Hidden gem in Miami - Edit

After googling vegetarian options, I'm happy to run into the Beehive. At first when I walked into the health food store I thought I had the address wrong. Tucked away in the back was something that reminded me of the food trucks I'm familiar with living up north. After 2 full plates of fantastic food and a couple empanadas to go, I was certain I made the right choice. I've read some reviews about the cleanliness and all I can say is for the tight space they operate in its just fine in my opinion. Can't wait to return to Miami and visit the Beehive again

Pros: Healthy food, Friendly staff, Good variety

Cons: No visible prices

good food, not clean! - Edit

i really went for the empanadas that i read about. i ignored the yelp reviews that the place wasn't clean since there were some defending them saying that the place is just old. the place is old & NOT clean. that being said, the food is really good, ALL vegan from what Carlos told me (i see it's listed on here as vegetarian only?) and well priced. i just couldn't enjoy it after sitting there long enough to watch flies crawling all over all the open containers of food that had likely been out all afternoon. (it was 4pm). too bad! :( see my full review here: http://cameraphonevegan.com/2011/07/29/beehive/

Pros: all vegan?, good food , well priced

Cons: food out at room temp, flies, dirty hands staff

Dissgusting - Edit

I have been a vegetarian for quite a while. This year I became a vegan and I am loving it!.However here in Miami is hard to find vegan restaurants that are very good.I consider that I am an excellent cook, and when I go out I am looking for the same type of food quality. I went to Beehive because of the reviews, and someone had recommended it. WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT, I didn't mind that the place was small but it was extremely unclean.Every inch on the little place was a mess and down dirty. The guy at the counter had dirty fingernails. When I asked for a green tea with soy milk, the milk was rancid, the lazy Susan where they keep their agave was sticky and messy. I ordered an empanada and when I took a bite was frozen in the middle. If this place has some clientele, this people are desperate or they don't know anything about good food. I know they have been in that location for a very long time. They are in desperately need of a makeover and a serious review of their menu,staff and cleanliness. Horrible and painful experience...

Everything you need - Edit

I visited Beehive a couple of days ago and I thought It was the most complete vegetarian and vegan place ever. The place looks little and humble but it sure does its job. You go inside and you feel like family to everone there. It has all sorts of whole food products and a food bar. I would recommend this place for sure.

Pros: Food bar, whole foods, friendly environment

Truly an experience - Edit

From the first time I walked in here (slightly skeptical I may add) I was immediately welcomed with a smile and put at ease. Fair warning-the ambiance and slightly cluttered, antiquated shop may be off-putting to some. The people, however, are a delight. I had no idea what to try first, and was offered a variety of options. I had the carob smoothie and soy picadillo empanada, both SO delicious! Even the empanada shell is obviously made on site. I took to my sister a vegan chocolate cake (I just had to taste it) and split pea soup, even SHE (a true junk-foodie and carnivore) was amazed. I try to go back at least a few times a month. Soups, entrees, and desserts change daily. Almond cake (vegan, gluten free, sugar free) is incredibly delectable! Never a disappointment, a must try!

Pros: Delicious food, good value, great staff

Cons: slightly cluttered

Great! - Edit

I try and go here every Saturday. The best time to get the fresh food of the day is between 1:15-1:30. Try the Rainforest drink, it is amazing. The cakes are also the best cakes I have ever had! Two soups everday, empanadas, bean dishes, etc.....very very good!

Pros: good food, healthy

Cons: small counter, not the cleanest place, sometimes very packed

Great food, but if looking for ambiance . . . - Edit

The food is great, fresh, tasty, and very clean. You have to know that Carlos arrives sometime around 12.15 - 12.30 with the fresh items of the day. Do not think that you are going to arrive early to avoid the lunch rush. You will and you will also avoid the fresh daily foods. You will only get what MIGHT have been left-over from the previous day and the standard salads, juices and veggie/tempeh sandwiches.

The seating is bar stool up to a counter. Sometimes you have to wait for a place to sit. Staff is friendly and sometimes distracted by all the activity etc.

All-in-all, I have never had anything bad here. The deserts are amazing and I always take several back to the office for the meat eaters to try. They love it!

Pros: Fresh, Friendly staff, Inexpensive

Cons: No seating for more than 8, Hard to get staff to wait on you., Time of fresh food arrival - late.

Delicious and Full of Choices - Edit

I just stopped by the Beehive today, and wanted to write an updated review. It looks like the visitor in February caught an off-day or something. Today the place was packed, humming with activity, and there were lots of options. The menu lists a variety of delicious salads and sandwiches, full of fresh veggies and with choices of baked tofu, grilled seitan, and tempeh steaks. In addition, the daily specials were a tomato-vegetable-seitan stew, lentils and rice, and black eyed peas. I am in love with the Rain Forest juice - a blend of carrot, banana, lime, apple, avocado (!), and other delicious fruits and veggies. They also have one of the best vegan cakes I've ever had - a blueberry cake - and make what seems to be a rockin' banana 'custard'. They are open Monday-Saturday, 10 am - 7 pm. Enjoy!

Pros: Excellent food, Friendly staff, Free samples!

Cons: Crowded, Small, Can be hard to get staff's attention

I'm not sure if something has changed... - Edit

Based on the good reviews, I went to Beehive. I'm not sure if I'm missing something...my only option to eat was a veggie burger. It was homemade and served in a pita with fresh veggies. It was good, about $5, but nothing too special. I guess I expected more than one item on the menu? I went on Saturday, is that a down day? I wanted empanadas!!

Pros: Nice staff

Cons: only one option, kind of dusty inside

I dream about this place - Edit

Its tucked away in the back of a little natural foods store. There are a few bar stools usually filled with talkative people. I grabbed a couple of empanadas for the plane ride home. Just down right amazing. Flavor explosions. The chef is great and friendly and will let/insist you sample everything. This isn't a place you can go with a lot of people, there isn't a lot of seating. Its awesome solo or just with a friend. Its a little bit of a drive out of Miami, but worth it. I was able to swing it before a flight! I can't wait to go back.

Pros: food, empanadas, chef

Cons: few seats

So much fun! - Edit

SUPER friendly owner gives out samples to everyone sitting at the bar. Delicious fresh food and whole fruit smoothies you need to eat with a spoon. Makes you feel like you're a part of something. Great find!

Pros: Delicious food, Friendly people, Daily specials

Cons: A bit hard to find
