Hummus sandwich
Everyone gets an animal figurine so your server can find your table.

The Beehive Cafe in Bristol, Rhode Island is a cozy little spot that's always abuzz with customers craving a tasty meal. When you step inside, you'll notice their pastry rack loaded with delicious cakes, pies, cookies and more. Good luck resisting those treats as you place your order! You can sit wherever you want. There's some patio space out front, tables inside, but if you're lucky you'll be able to sit upstairs on their balcony.

I've always visited during lunch, but the Beehive Cafe opens bright and early everyday at 7:00 for breakfast. You can choose from traditional favorites like omelets, egg sandwiches and French toast. They also have bacon & brown sugar pancakes, lemon cornmeal pancakes and a black bean fritter on the menu.

For lunch, their menu is filled with sandwiches and salads. I really like their grilled cheese made with Vermont cheddar. During my last visit, I tried the hummus sandwich with tomato, cucumber, red onion and pea greens on flaxseed bread. Very good and filling. Forget the fries. Choose from dressed greens or chickpeas for a side. There are several salads at the Beehive Cafe including kale, lentil and arugula salads. Dinner is served three nights a week. The menu includes their lunch options with some heartier entrees including meatloaf, ricotta gnocchi, chicken pot pie, vegetable pot pie, mac & cheese and pizza. Of course, the chef offers up several specials each day.

What I really enjoy about The Beehive Cafe is that there are plenty of delicious meals for meat lovers and vegetarians alike. The food is local and healthy. Be sure to take a stroll down to Independence Park when you visit for a beautiful view of the ocean.
