A visit to The Bee’s Knees for lunch was always a special occasion. Whether it was a quick meal on your lunch break from work with your colleagues, or a lingering luncheon with friends that spread out into the afternoon, you were guaranteed a warm welcome, a good time and a totally delicious taste sensation. You’d find dishes on the menu that you just wouldn’t find anywhere else, and every one was cooked to perfection.
When the weather is cold, there’s nothing better than a bowl of hot soup to warm you up. You could buy just a cup of soup, or a bowl, depending on your appetite. The cup made a great starter if you were having a larger meal.
The curried spinach soup was delightful, it wasn’t too spicy, just hot enough to give you a little heat with the thick and creamy coconut soup mixed with sweet potato, carrot, spinach and peas. I particularly liked the beer and cheddar soup. It sounds a little strange but it was really tasty and packed full of flavour.
If you wanted something more substantial, then that was no problem either. You could opt for their signature cheddar macaroni and cheese, which was to die for, or one of their many sandwiches. Their pulled pork baguette was a personal favourite, cooked in the Southern style with an apple-braised BBQ sauce and smothered in melted cheese. If you wanted to keep it simple, then you go for an organic peanut butter and jelly sandwich, the perfect comfort food. They did a tasty tuna sandwich which you could choose to have with organic greens, or with melted cheese. I always went for the tuna melt version, but the other version was particularly healthy and nutritious. All the sandwiches were served with their own home made apple sauce. This was a real treat, and it was great because you knew you were going to get it no matter which sandwich you ordered. So many other places charge extra for their special sauces, but not The Bee’s Knees!
