Breakfast at The Bee’s Knees was something pretty special. There were some really interesting dishes on the menu, and many options were customisable, so you could have it your way and try something different every time you visited.
The eggs were the highlight of the menu, being both organic and free range, and sourced from the local Applecheek Farm. If you were a vegan, then all the dishes with eggs could be made for you with tofu instead, this made The Bee’s Knees popular with vegan and vegetarians as well as meat eaters. Breakfast prices were very reasonable, which meant you could treat yourself to breakfast out more often.
They had three options for breakfast sandwiches, egg and cheese, egg, cheese and local farm fresh bacon and spinach and garlic for the more adventurous. These were all served up on a Thomas’ breakfast muffin. While this may seem like a small choice, you could add a wide range of extras to make your breakfast sandwich truly unique. You could add on things such as pesto, avocado, black beans, portabello mushrooms and Winding Brook farm ham.
There’s nothing quite like a breakfast burrito and The Bee’s Knees really knew how to make them well. Want a breakfast with a kick? Then you could go for the Mexican Spice burrito made with Tabasco sauce. As a Dr Seuss fan, I always smiled when I read ‘Green Eggs & Ham’ on the menu. The green part came from the fact that this burrito came with pesto. It was absolutely gorgeous too!
If you wanted something on the side, or simply wanted a lighter breakfast, you could go for toast or a muffin with jam, or a bowl of Nutty Steph’s granola. The hot oatmeal was perfect on a cold day and the yoghurt parfait was totally delicious too. Sometimes I’d have a breakfast burrito or sandwich, and then finish off with a yoghurt parfait as a sort of breakfast dessert! The parfait was layer with berries and granola. If you didn’t want a huge breakfast, or you were in a hurry, this was great choice as it left you feeling quite full.
