As a Longmire fan we were happy to eat lunch here. The waitress was friendly and checked on us often, filling our drinks. The Busy Bee is connected to and owned by the historic Occidental Hotel. I had a chicken honey mustard sandwich and coleslaw . My husband had beef noodle soup, and a grilled cheese sandwich. I recommend eating... More

I was driving through Wyoming and stayed the night in Buffalo. As I strolled down the main street, I noticed the Busy Bee Café -- which readers of the Walt Longmire series of books, or watchers of the Netflix series Longmire, would recognize. Delightedly, I decided to skip my free breakfast at the nearby Hampton Inn and instead dine at... More

After dinner and taking a stroll we decided to stop in the Busy Bee for desert. It was great and it was homemade. I had a Cherry Crisp with ice cream. Very Good.

Attached to the Occidental hotel, this was an easy stumble from it's front door for an early breakfast. Welcome was really great with prompt attention and service. Our waitress ('the' waitress!) was great fun, really helpful to us Brits uneducated in US breakfast choices! She helped us through and organised everything we wanted/needed. Sitting at a sun drenched window, overlooking... More

Connected to the Occidental Hotel and Saloon. Loved it for the ambience and the view of the Clear Creek. Food was good, regular breakfast food. Coffee was hot and they refilled our cups often

Sunday morning after a busy Saturday for Buffalo with the annual Brewfest across the street from the Busy Bee. Staff was friendly but food was all lukewarm at best and burritos were actually cold. Like they took the ingrediants from the fridge and rolled them in a tortilla and put gravy on them and forgot to heat them. We had... More

Ths was our breakfast stop for the day. The building is beautiful, and is attached to the equally lovely hotel next door. We ordered a cooked breakfast each. The taste of the food was actually quite good, but the food was served lukewarm. Nothing worse than hot food that isn't hot. I wished Id chosen the cinnamon bun instead which... More

Late lunch on a Tuesday in September, should have walked out when we found 3/4 of the tables un-bussed. Service was SLOW and inattentive. A buffalo burger and hamburger too an INORDINATELY LONG time to make ti to the table, and of course one was drastically undercooked, and the other over cooked. All for $37 including a hot tea and...

From the service, to the kitchen, to the prices I was extremely unhappy and disappointed. A beautiful historical location ruined by mediocre service and food. After attempting to order a Veggie sandwich only to be told they were out of almost all vegetable at the beginning of lunch, I ordered a turkey sandwich and a bowl of chili, and over... More

Due to the good reviews here, we chose this place over the Diner just across the street. Wrong! Food was served luke warm or cold. Bacon great! Cinnamon french toast dry & cold. Potatoes O'Brian were way undercooked & cold. Toast was OK. Had to ask for refill on coffee. Burrito served lukewarm and run of the mill taste.
