Looking for a locally owned place to eat breakfast, we found this restaurant through TripAdvisor and were SO HAPPY we stopped there! Tyler, our server, was friendly & attentive. He was particularly sensitive about a tree-nut allergy among our party. The food was excellent! There were plenty of gluten-free, soy-free, and vegan options on the menu. Some of the stand-outs among the food we ordered included:
• "Piggy Pancakes" - buttermilk pancakes with ample bacon in the batter and served with candied pecans and whipped cream
• "Ani Omelette" - omelette which included avocado, spinach, mushrooms, tomatoes, onions & white cheddar and served with multigrain toast
• "Blue Bee Pancakes" - blueberry pancakes with honey butter
• "Bumblebee Breakfast" - housemade nuts & seeds granola served over Greek yogurt with fresh fruit and berries

The restaurant had an "upscale" feel with a wide variety of thoughtfully designed and presented bee-related decorations. Prices were more than reasonable for the quality of food and service.

My family and I have very different dietary likes and needs (two vegetarians, four meat eaters, and one nut allergy) and everyone LOVED their meal. Between the six of us we tried three different pancakes (lemon poppyseed special, Blue Bee, and Piggycake) all of which were totally different and very tasty.

Great choices for vegetarians!

Tyler (our waiter) and the rest of the staff at Sleepy Bee were very aware and considerate of the nut allergy in our group.

Overall, a little pricy but well worth it for delicious food.

We tried this place after reading the reviews. We were not disappointed! We did have to wait quite a while. But, at least there's plenty of room to roam while you wait. Our group had omelettes, a variety of pancakes and eggs, bacon, and potatoes. It was all delicious. If we lived here, this place would be high on our list. The "piggy pancakes" were our favorite. Give this place a try!

Visited Sleepy Bee in Blue Ash after loving the Oakley location. The Blue Ash location is larger, and also offers outside seating. Still, it can get crowded, especially on the weekend.
Had lunch with husband on a Monday, sat outside on a beautiful summer day. Teaunna was our friendly, efficient server. We shared the Burnt Broccoli and Carrot salad, which Teaunna suggested. So glad she did, it was awesome!! We then each ordered our favorite sandwich, the Beekeeper, mine with a side of fresh fruit. Yummy as always!! Good coffee, great lunch.
So glad that Sleepy Bee expanded to a new, bigger location. More opportunities to bee happy and well fed!
