This was a great stop for orange juice, coffee and breakfast items. They had meat and vegetarian breakfast sandwiches as well as many baked goods. Tables upstairs and down, good spot for a conversation.

This is a great place to meet friends or a place to sit and read the newspaper. Good coffee. They have different varieties, like a "Starbucks" but not a chain. Excellent breakfast food. Omelets. Different varieties of bread. Served with fresh fruit. They have the kind of food that you feel good after you eat. It's not greasy, but it... More

Too many good things to mention about this place. I give five stars to the staff, to the food, to the ambience and view of bay and the selection/menu. This restaurant accommodates any diet – the carnivore, vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free etc. Everything is made with pride and superior ingredients. The chickpea burger is absolutely delicious – the black bean burger... More

We were in Bristol unexpectedly and found the beehive. The seating was upstairs (in the summer it looked like they have some outdoor seating) and cozy. The food was great. Had the Mediterranean plate which was more than ample.

If you love, home baked goods, and freshly made meals, then the Beehive is a must. From the Coffee, wide variety of Teas, and creative menu, you won't go wrong trying something new. By using all fresh ingredients, everything becomes a tastey meal.

My wife and I were visiting Bristol RI for a family event. As vegans, we were concerned about finding appropriate food in a small town. After Google search, we found this cafe a short walk away from our hotel. Friendly atmosphere, funky food selection and excellent results. We enjoyed both the place and the food and would definite seek out... More

On a cold Tuesday, my wife and I stopped in for lunch. Both of us ordered the Chicken sandwich. I also ordered a Hot Chocolate. The hot chocolate was one of the best hot chocolate I've had in a long time. Both of us thoroughly enjoyed our sandwiches. They also have excellent coffees.

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
