“A really nice place, good food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2013

We stumbled upon Bumble and Bee by accident while ambling around Exmouth and stopped for tea and cake. My Lemon polenta cake was lovely, and the other half's small cream tea was good as well - the single scone option is a good idea.
We went back a couple of days later for a late breakfast - normal eggs benedict and the smoked salmon version, and they were really very good. The (own made) hollandaise was very nice and the eggs were poached to perfection.

“Best ever carrot cake!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

My husband and son were in this cafe by chance on opening day and raved about it to me afterwards, so today my husband was determined to treat me to a coffee and allow me to judge for myself. I was convinced that we would be too late for service as our (his!!) shopping trip had taken a little longer than we'd anticipated, but the lovely owner was happy to serve us even though it was only ten minutes before closing time. The coffee was a creamy latte - perfect. I was beguiled into buying a piece of the delicious looking carrot cake, which my husband expected me to share apparently. It had been baked by one of the staff members and it was, without doubt, the best carrot cake I've ever eaten. I shall be back to sample the other delights asap!
