian fare, then this is your place. Great options for all. You order your food on the first level, then wait for it... More

I hate to say it but, the coffee is not like it used to be, and the breakfasts are just okay. We used to love it at the Beehive, but now you wait in line and it's just not worth the wait.

Diners line up outside and wait to order at a counter. The long line suggests great food, but it is just mediocre. Not sure what the draw is unless you need convenient take out for walking across the street to the water for a picnic.

We loved this place for breakfast. I had a cinnamon bun that was terrific (not too sweet, and nice and yeasty), and my wife had a morning glory muffin that was great. Really good coffee too. The atmosphere is very casual and comfortable. If we lived in Bristol, I'd go here every day!

This is a charming little establishment in Bristol. Great food with wonderful bread! Small but worth the wait. Eat outside and enjoy the soft lovely ambiance of Bristol or brown bag it out to Colt Park or at a bench or blanket on the grass by the water right down the street.

This is a great location in down town Bristol. Sunsets right out there front door. Fried chic peas, "Flax Jack" highly recommend! They use all kinds of unique, fresh, quality food & ingredients. If your looking to try a new kind of dish, this is your place! But get there early, cuz its small but cozy, and fills up fast.

When we come to Bristol we always visit Beehive. It's a bustling little place with two floors, a patio, a deck and a funky restroom. Everything we've ordered has been excellent and they serve an imaginative selection of beer and wine. One of these days we'll have an entire meal here!

This is a cute little place tucked away off the main street in Bristol - the food is always delicious and includes salads, sandwiches, drinks, and desserts. This is a very popular spot on a nice summer day so plan accordingly. You can also call ahead for a take-out order. Hopefully you can get a table on the roof deck... More
