The Beehive is as it sounds - a beehive of a place. Off a side street in downtown Bristol, the food is reliably good! The interior however needs some sprucing up - it's a bit worn. It welcomes you to sit a relax, no need to hurry, the locals and visitors alike eat here.

Great cafe for breakfast or lunch. We had 2 delicious sandwiches. Plenty of food for the price. Interesting menu. Great smoothies, iced teas, etc.

My husband and I live in Bristol and whenever our 30 something children come to visit they like to make a stop at beehive. They love the black bean burger but my favorite is the sweet potato hash. I've enjoyed their desserts as well, I even had my sons birthday cake made at their other facility.

Great place to meet friends and enjoy the wonderful cuisine. A little small, but the menu is surprisingly diverse and fun.

Very overpriced for the amount of food you get. Give very small amounts. It's not fair to customers to pay for so little you receive. They should be embarrassed. Not customer friendly either..

Great location. Sat outside upstairs and watched the sun go down while dining on excellent chicken with pesto meal. Good service. Gluten free options, including cookies to take away.

I go to the Beehive frequently for breakfast; food is excellent, staff is superior (friendly, knowledgable). You should expect a short wait but it's worth it. Also serves dinner 3 nights a week (Th-S) which has table service and offers wine/beer. Go, you'll be pleased!

Thank Keith M
