Cheer up, Sleepy Jean.
Oh, what can it mean.
To a daydream believer
And a homecoming queen
What was not classic; but rather, fresh, contemporary and delicious was brunch at Sleepy Bee.
A few friends and I arrived at 11am one Saturday and waited about 45 minutes for a table. There was a comfortable, private waiting area in the back (private parties someday?) and we happily helped ourselves to the complimentary coffee and waited for our seats.
After getting settled at our window-side table, we perused the menu. I loved the menu’s focus on local and seasonal foods.
After much chatting and coffee drinking, I opted for The Broakley: Blue Oven Bakery bricohe bun, thick-cut bacon or sausage patty, sprouts, broken yolk egg, avocado, white cheddar, onion, tomato and a side of hive fries.
I chose bacon for my sandwich, and asked for a side salad instead of hive fries which the friendly staff happily accommodated. I also ordered a junior size smoothie: Immunity Bee: Berry blend, power greens, orange juice, bee pollen and organic soy milk. The verdict? Positively delicious. I love a good egg sandwich, and this with its combination of avocado, cheese, bacon and toasty, buttery brioche fit the all the trappings of a pretty slick breakfast sandwich. The options of smoothies on the menu was welcome too. The Immunity Bee was refreshing and fruity, a perfect complement to the rich, savory sandwich.
I think you’ll love Sleepy Bee; gorgeous food and sunny atmosphere. Those so inclined, it seemed very family-friendly, but there were plenty of couples and singles dining as well.
Head over there and enjoy a cozy breakfast.
