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.

The wonderful thing about the Beehive is the unique atmosphere. Mis-matched chairs, fresh baked goods for sale and animal figurines to put on your table after placing your order--the Beehive is different. While it is usually packed, can be a little pricey and there's not that much seating, it's definitely worth a breakfast stop. The selection of teas and pastries... More

We stopped here for a sandwich before getting on the bike path across the street. The menu is eclectic, the place is small, and it is a bit pricy ($9 - $12 sandwiches). The service was a little slow, but the food was very good.

The Beehive never disappoints. Their commitment to fresh ingredients and imaginative approaches to their offerings, makes every visit a new experience. Sandwiches are awesome! They give new meaning to grilled cheese. Owned and run by local people, the Beehive is a special place.

CHECK OUT THE MENU!!!!! It's interesting, fresh, inventive and I can only describe the Beehive as a swarm of local ingredients from local produce and house made desserts! If the food doesn't sting your taste buds then you need to fly away and never come back. There's something for everyone on the breakfast menu, now this place is known for... More

We had a wonderful casual Saturday night dinner at the Beehive in Bristol, RI. Excellent bottle of InSitu Carmenere wine (very reasonably priced). My entree was a giant Acorn Squash stuffed with wild rice and gorgonzola cheese and topped with maple soaked raisins. Fabulous…and very reasonably priced. My husband had a scrumptious pizza. Almost don't want to tell you about... More

I am a frequent visitor and this review is long over due but I am here mostly for lunch, sometimes for breakfast, and often for dinner. I can't say enough good things about it. Staff is always friendly and inviting and you can always count on locally sourced, healthy, sustainable ingredients in a good down home meal!! Too many favorites... More

The kitchen here recently expanded, and dinner was sit down, full service. Our server was great - friendly and attentive. The food was very tasty. I had the cheese plate and a salad, quite tasty. My husband had the mac and cheese which was amazing. All complimented with a great wine and beer selection - definitely a great place to... More
