BeerCon: The Busy Bee Cafe

The Busy Bee Cafe has returned to downtown Raleigh but with a different flair then its earlier setup in the same location back in the early 1900’s. Open early for the morning, coffee lovers and late for the night owls, the Busy Bee has an extensive menu for any time of the day.

A beer drinker’s spot for sure, the cafe serves up a great selection of brews picked by guys who know this stuff inside and out. Kegs are rotated frequently so lots of new beers are on tap for your drinking pleasure. Follow their blog or twitter for updates when new beers arrive.

  1. I have mixed feelings on this place. Great building, great atmosphere, great food. But table service has been quite slow every time I’ve been there. Even when it is not very busy or crowded. So bad, that I have just about given up on the place. Might try again since I did like the food…just hope they can get their service issues together.

  2. I have to second Rob’s view. It seems like each time I go to Busy Bee, the food is fine (except for the fried green tomatoes which were horrible, cheap, but horrible), but something goes awry with the service. I am hoping they iron out the issues, such as either slow or inattentive service.
