Delicious food in a calm peaceful setting, with warm and friendly staff makes Place To Bee a beautiful wholesome experience. Definitely serves the best Italian food in the Nilgiris. The Slow Food concept also adds to the charm of the place!

Description
Creating a space that is not only a restaurant but a social enterprise that builds capacity of local and community people, promotes the values of Slow Food Principles, connects the Bee Museum activities through to our wider Keystone Foundation's base of work through consumers, producers, culture, ecological realities and challenges. Slow Food is a concept that was founded in Italy, which gives importance to locally produce "good, clean and fair" foods, safeguarding agricultural biodiversity at risk of extinction and giving visibility and the proper value to their supplying producers. To provide a space for backpackers, bird watchers, the off-road tourist, we have a simple bed and breakfast arrangement within the Bee Museum.
