Hi every one,

As some of you already know, we are doing dinner and serving wine and beer three nights a week at The Beehive. (THURS-SAT). It is going really well. Our aim is to provide top-notch food at affordable prices and judging by reaction so far we are achieving that goal. The Beehive has a unique, intimate atmosphere which lends itself to a casual dinner experience. After much thought we have decided to go to table service after 5pm (though the counter will remain open for coffee, pastries and to-go orders) Due to the small size of the cafe we cannot take reservations unless you have a large party of 6 or more.

I have to be honest and say that I am really proud of how much we are managing to achieve from our tiny kitchen. We continue to make everything from scratch, though we are increasingly having to bake at night because the kitchen is so busy during the day. If you do not see me around much it is because I am toiling away in the evening hours, Sunday thru Wednesday, in order to let Eli have full run of the kitchen during the day.

A chef from a very well known area restaurant was at The Beehive the other day and expressed astonishment that we could juggle all the components of a cafe-bakery-restaurant from our tiny kitchen. I was proud of my staff but also realized that "ignorance is bliss" - because I am essentially an amateur I am not bound by preconceptions of what can or cannot be done from a given space!

The Bristol 4th of July concert series is coming up. We will be OPEN FOR DINNER EVERY NIGHT. See you there.

All the best,

Jen Cavallaro

Three of us went last Friday night and it was awesome. Really awesome. I had a hamburger, but not just an ordinary hamburger, on potato bread which sort of looks like a hamburger bun but less bread and much tastier. Another one of us had the "best" macaroni and cheese. And the third one of us had the clam chowder and a chicken pot pie. The chicken pie admittedly was a bit small, about the size of a cupcake, which was a surprise but still tasty and it was good he ordered the clam chowder, too!! Wonderful and then we went back for breakfast. Super good.
