This is probably my favorite place to get breakfast in my 25 years on this earth. A lot of the ingredients are locally sourced from local farms and the bread is freshly baked each day. I've tried several things on the menu but have been stuck on the cornbread has which has cheese and roasted red peppers mixed it. I... More

I love the beehive, as a local I confess I am a little annoyed when I have to battle my way through the many tourists that come here during tourist season but that is no doubt because the food is good and the price tag is very fair. This is a tiny place and so expect a wait, though I... More

First off, if you go, do expect a wait. This is not the fault of the restaurant, but they are simply very busy and since it is self seat you have to grab a table when you have the chance. The seating upstairs is a little cramped, but well worth bumping elbows for the food!!!!! Absolutely, without a doubt, some... More

This establishment was recommended when we asked about a place to buy good healthy sandwiches for a picnic. It proved to be quite a disappointment. It is clearly very popular with the locals who must be accustomed to the significant wait for food which in fast food America must be some challenge! Self service and queue meant we were given...

Although our food was good, it took us a half hour to receive it. Even though I would love to return to the Beehive and try other dishes on the menu, I'm not sure I would have the patience to wait for my meal to arrive.

Nice, clean, friendly place. Prices reasonable for the area. Can be crowded and busy and you need to wait a while for a seat, Main seating is upstairs for small groups. Went there for lunch. Disappointed in food and service. Ordered a pie and the potato was almost raw. Told a woman serving there and was pretty much given the... More

My friend and I came to Bristol as a summer evening road trip from Massachusetts. We wanted to see water views! When we got to Bristol we saw a big crowd on the waterfront. Turned out it was a band concert as part of the town's July 4 celebration. I looked on Trip Advisor for a restaurant near Thames St... More

In town for a wedding and knew that our relatives in the area frequent here, so stopped by to give it a try. Best egg, cheese, and ham breakfast sandwich ever!!! The fresh fruit side was perfect...fruit was fresh and sweet! My husband enjoyed his omelette but was unimpressed with the hash browns. That aside, great food, friendly staff...will return.
