“A Baptism of Breakfast”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Coffee, check. Music at just the right breakfast volume, check. Courteous staff, check.

What a different breakfast experience I had at BK than the dinner one I had a few months back. The breakfast was warm, filling and delicious. Served in a matter of minutes. The coffee was hot and spot on. Our cups never, never got empty. These guys have breakfast down to a science. I had the FARMER’S BREAKFAST and the cakes were perfect and hot and served with some of Vermont's finest maple. Great spot for an early morning breakfast. I am sure by that by 9:00AM it's noisy with families and the hubbub of Saturday etc. But at 7:30AM ... it's breakfast, peaceful breakfast. Thanks for a great meal and great service to start my day.

“Good food it is, but fast food it ain't.”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

We drove up to Morrisville and stopped at the Bee's Knees for breakfast at a bit past 9:00 AM on Saturday. There was a table of six in the back and one guy drinking coffee up front. We ordered the baked French toast with a side of scrambled eggs. Seemed simple, but after 26 minutes (I checked) the kitchen hadn't even started on the order. It took another 18 minutes to get the order up. The baked French toast is made up the night before, so all you have to do is heat it up and scrambled eggs, ... well you know. Food is delicious, but be sure to have a bite to eat before you get there so you don't get too hungry while you wait.

“It's a fun place”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

It has live music (on a Friday night a 3-pc band was playing and we enjoyed their talents!), a bar which is in a prominent location of the restaurant, seating in the front (by the band and bar) and in the back; food was okay - liked the salads and the potato fries (wedges) but the black bean burger was fair but my daughter liked the mac & cheese with onions and ham as optional add-ins. It seemed like a good place for families.
