I'm new to town and have now become a regular. Their breakfast never dissapoints and always over the top and friendly. Two of their workers, Abra and Joe are outstanding. As noted, their breakfast is made with the freshest ingredients, they make their own yogurt, orange juice, etc. Some may find it a lil pricey, but it's more then worth... More

I've been to The Beehive many times and have never been disappointed. The breakfast are very good, the lunch sandwiches are great, the coffee is delicious. If you are in Bristol looking for a fresh, delicious meal at an affordable price, look no further. Or farther, for that matter. The Beehive is located right off the beautiful park, near the... More

The beehive restaurant in Bristol is a small gem in the city. It is a small and unpretentious restaurant but when it comes to the food it is just amazing. The selections change regularly based on what is available from local farms. The food is excellent and varied. There is always something new and exciting to try. The servers are... More

Not the best breakfast you'll ever had, but pretty decent. Portions are big and hearty. My rosemary biscuit with poached egg and four cheese sauce with arugula was ok (four cheese was a bit bland, the arugula seemed tired and a bit wilted) the French toast however was the saving grace. And the granola with yogurt was crisp and savory.

Busy with many clients throughout the day. Mostly a young crowd. Situated just up from the water front. It is a small space inside with a few tables outside just off the sidewalk.

We decided to try The Beehive for lunch (they serve breakfast there, too), and we had mixed luck with our choices. The Butternut Squash sandwich was tasty, if a bit greasy, while the Grilled Cheese could have been good but had surprisingly little cheese in it. Also, iced coffee was very good here, but espresso drinks were just so-so. We... More

The menu seems limited, but the food is always good and the place is just charming! The service is friendly. You can stop in for just coffee if you want.

Amazingly fresh food with unusual flavors. Cute seating area outside. I wish I lived closer so I could go regularly. I had flax bread toast and yogurt with fruit which was amazing!!!!
