Old style little cafe with counter stools and small booths. Modest wait on Saturday mid-morning but worth it. Food is prepared well and served quickly. The staff is part of the atmosphere...don't aggravate them!

I had the best moussaka ever, and the surly waitresses weren't really! Now the owner, well that is another story, but kitschy is the best way to describe with fondness what I would say is an experience not to be missed. The food is so good and really worth going to as this is a venerable Boston institution! Who knew!

Our son discovered the Bee many years ago. It is now a must stop on every visit to Boston. The Blueberry Pancakes remain my favorite thing on the menu. It's always busy and sometimes crowded but the experience makes it worth a short wait.

Sit in Mel's section and enjoy a great meal and her friendly service. The osso bucco was wonderful. I had an omelette, full of cheese and ham. YUM. Good place to interact with the local crowd.
