They have one of the most diverse, creative menus in town. Along with this come their standard buffalo burgers which are AMAZING. I only wish they didn't serve it with Martin's potato chips. Although Martin's is local, they are not that great. Utz is much...better. Aside from that, this is a must-eat place for burgers.More
The Busy Bee is inside Central Market. The best entrance to use is N. Beaver Street.
While their breakfast menu is small, their selections are unique. I enjoyed my bacon, eggs, and cheese on a french bread. It was very enjoyable.
I always loved the stand in the market when I lived in town, and when I heard that they catered, I decided to give them a shot for my wedding reception. It was fabulous! Awesome to work with and really flexible in terms of working...with what we wanted. I'm vegetarian and we had some other special dietary needs on the guest list, and the Busy Bee did a great job accommodating everyone. The veggie option (a quiche) was delicious and infinity times better than the standard over-sauteed "veggie tower" I've seen at so many other weddings. Staff was awesome and went above and beyond in setting up and tearing down super fast. We also had the Fizzy Bee come out and the homemade sodas were a huge hit. Everybody loved the special Whiskey Gingers. Can't recommend them enough!More
Though I have never been to The Busy Bee inside Central Market, I have patronized their sister soda shop, The FIZZY Bee: it is worth the trip! My two kids and I went to Central Market to do some shopping yesterday, and while we were...there, it was ridiculously hot in the unairconditioned building. To keep the kids happy, I allowed them to each get a cold drink at The Fizzy Bee. My son got a cookies and cream milkshake, and my daughter got a strawberry banana smoothie. They hit the spot on a sweltering hot summer day! The milkshake was thick, creamy, and flavorful, and my daughter's smoothie was refreshing without being overly sweet. I would definitely get either one of them again. I ordered a vanilla egg cream because it looked interesting and I had never had one before. It was ok. I'm not sure exactly what it's supposed to taste like, but it tasted like a cold, fizzy, watery vanilla soda without cola. I wouldn't get it again, but it wasn't terrible.
If I had two complaints, they would be these: 1. Because each drink is handcrafted, it takes a long time to make one, and the line very quickly gets long, so be prepared to wait, especially if you go around lunchtime, and 2. The plastic to-go cups definitely needed lids. They were out of lids, which normally wouldn't have been a huge deal, but it is an inconvenience when you want to have two young children take their drinks home in the car. We had to sit there for an extra 20 minutes while the kids slurped away at their drinks instead of being able to take them with us, which was the original idea. Not a huge deal, but an inconvenience.
The menu had a lot of really creative drinks, and overall, I would highly suggest going back. Just be prepared to wait if there is a long line!More
The Busy Bee is a unique stand at Central Market with a unique chef. Chef Drew will make sure you never leave disappointed. He has spectacular dishes inspired by several different regions and cultures. I enjoy the new change up for the menu: focusing on...a few specials for longer and just a couple standard options. His elk and bison burgers are spectacular, made fresh and cooked to order. They have great vegetarian and vegan options as well. Any time you can get duck or rabbit from him, order that dish!More
a+ for effort. Menu is inventive and always changing. The recipes are hit or miss, but luckily more hits than misses. Cooking lacks consistency. I have a few faves I order over and over, and each iteration is a little different. very friendly staff. Can...be a bit slow.More
