Great coffee, such friendly, well trained and professional staff. The Hive is also a bakery and stocks organic vegetables and niche groceries. Well worth a visit

I came here for a late breakfast and enjoyed a customised vegetarian breakfast with extra avocado and halloumi. Every member of staff was efficient, friendly and interested in how I was enjoying my meals. Fantastic strong cup of tea too. The chocolate and peanut butter...cake looked amazing but I just didn’t have room. What a shame - I shall just have to go back!More

Hive is a diamond in Blackpool’s crown! Amazing feeling/atmosphere inside, serving quality, local produce at a reasonable price. Marketed as an “urban farm shop” and it’s a great way to describe Hive. L shaped seating with the centre of the shop overflowing with fruit, veg,...jams, sauces, oil, cakes etc. This place really is one of a kind! The food and coffee we ordered was first class and would love to come again. Please come to Liverpool, Bold St. would be perfect for you!!More

We live in st Anne’s and visit Blackpool quite often. This is the first time we have eaten here but it won’t be the last. The food and service were excellent, we were told it could be a 30 minute wait for food, but it...was only 15 minutes. The food is all prepared and cooked in the kitchen, from fresh produce. The tomatoes were truly delicious as were all the ingredients. I had a ham and tomato toastie this was not on the menu but they made it specifically as I don’t eat cheese. Wonderful can highly recommend it and by the way their cakes are scrumptious. Did you know you can also buy their fresh produce too and plants an all round winner.More

Visiting from Glasgow with my friend. Popped in this morning for breakfast and the service and the food was absolutely amazing. We had an English breakfast and were not disappointed, very very tasty. Highly recommend. Will be visiting again tomorrow before we go home. Staff...welcoming and friendly and nothing was too much bother. Come for a visit you will not be disappointed.More

No Anne.There are approx 12 tables outside...you just grab one when it's empty and the friendly waiter/waitress will deal with your entire visit and explains all you need to know. You won't be disappointed.
