Home made specialities - great coffee. Casual and friendly - right on Linden and short walk to the beach.

We had breakfast here - couldn't have been happier with the food. The owner of this sweet spot is a gem. He's passionate about the food, and treating each customer with care. We highly recommend the Worker Bee Cafe and encourage all who visit the area to visit!

On a beautiful Sunday morning in Carpenteria we had breakfast at the Worker Bee. French toast with spicy bacon was a great way to start our day.Our waitress Marie was awesome too!

Our son-in-law suggested we have lunch there before leaving for home. We found the food to be very good. The menu offered many choices with a variety. The service was prompt and VERY pleasant. TRY EATING THERE!

We recently ate at this place and enjoyed it very much. First of all, it is a cafe that is not fancy by any means. It reminded us a lot of a small town cafe one would find in the midwest. That is meant as a compliment, as small town midwestern cafes have great food. To add to the quaintness... More

The owner's father was our server. Very excellent friendly service and food was delicious. We had the chorizo & egg tacos, traditional eggs, potatoes and mouth-watering jalapeño thick crispy bacon!

Camping at Carpenteria State Beach we normally make our own coffee and breakfast but today we had no electricity and no pot for the propane so it was off to find coffee.
