Some adult supervision here would be gr8. There appears to be no senior management and a change in attitude for those taking the orders needs to happen. For a busy little place, the kitchen staff can be seen chatting it up and seemingly unfocused on the tasks at hand. It's not the same BeeHive when Chef Eli was there. It... More

My family went to the beehive for brunch and I can say that they continue to provide quality food with local ingredients. The food was excellent. On Sundays they take the order at the counter and then you get your table and they will bring the food to the table. I recommend getting there early since the place is always... More

Great little cafe! I've been there several times and the food is great. Small sitting area outside and seating inside and up the stairs. You can get food to go and sit and eat in the park across the street as well.

We came for lunch and we were not quite sure what to do. You order downstairs, then find a table upstairs. A boy runs up and down the stairs continually bringing food orders. He must be in fabulous shape! I was impressed with my BLT and side salad. My husband was especially fond of his fried chick peas. Fresh, good... More

The Beehive is as it sounds - a beehive of a place. Off a side street in downtown Bristol, the food is reliably good! The interior however needs some sprucing up - it's a bit worn. It welcomes you to sit a relax, no need to hurry, the locals and visitors alike eat here.
