“Tucked away....but the food it totally worth it.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

After visiting Bristol for years, it took a friend back home asking about Beehive for us to discover this little gem. Go here for the food! It is small but has tons of character and the food....well it's fresh,local, well-prepared, cooked to order, and creative. For breakfast, I had sunnyside-up eggs on grilled butternut squash with creamed spinach and cornbread. Delicious!! Another diner enjoyed a delicious side dish of "hash brown" chickpeas. It is THE place for breakfast in Bristol if you are looking for something other than bagels (Bristol Bagel is wonderful!) and enjoy hand-crafted food. You must order downstairs when you enter the cozy restaurant and then they will bring your meal to you either upstairs, outside, or on the entry level. I suggest upstairs or upstairs-outside if the weather permits. The coffee cups are "Friends" large and the lattes and cappucinos are delicious. Fresh pastries, biscotti and desserts looked awesome. Highly recommend. I hope to return for dinner one day.....

“Quaint College Hang”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

The Beehive is a small eatery in the college town of Bristol. Walk in and place your order and it is brought to you upstairs. Usually very crowded but quaint. Some space to sit outside on deck. Very good sandwiches and fried chick peas, a favorite. Good smoothies too. Nice cookies. Healthy eating ! Wish it were larger.

“Fabulous place for coffee and breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

Food was excellent and very creatively prepared. Wish we had one of these where I live. Had a snack and coffee the first day and brought the entire family for a birthday breakfast the next day.

“Beyond expectation for a small cafe.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

Small Cafe where you order and seat yourself and your order is then brought to you when ready. The quality and food preparation was way beyond expectation.
